Iím a White Republican Raising a Black Child: Deal With It
Patheos ^ | April 26, 2012 | Nancy French

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 we’ve had the audacity to appear in public with our family, we’ve 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 tonight’s 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.)

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.

Because they specifically were aiming for your head to explode over what is a private matter.

“Why would a White couple adopt a Black child?”

Why shouldn’t they?

Why go to the other side of the world to adopt?


I wondered about that, too. There are so many black children who need homes in the US. But maybe they found her through a church mission or some activity of service.

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.

You’re obsessed.
People have tried to explain this to you but you seem not to get it. I’ll try one more time; then I suggest strongly that everyone ignore you.

If you are a white American couple seeking to adopt a child in the US, you will only be permitted to adopt a white child. Forty or fifty years ago it was possible to adopt a healthy, normal white child from a healthy, normal white American teenager who “just made a mistake.” But changes in our society have meant that many American women who get pregnant unexpectedly either abort their babies or keep them and raise them without a husband. A disturbing number of the white babies given up for adoption are given up because mom has addiction problems, is incarcerated, or has some other pathology. After a long, expensive, stressful wait, you can end up with a child who has been abused, brain-damaged, exposed to drugs in utero, etc. I’ve seen friends heartbroken and financially ruined by their sad, damaged adoptive children.

You can also find that after you’ve come to love a child, the birth parents show up and want your child back. Courts have taken adopted kids from their adoptive parents and given them back to the strangers who are their biological parents.

Many of the same problems exist if you try to adopt from other nations where there are a lot of white people. Adopting from Eastern Europe can also bring out criminals who try to extort money from the American parents.

So since white kids are hard to find, people who want to adopt a child have to go where the kids are. Not all of them are absolutely obsessed with having a child whose race is the same as theirs. Not all of them are prepared to do business with the Chinese, who sell their girls to Westerners.

So one ends up going to adopt a child where there are assurances that there will be no later legal problems, where there is a serious need, where children are available for adoption without government harassment, and where one particular little face ensnares the heart forever.

Okay? Do you understand now? Children don’t have any color. The heart knows nothing of race. The decision to adopt a child isn’t about race but about love.

“VOTE against her best interests”???

Her best interests, moron, are to be raised by a loving family that will make sure she can be all she can be - proving that you don’t have to be white to excel in life.

Pasty white? Fish belly white? White skin is beautiful too. I know you
wouldn’t use such negative descriptives of dark skin. People who have white or pale skin shouldn’t do it to themselves either. Creamy ivory or pale porcelain skin has been considered a beautiful tradition for thousands of years.

Those little ones have no idea they are of two races, they’re just being children

When my twins were little, they would identify people by what color clothing they were wearing. If a child had a white shirt on, she would be "that little white girl"....or black or green or purple.

One day at the store, they were quite enamored with a baby in a yellow sleeper. On the way home they told me - "We need another baby....a yellow baby"

White skin is beautiful too.

Not even if I starched and ironed it. ;)

Granted, some can be. But that doesn't apply in my case.

It's not because you are white but that you are a conservative. These people are pigs.

Don’t be so sure.

I recall a story here a few months ago about a white marine beaten to death by two black marines...because he was married to a black woman.

Dems are race obsessed. Its how they see the world. That, and they think they own minorities. They resent it if any racial minority slips outside their control.
