Culture clash

image: Departments headerIn reference to "Native Chicago" (February/00): As an attorney crusading for color-blind governmental policies, I was startled at the suggestion that the government would assign children to foster homes based upon their race. I consider such government action to violate the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. My own view is that a loving family is more important than one of the "correct" racial group, and that any parent can make the effort to connect a child to his own culture.
