it's called racism. and yes, it is horrible...especially when people cry and moan about wanting a baby, yet turn up their noses at babies who really need homes. now, the interesting caveat: if your baby was born in africa, then he/she would be more attractive...exotic, even.
this is why i encourage any woman with a black or bi-racial baby to try everything she can to keep the child. because, there are sick, twisted folks out here who will call your child "special needs" or encourage "alternative families" to adopt. the only time a black or bi-racial baby is desired is when there is a couple with the moola waiting in the wings. other than that, your baby will most likely end up in foster care.
i'd seriously rethink your decision to place your child...
ETA: hey reezo, why don't you and silver hang out and swap stories about all the abandoned 'colored' kids; who should adopt them---and then join the rest of us in the 21st century. oh, God just called and canceled your christian memberships. silver... "colored?" are you serious????
mother of 3 'colored' children who have 100-times the moral compass than a couple of pseudo-christians!
