IMO, it's timely and relevant. These tensions seem to be increasing. With Africans now on "our" continent, age-old issues are resurfacing. We need to have these conversations so healing can take place.

White guys should worry more about all the white women MeTooing them. A lot of well off white men, now that white women are being assertive find their careers destroyed due to their history of sexual assault and harassment.

You had married men like Weinstein raping women, or guys who got married like Kavanaugh raping women.

This is not to say growing up in a single family home is ideal, but don't pretend that married homes are always healthy. If so there wouldn't be all the rape that's truly wrecking the political and media worlds.

Still, stable homes are what is best for children. Children also do best with two married parents, if you believe the research. Fidelity to the marriage covenant is also what is best for married parents.

Ironicic when the Me Too movement was created by a civil rights activist Tarana Burke who is an African American woman from the Bronx. Oddly the media will not give you the full story which started as her plight and focuse on young women of color.


But yes i hope if the Weinstein cases are true he gets jail time just as Bill Cosby has along with his image being tarnished within his industry.

I know she started it, and I know who she is. She's been credited by Alyssa Milano who spread the hashtag MeToo.

With that said, it's not young women of color who have caused media/entertainment and now politics to an extent to collapse. As people like Christine Ford come forward, these are the women who were victims and who knew powerful guys in the political establishment, and yes they are wrecking them. It's creating very rapid change in the nation.

That's not the research. A child with two married parents living in an extremely impoverished community is likely not to do well, while the child of a single parent in a well off community is likely to do well.

Conservatives attack African Americans by wanting to stereotype African American women as sluts/immoral.

What isn't discussed is mass incarceration. Many African American have incarcerated fathers and for that matter mothers. African Americans use drugs at the same rates as whites, but are much more likely to be imprisoned for it.

Now if daddy or mommy or both are in prison, how do you think the kids turn out being shipped from foster home to foster home and from relative to relative?

I previously posted in this thread links to research finding that children raised by married parents are better off for/in life than children raised by a single parent. That's THE research I was referring to if you want to go back and read it.

Correct, very true and typically the media does't tend to jump to or even put a highlight on young women of color who are also subject to alleged sexual assaults, it tend s ot fall on deaf ears until someone whom they deem is a story or pertaining to a certain demographic that it causes media to emphasize possible assaults.

Among young Americans substance abuse (drugs, liquor and cigarettes) is higher among whites than among blacks. As the condition of many lower middle class whites deteriorates so too does the incidence of divorce and out of wedlock births. Rather than pretend as if this phenomenon among black Americans is cultural note that its increasing among Hispanics and also among lower middle and poorer whites.

Parts of the Appalachia are now like inner city ghettoes in the nature of social dysfunction. But as with drug abuse the whites will be seen as "victims" while the blacks are seen as degenerates.
