Nicole Hawkins three daughters have matching glittery boots, but none has the same father. Each has uniquely colored ties in her hair, but none has a dad present in her life.
As another single mother on Sumner Road decked her row-house stoop with Christmas lights and a plastic Santa, Ms. Hawkins recalled that her middle childs father has never spent a holiday or birthday with her. In her neighborhood in Southeast Washington, 1 in 10 children live with both parents, and 84 percent live with only their mother

This is the stinking legacy left by LBJ and his “War on Poverty” that substituted the welfare check for the Black father. And Blacks are so greedy for that check that they’ll vote for slavery on the Democrat plantation every election.
There’s gotta be some Republican somewhere that we can blame for this....
Yes the war on poverty is a huge success. Only two generations to achieve 75%+ illegitimacy rate in the black community. Now they’re all govt dependents and guaranteed voters. I must say it was a devious and successful plan.
Progressives are ecstatic. One more step to their idea of nirvana.
This is a GOAL of the left. Destruction of the family.
They LOVE IT.
Sad indeed but the number of children born out of wedlock represents one of the greatest failings of the schools and churches, churches especially, to promote the most basic morality, “flee from fornication”.
I had to cover a high school class a couple of years ago. There wasn't room in a regular classroom to have the students sit, so we sat that period in the auditorium. I was simply horrified to see most of the boys (the class was all boys) pull out their favorite brand of condom from their backpacks and discuss which was better. A sort of consumers report on condoms. They never even glanced at the handouts their teacher had left for them. This is what interests them, what they will devote their one brain cell to.
"Feed 'Em and Breed 'Em" programs can't go on ad infinitum because at a certain point, there won't be enough taxpayers to pay for all the take-take-takers. Then the whole thing will collapse.
I agree. If a person approves of sex outside marriage, he has small grounds to complain about this outcome. “It’s not a bug: it’s a feature!”
Ha ha ha.
This is the Great Society, don’t you know! The family has been in a downward spiral since Johnson made sure that these welfare queens would get their government checks each month. Why keep the dad around? Why get married? Uncle Sam will pay. It is generational and cultural now.
LBJ was an idiot. There! I said it!
Obamunism redistributes wealth to black harems and calls it social justice.
Very Sad indeed, however if a female decides to have sex outside of marriage and does not use the proper government approved and government supplied methods of preventing pregnancy, and then through their own free will refuses to avail themselves of another government approved and government sponsored solution to legally murder their child before birth (abortion) sounds to me like they made their own decisions and they can all starve and die in the street as far as I am concerned. We used to call this “The Consequences of your Actions” We see stories like this on a daily basis outlining how WOMEN just are not capable of making decisions that will have a positive effect on their lives, regardless of how many chances we give them. WHY DO WE LET WOMEN VOTE??
As much as I have always hated LBJ, his success was in knowing black culture that came from growing up around blacks. A historic matriartical culture where males have one responsibility, sperm donation.
The only cultural deviation was from an exposure to European Christianity culture, from which LBJ knew would be an easy retro-conversion back to african ways.
“The country went to h—l when they took the crank off cars and gave the vote to women”
I'm my dad's only daughter! :^)
I hate the term single mother’s as applied to women with children who have never married. I prefer sluts with kids.
Must be the Republican war on women’s fault.
Happy New Year
