As a group black and hispanic kids have a greater percentage of the poor. That's what single parenthood does.
Obviously there was a need for welfare programs, else they would not have been implemented.
The unemployment rate doesn't say much. During slavery it was probably close to zero for blacks. But what's the point?!

In my view it has very little to do with single parenthood, but with the inherited lack of social standing, privileges, wealth etc.

Yet in the last tweet that was labeled "racist" there was no mention of skin color. Biden did mention skin color. This is a proof that either a) people seriously don't know the true definition of racist/racism and b) that one who blatantly does make a racist comment, can get away with it because they are not Trump.

Generally speaking, neither his party nor the Republicans nor the conservatives treated blacks well. Treating minorities like second-class citizens was unfortunately considered normal by many people in the past, regardless of party affiliation.

And today minorities, especially blacks, definitely prefer the Democratic party. That's also why the first black president was a Democrat, not a Republican.
And I think Trump has done a great job making sure it will stay that way for a long time to come.
I have no doubt black people will stay Democrat. Has nothing to do with racism though, outside some of them have fallen for Democrat party's race baiting. We know it has nothing to do with racism precisely because they voted for the Democrat party prior to the party giving up segregation.

GOP was founded as the abolition of slavery party and pushed for civil rights legislation following the civil war and the civil rights legislation in the 50s and 60s that LBJ finally went along with to keep his party viable.

Wrong. During the 1930s, there was a welfare program started by the federal government. Provided indigent mothers some assistance in the case of their husband leaving, dying, etc. Because it was doled out at the state level, alot of Black people were shut out of that program. White women were the one's most likely to get it. Blacks had a harder time getting those handouts than Whites. Whites were still more likely to be wealthier and richer than Blacks. White out of wedlock birth rates were still much lower than Black out of wedlock birth rates.

And that employment statistic, you might want to look a bit closer at it. Before cotton farming became heavily mechanized, sharecropping was a major occupation among many Blacks in the South. Because of the way sharecropping worked, you would basically be tied to the land. Like one many in the miniseries Roots said "It doesn't matter who works the land, what matters is who owns it". Getting charged for feed, equipment, etc, it's a good way of keeping sharecroppers in a state of debt. You're "employed", but you're basically in a state of perpetual poverty.

That is a stereotype that ALL white liberals seem to have of minority kids. But it is one that is never spoken out loud.

Liberals are the true racists.

It's a common view among many whites and even Asians, regardless of political leaning.

Actually, it's a stereotype that both liberals and conservatives have about Black people. I've seen it for myself. I grew up in a predominantly White, Republican county in Georgia. I've been around conservatives who looked down on Black people. My experiences make me very skeptical of what you have to say.

There are also some Hispanic individuals, some Native Americans, and some Black immigrants who look down on Black Americans. Black Americans have been looked down on for a very long time.
