Black Kids & No Father! Black Mothers your RESPONSIBLE

lozadothCA345HAAchrisbrown rihannablackfamily
According to government statistics, 72 percent of African-American children are born to unmarried Mothers.

According to an article written by Kirsten West Savali, she states the following:
This is not just an opinion. According to Children-our investment.org, homes without fathers ultimately affect children in numerous tragic ways:
63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes
90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes
85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes
*80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes
**75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes
**85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes.

The following information I obtained from the Domestic Violence Statistics. Those numbers need to make sense and the effects are below, which puts an additional economic burden on society.

*African-Americans, especially African-American Women, suffer deadly violence from family members at rates decidedly higher than for other racial groups in the United States. However, it is observed that research concerning family violence among African-Americans is inadequate.

Overall, African-Americans were victimized by intimate partners a significantly higher rates than persons of any other race between 1993 and 1998. Black females experienced intimate partner violence at a rate 35% higher than that of white females, and about 22 times the rate of women of other races. Black males experienced intimate partner violence at a rate about 62% higher than that of white males and about 22 times the rate of men of other races.

African-American women experience significantly more domestic violence than White women in the age group of 20-24. Generally, Black women experience similar levels of intimate partner victimization in all other age categories as compared to White women, but experience slightly more domestic violence. (Estimates are provided from the National Crime Victimization Survey, which defines an intimate partner as a current or former spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend. Violent acts include murder, rape, sexual assault, robbery, aggravated assault, and simple assault.)

Approximately 40% of Black women report coercive contact of a sexual nature by age 18.

The number one killer of African-American women ages 15 to 34 is homicide at the hands of a current or former intimate partner.

The leading causes of incarceration for African-American males

** 1.The leading cause of incarceration of an African-American male is a non-violent drug offense. http://www.drugwarfacts.org/cms/node/64 1.Between 1985 and 1995 the American prison population of drug offenders increased from 38,900 to 224,900 with African-American males at the top (King 166).

2.Person crimes
3.Property crimes

The greatest reality is the role BLACK WOMEN play in this choice making epidemic(abuse,rape cases excluded). Nobody talks about the amount of BLACK WOMEN that will not allow the father to see their child. Especially if they don’t pay child support or are behind on the child support. Planned pregnancy is another contributing factor, you are making the choice to have a child out-of-wedlock and choosing not to get married. Let’s talk about the women with childhood issues that have never dealt with them and display them upon their children, and the relationships they are in. The effects of RAPE & Abuse contributes to every statistic listed above. Black Mothers do abuse their children or allow those boyfriends/girlfriends to also abuse. Mental illness.
Black TALK: Welfare Unmarried women with children get far more aid than married women, or women who are required to include their child’s father’s income/child support in their applications. Over time, this has created a culture in which it is not desirable to women to keep their children’s fathers around, and one in which men do not feel guilty for relinquishing responsibility for their children. These women raise daughters who do not feel any stigma or anxiety about having children young and out-of-wedlock. They raise sons who do not feel that a father has an important place in a child’s life.

BLACK Church part of the problem. Greatest supporters are black single women.

POSITIVE IMPACTS: Changing the drug laws. Creating jobs that pay more. Education and Intervention Programs, Summer jobs for the youth, help build FAMILIES.Community Involvment.

Richard Wright’s “Native Son” is a great read, and gives a great outlook on being a black male, raised by a single mother.

Sending Love for a better country
