    Exclamation Adopting black kids does not make you "not a racist"

    I happen to agree, it is nothing but empty virtue signaling.

    Adopt some poor white kids from Russia, for example, instead.


    Ibram Kendi: ‘Too Many White People’ Believe They Can’t Be Racist if They Adopt Black Children

    Ibram X. Kendi, director of Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research, wrote on Saturday that white people who adopt black children may be “racist,” joining a growing group of Democrats and leftists commenting on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Haitian son and daughter.

    Kendi wrote on social media: “Some White colonizers ‘adopted” Black children. They ‘civilized’ these ‘savage’ children in the ‘superior’ ways of White people, while using them as props in their lifelong pictures of denial, while cutting the biological parents of these children out of the picture of humanity.”

    “And whether this is Barrett or not is not the point,” he continued. “It is a belief too many White people have: if they have or adopt a child of color, then they can’t be racist.”

    Kendi concluded, “I’m challenging the idea that White parents of kids of color are inherently ‘not racist’ and the bots completely change what I’m saying to ‘White parents of kids of color are inherently racist.’ These live and fake bots are good at their propaganda. Let’s not argue with them.”

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) described Kendi’s posts as “a cruel, racist attack against Judge Barrett and her family.”

    On Monday, Kendi opined more on whether someone can be free from racism: “we should eliminate the term ‘not racist’ from the human vocabulary,” he wrote. “We are either being racist or antiracist.” After receiving thousands of responses in backlash, he deleted the post, but he insisted to his critics that “not racist” is a phrase without meaning.

    So what does “not racist” mean? The term has no meaning other than denying when one is being racist. We should not have words in the dictionary that don’t have definitions.

    — Ibram X. Kendi (@DrIbram) September 21, 2020

    Kendi expressed support for expansion of the Supreme Court, known as court packing, if Barrett is confirmed as a Supreme Court justice.

    “White supremacy” and “white privilege” are widespread phenomena in American society, Kendi regularly declares.

    Kendi, author of Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America and How to Be an Antiracist, was recently a featured guest on Oprah Winfrey’s eponymous Apple TV series. Winfrey praised Kendi’s derision of America as a nation pathologized by racism primarily targeting black people.

    Beyond Oprah Winfrey, Kendi’s narratives have been promoted by technology company CEOs like Jack Dorsey and left-wing media.

    Good point...you're right, that should be the first "go-to".

    While I suppose, in some cases, it may come down to virtue signaling, I think in most cases it comes down to availability in certain age groups.

    My guess is that American adoptions are mostly troubled kids that are not infants. People want to adopt a baby not someone else's nightmare.

    I was adopted. I was a baby. Plenty of babies. All it is virtue signaling especially from some "Christians".

    How old are you? My sister adopted 3 kids from out of the country more than 20 years ago. From what I heard babies in the US are hard to come by. Also very expensive to adopt. I think she spent like 25k per child. I don't know that it is hard to adopt American babies. I could be very wrong.

    American adoptions are:

    A) Mostly non-white
    B) Not as... "cool" or "exotic" or "virtue signall-y" as adopting a kid from a third world country


    A loses you one type of potential adopters, B loses you a different type

    I would suspect, that an orphan in Haiti is in more peril than one here.

    I thought the left was all about the children and open borders and healthcare and..... What more could a minority child wish for?

    I believe its easier to adopt from overseas than to adopt domestically. Hollywood stars have said as much too. But I don't know diddly about this.

    In the highly superficial hypocritical political culture of DC lately, there is some merit to cynicism behind above claim.
    If tomorrow Prez Trump & FLOTUS adopted someone like younger Kanye West or Rocky A$AP, those in fakenews media who incorrectly called him 'racist' won't stop most likely.

    Motive matters, doing anything purely on skin tone base is usually not a good indicator.

    Some say this attack was enhanced by preplanning by those knowing Amy Comey Barret is a Catholic who adopted two Haitian Children, but has a deficit in conservative rulings.
