The problem is fixable but first you have to stop pretending there is no problem. The gap has shrunk it can shrink more.
Is this what they talk about right before they pass out the required reading Mein Kampf?? I'm an engineer by trade and I have two degrees and I would gladly compare IQs with any white supremacist sympathizer on CD.. Let that sink in..

You have not read Sowell, Williams or the Brookings Institutes thoughts on IQ have you? You have read nothing on the subject so you simply give knee jerk responses on the subject.

Funny how someone going by the monikor Shabazz can call someone else a believer in racial supremecy.

I've read Sowell. My stance is know thy enemy... I'm pretty sure my personal library is larger than yours...

A better question is have "you" read the words of Dr. Frances Cress Welsing or Na'im Akbar???

I doubt you understand what Shabazz means or why I chose it as my screen name...

Stop being so hard on single moms. Most of them probably do a better job than my parents, who are still living in the Middle Ages. It’s better to be raised by one parent who has a grip on reality than two parents who do not.
Yes, we shouldn't demonize single-parents. My grandmother on my Mom's side was a single mother because she was widowed (my grandfather died of a heart attack at 47). My mom was already 20 and out of the house; however, my uncle was much younger than my mom and was only 8 years old. So I would be the last person to carte blanche demonize single moms.

That said, all things being equal children are going to be better served by the presence of two loving parents than by one.

Oops, so much for the narrative being pushed in this thread. You can check any other state you want with the two links above.
Well, well, well...

4 of 5 Blacks.
3 of 5 Hispanics.
1 of 3 Whites.

What should be most concerning here is the commonality that constitutes a grievous disservice to the nation's children. It's the #1 predictor of intergenerational poverty. I don't care which racial demographic is the greatest offender when all of them are clearly undesirable. The kids had no choice regarding the amount of melanin in the skin they were born with and seeing them as mere numbers in this instance only contributes to the problem. When you see people in this way, you tend to instruct and treat them in this way. That such children often rise to the level of their [low] expectations represents a social failure at the societal level. This is true whether you hate them for racist reasons or seek to excuse them for what amounts to being racist reasons. The alt-right and alt-left sides of the same coin at work in full force. The underlying failure is the lack of willingness to see individual human beings with intrinsic value and dignity.

I really don't think this out of wedlock has anything to do with "I don't need no man!" I think what is going on here, is that we have a population and culture that is swamped with cheating and infidelity. Back then, women didn't have the resources that they do now, so they had to put up with a cheating man. Today, they now have a choice and a voice. Seriously, a woman gets hurt, betrayed and possibly put in danger because her man decided he wants to be selfish, can we blame her for telling him to go to hell and then take her child and raise that child alone, because she don't want her child to get hurt too by his reckless behavior!

It's not welfare, it's this huge cheating thing that is going to bring our civilization down. People have absolutely no respect or honor for themselves or others.

It would appear that births out-of-wedlock are on the rise all over the world. Estonia and Iceland have recently reported these types of births to be 62% and 64% of their total European populations, respectively.

Perhaps with regards to modern-day lifestyles, as more women feel less dependent upon males as primary bread winners and as more modern-day thinkers move further away from traditional religion, a spike in these types of "illegitimate" births might be expected.

Besides, the typical black family unit has always been over stressed from outside forces. From the selling of family members during slavery to racial discrimination in education and employment, a successful black family unit has always been a formidable uphill challenge.

The black family is damn near DEAD!! Trust me when I say that Iím tired of trying to make black folks see the importance of the nuclear family.

Itís an uphill battle. But youíre right that this seems to be a societal problem in that people are moving away from traditional marriage overall because of a more secular populace.

That said, I wish Blacks were a whole lot less religious than we are. Itís a paradox I know, but I think itís had a negative impact on the community in the long term.
