Watching a movie

I am watching a movie called The Color of Love. It is about a white woman who had a baby by a black man who is a basketball player. The question is should the father get custody of the boy because he look black. In the end the supreme court gave custody to the mother.

  • Custody should be given by default, to the mother. Barring any signs of her being unstable or unsuitable.

  • The child should go to the parent that is the best. Not because he looks more like one of the parents.

  • I've seen that. This was a real Canada. But in real life the baby went to the father and stayed so he could assimilate with his black roots. The mother got completely railroaded in court.
