Émilie Régnier: Mali Passport

via foam: ‘I am really driven by the idea of showing a West African society that is growing,’ says Régnier. That means ignoring the easy and the rote: pictures of elites quaffing champagne, or images cataloguing the atrocities of war. Witnessing with a camera takes many forms. For Régnier, photographic truth is located in the bodily presence of young West Africans proudly negotiating their future, a diverse future of many possibilities.’

U.S. Mother Gives Away 5-Year-Old Adopted Child From Haiti For Throwing Temper Tantrum




"Having an instant multicultural family was magical for about two weeks,” says Stacey Conner, a 41-year-old American mom from Spokane, Washington.
After she volunteered in an orphanage in Haiti in 2005, Conner and her husband adopted a 5-year-old Haitian boy named “J.”
Conner claims the boy had attachment disorder and began a strict regimen of attachment parenting of constant surveillance in which a child must often ask for food and water. After two months, J threw a tantrum where he unintentionally hit Conner’s nose with the back of his head.
Conner says the 5-year-old’s strike was accidental, but describes it as “a domestic violence situation. Forget love. Right then, I didn’t even like J.”

J was sent to live with another family in the Midwest. Conner’s biological children adjusted seamlessly to life without their adoptive brother. But other people were puzzled. Neighbors who had seen J riding his bike asked, “Where’s your son?” When Conner answered truthfully, “I’d get the most horrified stares, so I’d keep walking. And I didn’t tell many out-of-town friends or extended family for months.”

Despite such events, the Conners were approved by local social workers to become a foster family, and in October 2013 received a 3-month-old boy as their first placement.

white people will let their white kids karate chop them in the throat and call them names in public, but a black child becomes naturally upset after you treat the kid like a grown criminal/animal and you just give them away. go it. sounds reasonable.

"i’d get the most horrified stares"geewonder why

This is why we don’t trust y’all white savior “oh check out this profile pic of me and these smiling poor brown children. You can tell I really made a difference” asses

The fact that for the most part these people are allowed to do shit like this with no legal punishment or recourse on behalf of the children being abused is mind boggling.

She literally treated that child like a dog.
Actually no, she’d probably treat a dog better.
Accidents like that happen all the time with children, and her first instinct is to stop loving the child and give it away?
I can’t.
I hope that beautiful boy is okay, and with a family that treats him like gold.

Welcome to the adoption industry where they give zero fucks about the well being of the child.

smh

hmm, yoga is kind of girly #nohomo let’s rename it so it sounds manlier and make it just for the bros for the bros only

Is this a fuckin joke? Just today, I had seen a Snickers commercial on TV that showed a man wearing exercise clothes (spandex), instructing a group of women doing aereobic exercise. A football player came in with a Snickers and handed this trainer a Snickers. The trainer ate the Snickers, and transformed into a football player. They both left the women because apparently he “wasn’t being himself” for instructing women in such a prissy, sissy sport!! LOL!!! (/sarcasm)
How utterly pathetic that “men” feel so challenged by anything to do with women and considered “feminine,” and they feel the need to assert their masculinity. LOL, yes, what a fuckin joke this is.

this is so sad
