A white face goes with a white mind. Occasionally a black face goes with a white mind. Very seldom a white face will have a black mind.

The best mantra for white parents who adopt black children. You gotta get into her mind, his mind, imagination, hurts and hopes, even move out of the white mind and let privilege go, to be a good parent, to earn the child's trust and teach the child when not to trust.
