Host Karen Grigsby Bates speaks to Rev. Ken Hutcherson, pastor of the Antioch Bible Church in Redmond, Wash., about his objection to the financial market for adopted babies. The price for adopting a black baby is only a fraction of that for adopting a white one. Rev. Hutcherson sees this as discrimination towards white parents and offensive towards blacks.
