White Woman Says Her African Daughters Experienced ‘Worst Racism’ From Blacks

A writer for the Federalist, a conservative publication that uses tags in its stories like “Black Crime” to catalog incidents, and defended Roy Moore dating teenagers, wrote a story about her African adopted daughters not being Black girls, but Americans.


In her commentary, Jenni White used the death of McKenzie Adams, a fourth-grade student who committed suicide after she was bullied in a predominantly white school for her skin color and for associating with white students, to justify having raised her daughters, Barbara and Betty, without teaching them about African-American culture.

“Why would I raise them to identify with a specific race as if being members of the
human race wasn’t enough” White writes.

The title of her article is “The Worst Racism My Children Have Experienced Came From Black Peers.”

“Yes, my daughters are from Africa, and they communicate with their family there regularly, but once we adopted them and landed in America together, they became Americans. Not African-Americans, not Black girls, but girls who would grow up in a nation where they were afforded the opportunity to become anything they wanted to become.”

She writes about a conversation with her Black pastor 12 years ago, who encouraged her to immerse the girls, then ages 4 and 9, in their culture and find ways to introduce them to the Black experience in America.

She replied to the pastor that her family doesn’t “see color.”

White claims to be a staunch supporter of Martin Luther King Jr., and follows Blexit (the movement Kanye West is a fan of), or “Black exit” from the Democratic Party, that shares her views about America as a whole and the accusations against liberal Blacks as living in “permanent victimhood.” She is the education director for Reclaim Oklahoma Parent Empowerment and a former public school science teacher.

White doesn’t acknowledge the system of oppression racism that her daughters, now ages 16 and 21, will encounter if they haven’t already. They are not shielded because they grew up with a white family that doesn’t “see color.”

A CNN/ORC poll found that a broad majority of whites (81%) in the United States say Black people have as good a chance as white people to get any kind of job for which they are qualified. But 54% of Blacks say they don’t have as good a chance as whites to get a job they’re qualified for.

Additionally, three-quarters of Blacks say police are more likely to use force against a Black person than a white person, while a majority of whites (56%) say race doesn’t matter. A majority of whites (53%) say they are confident police treat whites and Blacks equally in the United States vs. a majority of Blacks (57%) who say they are “not confident at all.”

White chooses to believe it’s the Black community’s fault for McKenzie’s death the very people who have had to grapple with identity in a country that brought their ancestors here as slaves but continues to reject them after hundreds of years, not the school for not addressing the bullying.

Instead of helping her daughters (one of whom temporarily returned to Africa to live with her brother because of emotional struggles) learn about the African-American experience, she calls Black people racist instead of her ancestors.
