This isn't a 'struggle'; it is a goal.

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.

A friend of mine and I once stopped off in a little Alabama railroad town. He wanted to stop at an old time general store, actually one long shot-gun type store by the railroad tracks through town. He was looking for planter vegetable seeds,etc. It was an old store with lots of neat stuff and we were there an hour or so.

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....

Duh! And how old was this woman? Probably not more than her mid-30’s. Seriously! This is unbelievable. There are many in the AA community - “mothers” - who are becoming grandmothers by the time they’re in their early-mid 30s. These statistics are horrifying IMHO. 72%? And 50+ amongst hispanics? I truly cannot grasp how seriously horrifying that is and what it bodes for the future for our country with stats like that. It’s scary- scary indeed!
