Goddddd dammmit. Another one. I honestly thought this trend was coming to a close with Brangelina adopting most of the Eastern Hemisphere. But nope! Here we go again. The black baby emporium has been on an upslide lately; Sandra Bullock, Mariska Hargitay, Madonna, Mary Louise-Parker, etc. Sandra of course, went out and snatched a little brownie after her breakup with Uncle Hitler a.k.a. Jesse James. Fair enough. Personally, I think a drug binge or some slutty behavior wuld have sufficed, but, do you gurl. I noticed Mariska Hargitay with a suspiciously dark-pigmented bundle of joy a few weeks ago and rolled my eyes at that a little but I have secretly harbored an SVU-induced crush on her for the past few years so I let it slide.
But then I ran across the above pic of Kristin Davis and her new daughter, Gemma Rose. Gemma, of course, is black. First of all, that is the WASPIEST name of life. Poor little Gem Gem is gonna get a rude awakening when she goes in for a job interview and they are expecting someone that looks like Justin Bieber (thats a girl right?) and in walks Beyonce. I can personally attest to this because although my first name is kind ethnic-ish, I know when I speak to them first on the phone they are surprised when my brown ass walks in, in Blowfish dress flats, because faces can never hide surprise ya’ll, fact. I have secretly hated Charlotte York Goldenblatt (I refuse to address her further by her real name or separate her from her Sex and the City character) for yearssss because of her character on that show and her plethora of “rich-white-lady-problems”. Bitch, you live in an Upper West Side, by New York standards, mansion. You volunteer at an art gallery. You volunteer. In. New York. Your life is awesome. Fictional or not, even playing this character gives you a sense of entitlement and pretentiousness I dont care what she is like in real life. Also, she adopted a Chinese baby in the series if you recall. Art imitating life?
I am actually a huge supporter of interracial families and adoptions and I think/hope at some point we will all be so integrated racially that racism will cease to exist. Plus mixed babies have a 95% of being completely sick-ning (in the good way) looking, so why not!!?!?
Here’s the deal. I do believe that normal (middle class) families are LESS likely to adopt a black baby than another race for a plethora of reasons, take your pick. Celebrities have the resources (money, best schools, etc) to provide a life for a baby that might otherwise go overlooked. NOT SAYING that average people don’t want to adopt black babies, I know many that are. JUST SAYING, I’m trying to come up with a reason for why every time I turn around I see another celeb with
the new Birkin Bag a black baby.
But wait, who is gonna do their hairrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I hope they don’t end up looking like this.
Honestly though, show me a ugly black baby and I’ll show you 500 ugly white ones, sorryboutcha but at least from the beginning they are wayyyy cuter so I can’t even hate on the Bogo sale going on right now.
