I wonder if anyone has asked her if she sees her black children as 5/8ths of her white children.
Anyway, I freaking HATED her statement talking about her kids. All her white kids got to have academic dreams and aspirations and personalities. Her adopted kids got talked about in context of their adoption. Except her black daughter who is as strong as a man. And it was a prepared statement - does she not see how messed up that is? It seemed like she and her husband are so lucky to have her white kids but her black children are so lucky to have them.
I wasn;t bothered so much by her talking about her kids. They appear loved and cared for. I;m REALLY bothered by the Republicans' eagerness to use her kids as props. With the unsaid subtext of "wow, she adopted black kids! That's AMAZING!" It's really not THAT amazing to adopt kids of a different race -- it's pretty common actually. And having them there day after day in her confirmation hearings is ... okay, we already saw them. They should go back to school.
