White mother sues sperm bank after she gave birth to mixed-race baby

Even simple tasks have become more complicated because Payton is mixed-race, the lawsuit says. 

'Payton has hair typical of an African American girl. To get a decent cut, Jennifer must travel to a black neighborhood, far from where she lives, where she is obviously different in appearance, and not overtly welcome,’ according to the lawsuit.

Ms Cramblett says she grew up in Scio, Ohio - population 762 - and didn’t meet a black person until she attended college. She currently lives in Uniontown, population 2,802, and fears Payton will be the only non-white child in class when the time comes for her to attend school.

Ms Cramblett says her family has difficulty accepting the fact that she is gay and encourage her to hide her sexual orientation when she is around them. 

She says no matter what she does, Payton cannot hide her race - nor should she have to. 

SOMEONE PLEASE TAKE THIS CHILD AWAY AND GIVE HER TO SOMEONE WHO WON’T TREAT HER LIKE A BURDEN FOR BEING BROWN LIIIIIIIKE

they’re talking about “wrongful birth” and shit, how’s this child gonna feel when she gets old enough to look herself up online and realizes her parents wanted a white child?

Do you ever get rly pissed because the hunger games films could’ve told such a deep story with themes that reflect our own society’s oppressive systems

but instead they whitewashed the main leads, erased their disabilities, and pretty much romanticized the violence

The degree to which THG movies play into exactly the things the story condemns will never not be staggering to me
