I hope she does not raise him as a white male because he is NOT and I hope she can teach him how to be a strong black male without turning him into an oreo. Barack Obama would be a great mentor for the child.

That beautiful little boy just went from a very uncertain life to winning the lottery. How can you see anything negative in that?

How in the world do you raise a child as a black male or even a white male...you just raise your children!!!...I am confused by your statement.

Your confused because you are a clueless MORON!! To be raised black means learning at a young age that white devils will hate you and want to kill you on sight.

Sandra Bullock adopted this baby who needed a loving home. The baby is way to young to realize that he won the lottery.

I guess you don't know but there is a difference in white culture vs black culture which is not negative, but one must raise black children a little different on the cultural things. You want to raise a black child to have a good self esteem about himself, because society tells black children that they are dumb, stupid, criminals and that they don't matter, so it is important that a parent be aware of this. Also a black child...especially a male must be raised on how to handle racism, because as long as he stays black he/she will definately experience racism at the hands of the cops or some other racist. That is a sure bet. Can you say these things about white children? Hell to the no!!! So black children must be taught certain things in order to survive in this wicked racist world. You would not know that being that you are white and this is your world.

From your statement it is apparent that you have been raised in a white world with blinders on. I will attempt to tell you however you probably won't believe me because you have grown up in a white world and have not had to experience any hardships because of your color.

Not if she raises him to be white. She will do more harm than help. She can't raise an oreo. She must teach him to love himself and his culture if he is to be successful.

This kid will never know poverty and will be raised as a cultured educated and intelligent elitist. Eventually this kid will become a hipster and move to Williamsburg or somewhere in Soho.... where he will wear the tightest pants in history of Williamsburg causing him to have a blood clot in his brain and eventually start a Punk Rock band comprised of other rich hipsters which in reality is not punk at all....... with time he will marry a white women just like his mother Sandra Bullock.

Excuse me but weren't you the one that called me a clueless moron? I guess in all that "raising" you were not told to treat others with respect and maybe they will treat you with respect.

Oh...and trust me...I know that racism exists...these forums prove it. It's sad to me to know that not much has changed in this world. I simply wondered what you did differently to raise a black child vs. a white child.

If people have to go through all that to raise a kid of another race/ethnicity then I don't know why they bother.

I hear what you're saying but the are lots of Black kids that were raised by white parents. Hopefully, this kid will have plenty of Black friends and influences. I hope he's not raised to be an "Oreo".

Why do you think that? He might have friends from all different backgrounds. That's my guess.

Yep. An Oreo to mentor an oreo. By the way. Where was Obamas mentor growing up?
