Isn't That Really What These Trans-Racial Adoptions are?
So there is a controversial video out there Question: When white folks go to Africa and "adopt a child" much like you adopt a pet from a pound, because they feel that the child "needs help" how is it really different? Doctors without borders and their ilk don't go and build infrastructure, they come in "feed the locals" and then wait for the replacements. No seriously. Think about it. Do you really think that this idea popped into the mind of the creator just all willy nilly? I think that this is at the very least subconsciously how Africans are looked at the world over. It's expression is different whither the thinker is liberal or conservative but both parties do see the African in general as dependent...much like a pet dog. Provides amusement, will provide for protection (as in armed services) and if left uncontrolled may cause mayhem (crime). None of this shocks me. What is shocking is that people don't realize the thought patterns are out there. Much like the 12 Years a Slave posters were changed for certain audiences.
