Treka Engleman, a 32-year-old public school teacher from Cincinnati, Ohio, is a foster mum who has adopted three white children. However, she has faced massive trolling for this particular act. They criticize her choice to adopt white kids as a form of betrayal to the black community. The backlash is based on the idea that there are a lot of black kids that need homes. This is quite unfortunate as all kids deserve a chance to get home regardless of their race. Are we limited by race when seeking to expand families, as in Treka Engleman? Are the trolls depicting some form of double standards? What do you think?
