When Beloved Icons Become Black History

For five months, foster parents Ben and Sarah FitzPatrick, gave the child a loving home but on Monday were told the baby could be taken away as early as Friday. A pair of Norfolk social workers visited their home and said because their foster baby is black, the child would be better off with African-American foster parents.

The check the FitzPatrick‘s received to take care of the foster child has also bounced, with the bank telling them there were “insufficient funds,” Sarah FitzPatrick said in all the months they have taken care for the child this was the first time any issue of color was mentioned.

A Norfolk City Council official says that his workers do not make race-based placement decisions, but they do consider “the will of the biological parents.”
