    So in other words you want to start a club where a bunch of dudes wear skirts?

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    i thought that the pecking order, for lack of a better term, was that nearest matches would be placed first, and when you run out of near matches, then you start considering alternatives? If that were the case, then as I understand the statistics, blacks would never adopt or foster white children, because you would always run out of white children while there were still white adoptive or foster parents left over?

    I should also think that if it became common knowledge that white children were being placed with blacks, it would slow the complaint driven side of intervention in white families. I have no specific knowledge of the DCF business, but I would guess that a larger percentage of DCF interventions in white families are complaint driven, as opposed to the police referring a large percentage of the blacks. AM I wrong?

    The real crux of this story is that blacks are more racist than whites are. Hell, blacks don't even like their own. If you're light skinned, you're a near pariah.

    That seems to be true from my experience too, unfortunately.
