A. In Texas

In Texas, the issue of disproportionality and disparities is complex. DFPS data from FY 2018 shows:

After removal, African American children are less likely to reunify and, if reunification is ruled out, wait longer for adoption. African American children are overrepresented in foster care, Anglo children are proportionately represented, and Hispanic children are underrepresented. However, most Hispanic children wait longer than White children to be adopted.[80]
