    We shouldn't care about the color of the skin or if their gay or if they have a disability, It's the fact the we are all people and we need to help one another.

    The pro-black people are not happy with this. They say whites only adopt black for an financial investment(see Michael Oher)

    These dislikes are either racist white ppl or bitter black ppl. Guaranteed one of the two or a mixture of both

    I'm too lazy to google (yay, me) but what's the history of the court hammer? Or like the gist of it or something. Haha googling will probably give very technical results that my 1 remaining brain cell probably wouldn't be able to comprehend 😅😅😅

    kids really should be reared in their extreme cases maybe OK,,it's nothing against this family but all too often the kids become conflicted and either act out against the parents or against society in later life bc they feel they do not belong more Colin Kaepernicks, pls

      a lot better being adopted by a white couple, than not being adopted at all. considering they are black and not so young, they got extremely lucky to be adopted at all. i imagine they would have a lifetime of heartaches and trouble if they weren't adopted, considering black culture.

    Both these black kids are going to end up being criminals. They should have adopted white kids.

    Just the fact that they are adopting these kids says so much about their hearts. They know the looks they will get and everything else from the ignorance folks spew on to other people. But they are still doing this anyway. If there were more people like them in this world, how much peaceful of a place this would be.
