- Finished comic some time tomorrow morning. Kinda unsure if I can still do the five times a week thing. Need to sort it out, but check again tomorrow.
I should also probably point out that Aaliyah's statement about Black children not being adopted isn't quite true, while Black children are overrepresented in the foster care system, their adoption rate has been improving over the past five years with the largest obstacle being that the majority of prospective adoptive parents are White. Eith because of a bias of adoptive parents towards children of a similar ethnic background or the disproportionate number of White parents who have a specific preference not to adopt a Black child, less interest seems to be expressed towards Black children. Other factors possibly contribute to this such as the socio-economic barriers keeping many Black people in more difficult financial situations where they would be unable to raise a child, and opinions about adopting children across racial and ethnic lines vary (but some of this stuff I'll be getting to in upcoming comics).
