Nope. Even the pbs story (which actually focused on a foster care case that resulted in death) acknowledged that white folks had a higher percentage of abuse, but that didn't translate into their kids being taken away or them being dragged into the court system with social workers, foster care and the like. It even made pointed reference to the derision poor mothers (yes, there is a class element to the disparity) were subjected to by case workers, not because they were accused of any type of abuse, but because they were poor and needed assistance. Frequently, requests for assistance set the stage for questionable charges of abuse and/or neglect against poor mothers.
