Resurrection of the Rainbow Tribe

Adopting babies of different races is all the rage these days. Angelina Jolie and Madonna are have traversed the Earth in search of additions to their growing families. They may be controversial. They maybe trend setters by today's standard but they hardly invented the practice.

The great Josephine Baker adopted 13 children from a multiplicity of races and nationalities fifty years ago. She started adopting what she called her "rainbow tribe" with her fourth husband while living in France. Baker continued to performed despite failing health right up till her death to support her large family.
If Madonna can afford to adopt and the children will be loved and out of danger, then what's the big deal?
