white bio spawn have been even more obnoxious as of late
i had someone try to convince me that i’m not actually Indigenous since I was
adopted outstolen from my nations, but that I also can’t claim my adoptive family’s heritage (Scottish) since i’m not actually related to them by blood
keep changing your views to erase my identity and existence as much as possible, yt ppl
"BUT WHY AREN’T YOU GRATEFUL"
Lol, I agree on the inexplicably increased levels of obnoxiousness… maybe something about the season stirs even more resentment in their narrow, mundane existences about us knowing and encompassing multiple worlds they can’t imagine. X
I’ve never heard the term “trans-ethnic” before I saw it tonight in a reblog of someone I follow, so I googled it and I’ve concluded…
"Trans-ethnic" is basically just a term for white people who are pretending to be POC/appropriating the culture of POC and then claiming they are oppressed because they are white people who are pretending to be and/or appropriating the culture of POC. Yes?
What. The. FUCK. is wrong with people?
I know this is an old post, but I couldn’t not say something. Transethnic is a legitimate term that has been co-opted by dickheads who attempt to make it mean something it doesn’t actually mean.
Transethnic is a term used by adoptees who are of one ethnicity and have been adopted/raised by people of a different ethnicity. That is it’s true meaning and correct context.
Transracial is another adoptee-related term that keeps getting co-opted by racists. It’s real - in the context of adoptees being raised by people of another race (99.99999% of times it’s POC adoptees raised by white people).
But, yes, transethnic and transracial are real things. Just not in the ways those gross people would have you believe.
More info found here:
“Pro-tip: Transethnic adoptees who have been taken out of our birth communities and raised in white households are indeed ‘a thing’,despite white oppression-fetishizing fucks trying their damndest hijacking our terms.”
Actually, just searching transethnic on Brand X’s blog will give a wealth of information.
Eee, class bastards all over the world are giving me such LIFE today — many thanks, inthepocketofherraincoat *doffs cap* X
And to OP: I get that your heart’s in the right place and you’re trying to take white folks to task for co-opting the oppression of POC, but what you are actually doing is propagating the erasure of POC (especially children of color) by white supremacists with your buying into their hijacked notion of transethnicity.
Cut it out plz.
Gus T. Renegade, host of online radio program, The Context of White Supremacy, in recent blog post entitled, Melissa Harris-Perry: Transracial Adoption = White Abduction of Non-White Children (via codelens)
Actually, Hollywood is a mere drop in the bucket when it comes to fueling transracial adoption, international AND domestic.
Ugh, I really need to finish up that "Everything You Think You Know about the Global Orphan Crisis is Wrong" post, because of all the nonpartisan misconceptions about adoption, this is the biggest.
The REAL culprits behind transracial/ethnic adoption are geopolitical ethnocidal capitalist agendas that span literally over half a millennium, where the actual influencers driving up the child trafficking $30,000-$50,000 USD per “Third World orphan” demand are just average Christian conservatives and everyday liberal “multiculturalists.”
*continues to dream about what my fancy shawl regalia would look like even though i have no one to teach me how to dance, have no clue how to go about making the regalia, and there are never any gatherings or powwows in my neck of the woods anyways*
Hey folks? ^THIS right here is one of the legacies of the residential schools, and centuries of “Kill the Indian, Save the Child” agendas I just posted about — the fact that an Ashinaabi-Tsalagi kid transethnically adopted into a necessarily whitey mcwhiterson family has no idea how to go about accessing/expressing her own damn culture and is so separated from her birth community that she has no means of learning it — in person, at least…
So do us a favor and boost fifthblackbird’s post in hopes of people on here from aforementioned tribes seeing it and stepping forward to help this class bastard out!
Also, she’s feeling a bit sickly and under the weather, so wish her a speedy recovery while you’re at it, tnx in advance X
There was a terrible movie with Halle Berry as a mom whose kid is taken away from her and raised by white people who are so pure and loving. I remember watching it on Lifetime back in the 90s with my shitty adoptive family. This was when I first learned that there was some controversy around white people adopting people of other races/ethnicities. My adoptive mom pointed to this movie and was like, “This is why it’s not wrong!” as if she were one of those crappy English teachers who mistake Lord of the Flies with a research paper. Good job distinguishing fantasy from reality, as in reality you regularly use racial slurs and are this bizarre Italo-supremecist, all other races bow before the might of Italy wait you were born in NYC why and wtf is your fetish for Puerto Rican kids.
In one, the 1995 movie Losing Isaiah, Halle Berry stars as a crackhead named Khaila who leaves her baby, Isaiah, in a trash can while she goes to find some crack. He’s discovered, taken to a hospital, and adopted by Jessica Lange’s character, Margaret. When Khaila cleans up and discovers her son is still alive, she wants him back, and a judge orders his return. But it is too late—the toddler is attached to Margaret, and he doesn’t respond to Khaila. Khaila is forced to admit that Margaret has become her son’s mother. The last scene shows Margaret and Isaiah reunited over some toys, and Khaila playing alongside them. A title card flashes: “And a little child shall lead them, Isaiah 11:6.”
A little child shall lead them… One of the reasons I’d been looking into transracial adoption was to teach racist family members of mine a lesson. I had other reasons too—I’ve been debating whether to become a parent for a while—but this one was the most embarrassing. In my fantasy, I hadn’t considered how exactly I would protect my child. The child was a means to an end, a healing agent:
Want to rid your parents of their overt racism? Give them black grandchildren and defy them not to love them! Need to atone for your own covert racism? Adopt a black child and let him teach you!”
