So I see a question posed in the RSS reader of my Gmail, the headline of a CNN story on transracial adoption.
This being such a complicated issue, fraught with nuance and complexity… I will answer it with short, pithy phrases:
Do Whites need training before parenting Black children?
In one word? YES.
In two words? Lord, yes.
In three words? Racism still thrives.
In four words? Color-blindness: wishful thinking
In five words? Love conquers most, not all.
