An Alabama state lawmaker, Rep. Alvin Holmes, who rocked national headlines with his perceived racist claim that few whites in the nation would ever adopt black children — and who then backed his view with a $100,000 bet — may now have to pay up, or at least shut up.
A group of adoptive parents are speaking out against a Montgomery lawmaker's claim that white parents do not adopt black or biracial children.
Alabama Rep. Alvin Holmes approached the House floor microphones during a contentious debate on an abortion bill and landed in the national spotlight by saying 99 percent of white lawmakers would want their daughters to have an abortion if pregnant by a black man.
Alabama Rep. Alvin Holmes charged Tuesday that 99 percent of his white colleagues would force their daughters to have abortions if they were impregnated by black men.
An Alabama state lawmaker says a man snatched his wallet in a Montgomery gas station and ran off with it.
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas can add another insult to the list of things "liberal elites" have attacked him for: his marriage to a white woman.
During debate on an abortion bill, Holmes said white lawmakers would want their daughters to abort mixed race grandchildren and he would bring a large sum of cash to anyone who could show him many whites who had adopted black children.
He then said he'd pay $100,000 in cash to anyone who could show him "a bunch of whites" who have actually adopted black children in the state of Alabama.
