I’ll start with my adoption microaggressions!

unsungvoicesexperience:

I hate when people say “your parents are so great for having adopted you. I could never adopt. I wouldn’t love it as much as a kid that was, you know, my own.” 

If you’re so narcissistic that you honestly think you wouldn’t love an adopted child as much as one that’s your biological issue, DON’T FUCKING HAVE KIDS AT ALL

I’m no longer welcome around my mothers side of the family because i heard my uncle call my mother a nigger lover last night while he was talking to his wife, thinking that nobody could hear him and i broke his nose

i had to jump because im a midget but i broke his fucking nose

but my mother got mad at me for it

so i feel alone as fuck right now

my mom is siding with her white family over her biracial daughter and black husband

my heart feels like it’s being torn apart. my mama walked right past me and hugged my uncle

was i in the wrong? did i take it too far? i mean, i didn’t even say a word to him. just socked him and left him on the floor. please give me your input, because im confused as hell right now

Bravo madame brafuckingvo.

your mother aint shit.

may seem rude, but true.

stack your paper and move.

and keep in contact with at least 2 ppl who have some sense.

Well, now at least you know. Your mom is White and loves Whiteness more than her own husband and child.

So much for that “I’m not racist. My spouse is [non-White ethnicity] and my child is half [non-White ethnicity].” shit.

"#170. One of the hardest parts about being adopted for me is my family’s ignorance to me being an adopted and a person of color. They go make adoption jokes and racist remarks without even realizing how offensive it is. And I have to sit there and say nothing because speaking out would make me “ungrateful” and “offensive to them”. I’ve lost a lot of respect for my “family”, who I’m suppose to love unconditionally. But I’ll never fit in or belong… And I’ve given up trying to."

This is so true for a lot of my extended family.

bruh!

Same face I made when I read that. Smh Because being a black man and a “scruff” is so the same thing. Idiot woman.

White people in a nutshell when we talk about racial issues of any POC.

When I first watched this, the ‘scruff’ comment came across also as a layered insult towards the black dude’s hair and clothing, prescribing white standards of appearance, slapping him into a crude caricatures in effort to demean him. Of course, the TV cameras loved it, it showed a good ol’ bit of ‘debate’ and ‘controversy’ and allowed white viewers to validate their own racist perspectives in the interests of ‘impartiality’ and ‘showing both sides of the coin’. God, she was such a vile woman.

It was St. Patricks Day. I asked my dad, because I like to pick with him, shouldnt you be celebrating? Your ancestors where Indian and Irish. My dad’s family had a small family reunion and traced back their ancestry and found that they had Irish and Indian in their family. That would explain the green eyes and nice hair. He said ” you have Irish in you too”. I hate when he does that. I say ” Dad I dont have Irish in my family” and he says ” but you’re my daughter” and I say ” Yeah but I’m not Irish” and he says ” you’re my daughter so you’re Irish.” I knew he was going to keep going so I gave in.

Ugh, it’s so gross when adoptive family members and bio spawn try to force us to identify one way or the other. It especially sucks when they do so at the expense of our birth heritage.

It should be obvious to even the most outside of onlookers, but it’s COMPLETELY up to the adoptee (and no one else) to choose whether or not to identify with our adoptive heritage.

Any adoptee who identifies with their adoptive heritage is right. Any adoptee who does NOT identify with their adoptive heritage is right.
More power to you either way. <3 X
