Did the African guy have Danny Aiello creeping around his bedroom door as well?

I like how the AP headline actually says "African girl", as opposed to the more informative "Malawi girl". Do you think if this were a Polish girl, the headline would use the term "Eastern European girl"?

Malawi girl? You're ignorance is outrageous. We need to know if she's from the Nyanja tribe or the Chewa, and if so is she from the majority Phiri or Banda clans? Honestly, how do you manage to breath on your own?

The 19th century had the Earl of Elgin and the 21st has Angelina and Madonna. The third world exists to be looted by the well-heeled.

As much as a I dislike Madonna and think she is a complete tool, if this guy wanted to take care of his daughter so much, where the hell has he been for the last four years while she was in an orphanage?

Most people wouldn't have a damned clue where Malawi is. However, they're more likely to have a general knowledge that Africa exists, and hopefully have heard about it from Disney films and whatnot. I wouldn't put money on certain people actually finding Africa on a map though.

So, they guy from the slums of Africa who has never seen the kid and left her in an orphanage suddenly decides he wants to raise the kid only when a rich white woman comes along who can grant this child's every wish?

someone has a small penis.

The father ought not be allowed to say no.
 
2009-05-03 03:08:56 AM  
And the grandmother & uncles, who had no problem leaving the girl in an orphanage until she was old enough to be put to work. I wonder if they thought that blocking this would lead to money gifts from Madonna.

"Mercy, she is a Malawian - so (I) need her to grow as a Malawian as well with our culture."

Proud of their own heritage? Doesn't want their child to grow up like an American? I didn't think non-Americans like this existed in the world. Whodathunkit.

Pretty sure most refer to us as American, right?

And I would not be shocked to see a headline with the word European in it.

Way to race bait.

The father just realized his kid's famous. There could even be some idiotic interviewer out there in the country for his kid, and that's more than Madonna would give him.

Here's a serious question: Africa is full of kids with NO parents, both either dead or dying. Why not pick one of those? Why is Madge just so bad at this? She needs better surrogates to pick the children for her. If you're going to do a publicity stunt, let your publicists do their jobs.

You idiot. America is a Country...Africa is a CONTINENT. You and Sarah Palin can both stay after class.

All the residents of North America, Central America, Latin America, South America etc would like to have a word.

Don't think it's race baiting. When somebody says "American", they are referring to a US citizen, not to somebody that lives on the North American continent. Do you refer to Canadians as Americans? Good luck getting that by Fox News.
I understand that news needs to be dumbed down for most people. Hell, the last president referred to Africa as a country. But maybe, just maybe, if somebody said "Malawi girl on the African continent" somebody might actually pick up a book and learn about said country. Just sayin'
 
2009-05-03 09:20:06 AM  
Sorry, the father has never seen the girl before or made any attempt to get her out of an orphanage. He's already surrendered any right to have any say in her life. (If he even is the father, which isn't confirmed.)
 
2009-05-03 09:49:17 AM  
EXCELLENT headline.

So the guy owned up to having the kid and wants to take care of it? Wow, black baby daddies are a lot different down there than up here.

Angelina Jolie's 'orphan' has relatives too.

Adopted that girl who's mom, dad & grandma(mom's mom) are still alive. Grandma was using the orphanage as a holding pen, after her daughter left the grandkid in her care.

No, you can't have an African baby. No yours.

It really says something about you if a man living in a hut made of cowshht in the middle of a desert with an annual income of 35 cents won't let you adopt his kid because he can still give her a better life than you can.

As long as we're all being truthful, I think it only pertinent to tell everyone that when I was a young teen, I beat my dick like it owed me money to the "Open Your Heart" video about 2-3x a week.

reveal101: As much as a I dislike Madonna and think she is a complete tool, if this guy wanted to take care of his daughter so much, where the hell has he been for the last four years while she was in an orphanage?

I think these "parents" are fed lines by reporters so that they can get a story. IIRC, the same thing happened with the last kid Madonna adopted--she already had him, and suddenly the relatives of the kid were all over the news, making all these erudite comments as to why she shouldn't have been allowed to adopt.

I also heard some other interview with this father, and the stuff he was saying sounded like it was regurgitated from the mouth of some child welfare worker.

For some reason as a kid I was always immensely turned on by the video for Cherish.

Ah, so we're genetically bonded to our culture. Got it.
