OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Associated Press discussed race with six white couples who have adopted or have custody of Black children.
The topic has more layers since George Floyd’s death has inspired protests and led to changes in police procedures.
These parents are trying to help their children understand race in America while getting an accelerated course themselves.
As they struggle, they know that helping their children has prepared them to help the white people around them better understand Black people and their challenges.
They say white people are finally starting to listen, but agree that words won’t be enough.
