The money she will have spent on the adoption and the money she will spend on the child could have gone to help so many more children in Malawi. But of course then she wouldn't have a cute black child to show off.
Pool is an adoptee herself, an Eritrean girl adopted by an Anglo-American academic couple. Does that make any difference WRT her critique? Would the Material Girl in fact have done more good sponsoring an orphanage in Malawi rather than picking one child to become her own? So many questions, and I don't have answers for any of them. Rachel reluctantly sides with Madonna on this one; me, I don't know.
