Maintains that transracial adoptions will not significantly reduce the number of African American children in the child welfare system. Asserts that recruitment of adoptive African American parents is hampered by child welfare practices and legislative initiatives. Argues that the transracial adoption debate diverts attention from the differential treatment received by African American families. Proposes examination of knowledge, attitudes, and values of all who influence child removal and placement decisions. (KB)
