Skip to comments.Iím a White Republican Raising a Black Child: Deal With It
Posted on 04/28/2012 7:35:47 PM PDT by feralcat
...This Presidential campaign cycle is very different for our family than the one in 2008. This time around, we have a four-year-old daughter we adopted from Ethiopia two years ago...
Because weve had the audacity to appear in public with our family, weve been getting hate mail from liberals who are deeply offended that a white family would raise a black child (the Huffington Post posted a video of Naomi and me at CPAC and it generated more than 1,000 comments, many of them utterly vile). Usually, I laugh at baseless criticism and it inspires me to work even harder at artfully annoying my critics. But when I get accused of actually harming my daughter by daring to raise her, it infuriates me. See, for example, an excerpt from tonights Facebook message:
I feel so sorry for your little girl! She has a hard complex life ahead of her! She should not be raised by people who vote against her best interests.
(It was longer and much more offensive.)

The left just *hates* when political conservatives do not neatly fit into their stereotypes of being selfish and/or racist.
The mythology must be maintained.
I’ve known refugees from Africa, Eritrea, black people, who have raised their children outside of the primitive, savage black American ghetto, and made sure these kids stayed out of that stinking, perverse culture’s influence.
Hubby and I are listening to Stephen King’s “The Stand” on audio book.
For anyone not familiar with it, it takes place after a bio-weapon is mistakenly released and almost everybody in the world is dead. And there is going to be some ultimate Stand taken against evil (or so it appears).
Anyway, the best part of the book so far concerns an extremely old black woman (108!) who is playing some BIG PART on the good side in this ultimate battle.
She is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican, actually says the FDR and his cohorts were COMMUNISTS and received on her 100th birthday a letter from President Regan congratulating her for reaching such a great age and for being the 5th oldest registered Republican in the country.
LOL, I loved that part!
My impression of Stephen King has been that he is a garden variety liberal, but you’d never know it from this book. So far, anyway.
Stories like this make my blood boil. Those girls still visit me when they come home from school. They were like my own daughters for several years.
Those girls’ success in life proves that liberals are the worst racists of all and must be fought to the gates of hell!
My son-in-law is first generation American, his parents were refugees from Pol-Pot's Cambodia. My SIL is very dark skinned. My grandbabies are dark skinned.
Do you have a problem with that?
I've stood in loco parentis to teenage black girls when my girlfriend was deployed to a war zone.
Do you have a problem with that?
I'm not even pasty white. I'm fish-belly white.
Get over it.
Because she needed a family.
Because they love others as themselves?
Because the parents want a child and the child needs a home.
The liberals hate.
Sure it’s not DNA.1950?
The first photo we have of our daughter (taken in her orphanage)
She is going to have a blessed life. Ignore the mind-warped critics.
Because they see a child who needs them and their love. They are not looking at the child’s skin color.
Good gravy! What a beautiful child!
Ouch, they would hate my niece who is a doctor married to a minister who has four boys by birth and a black daughter adopted from Rwanda. Need I even add that they are conservative.
Terrific book. The mini-series, out on DVD and starring Gary Sinise, is a pretty good adaptation, too. And Stephen King is a flaming Liberal.
I would assume that they wanted a child and weren't racist.
It could be that simple
Who wouldn’t want to adopt that cutie?
Because there is no such thing as a binding contract with a women in this country when children are involved.
Now, that’s good question, I mean it. It’s like a supermarket of adoptable children out there, isn’t it. You can go to Vietnam or the Ukraine (parents likely alkies), or Ethopia, or a number of other places. Still, I suspect that the race of the child is for the seekers a rather minor consideration. I could be wrong.
I won't pretend to know all the details, but if they are
saving a child from this hell-hole I wouldn't get hung up on
a few technicalities.
You are assuming they went there because they wanted a black child.
Do you know which countries have the best international adoption programs?
For the answer to that, look at the regulations, the time required, and the expenses of adopting an American baby with adopting somewhere else.
>Why go to the other side of the world to adopt?<
Oh, I don’t know, maybe there aren’t enough available babies in this country? My nephew adopted a child from Eastern Europe because he and his wife would have been on a waiting list for years. Not only that, they were able to give a child who was in an orphanage a loving home.
Frankly, it’s a moving target.
What was a speedy process last year may have slowed to a crawl this year. Furthermore, each country has idiosyncrasies that can make or break your adoption.
Because real love does not care about race?
Having taken on two beautiful stepdaughters I will say that
there is the hassle of mining the front yard and putting out
all that barbed wire.
I’ve had the racist crap thrown at me as well.
Until the time I show them our family picture of my brother who is married to a beautiful Filipina..
“Yes they are: they went to Ethiopia to adopt. Thus, they specifically wanted to adopt a Black child. Why? “
Curious do you have kids?
Why would someone not go to a hellhole like Ethiopia and rescue a kid?
Why does the skin color matter in the least?
That’s been my theory why Bill Gates and others choose to spend their fortunes on charity work outside the borders of this country. Who needs to deal with regulations, lawsuits, greedy interest groups in the US?! The corruption in the Third World is so much more straight forward and easy to deal with, and your reputation stateside doesn’t suffer a bit.
Oh boy....doesn’t that photo warm my heart!!! Just beautiful!
Little Coulton’s mommy laughed her ass off at daycare last week when I told him “ So you’re the first one to get *the talk*” about my baby girl, huh?”
I swear he smirked at me like he was 30 instead of 3!
Why does it matter? A kid is a kid. God made them all.
No, it doesn't.
Why wouldn’t they adopt a black child who needed a home?
Stephen King lives half the year (probably a couple more days) here in Sarasota, FL, the rest in Maine. I say probably a couple more days than half the year since, as a good hypocritical liberal, King wants to get free taxation by having his primary residence in a tax-free state (Florida). He has a Prius which he crowed about in the newspaper and was “filling it up” at the city government plug-in which was free. Just what you’d expect from a liberal - let somebody else pay his bills even though he’s worth gazillions of dollars.
“The Stand” is a good book but listen to the “Gunslinger” series on CD.
BUT, don’t ever think that Stephen King is anything other than a flaming hypocritical Liberal. Good author though.
“Why would a White couple adopt a Black child?”
Why shouldn’t they?
Why go to the other side of the world to adopt?
digging the moat is pretty tough, too!
All American adoptions are “open” by default.
You don’t adopt American Children unless you live in another country...if you’re smart, that is.
If an adult (or adults) choose to take in and nurture a needy child, what difference does political association or ethnicity make? It’s just pointless, political claptrap that concerns only the small-minded.
While buying my groceries at Wal Mart today, I saw two families with mized racila children. Those little ones have no idea they are of two races, they’re just being vhildren. Sadly, society will teach them otherwise ... and the black culture in America will do a number on their minds, trying to make them ‘black’ or made to feel loathed. I blame vermin like Jesse and Al, and little barry bastard commie for that evil in our society. These are just children. I can guarantee that God does not identify them by their racial genetic makeup.
... just beautiful!
