Michael Jackson was “Black and White,” but Twins?

With Obama doing his “black thing” by attempting to level out the playing ground around the world, there are couples doing the same thing in their homes with twins!  That’s right, they are twins born to one surprised couple, while one black couple ends up with a blue-eyed, blond daughter!

Most neighborhoods are predominantly black or white, so whether you live in one or the other, it’s a choice.  What does someone with a mixed family do?  What is the reaction at church or school?  I know, church is where God is and it’s peaceful there–not by my experience.  It is, however, covered up better.  How strong do the parents need to be to stand up to their choice to keep the babies, and what about the children?

My blue-eyed blond husband and myself tried for a long time to have children and when we couldn’t, took in two beautiful black children, hoping to adopt them.  Being in Utah and being black must be very difficult, and I know first hand that being a “mixed family” isn’t as readily accepted as other parts of the world.  The problem isn’t acceptance in families, though–it’s families accepted by their country.

You see there’s a war going on, despite the crisis overseas, right here in this country, and it isn’t being addressed.  But then when someone sees this beautiful family who takes on the challenge, doesn’t it make you wonder if it weren’t for skin color, how very different the world would be?  After all, I’ve never seen a prejudiced zebra!  Have you?
