Lay off the crack and meth bro.
Ok. The first thing any intelligent person would suggest, is that your statement should say "a significant indicator of poverty is a single parent household." That is because of those two factors, it is unclear which is the causal factor. In other words, do single parent households lead to poverty or does poverty lead to single parent households. If the latter, then it would be more accurate to say poverty predicts single parent households, and not the opposite. That statement is also equally plausible. Or it is quite possible that they are mutually reinforcing phenomenon, single parent households do lead to poverty and poverty does lead to single parent households. One both creates and is created by the other.
The point being, if it is poverty that is the causal factor, then that supports my position, not yours.

To argue with a man who has renounced his reason is like giving medicine to the dead. -- Thomas Paine
He doesn't strike me as a preacher, more as an angry man, but he's spot on!!
He's both right and wrong. He's generally right that people are out there acting silly, but at the same point there is a legitimate structural poverty problem and racism still has a strong presence in the American "justice" system. Even conservatives like Rand Paul have admitted this. He's right that it has gotten better and that rioting won't change anything, but he's wrong that there aren't legitimate factors holding black people back even today. There's legitimate factors holding poor people of all races back.
Racism still exists, and that needs to be acknowledged, however the man is generally right about people acting silly over the issue. We have alot of work to do in the civil rights department, and I do believe the Michael Brown shooting was entirely unjustified, but burning down stores and looting is definitely not a way to fix the problem.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Do you think the Preachers message touches on this point?
Personally, I think these scenes help stoke those perceptions, which I firmly believe is the objective of the Jacksons and Sharptons of the world. Think how people who riot after their favorite team wins a championship are viewed.
One of the things that needs to be addressed about racism requires a change from within. Exactly, I believe, what the preacher was so passionately pleading for.
