The African American Motherhood Problem
The statistics about black men in America are well established with respect to heightened anti-social behaviors including greater incarceration, lower school graduation, etc., and in particular increasing rates of black men not directly raising their children.
Since there seems to be a serious problem with black men, and since many/most of these black men are growing up in homes parented just by black women - do the problems with black men really come from a crisis of African American motherhood? Are black women failing their children? Are they not preparing their boys to be men? Are they not preparing their girls to be mothers? Would African America really be much better off if black women got their "stuff" together?
What do you think?
