    Basically a complete overhaul of black culture itself from the ground up at this point. It's not just an issue of men being uncommitted. Women don't even really expect them to be anymore.

    There's no real incentive to prevent pregnancies out of wedlock either, as many low income minority women basically regard children (and the Welfare payments that follow) as being their meal ticket.
    Funny thing is that slapping the kid would be a crime, where I live.

    Nonsense. These are young kids. I seriously doubt they think that far ahead.

    I'm kinda torn on this matter.

    In a way it is nice to see a mother trying to get her son under control in such a condition. But, I am curious how much went wrong to get that kid to the point where he acted as he did. The family unit being one factor to consider, but there are so many other factors to consider as well from education level, to aptitude, to economics, to social environment, to expectation, etc.

    Somewhere along the lines in the effort for civil rights and protesting injustice, arguably today's leadership forgot to include the basic messages of peace and purposeful intentions and doing a much better job at handling those that want to hijack the process for their own short lived gain. At this point I would argue those with honorable intentions are in the extreme minority when it comes to a group of people who simply want to harm whoever they can at the first opportunity.

    And we have so many examples of what should be peaceful protest overshadowed by the general will of mob mentality. This example, the Michael Brown riots, 2009 Oakland riots, 2001 Cincinnati riots, even going back to the Rodney King riots we have too many illustrations where the will of the majority of black people is to cause harm as an answer to injustice (or simply use one as an excuse.)

    This is why I harp on Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton so much. It seems them and other present leadership is squandering the real intentions of the original civil rights movement. Sorry to sort of hijack the thread but when I see that mom hitting her son I cannot help but wonder why we go so far off course, and I see little other option but to blame those really leading that community even if self appointed for all the wrong reasons.

    Black women already have more abortions than any other demographic in the country.



    They also have the highest single motherhood rate of any demographic in the country even in spite of that fact.



    Try again.

    A) That's really not a mark in their favor. It would simply go to show why proper parenting (which the black community lacks, at the moment) is so important.

    B) It's almost a cultural expectation at this point. There's no real "thinking" or "planning" involved. It's simply the "circle of life" for many lower income minority groups in the modern United States.

    Have sex, have a baby, get paid for it. Have sex, realize you don't want a baby (or already have more than you want), have an abortion.

    After all, most of them have basically been brought up believing that they'll never do any better than that anyway.

    fwiw, a father can be in a kid's life w/o being married to the mom.
    I may be wrong.

    Of course, this is true. But I think it's well understood the fact so many aren't, is a problem.

It is not exactly easy (or even desirable) to re-marry when you have children from a prior marriage.
    I don't assume. It's FACT that the majority of single mom's in these areas are NOT widows.

    Yeah, republicrats find them selves in untenable positions, due to their inconsistent (illogical?) politics. Abstinance only education, coupled with anti birth control or abortion, combined with a desire to remove social safety nets...paints a nasty picture, really.

    I had sex for the first time when I was 19, and yes, I was thinking that far ahead. I did not want a baby. I viewed having a child as tantamount to epic failure, the crumbling of all of my dreams, the ultimate game over.


    And amazingly, I managed NOT to father any children with any of my partners till AFTER I got married, years later, when I was 29.
