african babies

I think it's great that owning african babies are en vogue. though it appears madonna is going to be renting one, she's no less committed then a rightful owner.

what I can't seem to get my head around is america's ability to embrace african babies and still find the time to shun black babies.

the color of their skin is the same, no? if I'm not mistaken they both bleed red. I suppose it's possible african babies have a softer red hue, but the similarities should be uncanny.

so, if someone could PLEASE EXPLAIN to me how it is fucking possible that we can live in a country that practices inequality, segregation and discrimination against black people yet manages to embrace african babies, I would really appreciate it.

oh, and while you're at it, make a pit stop in any predominantly black neighborhood, and of course justify why it is that a predominantly black neighborhood exists in america circa 2006 in the first place. and, also explain why poverty, violence, lack of education, and a complete and total disregard of their unalienable rights is the american way... that would be great.

better yet, make it easy on yourself. just read them the second paragraph of the declaration of independence and let them know that it doesn't translate.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

It's all about kewl, I think. It's kewl to save some baby from dying of malnutrition in Africa as opposed to saving one who could die of neglect or abuse in this country. Which isn't really a color issue.

Your High Cuntiness, the whole thing is meshugge, the the most literal sense of that grandiose word. Both the facts that Madonna is being seen as the great baby stealing ganef Moloch and as some cleanedup version of Lilith, you know the fucking crazy new age WASP kind is enough to drive this Jew boy journalist insane.

Not about color. Where is that nebbish from? Everything sonny boy in Amurrica is about color. Black get back, white is right; and if it's green you make the scene.

My research staff loves your site and so do I!

Please clue me in when you get the answers to these burning questions, and please also add:
Why is it some days as a country we are working to prevent/stop AIDS in America, some days we are working to prevent/stop AIDS in Africa, and some days we couldn't give a rats' ass about anyone with AIDS?

'...but for all intensive purposes the similarities should be uncanny...'
STOP IT !!!
There is no such phrase as 'for all intensive purposes', Katie.
It's 'for all intent and purpose'.
That's like fingernails down the blackboard of language for me.
Arrgghhh...
Nice post by the way; what a lot of ridiculous fuss over one adoption when there are millions of other kids out there with a similar plight. Of course the whole adoption thing will be forgotten once the media tires of Madonna's heroics and finds something else to carp about...

katie schwartz said...

edgy mama,

no. it's not a color issue at all. agreed.

I simply find it ridiculous that adopting children falls into a "trendy" category. I can't get my head around it.

katie schwartz said...

katie schwartz said...

fingers... how do you really feel? no. seriously?

please forgive me for my gross negligent oversight. it was the middle of the night. I realize that's no excuse for my ignorant behavior.

Katie, Katie, Katie...

You missed the key point to all of these self-serving celebrity adoption crusades: it isn't about a baby. It's about an "african baby".

Sponsoring a "black" baby from the ghettos of Martha's Vineyard would only invite scorn and contempt from Madonna's peers who have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars being filmed flying to Africa to get their take-away toddlers - not to mention the lawsuits and separation issues when the "black" baby grows up and sees the life of crack addiction, and jail time he or she missed out on.

No, the "african baby" option is a much better road to take, not only being a coup in the society pages stakes, but also ensuring significant tax benefits for the "parents". And I use that term loosely, because let's all remember that these kids will grow up with Hispanic accents anyway: like Madonna or Angelina have more than about 7 1/2 minutes a day in their schedule to stop and play. It will be Consuella or Rosa who will do the real parenting, after all...

Clearly you're bitter that they wouldn't let you and your cunty money buy a baby Katie. I'll get you one.

Well, on the subject of adopting little black babies, I believe my stance has always been quite public.
I'm a World Vision addict.
I've been collecting spades for 5 years now; got 5 of the little buggers...5 spades...I call them my flush.
You should see the latest one, she's so cute. From Haiti, braided pigtails...she loves playing with dolls (probably a witch over there).
Just about to take delivery of #6 from Costa Rica...

Mountjoy said...

I always wondered how you got such pure blow into Oz, fingers. You probably wouldn't fit much inside of one, but the 1kg container of "baby powder" they come with is just thumbing your nose at our customs inspectors...

katie schwartz said...

mount joy, I am on my knees bowing to you!

katie schwartz said...

mount joy, you are brilliant

katie schwartz said...

dale... what bug crawled up your ass and died? spill, bubbie, spill.

katie schwartz said...

finger fuck::: you are sick. promise me you will never change!

Mountjoy said...

Katie, it would be utterly remiss of me NOT to say" "While you're down there"...

katie schwartz said...

joy juice, if you didn't say it, I would feel dismissed and you wouldn't want that, would you?!
