White Celebrities Who Adopt Black and Bi-racial Children
I’ve always appreciated and looked up to individuals who adopt children and take great care of them. Keyword, take care of them. (Because we know some trifling people do it for a check) There are so many risks when you adopt children, and it takes a special person to open up their home to a child and make them feel like part of the family when they have no connection to them beforehand. But I’ve noticed a lot of talk lately about the fact that big name white celebrities have been adopting black and bi-racial kids. There’s been a great deal of apprehension about it. A lot of people, mostly black folks, aren’t as excited about it, some claiming celebrities adopt black children like they’re the newest handbag or accessory. But others do bring up the valid point that there is a worry that adopted black children may wind up not being fully exposed to their culture and heritage, making it hard for them to relate to their own people. But what do you think?
While you ponder the thought, check out the awesome slideshow put together by our friends over at Uptown Magazine, which lists some of the most high-profile celebrities and their adopted black and bi-racial kiddies. Some you might not have known about before, others you’ve heard about time and time again. And whether you’re a supporter of these adoptions or not, it’s better that these children who need a home, get one.
