Excellent article that everyone needs to read.
From the article:
By Lee Culpepper
“By avoiding hard questions in nearly every story connected to America’s most dysfunctional children, the liberal media help to perpetuate the fairy-tale about Democrats being the champions of society’s victims. However, who could be more of a victim than a child whose father’s love, discipline, and positive example have been replaced by the pretense of government benevolence?”
” he uncivilized behavior is far too common among youths without dads dedicated to their lives. Granted, a handful of fatherless kids overcome steep odds, but the vast majority simply proliferate the cycle of more fatherless and dysfunctional children, with half-siblings sired by incredibly proud slackers.
Statistics about fatherless childrenreveal plenty concerning the chaos the news media pretend not notice almost every time stories involving bona fide juvenile delinquents appear. Of the youths in prison, 85 percent are from fatherless homes. Children without fathers account for 63 percent of youth suicides, 70 percent of teenage pregnancies, 80 percent of rapists with displaced anger, 85 percent of children with behavioral problems, and 71 percent of high school dropouts. ”
This author brings out a few more shocking facts that liberals and even few conservatives don’t want to admit: the almost complete breakdown of the African American family.
Again from the article:
“It is almost common knowledge that72 percent of black children now grow up in homes without a father. Furthermore, despite the incredibly low graduation standards public schools have today, nearly 50 percent of black males drop out of school. Of course, black children are not alone in the disaster liberals have created by replacing a father’s hard-earned income, unconditional love, and stern discipline with government handouts, bleeding-heart psychobabble, and a child’s deep self-reflection.”
Until this shocking number of 72% of African American children being born to unwed mothers is addressed, nothing is going to change.
I agree that this immoral mess has been caused by the liberal policies of welfare and WIC and food stamps and every other government program.
No one minds helping those who are truly in need or who ate truly disabled. No one minds supporting an unwed or otherwise single mother as she goes to school to improve her families chances. But I am SICK of the sixth and seventh and even eighth generation of welfare people have no intention of ever working or ever getting off of the government dole.
