Should white adults adopt black kids?

Here’s some food for thought from the blog Racism Review on the movie Blind Side. This blog post brings together several topics I love mulling over: adoption, race relations and film theory.

Overall, something this blog does well is generate thoughtful conversation. It links here, to a statement by the National Association of Black Social Workers in 1972.

So what do you think? Should white adults adopt black kids?

  1. No. The Black Community is already struggling with enough identity issues. It is important that Black Youth have a strong connection with where they come from

  2. I’d have say that I disagree with the above commenter. If Black families are not stepping up to adopt Black children then we shouldn’t disapprove of non-Black families adopting them. I think it would be wrong to keep a kid un-adopted his whole life in order to protect his racial identity, especially when there are many White families who would like to adopt Black children.
