[QUOTE=Gimmesometruth;1063419798]I have no idea, why don't you go find that out.
In the meanwhile, here is something to answer your and your brethren's previous assertions that single low income mothers stay unmarried for/because of welfare:
then they shouldn't make babies with such men. Men like that are not the norm in our society.The mothers we spoke to were quite forthcoming about the fact that the men who had
fathered their children often weren’t “worth a lifetime commitment,” given their lack of
trustworthiness, the traditional nature of their sex-role views, the potential loss of control over
parental and household decisions, and their risky and sometimes violent behavior. While mothers
If a woman finds herself married to a louse, and has already made the mistake of making babies with him, then the proper decision is indeed divorce and single parenthood, at least until a suitable mate can be found. Continuing to go from one failed relationship to anther and making babies with more and more weasel men is not the answer. Courtship, marriage, then starting a family is the correct order, not one night stand, get pregnant, discover (surprise!) that the one night or few nights stand is not a suitable mate, then becoming a single mother is not the way to happiness and prosperity.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Our society....being low income males, coming under increasing economic stress due to negative income gains, causing less marriage and other assorted symptoms. Oh wait, you want to shift the discussion to median income families....zowie.Men like that are not the norm in our society.
And again, you make this into a morality tale.....rather than economics....because your welfare queen economics argument is dead.If a woman finds herself married to a louse, and has already made the mistake of making babies with him, then the proper decision is indeed divorce and single parenthood, at least until a suitable mate can be found. Continuing to go from one failed relationship to anther and making babies with more and more weasel men is not the answer.

Half or more of the children growing up in the U.S. today will spend some, and in some cases
all, of their childhood in a single-parent family.
This report compares U.S. single-parent families with single-parent families in 16 other
high-income countries. We find that U.S. single-parent families are the worst off. They have the
highest poverty rate. They have the highest rate of no health care coverage. They face the
stingiest income support system. They lack the paid-time-off-from-work entitlements that in
comparison countries make it easier for single parents to balance caregiving and jobholding.
They must wait longer than single parents in comparison countries for early childhood education
to begin. They have a low rate of child support receipt.
U.S. single parents have both above average employment rates and above average
poverty rates. High rates of low-wage employment combined with inadequate income support
explain the paradox of high poverty despite high employment.
The comparison high-income countries are Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada,
Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden,
Switzerland, and the United Kingdom (U.K.). These countries have a per capita gross national
income above $30,000 and a population of at least several million. Except when a data source
omits some of the comparison countries, we report on all of them.
All it demonstrated was that a lot of young African Americans perceive themselves as being victims of discrimination regardless of whether they actually are or not, and this leads them to do poorly in life. There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that the discrimination you describe even exists in any meaningful sense, let alone that it plays a significant role in holding the Black Community back.
Marriage Still Safest Place For Women And Children
Married, and even divorced, women and their children experience far less domestic violence on average than women who have never been married. Suicide rates for women, and single mothers, have also increased dramatically in recent decades.
Either way you want to look at it, marriage is usually better than single motherhood. It is more economically workable, and more socially workable.
The goal should be to lift impoverished people out of the "lower quintiles," not make it more comfortable for them to languish there at tax payer expense.rather than creating greater wage gains for women and men in lower quintiles.
If African Americans are unwilling to do what is necessary to elevate themselves, they will remain in impoverished squallor. No one is going to rescue them from their own stupidity if they are too stubborn to change their own behavior for the better.
I'm sorry, but that's really all there is to say here.
You can "get with the program" like every other ethnic group in the United States has managed to do, or you can get out.
And how much of this is because of the ever-growing abortion rate that has afflicted the Black Community over the course of the last several decades?
Sky-High Abortion Rates Among Blacks And Minorities Only Getting Worse
Aborting 25% or more of all African American pregnancies really isn't the solution you're looking for here; especially given the fact that it seems to be having no meaningful impact whatsoever on actually improving the black community's standing in American society.
Frankly, I find it absolutely amazing that you expect anyone here to have sympathy for low income African Americans given how you've chosen to portray the community in your posts. You've basically reinforced every negative stereotype in the book.
You apparently believe that African Americans have the absolute right to behave like anti-social thugs, willfully fail to conform to American cultural standards, and have children they cannot support out of wedlock, with "whitey" footing the bill for the failures these behaviors inevitably result in every step of the way. You also seem to believe that anyone who so much as attempts to give the slightest bit of constructive criticism regarding these attitudes is a "racist," responsible for holding blacks back.
Again, I hate to break to you man, but the real world simply doesn't work that way.
African Americans (or persons of any race, really) who are unwilling to put forth the effort necessary to elevate themselves can rot for all I care. I am under absolutely no obligation whatsoever to help someone who refuses to help themselves.
