I Wonder....

Barack Obama is biracial. The son of an American white woman and an African black man.

His winning the presidency yesterday brings this thought to my mind. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, many black social workers were against white people adopting and rearing black children.

Yet as we celebrate the election of Barack Obama to the presidency, doesn't he represent the very thing that black social workers opposed?????
