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.

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....
