    I must be public enemy number 1 as far as Steve King is concerned. I am a white woman who never had a biological child. I did adopt an Asian baby who was born in Vietnam with a cleft lip and palate and abandoned at the hospital. That was 24 years ago and now she’s a healthy happy young woman, a college graduate and productive member of society. But according to King, I failed not only in not increasing America’s white stock, but in bringing a non-white individual into the country to tilt the scales away from the ideal of a white society and potentially dilute the gene pool. For some reason, though, I’m not ashamed of myself.
