It's sooooooooo easy to place blame on women to distact what the FOCK MANY men are NOT doing for their children. If single black women weren't able to raise their sons we wouldn't have black men like: Barack Obama, Malcolm X, Richard Wright, George Washington Carver, Kwesi Mfsume, Denzel Washington-just to name a few. Now their fathers may have been there in the beginning of their lives....but! It was these men's MOTHERS [except one who was raised by the grandmother].....WHO stood the course and raised them ALL into manhood-that's what mothers do. And that's why MOTHER'S day is one of wall's street biggest celebration in terms of money spent for one DAY! Other than Christmas. Plus I personally KNOW single women through the years who RAISED phemenonal black MEN who didn't go into the woos of street life and went on to college and created a wonderful/positive/productive lives for themselves. So this again...is straight out BULLSHYTE. No merit. Nada. But!
You might need more and better examples...kweli mfume has five kids with fibber different mothers, President Obama mother was white and he credits his grandparents with raising him, Malcolm X served many years in jail a credits Elijah Muhammad with teaching him how to be a man...but to your list I'd like to add other famous examples, like Chris Brown (after his parents divorce, moms boyfriend beat him savagely...did the writer mention that in the text?), Now bankrupt/unemployable Allen Iverson and Terrell Owens (both with emotional issues related to not knowing or having a realitionship with their father, per their mother actions that were described in the posted blog, )and Mike Tyson. There are many other examples, but I hope you get my point
