Skip to comments.Blacks struggle with 72 percent unwed mothers rate
Posted on 11/06/2010 10:53:29 AM PDT by MamaDearest
Snips from Excerpt only website: Seventy-two percent of black babies are born to unmarried mothers today, according to government statistics. This number is inseparable from the work of Carroll, an obstetrician who has dedicated her 40-year career to helping black women.
The black community's 72 percent rate eclipses that of most other groups: 17 percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics and 66 percent of Native Americans were born to unwed mothers in 2008, the most recent year for which government figures are available. The rate for the overall U.S. population was 41 percent.

The solution is obvious. More welfare to care for these unfortunates.
What was DPM’s prediction?
Most of these kids grow up not knowing who their brothers and sisters are. Then comes along the next generation of inbred kids that struggle with all sorts of related problems. The AA community is destroying itself.
Thank Lyndon Johnson and the Great Society.Honorable Mention to Democrats and their welfare payments for votes scheme.
Somewhere, LBJ is smiling.
IMHO, the continuation and expansion of these programs proves the Democrat party is still teh party of racism. Different tactics, same story.
You get more of what you subsidize. God forbid we condemn black “culture.”
What is the percentage of black babies aborted?.. beyond the 72% figure?...
You're just a mean-spirited Republican. (You actually expect these people to be responsible for anything?)
The future of America if the Left has its way.
I don’t know if he can smile in hell,but Lyndon sure must have hated black people to inflict the Great Society on them.
That's how I see it too. I was working in the hood this summer and heard a woman say that her son has 12 kids. At first I thought "wow, more power to them", but the more I thought about it, the more I think that they're not all from the same mother.
one in three whites and over half of latinos
this is nothing but a recipe for disaster
40 year career eh? Yep, it’s been about that long since the Supremes sang “Love Child”.
If you’re sick of hearing this song on the oldies station, take a listen to this version:
Morality isn’t the only thing that’s gone downhill in the past 40 years.
“The solution is obvious. More welfare to care for these unfortunates.”
And I would add that they must vote for more Democrats. Oops, I guess they have maxed out on that one.
It’a a brilliant scheme, actually. ‘Grow your own’ voters! The Dems are farming them.
Our neverending appreciation to LBJ and the Dumbokrats.
From what I hear there aren’t a whole lot of smiles going around in hell.
I seem to remember reading that in the early 20th century blacks actually had a lower rate of out-of-wedlock births than whites.
One of the best articles regarding our “helpful” welfare society is: The Dangerous Samaritans:
How Our Poverty Programs Injured the Poor
The AA community is destroying themselves and bringing down our whole society with it.....somebody has to pay for all that medical care to birth the baby, day care, pre-school, free breakfasts/lunches at school, after school programs...and then on to police costs, court costs, jail costs. Not to mention the effects of crime on the useful members of society. I have heard that, before LBJ starting paying 16 year olds to have babies, that the illigetimacy rate amongst both whites and blacks was about 11%....the road to he77 is paved with good intentions....
Ding, ding, ding, we have a thread winnah!
Precisely the objective of "redistribution of wealth."
Many multiple child homes these days seem to be products of single parents with step-brothers and step-sisters of multiple absent fathers.
Wow, how high can it go?
I recall reading in the 60’s the rate for whites was 2.5% and 25% for blacks, ten times the rate for whites.
And of course, that was several years before Roe v. Wade and the pill becoming available to unmarried women.
So just imagine what today’s “real” rate must be.
It all amounts to genocide. And to add insult to injury, the ‘victims’ vote for the ones who did this to them by over 90%.
God fearing families
Great society programs
Missing fathers 72% of the time...
Millions of Black babies aborted...
A large percentage of the nation’s potential Black populace, missing...
Lyndon, Jessie, Al..., great job. /s
And yet, the Democrat party gets praise for bringing this on Black Americans.
What a disgrace.
The time of hear was around tax time (January-April) and we noticed a curious thing. While we were there, it seemed like 50 or more of the town's residents were filing through to present a 'check' to him...he'd trot upstairs and come back with a few thousand dollars cash in trade...average? I'd say around $5,000.....what were they? They were EITC checks - refunded 'tax' money.......Now it is all electronic. In my state, the EBT card has a green leafy background with two Peaches on it. In the last few years, there has not been even one time, I have not seen some brood mare whip one of these out for a cart full of booty....NOT ONCE....me? I'm just relegated to giving the cashier something she's not used to dealing with - cash....
Married to the government.
I was a little surprised that Ass Press allowed an item to be released that was somewhat critical of single parenthood *...gasp!!!...* and actually gave statistics. *...oh noes.....*. Looks like they are wandering a little bit off the Leftist plantation. I'm sure they'll be back soon, however, racked with fresh Leftist guilt for their ideological heresy in this article.
Michelle should address this issue, instead of child obesity. It’s far more significant.
You nailed it, Gaffer!
You know, I REALLY try not to profile people racially, I REALLY do. Anyone would have to admit to themselves that it is becoming very difficult not to when we keep seeing facts like this.
If I were black, I would be embarrassed of my race.
The goal is to reach 100%, for those not aborted.
My ex’s aunt had 9 kids by at least 5 different dads. She was on welfare, then when her kids got old enough to pop their own kids, they too were on welfare. They all lived under the same roof and still do today.
Destroy marriage, destroy the concept of masculinity, destroy the family and the state becomes Big Daddy....
This is an issue that overwhelms common sense. Most of these kids aren’t accidents. The mother deliberately gets pregnant. They have nothing in their lives- and there’s no chance things are gonna get better. Along comes a boyfriend- who’s an even bigger loser. The only “accomplishment” they’re capable of is fathering a child. So they blackmail the mother. Have my kid, or I’m gone. Of course, once the baby is born, it’s only a matter of time before they are gone. Then along comes the next boyfriend. who not only wants to demonstrate his ability to father a child, but is also insulted by the presence of another man’s child. So the cycle just continues. And by the time the mother finally catches on, it’s too late.
Take down the damn bird feeders!
So is John C. Calhoun, another Democrat.
Even Keynes understood the following basic law of economics.
Activity which the government funds will increase.
Activity which the government taxes will decrease.
But the DemonRATS and RINOs don’t get it.
This problem is a social cultural disease brought on by laziness and improper upbringing - all abetted by a willing Federal Government.
Great Britain, actually.
I do recall a calypso song about that very thing:
I condemn the culture all the time. I get called “racist” for it until I make the accuser define racism (the belief that some “races” are inherently superior or inferior due to genetic makeup), then I’m not a racist by definition, because genetics doesn’t determine cultural behavior.
And, as someone with a biblical worldview, I don’t even believe in the concept of “race”.
Okay, but you have to admit that they have other problems which make this look like tinker toys - ISLAM....
