Of course I'm kidding about Oscar winning actress Sandra Bullock adopting Kimora's baby Kenzo. But she did adopt this adorable little boy from New Orleans earlier this year.

Sandra Bullock and her now estranged husband Jesse James brought little Louis Bardo Bullock home in January and kept him a secret from the world until People mag got the exclusive this month.

Everyone knows how difficult it is to adopt a white baby in the US -- and being a rich celebrity doesn't speed up the process any. Even though Sandra's adopted baby is black, it still took four years for the adoption paperwork to be finalized.

The adoption agency probably hadn't heard the rumors about Sandra's lying, cheating husband, Jesse James, being a Nazi-loving racist.

It kinda makes you wonder if Jesse and Sandra's marriage cracked under the strain of having a black baby in the house? Little Louis is already starting out in life at a disadvantage: he's being raised by a single mother with no black father figure around to show him how to be a real man.

And he's already wearing beads and costume jewelry.

    He is a beautiful baby. While I have no problem with international adoptions, it's great she adopted an American child. Im sure Sandra will do her best to give him a wonderful life. Sidenote to Sandra: While a two-parent family may be ideal, single parents are capable of raising amazing children who become amazing adults.

    He is truly adorable! I love Sandra Bullock! Congratulations girlie!

    But Sandra: "Little Louis is already starting out in life at a disadvantage: he’s being raised by a single mother with no black father figure around to show him how to be a real man."

    I'm sorry Sandra, but black father figures showing their son's how to be real men are 'real' far, few, and in between these days. Not to knock the few wonderful fathers and daddys we do have, but I can't say your statement to be accurate!

  • shannon04

    @mirsmommy and Redeemed777.......I was thinking the same thing. It does appear to be getting out of control and sometimes I do feel like the kids are "accessories" to these people.

  • Cinderella

    @Redeemed, I don't think White people "feel the need" to adopt Black children. I think they find it easier to adopt Black kids because there are so many around the world needing homes. Healthy White children are hard to adopt.

  • keekee83

    Anytime a child can find a good home...it is a good situation. Anytime a woman can adopt a child that she either could not produce on her own or just didn't have the time to produce on her own, it is a good situation. I am a black woman and I see no problem in Sandra B, a white woman, adopting a black baby. When brangelina and madonna were doing it and going over to Africa, the question was why can't they adopt over here. There are alot of black babies who need a good home, it doesn't matter whether it is a single parent house hold (where the single parent makes more than a normal 2-parent household), or if it is a 2 parent household where the family doesn't have much, but want to support and love the child.

I immediately thought of jesse when I saw that the baby was black because that porn star stripper chick he was messing with has friggin white power tattoed on her head and his father even said that jesse is obsessed with the nazi movement and all...*smh* she couldn't have that baby around that

  • Carmez79

    all these questions about white people adopting black children is so wrong. where are the questions asking why arent black people adopting black children? so would you rather have this child grow up in a foster home instead of being adopting by an able and willing person??? this kid will have all his needs taking care of and who is to say that she doesnt have any black friends to give her advice? it is about the childs well being not the race. and we can sit here and assume that their marriage fell bec the pressure of a black child in the house but i am sure that he knew about this before so i dont think thats it. he was a cheater and his skeletons fell out the closet when one woman wanted fame. he probably broke up with her after they adopted this baby and she couldnt handle it so she destroyed his marriage right along with him.

    My aunt adopted 2 white boys. They are so cute and bad as all hell, but I love them. Hopefully we can see more of this cause there are more white people adopting black children versus black people adopting white.

    However, as long as the kids are in a good home with loving parents don't matter the skin color to me.

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    So no bible totin scripture quotin today huh? I feel if Sandra really wanted attn she would have made it known before now but she didn't. I'm sure she knew it would have come out in the divorce proceedings anyway so she did it on her own terms. We get mad when "the white man" beat us and stole our kids and now because we see these celebrities adopting black babies it's a problem? We don't know what's in these people's hearts so until you do you shouldn't be so quick to judge.

We have all these dudes out here making babies and women letting them impregnate them w/o having a hm for these kids to grow up in so they get tossed into the system. Sandy seems like a cool woman and I'm sure this kid will get lots of love so if peeps have problems w/white celebs adopting blk babies..stop having them so they can't adopt them in the first place or bring one hm.

    there is nothing wrong with white people adopting black children...I just think there are plenty of black, happily married couples out there that can't conceive and would love to adopt this child.

    I don't see anything wrong with white people adopting black children or any other race children. There are more white people willing to adopt than blacks. I'm not saying blacks don't adopt but just there are more white people that do. More power to them for giving these children good homes b/c if not they would probably be in foster homes.

    @ms. truth & mirsmommy,

    Transracial adoption is actually not a new trend, there have been transracial adoptions (white people adopting black children) for years, the largest percentages probably happened in the late 60's when it finally became legal... however they still make the smallest percentage of transracial adoptions. One or three celebrities don't show me a trend, these just happen to be individual circumstances, like SandraRose already said, its hard to find healthy white babies to adopt.

    I have no problem with children finding permanent homes whether its across racial or cultural lines.

    Why do you need co-signing on what you believe @redeemed777?
    I'm not coming at you but why do you need others opinions on what you believe? Does it matter that she is white and that child is black? Being with a black family shouldn't have anything to do with it. Being with a family that loves them and wants the best for them is what matters. Please stop making race such an issue. I haven't seen any other black celebs adopting black children. And I don't understand the accessory thing. Madonna, Brad and Angelina, and now Sandra. That doesn't sound like a trend to me.

    Hey Truth! I don't see why black people are so upset about white's adopting black children. I don't think White people say "Oooh she got a black baby, Im gonna get me one too". These are kids who need a home and its a permanent decision. So if your heart is in the right place I don't care what color you are. A good loving parent doesn't come in one race.

    On the Wednesday, March 3, World News on ABC, inspired by current efforts to adopt orphans in Haiti, correspondent Ron Claiborne filed a report promoting the view that black children may be harmed psychologically from being adopted and raised by white parents. Claiborne focused on the case of black filmmaker Phil Bertelsen who complains that "he and other black adoptees tell a similar tale, of feeling estranged, cut off from their own racial identity and culture."

    On the March 3, World News, after recounting that black social workers used to "condemn" interracial adoptions as "cultural genocide," Claiborne passed on that, although that view has softened up, there are still those with concerns:

    GLORIA BATISTE ROBERTS, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK SOCIAL WORKERS: Children deserve the right to be with people who look like them, who can understand what they are going through, understand their culture.

    CLAIBORNE: At the Spence Chapin Adoption Agency, counselors urge white parents adopting a black child to integrate their lives, even if it means moving to a racially diverse neighborhood.

    RITA TADDONIO, SPENCE-CHAPIN ARC: If you look around your table and your guests are all of the same color, then you shouldn't be adopting a child of a different color.

And I think what redeemed is trying to say is that something else is probably behind this...who knows what it is :shrug: I just find it funny that all of a sudden, a lot of white celebs are trying to adopt black children...If they're doing it because they're really trying to help a child in need, then more power to them. May God bless their efforts. I just hope they're not doing it because it's the new trend in hollywood, such as these "marriages" and pregnancies.

    The responsibility of children is overwhelming. I can't see that someone is doing it as a trend. Black kids dominate the foster system. If you do a little research they just changed where they were pushing for black parents to adopt black children. It just doesn't happen that way because there are so many children out there to be adopted and need good homes.
    How can anyone know what her intentions were. We don't know what Jesse James said to that woman.

Like someone else said for everyone complaining did you fill out any paperwork to adopt a child. The process is long while some of you are questioning why it took 4 years.

    Also white babies are sold on the black market a lot. My mom was 15 when she had me and said a woman she saw in a store ask to buy me and she told them "hell no". Then my mom's brother took me when I was 2 and was going to sell me on the black market to a family b/c he didn't want any blacks in his family (i'm biracial. Luckily I was a bad ass and got a q-tip and perforated my ear drum so he had to take me to the emergency room, so my mom and dad got me back. Needless to say, I ultimately lived with my dad for the rest of my life, which we always got the side eye b/c he was a young black man with a daughter who gets mistaken for all white all the time (I am very light)..(but everyone says it's something about my hair that lets them know I'm not all white)...

    Sandra was inspired to adopt from New Orleans after participating in Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. She felt like there was so much need to give children homes that she opened her home and her heart. Sandra has spoken often about how there are different ways to mother. The public thought SB was talking about her step children - but clearly she was thinking about this child that would enter her world. When she left Jesse, SB said I need enough clothes for me and my baby! Her baby has been with her this entire time. God brought her a blessing right on time!

  • whatdoesitmatter

    I am soooo annoyed by you people hating on her because the baby is black. It's not like we're breaking our necks to adopt our own. Most of the time you complain about the ones you have, there's no way you're gonna get another one. Shut up and be happy that another one of ours wont have to grow up in the system. Idiots.

    BTW, Sandra you are hilarious!!!! "And he’s already wearing beads and costume jewelry."

    @BROWNSUGA...

    I would like to see the children adopted, but I think in the long run it is better for them to be adopted by one who looks like them.

    Celebrities influence the public.
    Celebrities are controlled by the higher Elites who HATE BLACK PEOPLE.
    Celebrities like Tom Cruise, Madonna, Jolies, and now Bullock are UNAWARE that they are being used for the greater agenda: Cultural Genocide.

    I am refering to the Blacks who do participate in adoption.

    Statistically Blacks, when we do adopt, only adopt children from family memebers who can not care for them. I was not making any reference to ones that end up in the system (as if ours are the only one)but why Blacks tend not to adopt other people's children as readily as Whites.

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    @Redeemed777 I'm glad you said "I think" good thing your opinions doesn't mean its true. Studies have shown that children of transracial adoption do not fare worse than their intraracial adoptee counterparts in terms of anything.

    If you're talking about cultural genocide, please SATDOWN AND EAT A COOKIE.

    This baby is blessed beyond words. And I love it that white celebs are adopting black kids. It will hopefully inspire non-celebs whites to adopt black kids, which in turn will get (black) kids who are often stuck in foster care into loving homes. I'll bet you my last dollar that if you asked a black person who graduated from the foster system how they would have felt if a white couple had adopted them, they would answer "blessed".

    First of all...I want to say I <3 KaraZ. No homo...but u always say whatever is on ur mind so intelligently but not caring who agrees with you or not. I love it.

    Anyway, I'm so shocked at these comments about white people adopting black children. For example, same thing with Heather with her blog the other day. These are children who either have no parents or if they stayed with their parents would live a life of extreme poverty. In the case of Sandra's baby, would u rather him be in some New Orleans foster home, being abused, going from home to home and ultimately end up being nothing because he has no stable home life. She could be a Martian for all I care. For people to go through the time consuming and extremely expensive process of adoption, sure seems like a lot of effort for a "fad". I think adoption in itself is a beautiful thing because I know the alternative is far less desirable. And God bless anyone, I couldn't care less if they are white, black or purple, who extends themselves to adoption.

  • Redeemed777

    @KARAZ

    You gotta look beyond what the eye sees right now. The eyes see a black baby that will have opportunity when he grows up.

    Look beyond that to the bigger picture.

    The bigger picture is that blacks in America ( maybe 20-40yrs from now )will totally forget about their culture ( Marcus Garvey and Harriet Tubman )and they will be stuck on Christopher Columbus and George Washington

  • LuvMySailor

    intensemocha

    I understand what you are saying, but being that America was a individualist vs holistic culture, no one cares of anyone in this country anymore. Families in general are breaking down across this place, not just black America. It just hits us first and hardest because of our small number compared to Whites.

    Black and now Latino males are the hardiest to find homes for in this country and the first to be discarded? Why? Because their mothers were probably poor, uneducated and rear in a low-income areas where the schools are horried compared to the suburbs and jobs are few ON PURPOSE because classism and class division is stark here in America and you need them poor to exploit them.

    I'm just saying look at the entire picture when it comes to those in the system. There is a reason why so many are discarded, the main one being that they are probably from a poor family.

    PS-Blacks also tend to stay within family because it is easier to deal with. You know the child's history already and the enviroment they were in.

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    @Redeemed777, please miss me with all of that. If black history in America is gone and forgotten, it won't be because of transracial adoption. If black people forget their culture in the next 20 - 40 years, it will be because of black people not passing on their stories to the ext generation, not because of the less than 5000 black children adopted annually by white parents.

  • LLani

    How many black people you know are adopting kids? I think black people for the most part are self centered. We can complain all day about whats happening in the world with our people but, don't do anything about it. We have become a lazy complaining race of people when it comes down to it. If more black couples or people step up to the plate and adopt children in the foster care system, you won't be up here complaining how white folks are adopting black children.

    Would you rather them in foster homes and become a statistic? It just baffles me how we as a people are always complaining about something, but at the same time we don't do our share to HELP the situation.

  • The Divine Ms. K

    If everyone complaning about white celebs has stepped up and adopted a black child, great. If not, be grateful that some unwanted child - black, white, green or otherwise - has found a loving parent.

    As for him wearing the beads - please relax. Should she have him in some baby Coogi or some other ghetto-fantastic ish I see little kids in nowadays.

    And that man was cheating on her for quite a bit of time. A baby, black or not, did not cause the marriage to end.

    Damn Sandra - you can see negativity in the sun rising. :rolleyes:

  • Candi Apple

    The first thing black people say is the little black baby will be disconnected from his culture. What culture? We have no culture to be honest. By culture do they mean the drug users and dealers, the hoes and the gold diggers, why black women can't find a good black man, because really these topics are always on the forefront. Black people who are semi-successful and successful try to distance themselves from this because they know its not a culture its a predicament.

    OR

    Are they talking about the talent singer, dancer and athletes. Those are talents not culture.

    They are the only black person at the dinner table. So that means they never come in contact with another black person to know one never exist. And are they saying the people at the dinner table hate them? Most white adopted parents teach their black children more than the average black parent who sends their children infront of a t.v as opposed to reading a book.

    If Sandra B is going to help this child develop into the best person he will be I don't see a problem with her being his mother. If he wants to be a doctor I'm sure she will support it. If he wants to be a politician I am sure she will say no :). Live, Love and be happy

If it bothers you that much then go adopt a few black orphans yourself

  • PAHairston

    Good morning all, what a pretty chocolate baby! Children deserve good homes and if white people can provide them, more power to them BUT Jesse James is a known racist. How can this home be a good environment for such a chocolate baby with a racist father? What was she thinking? Now, if this baby looked liked Halle's or Jessica Alba's baby, it would perhaps make a difference. That said, children deserve good homes, it should be the law of the land before women have a church full of children. And I ain't preaching, just stating my opinion. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    Those were events not culture. They fought for freedom but be damn if black people didn't take that freedom and turn it into something not even I as a black person want to be associated with.

    History when Hitler and his Nazi movement started he wanted all Jews out of his country. When the Jews resisted he then turned around and said he wanted their black slaves out of his country. He had no real problem with black people because they were not a threat to his movement to get rid of the Jews who turned his country into their own playground was his movement. Hitler sent one of his soldiers to the store during passover and everything was closed. He then started testing his theory and each and everytime he recieved a story back about why school was closed and why the stores closed earlier. He started his Nazi movement. None the less today most races hate black people and have a movement against them. 1) we don't stick together and beat eachother down before any other race has the chance 2) uneducated 3) not willing to extend a helping hand to another black, child or adult 3) Hate, Hate , Hate...

I said to myself.... Sandra is married to this man so she knew his azz was a closet racist, so what does that say about her? It has you questioning each of their character. But now, it seems that JESSE was leading a double life with deep disturbing character flaws and adopting this child could have released his hidden prejudices. Sandra gets a pass for now, because accessory or not, that beautiful baby needed a home and she stepped up to give him one.

  • pinksghetti

    He is very, very cute! Not sure why the timing of her being on the cover of People came after all that was revealed about Jesse including being a Nazi lover. Most people find it hard to believe that Sandra knew nothing about his beliefs after all these years. Anyway that sweet baby will at least be taken care of far better than if he would have never been adopted and Sandra definitely can provide for him financially.

    I love Sandra Bullock and I think should would be a great mother to any kid regardless of race. Bottom line is black kids are difficult to adopt and if a white family will love them as their own then I see nothing wrong with it.

    Good luck to Sandra and her new baby.

  • KrayZKat

    @Redeemed - I get it! I understand exactly where you are coming from. I'm happy for all children, regardless of the color, who can enter into a wonderful, loving home; however, I understand your concerns. I've come to realize that many black people can't see beyond the surface of a situation. We react on emotions, especially when it comes to criticism of whites, yet said people spew racist comments against their own and don't bat an eye. Meaning, throwing out stats that have no facts behind them. In other words, when others are racist against US, there's silence in the house. It's mental and psychological. You can't expect people who probably haven't delved into the historical understanding of our people to get what you are saying.

    Moving on...As far as a child being raised in a single parent household, there are many people, like myself and siblings, raised in a single parent household, and we are doing great; however, let's look at the majority of our children. They are living below the poverty level with NO FATHER IN SIGHT. Why are so many of us in such denial about this? There are exceptions to the rules, but let's look at reality. Many of our children are not fairing well. Why don't we get angry over that instead of someone's opinion on transracial adoption?

    Has anyone ever wondered by many blacks don't or CAN'T adopt children? Could it be that when they try, they get rejected? Could it be that it's is very expensive, and many who would love to adopt, can't? What about the blacks who take in children for foster care. A lifelong friend of ours has been doing that for years, and adopted two of the children in her care. What about THOSE black people?

    I'm sure there are a lot of blacks who would love to adoption children, but simply can't afford it or for some reason get turned down.

    @starr, I asked a question about why many blacks do not adopt. I am not convinced that black people do not want to adopt children. I'd love to adopt children, but I can't afford it. I'm sure there are many like me as well.

  • http://www.twitter.com/karazinatl KaraZ

    In my experience with transracial adoptees, I find that they know more about black history and real culture than many black children in black households. I had 3 transracially adopted black kids in my HS graduating class, their white parents made sure they were exposed to their roots/history/culture, they could probably give you a tour of the freedom trail blindfolded and walking backwards in 6 feet of snow. I think this is somewhat the norm for children in this adoption background, where their non-black parents overcompensate for not having a racially homogenous home.

    There are so many assumptions going on here, so I decided to do some research. Here's what I found from an adoption agency online:

    Census studies indicate that blacks adopt at about the same rate as whites, but to successfully place all the black children available for adoption, experts estimate blacks would need to adopt children at three times the rate of white families.

    A cultural/racial bias against adoption is blamed as one reason why black birthmothers often choose not to place babies for adoption and other blacks choose not to adopt, but the reasons are much more complex than this. For example, some blacks have alleged that adoption agencies are dominated by whites who unreasonably impose the same criteria on black families as they do on white prospective parents.

    Some states pay the adoptive parents for the welfare of the child. It's cheaper for a child to be adopted and pay the(adopted) parents than to keep him in foster care. Many blacks don't adopt because they are too busy taking in a family members kid(s).

    I understand about costs cuz not everyone has it like that. There must be some kind of financial assist with some agencies. I know a guy and his wife who adopted two toddlers, and i don't even consider them middle class. Idk

    I think blacks usually take care of their extended family, perhaps thats why some don't think about it. But there are many blk families that have the ability and for some reason just don't.

    He's such a cute baby.

    Wow, the comments in here are crazy. I can definitely tell mofos get all their info from the media. SMDH. Blacks do adopt children, it's just not televised. There are more little cauc kids in the foster care system, however that's not televised. Why do idiots think that blacks don't take care of their own? Because the MEDIA said so. When did it become taboo to do your own research and think for yourselves?? I mean DAMN!!

    There are an overwhelming amount of caucs getting black babies because they use them in all kinds of rituals. They've been snatching kids from the U.S., Africa and Haiti and other countries for DECADES!!! There is a black market for black children. If they don't use them for rituals, they kill them for their organs or their pineal glands. People are too busy focusing on kindergarten shyt to realize what time it is. Like I said in a previous post, we're in the 2012 cycle and if you're not original, you're not making it thru the shift over these next few years. These people are trying to use these babies as their tickets in. Too bad it won't work.

    But the difference between blacks and Nazis is that blacks are by nature loving ( they are God’s people and God is Love ) while the Nazis felt the need to take out the whole world. All blacks need to do is STICK TOGETHER, PROCREATE TOGETHER, AND ADOPT THEIR OWN.

    Thanks for the info. Not sure why blacks are being turned away. I'm gonna have to investigate.
    I worked with a white women, she and her husband could not have their own children so they adopted a black family(4 kids). Those kids are so well behaved/adjusted and could not have wanted for anything. They went to dance class/sports/played instruments. I didn't know she adopted kids until I stumbled across her and her husbands story on my local PBS channel. I am going to sterotype and say that she and her husband did not look like the type to adopt black kids. :lol:

  • ohpretty1

    I'd rather any child be in a foster home or adopted (minus abuse) versus being in a children's home/in the system. I always felt if I were to adopt children, I'd want a multiracial family. When my family moved to the suburbs, my classmates came from every walk of life. The ability to grow up with people of different races, religions, and cultures was one of the best things in my life. I learned a long time ago that we are more alike than different.

  • SangriaSugar

    @ Flo

    Nope military...I get the same amount no matter what hours they demand I work. Shoot even the civilians we have working these crazy hours ain't seeing that money they just give them comp time...we got a man who is up to like 60 hours!!

  • OutsidetheBox

    "The ability to grow up with people of different races, religions, and cultures was one of the best things in my life. I learned a long time ago that we are more alike than different."

    I agree with this such much. Until I moved to Atlanta all my experiences were multi-cultural ones...when I moved to the A, it was like Culture Shock. But I adapted fairly quickly, I believe, because I knew how to relate to all kinds of people. Now imagine going from Atlanta to Gainesville..

  • KrayZKat

    @Anna, you're welcome. I'm not against transracial adoption as long as it's for the right reasons (that's for any adoption). I just hope they have the best advantages, not just financially and materially, but spiritually and socially as well. It's great that the family you were talking about have well adjusted children. It's a blessing they were exposed to so many activies, which makes for well-rounded children.

  • Ms.Everything

    :cosign: with Llani, Anna, Gypsy, I'M, iscream and everybody else with some damn common sense

    @Redeemed, this is out of character for me but after spending the last 15 minutes reading your comments please stfu!! Seriously, you can't really believe that nonsense you're spouting. I hope you're just trying to start some drama and don't really think that crap is truth but if you feel so strongly about it go adopt a few babies who are black. Buy a big home and adopt all that you can so there won't be any left for YT to adopt and then you won't have this problem anymore.

    There are so many other important issues facing the black community right now that I can't believe this is what you want to fight against. Black people are killing each other. Our biggest problem is self-genocide and mutilation. The drug dealers selling drugs in the community are the one of the main reasons why we have so many children in the system. Next is the gang warfare going on in most of our impoverished communites. That couple with drugs is the reason why a huge number of our men find themselves in the prison system before they reach the age of 25 and why there are so many fatherless children. And then if you add on the high rates of HIV and AIDS infection in our teenagers and young people its no wonder why so many of our children end up in foster care and for most blacks adoption of non family members is the ultimate last resort because too often the cost is out of reach, the inconvenience is too much, plus many black families don't meet the ideals of most adoption agencies. If you want something to fight about, then go fight against the music industry whose artists are promoting the promiscuity, violence and drugs that are killing our people and creating orphans. The fashion industry for promoting attire in the black community that not only costs more than a months rent (but people just have to have it and will do anything for it) that looks like hooker wear and has our young girls looking like they're bout to hit the track after school. Fight against the judicial system that is all for punishing those who can't afford to buy themselves a lesser system but does nothing towards training and reentry into the real world. Fight against the government cuts to education and social services creating more ignorant young people each day and not providing help to those in need of temporary assistance leading to more poverty and desperate situations which causes the crime rate to rise. Don't fight against a black child receiving a happy welcoming home just because that home has a white mother.

    And yes I just typed another essay (for those who complain about my essays) because the ignorance in these comments would not allow me to keep my mouth shut

  • Candi Apple

    See thats the whole point. Does the color really matter if the children are in a well balanced home. No one is bashing black people for the room to fall silent. I being black just want black people to do better. History is there for the taking but to many people fall back on history to claim for their short comings.

    The world is big and has many problem and census can't catch them all so some things dont have statistical data. But believe me when my mother died my sister took her two grandchildren she was raising. She had no time to adopt. When my uncle died with his wife in a car accident. Their children were split between my aunts and uncles one with my mother we were raised like sisters. My cousin is in rehab for 18 months I have her 2 children (on the week days for schooling purposes). These senerios are not mathimatically equated in the stats (if so let me know the numbers to ignorant to google). We have no time to adopt outside of the family structure right now. But my nephews has a girlfriend he has been with for 4 years she died leaving behind 3 children. He has the children and we all chip in and pay for private school and clothing. We as the family right now don't have the time to adopt outside because our plates are full. Stats don't have the answer for everything. Not saying that your wrong but not completely informed the same thing can be said for history. Historically black people developed reading and writing - that does not make the majority of us pick up a book. Black people developed the mathimatical equations that doesn't make us scientist. Really come on with the history and stats sometimes they don't give the full picture. Stats just tackle one subject. But, I do agree many black people try to adopt but don't fit a certain criteria should they re-evaluate the criteria's yes. just like standerdized testing or the IQ testing system.

    How does this all fit into Sandra adopting a black baby and giving him a happy home

    OOhh and when I lived in an apartment building my next door neighbor sister died and she took all 7 of her kids. No stats on that either

    Oh and one last thing @Redeemed, you are a big part of the reason that those of us who are Christian on here are considered bible thumping hypocrites. You really need to get your bible and do some self evaluation

    Back on topic: my family was big on me knowing my history. I went to an all white/arabic elementary school but my mother, uncles and grandparents taught me everything that the history books left out and I do the same with my kids. As I've gotten older and especially since moving to CA I noticed many black families did not do the same. There are so many people especially in the younger generation who the only thing they know of black history is that we were slaves and the white man held us down. I was taught our history but not that whites were the enemy but there are a huge number of black people, especially the young ones, who know the bare minimum of our history but were taught that whites are the enemy which makes me mad because how are you expected to live in this country, grow and succeed thinking that everyone who doesn't look like you is against you? By not teaching black history to our youth a generation of blacks are growing up lost and angry. Its like the saying goes how do you know where you're going if you don't know where you came from?

  • KrayZKat

    Black people are the most resilient people on the planet. All is not bad, but that's what we focus on. We are survivors. In spite of all we've been though, we are still here making more strides than ever. We wouldn't know that because that's not what we see. BET and TV One have failed to show the good life many of us live. The blacks who are adopting kids. Look at all those brother from that academy in Chi town who graduated and are going to college. Blacks now are more wealthy than ever, yet we always want to focus on what we aren't doing. We are our worst enemies. We get all dramatic over someone else's opinion about transracial adoption, tear each other down in droves, yet no one say anything about that. Self-hatred in the black community is one of our biggest problems. There was a time before integration when we looked out for one another. Integration was good in some ways, but flucked us up in others. We are disinfranchised as we've lost our country (home country), language and culture and have been...anyway, why bother.

  • KrayZKat

    Ms.Everything - In my opinion, there is/was a system set up. It's called white supremacy. All I can tell you is this: listen to a white man by the name of Tim Wise. He breaks it down completely (this is a white man who knows how they, as a system, operate). No, not all whites are bad, but not all blacks are either. We (black people) tend to blame other blacks for everything wrong. This is a sytem set up, Ms.Everything. Tim is on *tube. He's amazing and people all over the world are getting educated.

    The anger generated over this is not surprising to me. If only we could take this energy and place it where it belongs. When there's a racist post about blacks, we dismiss it and say, "black people are way too sensitive," yet when their honor is question, we pick up our weapons and WWIII begins. Why is that?

    Candi Apple, I beg to differ. That's the word everyone wants to ignore because it addressed some deep rooted issues that so many of us don't want to face.

    It's not just the children who are killed for the glands, but adults too. A lot of people go missing every year whose story never makes it to the press. Some people think that by eating the pineal gland, it will make them like us. Hell some of them eat them because it gives them a high that no other drug on the planet can give. And they use the glands for the melanin, which does far more than just make our skin dark. Billions are spent every year on melanin research. They've even got melatonin pills in every drug store/Walmart. Where do you think they get the melanin/melatonin from?

  • Candi Apple

    How many postive post do you see on the internet? Alot in fact this post was positive until people started stating that this white woman adopted this black baby. SR is not the only site and I have seen many positive post. the post only turns ugly when someone throws out a racist comment or a comment about a couple (Tiny and TI) wedding date. Its the people not the post. Some people focus more on some subjects than other because its their passion or subject of concern. Day and night, light and dark, up and down. Everything has two sides and one cant shut the other down. The problem is right now society likes the dirty more than the clean and thats for all race's not black alone. What are the deep rooted issues poverty, under-educated, child abuse, white people holding black people down, black people using that as an excuse, slavery. I mean yes we were once told not to read but now we can read how many do read? can't blame the world for all the woes. And can't say that everyone self hates because another race is better. Black men marry white women because of self hate. Its not just one issue there are many issues and how do you get to the bottom of any issue its talking about it and yes mostly talking about the bad and not sweeping it under the rug. How would my hubby know I hate apples unless I told him. I say talk about it.... Talk about all of it. The good, bad and they ugly. Talking only about the good will cause everyone to overlook the bad.
    Everyone uses self hate even when it comes to men being gay. Its a trend word.

  • msblackitalian

    @crzasallgetout

    Thamk you very much!

  • Ms.Everything

    @Krazy I get what you're saying and as soon as I can get to a computer ill look him up. I agree that self hatred is a huge problem in the black community and a lot of that hatred stems from the days when we were slaves. There were so many tools used to enslave us mentally and physically and many of us are still holding to those same things and wondering why we can't get ahead. Me personally, my anger is focused on the entertainment industry right now. I read on another site about TI giving a speech at a school and a parent emailed the principal upset because the parents weren't informed that he would be speaking to the students. The principal went on a rant about George Bush snorting coke and being an alcoholic in his younger days and the comments mainly focused on how racist (although I'm not sure and it was never stated that the parent was white) and ignorant the parent was without looking at the bigger picture which is TI has been convicted of multiple felonies, his music promotes negativity in the community, he was just released a few weeks ago and he is not the best spokesperson for anti bullying to children. The parent suggested next time having him do work around campus as a show of consequences which I actually agree with. Have him paint classrooms or something but don't stand him on a stage as a role model. I sent Sandra an email but i doubt she'll post it but it made me really look at these artists. People are so starstruck that they can't see the person behind the celebrity. If TI hadn't been discovered he'd be another statistic getting dragged by us in the comments once his crimes made the news. Clifford Harris is a man who committed a felony while on probation from another felony, has at least 3 kids by 3 different women who he's never married, has a violent past, dealt drugs in the black community and is likely abusive to his current fiance but because he's a popular rapper who does a few charitable deeds its excused, he's redeemed, a role model and anyone saying otherwise is a hater, racist (if they're non black), or crabs in a barrel. Same thing with Jay Z. Or Lil Wayne. He's a public drug addict, has 4 kids by 4 women, 3 born in the last year, rapping about sex with any and everybody with catchy hooks and beats to appeal to kids, had his daughter on stage while he rapped about doing every girl in the world and just gave the most ignorant, disrespectful interview I've ever read but he's lil wayne so its okay but if he was just Dwayne Carter he'd be another trifling statistic. And I could go on especially with the reality shows but once I sat down and really looked at these stars I got so angry because these are the ones who are painting the picture of Black America to the masses. They were handpicked by the music execs to be exactly what they are, ignorant, mostly uneducated, ghetto clowns preaching crime, violence, drugs and sex and then we wonder why we continue to be stereotyped, why there are so many exposes on the networks about the problems in black america... sometimes I wish I had my own blog so I could really say what I'm thinking and I really hope Sandra got my email and posts it so I could see what others are thinking. But seriously, we are our worst enemy, we've been setup by White folks to fail and they're using our own to bring us down and so many are just feeding right into it.

    So many opinions but not one solution. I never praised TI I used it as an example people focused on him and tiny not being married when he has bigger issues with him. Why sweep that under the rug. Talk about it

  • KrayZKat

    Candi Apple - Whew. You know, I'll just suggest you listen to Tim Wise. The man breaks down exactly what I am talking about. When one has a country in which every university, business, government, etc. and the people in power do not look like you, we have a problem. I'm talking about power. Racism is about power. Why black people are quick to call other blacks racist is beyond me. Every race, except us, on the planet has a homeland, culture, and language, thus you see much more unity amongst those groups of people. Slavery plays a major part is our disinfranchisement today. It was set up that way by those who do not want to lose the power they've controlled for hundreds of years. I'm not saying that we sit back and relish in it, but use it to our advantage, but if we don't acknowledge racism/power/supremacy, we won't flourish like we should. We have more power than we can imagine. To me, it's more than "this white woman adopting a black child" thing. Anyway, I hope you can hear Tim lecture. I think you'll see more of what I'm talking about.

  • KrayZKat

    Ms.Everything - please look him up. He's gives a wealth of information and educating everyone on this very sensitive topic and they are listening. There's an advantage to being in power. Those tools you mentioned have had historical impact. Have you read the book, "The Miseducation of the Negro?" If not, it's excellent. It was written in the 30's but it reflects what is going on now.

    I know the website you are referring to about TI. I read it the other day as well. As far as he is concerned, a lot of people said that because he has paid his debt to society, he should be excused. I don't know much about him except for what I've read on SR, but I do agree about celebrity worship. We look to them, instead of parents, to teach our children. They are supposedly, "role models" when I don't believe they should be. A parent, teacher, sibling, the neighbor next door that a child can see and touch would be ideal, but I know that's now how it goes. Even adults worship celebs to the point that we oftentime overlook their indiscretions (and I know we all have them).

    If you want your own blog, please start one. I love having intelligent, thought-provoking conversation, that are oftentime controversial. Go for it! Great comments!

    You are so right. The music execs are behind this nonsense. I didn't used to be that way either.

  • Ms.Everything

    Candi I know you didn't. My reference to TI was based off an article I read the other day about him, it had nothing to do with your comment at all.

    Krazy, I get what you're saying except for the part about Blacks being unable to be racist because were the only race without a homeland, culture and language. Racism is hatred of another race of people solely because of their difference in color, culture, language etc usually because of stereotypes and ignorance. I know many Blacks who hate not only whites but asians, mexicans, indians and other races just because they are different than us. Blacks definitely have the capability of being racist but too many try to justify it by saying the other races hate blacks too, and excuses like were black so we can't be racist.

  • KrayZKat

    Ms.Everything - I think there are many prejudiced blacks, but not racist. In my opinion, racism is about power/supremacy.

    Racism: the prejudice that members of one race are intrinsically superior to members of other races

    Any attitude, action or institutional structure which systematically treats an individual or group of individuals differently because of their race. The most common form of racism in North America is in the form discrimination against African-Americans.

    An ideology based on the idea that humans can be separated into distinct racial groups and that these groups can be ranked on a hierarchy of intelligence, ability, morality etc.

  • Candi Apple

    Awww KrayZKat thats the whole thing I already do agree. Did you not read my post and see that. Umm who knew. I went to many extremes the only thing you focused on was that I did not totally agree with yours alone. There are many layers to one cake its not cut and dry. Its like the allegory of the cave. Just because I or someone else understands does not mean that others do. I do know the bigger picture you speak of but as with everything I do know its not the only picture. Children are taught on different levels. Lets take the "this is hot" stage. Little timmy the stove is hot don't touch ok mom. Now let take little tommy- Tommy the stove is hot- ok mom - Tommy sneaks and touches the stove to discover its hot = burnt hand. Some people need to see it, touch it, feel it, to believe it. So some people need to talk about it and not let it get swept under the rug to believe it. Some people don't need the burnt hand to know its hot. Yes, the world would be a simpler place if everyone could just focus on the bigger picture. So I get you. But, In the interm who was gonna "allow" black couples to adopt this child if Sandra B. didn't. The only thing we can do is now open our eyes and allow her to be the best mother she can be to this boy and not slander her because in the long run he will know her as his mother. Are we worse than the "captians" who you speak of. This boy will only encounter confusion if people keep focusing on his mother is white. Did I not speak of slavery but I also spoke on the flip side of black people holding on to it as a crutch too. Isn't it time for us to move on and write new books. My parents wrote a new book for me to teach my children, My children will write a better book than mine, and their children will write a better book than theirs. But, in the same light my neighbor book maybe the totally different because they are afraid to write a new one. So I talk about it to them everyday until they understand they write their own pages. Maybe I don't say things the way you like but I'm the mad scientist with so many different thought patterns. The reality is right now what you are talking about is to big for everyone to grasp and small steps need to be taken to accomplish a bigger goal. Just like the small steps we are taking away from slavery. because not everyone has a slave mantality. Yes, it might be problematic for this child when he grows up and the agenda maybe to seperate him from his heritage and yadda yadda yadda, but right now this is what he has and I will not take that away from him. Sandra B. goal is one thing but his goal is another. You might not get me but know that I get you.

  • Ms.Everything

    @Krazy, I may but I don't even know how to get one started right now but I really would love to have a forum for discussing important issues like these. I mean I love gossip as much as anyone, love SR but sometimes I need substance.

    I didn't know much about TI until I saw ATL but several years ago, right after 50 and Kim did Magic Stick I swore off all rap music cause I couldn't take the raunchiness anymore (I was newly saved) and for about 3 years I listened to gospel and old school jams til I gradually started listening to more current stuff but I am still rather picky but lately I've been looking at the lives of these rappers and it bothers me so much that they get praised for being thugs, criminals, drug dealers and whores. It didn't used to be that way even when gangsta rap first started they were telling true stories about life in the hood and once people started dying, they came out the hood quick and started speaking out about the violence. And in the real old days if the public found out your personal life was messed up your career was over so the execs covered up most of the nonsense. That article followed by the one on lil wayne (same site so if you haven't read it go read it and the comments) really pissed me off because of the comments for one and for two these rappers can do whatever they want but as long as they do a couple giveaways, speeches and look good they're designated saints in the hood and media. And its mainly kids who are feeding into this. The generation under me from like 16 years to maybe 23 are almost all lost, they have dead looks in their eyes, dress and act like fools and just don't care about anyone or thing but themselves and I'm terrified for my childrens generation. Its time that we as a people stood up against the music execs, the tv networks and say enough is enough and demand change or its just going to get worse. I get so mad just thinking about it because blacks are the main ones buying this junk and supporting the shows and its destroying our community and making people who don't give a damn about the black community money in the process smh

    I get where you're coming from and ill agree that prejudice is probably the better word for it in this country where we are the minority

    Candi Apple, let me say this. I overstand what you are saying and I receive it. I do get it. Let me also say, I have no problem with Sandra adopting this baby. Her adoption of his beautiful baby boy doesn't affect my life in the least. I don't even know Sandra, so I don't have the emotional attachment others might have, but nevertheless, more power to her.

    As far as the "blacks using racism as an excuse" argument. There are a segment of blacks that do that, but that's not my focus. Blacks are doing well. Why can't we acknowledge that first. There are some that use any excuse not to prosper, but that doesn't mean that that excuse isn't always valid. People of all races use excuses as to why they aren't successful, i.e. my childhood was poor to they grew up in a bad environment. Why don't we discuss those things. Why does everything negative have to have a black face to it. As far as this precious little boys is concerned, hopefully Sandra will teach him that we live in a world who isn't going to always be nice to him based on his skin color, and hopefully, she's employ others (hopefully black men) to help in the future understand things that she may not be able to explain.

    Again, I'm hearing exactly what you are saying.

    @ KrayZKat

    Thank you for your insight and knowledge. I've notice since you came on you not only stated your opinion but you brought facts. You also shut down many of these bigotry comments. Also,you showed it doesn't take sarcasm or a team of cosigners to feel your statement. Keep doing what you're doing and hopefully what you're doing will catch on.

  • Ms.Everything

    @Krazy I want to say I read it years ago but I'm gonna go to the library and read it again.

    @Candi, I don't think she is suggesting that we sweep these topics under the rug and not discuss them. I think part of the problem is that these social issues have been ignored for so long that now they are peeking our from under the carpet and falling out the closet faster than anyone would've expected and now we are seeing the results and repercussions of hiding our skeletons in the closet. As far as Sandra B. goes, I don't believe that she has any underlying intentions other than being a mother to the child that she's waited 40 years to have. The fact that babys last name is Bullock and not James tells that she wanted the baby more than her husband especially since the baby was adopted in January almost two months before word of the scandal broke and I'm sure that baby will attend a mixed race school and will be well taught of his history. So I'm not worried about him growing up confused and not knowing his history. I'm more worried about what the current state of hip hop and media is doing to our children and the impact that its having on black society

  • Candi Apple

    @Maintaining and your saying I did not display that? :rofl:

    Ms.Everything

    I dont know what you were reading but, She did say some of the very things I was talking about. And we were way past what you posted sorry.

  • NubianJ

    I can't believe there are Blacks out there that wholheartedly believe whitey really love us, care for us and will eventually save us. SMH. No one's looking at the fact she married that racist scum and is still married to him. She should have never stole him in the first place.
    Some of y'all are just ignorant and stupid. #thatisall

  • Ms.Everything

    Candi please don't start with me today. I'm asking nicely and letting you know I'm not in the mood for your hysteria this afternoon. I posted that before I refreshed and saw her response to you, not that I owe you any kind of excuse and you may be past the topic I posted on but that doesn't mean everyone is. Just like your comment prior to this one, you just need attention so you can start you crybaby act again. Stop looking for fights and problems, talking in circles and act like you have some sense for once. This is the last time I'll be addressing you

  • Candi Apple

    @Ms.Everything you would do best if you just STFU and stay out of my lane. Don't ever post to me. You don't make sense. How does one talk in circles... Ohhh it must have went over your head like it always does

  • Ms.Everything

    Nubian his exwife already came out and said that their divorce was final when Sandra and Jesse met and started dating. I don't know where that rumor came from but its already been proven wrong. And her divorce was announced today. If she were truly a racist she would've turned down the adoption when they said the baby was black and I honestly think he had a secret life that all came out at once. She actually moved out quietly before the mainstream media even picked up the story

  • Ms.Everything

    Take that back.. never once have I disrespected you, called you out your name or told you to shut up. Yet you go out your way to insult me based off a disagreement we had a month ago over Chris Brown where you thought I had everyone attacking you. I'm far from stupid but you wouldn't know that because you don't know me. All I am to you is a crying white baby on Sandra Rose so how dare you tell me to shut the f.u.c.k. up and how dare you again call me stupid. If you're so smart you would know what talking in circles meant but since you're clearly not let me explain. Talking in circles is when a person starts out at one point but ends up at a completely different one when they are finished because they are trying to conform their thoughts to what other people are saying. I've seen in this post and others. For someone so intelligent you should know that, you should also know how to spell and you should also be above trying to start ebeef on a blog with people you know nothing about and your best insult shouldn't be repeatedly calling someone stupid because of all the things people may say about me on here I'm pretty sure stupid, dumb or unintelligent isn't one of them. I'm not going to stoop to your level and call you out your name because I'm better than that and clearly better than you but I will say a prayer for your mental health well being and say God Bless You. Grudges are more damaging to the person holing the grudge than the person the grudge is against and clearly I mustve ruffled your feathers with something I said in the CB post unfortunately it was so long ago I barely remember it but like I said I'm gonna pray for you and I know God will see you through whatever problems you're going through that are so severe that you have to take them out on an unknown person on a blog. Have a great day :)

  • Candi Apple

    Again Ms.Everything STFU and stay in your land. Dont ever post to me. I just don't want to be your e-friend live with it

  • Ms.Everything

    :rofl: when did I ever ask to be friends? Seriously? But as I said before I'm gonna keep praying for you and asking God to bless you. Whatever it is, its gonna be alright. Since you have enough time to continue your e-attack on me for no reason I suggest you go back and read this post again and the other posts where you've lashed out at me and you'll see that I did or wrote nothing to deserve disrespect from you or anyone else. Then when you're ready to apologize ill be here waiting. God bless and have a good day

  • Candi Apple

    Get off my dyck I know its a good ride but stay in your lane.

  • SouthernPrincess

    I have no problem with her adopting a black baby. My issue is that she didn't know her husband is a Nazi lover. I don't believe that for a second, she knew and probably shared his thoughts/feelings on the issue
