They’re All-White

I was asked to find out why visitation between a set of siblings in foster care and their biological parents ended. I call the social worker to inquire.

She says, “The bio parents were acting inappropriate. They sneaked gifts to the kids. They gave their daughter a book about a depressed mother who kills all of her children. They gave their son a Ouija board. One time the father came to a visit wearing bright red contact lens and fangs. It wasn’t Halloween. The bio parents show up to their son’s football games. The mother runs along the sideline and yells for him to take off his helmet so she can see him.”

I was telling a coworker about it. She says, “They’re white, right? That’s a crazy white family story right there.”

She’s right.
