Attention White Adoptive Parents With Brown Kids: Read This

The language of this post from our friend at Slant Eye For The Round Eye is colorful, but the point is clear.  I encourage all adoptive parents, especially those who adopted a child of color, to read Slanty’s letter to “Funny White People” because there’s a good chance that your son or daughter will experience something similar in the checkout line.

“Dear Funny White People,

I don’t want to steal whatever it is in your cart that you have that I can just go onto the shelf and get myself. That’s why we go to the store – so we don’t have to fight over adult diapers and Efferdent.” (source)
