Yes, I mean you!
The Washington Post appears to keep changing the headline on the article about the kid with TB whose parents used privilege to get her to the States. It’s now “A Special Delivery Well Worth the Wait.” Gag me.
For some reason I keep reading the comments at various news sites like a looky-loo running to witness the aftermath of a train wreck. What can I say, it’s a psychological deficiency. Anyway, here’s one for the books:
Also, how you can equate the wrong policies and practices against native American Indians with people adopting from China is bizarre. We adoptive parents want to nurish and protect the children we adopt.
Also, I know of no highly racist environment against people from China. Be that as it may, if you live in the USA and find it so objectionable here, move to China! My little girl from China will not be moving back anytime soon.
Can’t say as how I’m surprised.
Because I heard “Go back to China!” on more than one occasion from a white adoptive parent. It should probably be a WIHAP post. Mostly it’s a good example of how white adoptive parents don’t see their children as belonging to the Chinese community. Because I’m sure this commenter’s kid will hear “Go back to China!” eventually.
If she hasn’t heard it already.
