How come the vast majority of white celebrities adopt babies of color even thought the majority of the children for adoption are white?

Also how come it's really rare to see a celebrity of color adopting a white kid?

    Your stats on who's available for adoption aren't accurate. But some people like to use adoption to make a point, such as Angelina Jolie's various tattoos that mark the latitude and longitude of where all her children were born. Madonna's fixation with adoption kids from Mali probably falls into a similar arena. However, there are just as many if not more white celebrities with white adopted kids.

    Where did you get your information. I have two adopted children one is white and one is not. I had to wait fourteen years before the second child and she is not white.

    Because it plays better in the media. A lot of celebs drive a Prius, putting themselves out there as being very concerned about the environment. Why not other hybrid cars, you may ask? Because of the distinctive shape the Prius used to have, very recognizable as a hybrid car. Why drive a hybrid if it does not look like one? Why not adopt a child that looks the least like you , thus letting the whole world know how benevolent, loving and concerned your are? Celebs are all about image.

    Certain types of people like to be above what makes most people tick.

    A good quarter of upper middle class women waste their lives consumed with borderline anorexia too. Anything to be superior and overcome a basic need of most.

    I agree with other poster that you have your adoption statistics way off.

    Most children available for adoption are not white.

    Wrong. It's 37%

    Thirty-seven percent of adopted children are non-Hispanic white, compared with adoptive parents, 73% of which are non-Hispanic white. Overall, 40% of adopted children are of a different race, culture, or ethnicity than both of their adoptive parents (or their sole parent if there is only one parent in the household).

      37% adopted children are white... 50+ is the majority. 37% means minority

    Healthy, white newborns and healthy, white, young children are solid gold in the adoption world. Competition for them is fierce. I'm not sure where you got the idea that it's otherwise.

    Black people are allowed to be racist and white celebrities won't get SJW brownie points by adopting non-victims.
