…and only adopt ones from this country, the United States. I don’t really know how often regular people adopt African and Chinese babies, but my perception is that Madonna and Angelina Jolie have been doing the bulk of it. These two self-righteous Hollywood liberal do-gooders are probably both complete hypocrites.
You’ll often hear people like this go on and on about how it is crucial that we focus on our domestic issues first, rather than trying “police the world.” After all, how can we solve the world’s problems if we have so many unsolved ones here at home?
You might respond with, “But what’s the difference if somebody is an orphan child in China, Zaire, or in Detroit?” THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. A child in need anywhere is tragic.
All I’m asking is for some consistency. Not saying we should ignore the rest of the world and become isolationist — that’d be extreme. But when Jolie and Madonna adopt foreign children, to me it’s gross. It’s almost as if they are adopting a breed of dog, picking and choosing cute exotic ones that strike their fancy.
***After being reminded/informed by Jessica how difficult it is to adopt children in this country. I felt the need to add more to this.
It is way too difficult to adopt kids in this country. If you beat the shit out of your biological kids, you get many opportunities to keep ‘em. Yet, if you want to adopt, it’s an expensive, arduous, and unnecessary process. And if you’re a gay couple, you can probably forget it in most places. I say if you want a kid, have a kid. I wouldn’t even screen people first. Sure if the people turn out to be unfit as parents, you take the kid back. But c’mon you can spot a loving couple pretty quickly. And if they desperately want a child, who’s more fit to be better parents than those WHO ACTUALLY WANT CHILDREN.
That all being said, celebrities still hate adopting white kids.
