A statement made on the floor of the state house last month in Montgomery got a loud reply this afternoon from angry parents.

Today at the state house, white parents who adopted mixed race or minority children said it's time for Holmes to 'pay up.'

Beverly Owings is an adoptive mother of a 13-year-old bi-racial daughter. "I would like for him to 'man up.' He's made the statement. He needs to put his money where is mouth is."

I am sure there are more than you think. I know of at least two families who have adopted white children into their African American families (I wanted to write Black but they don’t like that term.... they are somewhat younger than myself so.....)

I’d love to see a IQ study of black adults adopted as children by white couples and see if they break the “85” barrier ... seems to me the problem is “environment” ,, and “attitude”.
