Oscar winning actress Sandra Bullock covers the latest issue of People magazine proudly showing her off new baby boy, a 3 1/2 month African American child she recently adopted. People also reveals Bullock filed for divorce from cheating husband Jesse James.

During her time in New Orleans in support of post-Katrina efforts, reports state Bullock instantly fell in love with the child who needed a good home. Bullock says, “He’s just perfect, I can’t even describe him any other way.”

According to People, Sandra kept the adoption a secret for five months stating she wouldn’t even let her friends come to her home. Bullock’s adoption of an African American child distinguishes her from celebrities like Angelina Jolie and Madonna who have adopted African children.

These stars are often criticized for adopting black children claiming they are using it for publicity. Some are also critical of this adoption trend claiming black children shouldn’t be in white homes.

Do you think Sandra Bullock is using her new black son to curtail the negative publicity on her husband’s scandalous affairs?

Or is Bullock like many adoptive mothers who simply want to give children in need a happy home?

    Wealthy celebrities who adopt African babies— whether out of
    the goodness of their heart, as a political statement, for use as fashion
    accessories, or to generate positive publicity. And in many ways, we should not
    be surprised, because this is America. This is a society that still equates
    blackness with inferiority and criminality, even if the president is black.
    Sandra action is commendable as long as she would not have buyer’s regret when
    she confronted with problem after the child grew up.
