Agelina's Adoptions

Updated on May 17, 2010

African Child Adoptions

Angelina Jolie the famous actress and her husband have adopted two children from Africa. Angelina is pregnant and expecting anytime. Angelina and Brad can afford the very best of what this world has to offer. On the surface this seem like a good idea, maybe it will heal some of the wounds of the pass. However, I don't think so, it want even scratch the surface. The calculated amount o people transported from and annihilated can not be smoothed over by a few adoption no matter how well the intentions are. The present day Caucasian did not create the problems of the past but they benefit from it. The thing to do is start a  serious dialogue on how best to re-distribute the wealth of both Africa and America.Recently, an article appeared in the academic section of the library that stated the following: For 350 years people were worked in Africa and did not receive a cent. This made an extremely strong economy for White Africans in America the people reduced to property were worked for 250 years without a dime. Now, How do you correct this without a serious re-distribution of both land and wealth effort?

      Great Hub. As an adoptee myself, I can say that the children might experience issues later in life with differences in ethnicities and cultures within the family. But it seems like they are well-cared for... Interesting!
