Black couples that adopt white babies & 10 White Celebs with Black Children

Back in 2008, NFL player DeMarcus Ware and his wife Taniqua caught a lot of criticism over their decision to adopt a white baby. Some argued that White babies are easily adopted as there are long waiting lines for them, but that black babies in America have a shortage of adoptive parents. But to the Wares, they say they fell in love with a little baby and paid no attention to its color.  After struggling to conceive and dealing with many miscarriages and a still born, the couple delivered a baby boy last year, November 2010, named DeMarcus Ware, Jr.
In the reverse, celebrities like Madonna, Angelina Jolie, Sandra Bullock, HBO's Weeds actress Mary Louise Parker, Hugh Jackman,  Stephen Spielberg, Michelle Pfeiffer, Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise, all have adopted black or bi-racial children without much fuss.

What are your thoughts? Is it wrong or a bigger deal for black couples to adopt white babies versus the reverse? If so, why?

Here are ten non-Black celebrities who have adopted Black children from the United States, Haiti and Africa.

  2. I think anyone should be able to adopt any child in need of a family. To believe that it's wrong for Black parents to adopt White children has also including the thought that White children are somehow harmed by having Black parents with the "cover" that there are more Black children in need homes more than White children. Thus White children should be saved for only White couples to adopt. Interracial adoption by White parents is so common that the word itself means White parents adopting Black children. Equality in adoption should including Black parents adopting White children just as much as White parents adoption Black children.

  3. I totally agree, more black people should come forward and adopt out of their race and if that means a white child do be it

  4. We as black people can be hypocrites. We become irate about the large number of black children to be adopted, and then when white people show their love by adopting them, we criticize them. On the flip side, we criticize a system which presents obstacles for blacks who want to adopt white children, but when they succeed, we don't congratulate them, we, again criticize.
