Have an opinion?
Yes, I do. To me it's just adoption and when a child is adopted from an early age, around infant age, it's not really a problem. "Race" is an outdated term used about people with a different skin tone or hair texture. "Race" itself doesn't feel anything different than being 170 cm tall instead of 168 cm. It's just physical characteristics. It's people who choose to bully and who tends to always find an excuse for bullying that's the problem, not the different complexion itself. Parenthood aren't all about biology, physical resemblance etc. Love, the relationship between the family members and what they're doing together are what's important here. We're all of the same specie. Culture and language aren't something you're born with, but something you gets taught from an early age.So there won't really be any [big] differences between white parents having black children instead of white children. Most people won't feel any differences until prejudiced people point it out. How do I know? I've first hand experiences.
Depends on whether you think racial identity is important to the development of a child.
It is, if we are talking about a child who is not white. Sooner or later, society will let them know that their race matters, for the worst reasons.
@menina Yes, I understand, and I don't have first hand experience but have been told that minority kids having white parents creates problems for the kids with their peers as they are growing up.
Yes, I can imagine what kind of problems they have.
I've first hand experiences and I can confirm it's not a problem itself, but rather the society that may be outdated sometimes overthinking biology. Some people thinks biology matter regardless of race when it comes to who's the real parents are etc. It wouldn't be an issue at all if more members of the society just accepted adoption and not every children resembling their parents.
Thanks for MHO!
I think a child in need of a safe & loving home is most important. The ethnicity or race of the children & parents doesn’t seem overly important. Compared to this child being taken out of the system & into what they pray for nightly, their own family. I can appreciate the difficulties that could rise with certain differences among skin type, hair, racial judgments & discriminators. But I believe the saying it takes a village to raise a child is so true. Seek out others you can trust in your community to help with anything you may feel could be a gap in your child’s life. I think working to understand each other more is the best thing we can do for our future collectively.
There are a lot of children who need love and support, but I don't agree with interracial adoption. A white parent won't be able to teach a black child to deal with racists. They don't know how it feels to black and being attacked because of our skin color.And this is valid for any kind of interracial adoption, not only between white parents and black children.This the only reason why I don't agree with this type of adoption.
Thank you for the MHO!
I appreciate concerns about it, but kids need good homes. That's most important.
I'm actually not concerned, I agree with you fully. Was just interested to know what people thought as I do know a few people that believe that for example white parents wouldn't know how to meet the needs of a black child with regards to their hair etc and vice versa.
Well, we don't want to see it become a thing where the dominant class rips children out of the arms of their communities. This happened with native American children all over North America. It happened with Aboriginal children in Australia.It could be poised to happen again with immigrant children in the US.It has even been used as a torture tool in times of war in the world.When it is widespread and systematic, it can destroy entire cultures.But that doesn't mean it's always bad or wrong when it happens on a case-by-case basis. Like I said, there are children who need good homes out there.At some point, we do have to address the systemic inequalities that land so many children in such a situation though. Adopting them off forever is not going to produce the just society we long for.
I believe they should be adopted by people of their own race. That way they can relate more to their child and they know how to deal with problems associated with race.
LMAO this opinion sounds so stupid😂
@Davis04 What's stupid about it? I don't necessarily agree with it but it's a perfectly reasonable point to make.
I strongly disagree with this.
I agree race matters. I also think you should help the children of your race first. I dont care if some people think thats stupid or not. Seems like common sense to me.
@CoffeeWC I absolutely agree with you. This is not racist nor stupid, it's logical.
Thank you @menina
A good parent is a good parent. It is wrong to prevent a kid from having a good parent just because of the kids skin colour. Minorities have a higher rate if poverty, so fewer kids who are minorities will be adopted if they can ownly go into a family of their own race.
@nathanp97 believe they should does not mean force. Asians are less likely to be in poverty than whites.
Some parents are white with black spouse and have black children. Race doesn't matter. Whatever race issues you'll have with child you'll soon become an expert in sure
? What do you mean by force? People should be allowed to adopt any kid they want, assuming they are good parents. Also Asians are ownly 1 race of minorities in America. There are many others. Additionally, I may be wrong, but I dont think Asian culture is big on adopting kids.
@nathanp97 What in saying is preferring something doesn't mean you want it enforced by law.im well aware Asians are not the only minorities in America. What im saying is it will be more accurate to say non Asian minorities.Can you cite that? Saying Asians are less likely to adopt is pretty extraordinary claim. Not saying its not true. I just want to see the evidence to know for sjre.
I'm basing it off of some Chinese people refusing to have girls and how honor and bloodlines seem to be very important in Chinese and Japanese culture. I couldn't find any stats on it quickly, but I also said "I maybe wrong." I never said I had a study on it. "Help the children in your own race first." That's what you said. What I'm saying is race isn't important and any good parent should be able to adopt any kid. If white people adopted ownly white kids until all white kids were adopted there wouldn't be enough parents willing to adopt the other minority children, as white people adopt kids more than other races in america.
@nathanp97 There are some people of all ethnicities that do a given topic. doesn't necessarily mean it a trend or part of their culture. Its just very irresponsible to make claims about a group of people without evidence to back it up.Race does apparently matter even to you. You said Asians and Whites have different rates of adoption. Maybe not but maybe they will encourage people of other groups to start adopting more as well. Assuming your claim is even correct. The fact is though white people do need to start caring more about their own than their current path of caring for everyone but their own. Im not saying it has to be absolute nor would it. I just think it should be a trend.
@nathanp97 Also why do so many people make assumptions about Asian people without any evidence to back it up? This is no where near the first time I've come across something like this.
I've first hands experiences with this and I can confirm race doesn't matter that much. Language, culture and how good your family members are are way more important. In addition people would always find an excuse to exclude people racial or not.
I didn't make a claim dumb ass. I made an assumption, to which I said it was and gave my reasons as to why. I didn't say it I guessed it. They are 2 very different things. I was basing it on there culture and how they are raised in it. That doesn't mean people can't or shouldn't adopt a kid because of its race. White people do adopt more than other races in america, in gross numbers. White kids are adopted at hire rates this any other rece. "Take care of their own." My race is the human race, so any kid is my race. Why are you agaist people of a different race giving kids with no family or someone to love them the love and care they deserve? What are your reasons for being so against it?I made a guess based on what I know. If I did lots of research I could likely back it up. I'm not saying it is true or false. It is a hypothesis that I had and shared.
The only limiting factors on adoption should be in regards to whether the adults can be good enough parents. Other than that, adopt whoever you want.
Yea but I mean like gay people should not be able to adopt.
@FroztyDaHoeMan yeah they should, there are already many more orphans than couples who want to adopt them
@Billy1002 Growing up in the orphanage will fuck them up way less than if gay people adopt them though.
@FroztyDaHoeMan, it's better with gay parents than no parents - although there's more advantages having a mother and a father.
@curiousnorway That is if the gay parents don't end up fucking them
@FroztyDaHoeMan Gays are no more likely to molest children than straight people.
@curiousnorway No advantage to the children. Children adopted by gay couples do just as well as children adopted by straight couples.
@slatyb that is not true they are mentally sick if they can do sick stuff with a man they would do it with a child as well.
@FroztyDaHoeMan You are just pulling assertions out of your ass. Actual sociological studies show that children raised by gay couples fare just as well as children raised by straight couples.
@slatyb No actually it shows that they were abused by gay couples everyone knows that.
It depends on the adoptive parents and the wider family. Many who grow up as the only ethnic minority in an all white family for instance do have lots they don't like about it, even though they love their family, but I think if they at least have some cousins and stuff with the same race it's a bit better. Also depends on the parents, how much they can really relate to people and how much empathy they can have because if it's hard for them they will never know what their child is facing and won't be able to prepare them for it or say the right things when it happens. It's not just about love, even lots of crack heads love their kids, it doesn't mean it's the right place for them to be or that it is good for them mentally. And mentally, you need a kid to be as healthy as possible, because when you don't have that everything will just be much harder in life. There are even mixed kids who don't have one parent and grow up as the only mixed one in the entire family, and even they often have a hard time, but not as much sometimes I suppose. And they're still half that race, not fully something else.
It really depends.The society does often point that thing out and it is really sad.I am of Indian descent and my wife is white.Our kids look latin-ish, white-ish.We both wanted to adopt a kid to make a difference in someone's life.I have to admit we only wanted to adopt a white or latin kid and not an Asian or black.Not because we had some 'ethnicity issues' with them but just because they would not look a part of the family to other people and we never wanted that to happen to little kid.The society always telling him or her that she is adopted and her real parents abandoned her.Anyways we adopted two little twin sisters and they are 5 years old right now.But when I am with my girls some people do ask me if they are my kids because even though my wife is white they still don't look mixed.To me they are my girls. They may not have any brownish tinch to their skin or have blonde hair even though their mom dosen't but we are their Daddy and mommy who love them a lot.In the end what matters is connecting emotionally.
Doesn't matter unless you're trying to make a some kind of a point by doing it.The cultural environment should be a factor to consider too. If I live in a place, where the majority of the population is of one race and I adopt a child of a different race, I should be prepared to responsibly deal with the inevitable question "why am I different?" It could be a life long problem if the regional population has a tendancy to be nationalistic.But as far as upbringing is concerned, the child's eace will make no difference.The environment in which you raise a child should always be the first thing you consider, because he/she will be influenced exclusively by the parents only until they are 3years of age.After that, the social environment will gradually take over.I think a most parents don't get that.
No problem. I support a child having home any day than without.I put it this way.I think we put too much effort into trying to "separate" our "cultures" etc. When at the end of the day I think anyone who uses this logic is clearly blinded. Or fearful that at the end of the day despite color we are just humans. I guess it would make people question thier exist after that.Simple concept. Hard for the majority to grasp. Teach kids to not care what no one "thinks" about them all while judging. A kid should be with thier own race because?Rather a child is with thier own race or not. It doesn't stop racism it doesn't stop that humans can hate someone regardless. There is no shelter from that.Or how horrible that the person would have to "learn" something new and meet a "set" of new people outside thier comfort line.I dont think color matters especially when a child without a home is so much worse and more heartbreaking.
Sure... why not. As long as they aren't adopting a certain race of kid to get paid more? I don't know i think i might be wrong or i can't remember correctly. But my friend and other siblings are Native America, she doesn't have the best relationship with her mother (her mother kicked her out multiple times through out her life, even when she was pregnant so she had to live with me for a while) and she told me the only reason her mother adopted to her cause she got paid more cause they were Native. I don't know... i can't remember the exact story if that's what happens when you adopt kid. But anyway, i have nothing against it same way i don't have nothing against interracial dating. It would be weird cause I'm in a interracial relationship and if we have kid they will biracial. As long as the person truly loves that kid and protects, provides for them then I'm happy to see that child in a home.
No, how will the Africans learn to stop reproducing if we keep giving them vaccines, education, and adopting their children?We should just not intervene in africa anymore, or disallow the smart ones to immigrate to civilization. We have been stealing the smart ones, and thats why Africa is struggling. We need as many African Kings to remain in Africa as possible to rebuild her. We should have programs to send Black Americans there to help them build infrastructure too. They can open orphanages and teach about abstaining and monogamy.
Ha! Its the leaders in Africa that are African keeping the continent poor! GREED.. Africa is literally the most resourceful country there is.. rich in oil, minerals/ diamonds, land! Its their government that keeps them poor.. n it started when they started enslaving their own people n keeping their own people in a hierarchy. .. n they sold their own people to Europeans first before they got taken away. Current trade deals don't get made with Africa as much bc if we utilize all of their resources, they will become the richest continent... only problem is, the government there will not share wealth with their citizens.. again, greed.
This is how you really think? 😟
@Renee93 haha of course not! Its satire 😂Adopting kids is fine. But I think people should make their own first. 😊
Guaranteed way to fuck up the child. Exhibit A: there's these two white lesbians I know raising a black kid and a Guatemalan kid hooo boy are those two gonna be effed up! Its one thing to be adopted, interracial, but then these people usually have some ulterior motive is doing so like white guilt, or righting a wrong, or doing it for woke points, like Angelina Jolie... 100k foster kids in the US and you fly all the way to Zimbabwe somewhere to adopt little Ookbook?
It needs to be said: adopting a baby that's racially different from you is the best way to make that kid feel like a weirdo his/her whole life. It's like you're tattooing "I DON'T HAVE MY REAL PARENTS" across the kids' foreheads. Who even needs that shit? Give the kid a shot at some self esteem and and actual sense of identity.I know that this is probably going to get me some downvotes, but I'll just say it: Interracial adoption is preachy as hell, and it's only done by people who want to remind you what great people they are. You want to foster a kid from a different race? Great, go for it. As long as they stay fostered. As long you raise them as your own. As long as you show them what it means to have an identity, as well as the ability to interact with others.
Culture wise i say no. I've seen children be adopted by parents of different races. And in their attempt to raise them according to "their race" the children become confused and may have disciplinary problems. There are things such as hair, and skin care issues that also arise. As far as love goes, love is not based off of color. But some other things may be. So I don't disagree with interracial adoption but parents should be aware of the pros and cons. It's not some humanitarian thing you just do, because you've got the finical means to do it!!!
I think children should stay with their borth parents or birth family/relatives if possible and that the birth parents/relatives should receive the help they need to keep their children and no frel they have to give them up because they can’t afford them or whatnot. If it’s absolutely not possible for the kids to stay with their birth families then at least I think they should be placed with adoptive families within their own countries (talking about international adoption here). As a last resort I think international adoption should be considered, but again as a last resort, and then I think the race of the adoptive parents are irrelevant. If they sre good, stable people that are willing and capable to take the child as their own then that’s all good. Same when it comes to domestic adoption - race is irrelevant in my opinion.
I’m white and my parents are white, but they adopted my brother who is a different race than I am.Some people think it’s weird or wrong, but it’s really not. We get to learn about his culture and teach him to appreciate it while also teaching him that he’s apart of the family. I’ve never seen him as anything less than my brother.There’s so many orphaned kids out there, and I don’t think minuscule things like race or nationality should be a factor in adoption. A family doesn’t have to be one race.
I think interracial adoption is an awesome idea. It helps tear down these idiotic racist ideals that have been instilled for far too many generations. The only way to destroy racism and the like entirely is to diffuse it by teaching everyone that we are all just people, not colors, genders etc...
Why wouldn't you? Ya I only adopt half polish half irish babies. If they don't fit to that then no way. I suppose someone who is a member of a larger race may be able to be that picky but what about the cultures that are very low in population? Screw them I guess. Ya I don't believe any rational adult actually thinks that way.
I am in support of ANY child who gets adopted period. My heart aches for any baby or child who has to grow up with no family. Race is the last thing on my mind when it comes to giving a poor child a home and parents. As long as the parents are able to take care of the child and want the baby, then by all means. Babies and children just need love and good parenting. No need to make things more complicated in my opinion.
You're a democrat aren't you?
I am not from USA.
You should only adopt a different race child if you know how to raise it. For example I went through hell because my dad had no clue how to do a girls hair, so he used to gel it into a ponytail hence me being bullied..I couldn't imagine a guy having a little mixed/black girl with curls and him trying to gel it! the nightmare! Learn how to look after their hair type, skin type (which still differs!) and you're good.
I highly doubt you were bullied because you had a ponytail hun that sounds like a you thing.
@Ámayas_20 I was bullied because my dad didn't know how to teach me how to dress, and gelled my hair in a ponytail. So yes It was my dad, for many years I was very different and many girls asked where my mum was, to the point the school got me a therapist so she could teach me and take me out, she took me out of school to get my hair cut properly and to learn how to style it.So sorry It's not a "me" thing, as I'm not being bullied In college anymore, and wasn't for the last years of secondary.
Yeah no, that is a you thing. No one teaches you how to dress you learn that through others around you and you could have worn your hair down. Have fun with the victim complex though it clearly started young.
@Ámayas_20 It's not a victim complex, I did not follow fashion or have a mother to guide me. That's as simple as It Is, I never cared about girly things and such so why would I do what the other girls did? I didn't care about hierarchy like my friends did.If I were so wrong here, then my therapist would've asked these questions but instead agreed with me, all 3 have, and unlike In the US our therapists are free so she can say whatever the fuck lol.If you don't have a figure whether a sister or mother, someone of your own sex to tell you how to dress for your shape, your age and such then it's just a fail. I used to wear bum denim shorts because It was fashionable, but really I was way tooo young but my father had no clue how to approach it whatsoever, but when I moved to my mums things changed by miles! I started looking better, learnt how ot look after my skin and wear whats appropiate for me.Until I got to secondary school, I had no clue whatsoever that gelled hair was stupid and ugly, or looked bad. As my dad used to sugarcoat everything "You look good" etc, whereas most good parents will say "Katie, this style doesn't suit you.."
For example I have greasy skin, and need to use cleansers that strip the skin and then after put a light oil on it to give it back some of it's oils. At my dads I smothered on moisturiser and cheap ted baker sets my dad bought me as he thought thats what girls use, which just made my skin worse. There are some things a father simply cannot teach, some can and are great but my dad? He didn't even tell me to start wearing a bra! Or how to look after myself properly, he simply has no clue about raising girls and thats as simple as It Is, I'm not playing victim complex because If I were It would be In a situation you can get pity out of right? I can't get pity out of this, as my dads not In the wrong and neither am I, It's just an "oh well can't change the past" kind of thing, you don't need to be so defensive and upset.
It's absolutely a victim complex, I had no female figure growing up and because of that and because I wanted to know how to dress I made sure I looked at what other girls wore and what people complimented me on it's really easy you don't need taught. If you cared so much you should have done what other girls were doing like literally everyone else who cares. Also stop being so ignorant not everyone is from the US and the fact that our healthcare is free makes our therapists more likely to do what they think they should to please people instead of what's effective, they get paid anyway. You don't learn to wear a bra for fuck sake I mean no offence but how stupid were you? Skin care is meh walk into a superdrug and they'll tell you what to put on your face.
@Ámayas_20 You really would be a bad psychologist.. good you aren't going into anything to do with the mind, when I was young I was very oblivious and lacked a lot of common sense. It doesn't take a genius to decipher that one child Is different to another.
I think it’s best for children to be raised by parents of his/her own race. Especially children of color with white adoptive parents. We’ve got to admit that race matters in the U. S. People of color aren’t treated the same as white people. People of color have to prepare their children for the prejudice and challenges that they’re going to face in the world simply because their skin is brown. I just don’t think that white parents can completely prepare a child of color to go out into the world. It can be really confusing and difficult for bi-racial children to figure out where they fit in the world, so I think it would be even more confusing for a child of color raised by a white family. But at the end of the day, I would rather a child have parents of a different race than no parents at all.
I do, but there is a catch though. One of my close friends is a girl from uganda, adopted by a white family. While she has had a great life so far due them, she had a lot of identity crisis moment reagarding a different body type/hair/skin colour vs her white family, especially her white sister
I agree. It's very unfair to put black children into white families. The black kids will have daily reminders of their inferiority.
Well, I'm kinda torn about this topic. Of course, every child deserves a family, parents and a happy childhood. And sure, it would be amazing to have mixed families to slowly start showing that being black or white or whatever doesn't make you less of a person, but on the other hand people are still pretty prejudiced about things like that and the kids would probably be teased about having parents of different race. So all in all, I would support it, but not everyone is that supportive.
An abandoned child is an abandoned child. Period.Only time I start giving side eye is when white people in particular adopt black children (mainly girls) and don’t know how to do their hair.Like god damn. Do not destroy that poor girls head please. EDUCATE yourself before you even think about going that route.
There aren't enough non-white parents trying to adopt non-white babies to try and justify that kind of policy. Over 90% of adopted kids are adopted by white Christian parents. Nobody else is even in the market for orphans to adopt. Sad but true.
Can you cite that?
@Billy1002 NO, because that information is heavily censored for obvious reasons.
well no evidence, then its just a baseless claim that can be thrown away.
@Billy1002 Yeah, you can throw away the theory of gravity too, doesn't mean you can fly.Lots of things are true, but can't be proved. Lots of things can be proved, but aren't true. If you want to operate based on facts alone, you'll always have blindspots and you'll never be able to explain to yourself why, or how. You'll just have to smack into things that shouldn't exist all the time. I use science too, but science doesn't use me. I pick it up when it's useful and set it aside when it's not. It's just a tool. Like all tools, it's really good at what it's really good at, and not worth a shit for what it's not worth a shit for.
I believe adoption in general is awesome and wish more people did it. I plan to adopt if I ever get to a point where I can support a child. Interracial adoption can be tricky though especially if you live in a predominantly white community. You’d have to be prepared to deal with your child and their self identity being a little warped.
Yes, even that picture warms my heart. As long as the parents raise the child whilst also educating them about their race and they dont act ignorant towards it either i see nothing wrong with it. Love has no race preference, as long as there is love, compassion and nurture in that family thats all that matters. Why should anything stop a child going to a happy home and deprive them of a happy childhood and changing their life for the better just because of their race.
I don't support blacks adopting white children. Black parents will make that child hate themselves because most blacks are racist and hate white people. Also I believe white children brought up by blacks will have less morals and will more likely commit crime, join gangs, mistreat women etc.
Excellent answer I agree with everything you said.
Lol. That's racist
That's really racist.
@sheepdip I'm half black, therefore it's not racist. Nor can I be a racist.
Anyone can be racist. You simply have to have bias against a race, which you clearly displayed with this response.
@thekack absolutely right.As for you opinion owner, that lefty identity politics shit doesn't fly here.
@TheKack No no it's IMPOSSIBLE for non-whites to be racist, because racism is prejudice + power. Non-whites do not have power, therefore CANNOT be racist.
Yeah, there are no black millionaires, politicians or powerful people.
No. Whoever fed you that line of crap is an idiot. Biases and prejudices against a race, no matter the melanin content of your skin, makes you a racist. Stop being an idiot and perpetuating the closed-mindedness that is becoming too prevalent in society today. Racial divides are used by weak people to make crap points in arguments. Come back with facts, reality, and honesty.
@theknack good take
@TheKack Keep up the good work, it's a delight to troll you :p
Why is there issue?Is it better that that child stay in foster house or wherever they live before that?In my opinion, if person/s who able to adopt and able to replace their parent/s and look after them not only look to get money of government benefits (UK) or send them back at first problem.I have no issue with that.
Absolutely Not !!! I despise it due to my own personal experiences and reasons I’d rather not share. It really just pisses me off... tbh. at least they got a home ig... a home that can’t teach them shit about their culture or even do their damn hair.
I can't tell if you are black or white. and that's concerning.
@IdentetarianimSucks I can’t tell if you’re green or yellow...
I can see how that might be potentially damaging for the child, which is unfortunate. If people didn’t act like being adopted is the worst thing in the world it wouldn’t be a problem.*Gasp!* Oh god no!! I’m adopted!! So what? It’s worse to have parents that don’t love you.
If a child needs a home no matter what race , foster / adopted parentscan be of any race as long as their giving a child a supported home andseeing that the child is receiving proper Food, Drink , Clothing , Shoes andall the care it takes to raise a child, the child can be of any race and it shouldnot matter.
It’s going to present challenges when the kids get older which is sadly asinine. I know in my country most couples wanting to adopt are white and most available babies are black. If MLKs dream had come true adopting a kid from a different race would be no big deal. But liberals are so fixated on race identity that it becomes a bigger deal that it has to. They also rather kill all unborn unwanted children
Yeah, his dream didn't come true. That's the whole whole point of why they say that. Different people will face different challenges in life, and that includes challenges just for being male, or black, or Asian or whatever else. People who don't get the different challenges are often not in the best place to help arm their children for the future and what they'll likely face. It's part of why people also say about people needing their dads, not just mothers. Sometimes, if the mother doesn't get it, she might be able to teach the best life lessons for her son and help to prepare him for what he might face in future.
@Fanme a traditional nuclear family is the most ideal scenario to raise a child. A biological biological male father and female mother. Most kids are straight and cisgendered
Sure do. The worst thing a child can experience is growing up without someone to love them. Those i wanted feelings last a lifetime and shape the person they are to become. Now because some kids get placed into families that do not look like them also shows a lack of suitable candidates of the same race. Make the process smoother and even less expensive and more might begin to consider this option to parenthood. But a good parent can fill the void though not completely. Just takes work.
To me its doesn't matter about the race but about the child, all children need a father and a mother, the parents will have to be responsible enough to explain how the world is. But at least the child is given a life of love.
Ideally, place a child with similar race parents. It's well documented that the child can otherwise feel lost and isolated socially.However, a childs fundamental requirement is stable love and support from a specific adult (preferably two). And for that, any race will do.
Absolutely. If a child needs a home and a family that loves them, and there is someone out there who is able and willing to provide that, that's all that matters.
Interracial adoptions are fine. I have a relative and friend who have adopted interracially, and both worked out great. However, there are cultural differences and expectations that need to be considered as the child grows.
I believe the moment people would stop giving a fuck about the outside and start to care for what's inside, the world will become a better place.
I completely agree. We're all human at the end of the day.
Yup! Cool profile pic by the way.
Race doesn’t matter and shouldn’t. Good parents teach their children not to look at the color of ones skin but to look on the inside of the person. I’m adopted from China and my parents are white
Of course, I agree with it. It is funny when racist GaGers think race is important and when they think it is not."Race is totally unimportant in racial adoption but don't forget "Black" people commit more crime!"Haha!
No, I believe that interracial adoption should be illegal.
Because I believe that everyone should stick with their own race.
That makes no sense, don’t tell me that you don’t have black friends or Asian friends or friends of a different race. Not to mention, no one is fully one ethnicity, so I don’t see why “we should stick to our own race”
@Phanta why should they stick to their own "race". last I checked there are no genetically distinct subspecies of human running around.
@SentientBrick : Read Chapters XXXIII-XXXIV (33-34) on my website: www.thezap.net
@Phanta Can you not explain why you think the way you do?
@SentientBrick : I EXPLAIN IT IN MY CHAPTERS. Either read them or stop pestering me.
Read em and barely any decent arguments to think the way you do. And your parents were probably somewhat interracial creating you so um why the fuck are you protesting against it?
@Phanta I'm not going to buy your book dude.
@SentientBrick : IT'S FREE; IT'S A WEBSITE. Don't be lazy.
Yes, there's nothing wrong with it. As long as the child has a happy childhood and kind, supportive parents, that's the most important thing.
I'm not against it. It's a human adopting a human. Race shouldn't be a factor in adoption. If a person is capable of providing any child with a good life and is ready to take on the responsibility he/she should do it.
Not sure i agree with the international adoptions such as Angelina or Madonna. But domestically kids need families rather than being in the system. If it can be into their own culture then great, but if not its better than no one
I''d prefer that international adoptions go the other way. All excess black babies in America should be shipped off to Africa to be raised in their natural habitat.
I don't feel the desire to tell would be adopted parents which kids they should choose but let's be honest, it's extremely weird to see a little black boy with two white middle class people. It's just not right. It looks weird and suspicious.
I agree. It looks like they're taking their pet for a walk.
I’m all for it. The more children that can be inserted into a loving home... the better society will be in the long run.
I don't know why but I can hear your laugh, your voice, your breathing, all from this one pic of you.
My voice sounds nothing like you expect, probably the same for my breathing and my laugh!Definitely not a “husky guy stereotype” in this regards 😛
I’m pretty sure IK. Like your twang and everything. If u want, use speakpipe n let us hear.
Yes. Yes I do. A child all alone doesn't care what you look like, as long as you are willing to love them and give then a family.
Its fine but complicated. I’d preferably adopt a kid who was black or half black to avoid less questions
Of course I do. There’s a shortage of adoptive parents. Without interracial adoption, there would just be more kids without parents.
Don't see a reason to be against it. As long as the parent (s) are loving and able to provide for the child, why be against it?
It's a makeshift arraignment at best. In an ideal world there would be no other races around but your own. In a screwed up civ nat world you do the best you can to find a child a home. I would not do it personally.
Yeah I do.A kid is a kid. If I was going to adopt a kid, the thought of their race wouldn't even cross my mind.
I'll be honest I don't see the big deal. Personal opinion is ethnic background doesn't matter one iota. If you can provide a happy home for someone doesn't matter what ethnicity either are
Depends, if the adoptive parents would support their religion and culture sure.If the parents would want them to be like them then no they shouldn't.
What if it's a baby or young toddler, they don't have a culture or religion yet.
@Ámayas_20 Still, same thing applies.
Makes literally no sense.
I wouldn't do it, but do whatever you like. Doesn't matter much, unless you're one those idiots who think that some skin colors don't have the right to raise other skin colors. Which makes you an asshole.
If I don't get married I'll adopt any race child available. I prefer a baby so we can build memories
Interracial adoption sounds fun. I don't see why there would be a problem.
Check out the movie "Instant Family"
I've actually watched it. Great movie
Race does not matter as long as the child is raised with the right morals.
I don't care what other couples do. Good on them for giving a child a (hopefully) good home.
lmao look at how beta the guy in the pic looks... that should say it all. if you are raising some random black guys child, you are retarded
It doesn't matter if the parent is a different race because all children deserve to be loved.
