Re: 'Partner' Ben Maisani and Anderson Cooper to Adopt Haitian Orphan?

Wow! You know, it's funny, tho ... just last night I was passing by his show and it struck me that you never hear or see anything about Anderson and a woman ... no wife, no girlfriend or 'female companion' that you might see him pictured with at parties or events. And that, in fact, you don't see him pictured at many parties or events, period! You rarely see him 'off camera'. And then I thought, well, he's a pretty busy man .. always on the go ... jetting around the world at a moment's...

Yes first its been rumored for some time now that Cooper Anderson is gay. So I guess the rumors are true. I'm wondering how, after that terrible article about the homosexual man was abusing his adopted black son(s) in North Carolina AND how they were able to 'get' a Haitian child adopted so quickly?

RE: african american children being adopted outside the country... There are a lot of African American children in the foster care system and it's harder to get them placed with families. Also the system has yet to adjust to African-American culture where our peeps are more likely to do "informal adoptions" ie take in a grandchild or a neice/nephew or a play-cousin than go into an agency to fill out a gabillion page application, be investigated... and so forth. Most of us know somebody who...

Well, my wife and I are in the process. We have an agency and are scheduled for a home study. There are a lot of hoops to jump through with respect to the process. The average adoption ranges between $20,000 - $35,000. A home study is ~ $3500, background check ~ $250, legal fees, court cost, agency fees, etc. It is less expensive to get a waiting child, and there are great needs there, but one also has to realize that many of the children have a host of medical and psychological issues that...

Well, I think in a way that Nspirt's point and kresge's point are interconnected. Yes, there are a lot of children in the system - waaaaay too many - but, not nearly even a close to adequate number of caseworkers to properly maintain the system. Plus, as he pointed out, so many of these children have deep issues that keep them from being considered for adoption by many people I think I read somewhere that states would need to triple the number of child caseworkers they currently employ to...

I know that jury selection is a strategy. And I know Creshuna Miles was picked because she is a black woman whose political views seem to be able to lay race to the side, even when it is so glaringly obvious She might have laid race aside, but when she went to the Ladies' Room and accidentally looked into the damn mirror, she FORGOT what she was doing; she FORGOT why she was there. She got scared some kind of way, she just wasn't scared straight. Do they have any black "beauty" parlors in...

The only reason I can eek out her a pass is because she is so young and I know that she is operating out of gross ignorance and the 'white-washed' perceptions that have been allowed to be written on her "Blank Slate".

Yes I too believe that they strategically selected this young girl for two reasons: (1) she was a black woman (2) she could be easily manipulated and influenced by her white counterparts. Cuz usually during jury selection each attorney ask specific questions to determine if said juror would be unbiased and stick to the facts...and also if some jurors are followers and if some are leaders. It was quickly determined that by choosing a young black woman that white jurors would be comfortable...

Cooperatives and the Black Liberation Movement By ABS Staff - February 20, 2017 0 74 Cooperatives have long been a component of Black survival and economic development in the United States.
