Are African Babies the New White Fashion Accessory ?
Have you noticed that since the beginning of this century, that rich white celebs have been going to Africa and adopting children? Can blacks go to Europe and do the same? Hell can blacks do that in America? Do you think that this trend is setting these kids up for failure? Will they have a false sense of reality? Is it fair to the children?
I think it might be to some celebrities, but mostly it's so the children can have better lives. I don't think that white people are the only ones adopting African children... Oprah sponsors families there all the time. I think it's setting them up for success, they will have the best schooling, best clothes and health care. If anything, they are some of the luckiest people.
To me it seems more of a "pet project" than anything else. There are plenty of poor Black children in America yet going abroad seems more sterile and unblemished.
Oprah said it best "Black kids in Africa would be more appreciative". Now she has a whole school full of little "pet projects".
I think the celebrities think it makes them seem more Worldly. And for the sake of $$$$ they want every culture to Love them.
However, If I came across a black child that was orphaned, and I just fell in love with that child, I would probably want to be his or her mother. Or especially if some of our black friends suddenly died and it was children I already loved.
BTY, If someone is half white and half black (like my niece) why do people just say they are black?
And where did the term African American come from? There are plenty of black people that are not of African heritage. I guess that would make me, an Irish, German, English, Native American (Indian), and Dutch American.
But then again, how often do you really meet anyone that is the color white or black? It's usually shades of colors. Just sayin'

God said, "I will put enmity between thy seed and her seed. Thy shall bruise his heel and she shall bruise thy head."Many believers thought this prophecy was talking about Cain and his offspring, against Eve' offspring but that's contradictory in nature. Cain is also of Eve's offspring...

I changed from question to forum to allow commenters to have more space to express their opinions. I initiated the question, and now forum, to discuss reactions to Michelle Obama's statement at the DNC. Her words: “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by...

Are some pure Asian, Indian or African babies born with blue eyes? Why or why not?I've been told that some Asian or African babies are born with blue eyes. Is this true? Is there a reason for this (as generally Asians, Indians or Africans have brown or green eyes.)

98% of African Americans approve of Obama's job as president, is this a racial or racist component?
