Democrats are so insane that there’s no reasoning with them.
But even they can’t ignore the words of the first black President.
An old speech by Barack Obama told a shocking truth about the black crime rate.
One of the most startling inequalities between blacks and any other ethnicities in America is the number of black children in America who grow up without having a father present in their lives.
Black Lives Matter says that they want to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families.”
That’s one of the most problematic statements that could be made.
Science and studies are clear. Children, as a general rule, do best when they are raised by their biological mother and father and that should be encouraged.
In America, 68% of children from 2013-2015 were living in a two-parent household but only 37% of black children have two parents.
In 2008, Barack Obama spoke about the terrible tragedy it was that many black children grow up without a father present.
“You and I know how true this is in the African-American community.” Obama said. “We know that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households, a number that has doubled — doubled — since we were children. We know the statistics — that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it.”
Obama went on to say that many children of that generation would be lost to “poverty or violence or addiction” but that more social programs and police officers weren’t enough to solve the problem.
“Yes, we need more cops on the street.” Obama continued. “Yes, we need fewer guns in the hands of people who shouldn’t have them. Yes, we need more money for our schools, and more outstanding teachers in the classroom, and more after-school programs for our children. Yes, we need more jobs and more job training and more opportunity in our communities.”
Obama said that the black community needed fathers that were present for their children.
He knew the pain of not having a father only too well. His own father left when he was two years old and he only met him once after that.
Barack Obama said that he wanted to break the cycle and be a present father and he was absolutely right back then, when he encouraged men to embrace fatherhood.
Tearing down Confederate statues isn’t enough to solve the problems facing the black community; racism and historic injustices aren’t enough to explain the inequality between races in America.
If America really wants to solve the problem, we need to look at the hard numbers and statistical analysis to have a complete understanding of the problem.
