Why do you rarely see black people adopt white children?

I want people's opinions on the subject.

From what I've seen,I personally have never seen a person/couple of another race, other than White, who have adopted a child outside their own race. I'm sure it happens, but it must be extremely rare. You always see African and Asian babies getting adopted by white couples but i never really see it the other way around.I understand this is a touchy subject and I am not racist by any means (anytime someone talks about race they are automatically called racist) . I am just wondering why we don't see this often.

Because there aren't "white" kids from other countries being adopted.

I rarely see black people adopt period. They must be really fertile.

The same reason why it's acceptable for women to wear men's clothes, but not the other way around (shrugs)

I've only known two black families adopt.  I've known several foster families.  Maybe they adopt their race because they feel that few will.  How many white couples adopt black children?

Um, Russians are white. I used to be friends with a lady with an adopted Russian daughter.

There are less white kids available for adoption world wide.

I never thought about that.  Makes me wonder as well.

White babies are harder to get.
