Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron has adopted an African-American baby boy named Jackson, reports People Magazine.

The 36-year-old South African-born actress, who has been a vocal advocate of adoption, was quoted as saying it is a disservice not to care for the countless unwanted children in the world.  Theron told German In Touch Magazine last year that she would consider adopting a child even though she is a single woman, “I want a baby. If it would happen tomorrow, I would be very happy.'”

Theron joins the ranks of other Hollywood Moms who have adopted Black children, such as Angelina Jolie, Madonna, Sandra Bullock and Mariska Hargitay.  Clearly these actresses have no qualms about adopting transracially, yet there are some deep divides by many who say that it is a form of racial genocide.

When actress Sandra Bullock appeared on the cover of People magazine with her newly adopted African-American baby nearly two years ago, tongues were wagging among folks in the Black community who opposed the move, along with negative blogs aimed at that readership.

In spite of the negative hoopla around transracial adoption, consider this: There once was a child of a Black man and White woman.  The interracial couple breaks up, but the child remains with his mother who then marries an Indonesian man.  The child is then adopted by the woman’s Indonesian husband who immerses the child, age 6 at the time, in his culture.  The child then grows up to be a man who can speak for all of the people who comprises the mosaic that is America.  Who do you have? President Barack Obama!

Something to think about, isn’t it?
