"My wife and I are thinking of adopting and shockingly found in Texas, the cost for a white infant was $35,000 and the cost of a black infant was $17,000 – these are published numbers on private adoption websites."
BUT OMG RACISM DOESN’T EXIST!
That is seriously disturbing.
That’s not even like, a minor difference. Jesus.
And yet people don’t wanna hear it when I say black bodies are LITERALLY devalued.
White babies cost more than twice as much… you’ve gotta be fucking kidding me
I keep quoting this statistic as one of the many reasons “just put your baby up for adoption!” is flawed, but it’s always nice to have it brought up again.(via longsightmyth)
