Jen Graves, Black Kids in White Houses: On Race, Silence, and the Changing American Family
(via brandx) whoa whoa whoa no! A racist that adopts a black baby thinking this will somehow teach their other racist family members to love black people is inviting a child into a world of hatred they may never fully understand and that did nothing to deserve.

Sapelo Island, Georgia — It’s a culture struggling to survive. Fewer than 50 people — all descendants of slaves — fear they may soon be taxed out of the property their families have owned since the days of slavery.
They are the Gullah-Geechee people of Sapelo Island off Georgia’s coast, near Savannah. This small, simple community is finding itself embroiled in a feud with local officials over a sudden, huge increase in property assessments that are raising property taxes as much as 600% for some.

It will be a shame not to preserve””That’s part of the American history. That’s part of what built this country,” said Charles Hall, 79, a retired U.S. Air Force colonel who was born under a midwife’s care in the same home he lives in today.
McIntosh County’s decision to reappraise homes on the island sparked the problem.
