A photo of a white dad taking out his black daughter’s braids has created a stir in the media.
The photo is of Frank Somerville, a reporter on Oakland station KTVU who shared the photo of himself taking out the braids of his adopted daughter, who just happens to be black.
In the Facebook post, he said: “So for those of you who think tv can be glamorous, this is how i spent my morning, learning how to take out my daughter’s braids. It takes a long time and a lot of patience!”
It is important to acknowledge that what Mr. Somerville is and was doing is very commendable. As a parent, I recognize that taking on the care of a child is not an easy task and that becomes even more complex when that child is not your own, biologically.
