    It's this and not the white man that is keeping black people in poverty: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/39993685/n.../#.UVM6bByG3z4

    I'm not shocked about this. I would imagine that the statistics for younger white women are higher than you would think, too. Most of my younger coworkers and many that are my age have had children out of wedlock.


    When I talk with the teenaged girls I work with (white and black), they usually ask me if I have any kids. I say no, except you all. When they ask why, I tell them because I've never been married. Every single one of them has responded to this with a "that doesn't matter". I usually just say "it matters to me".

    So, it's a trend that's been in the black community for a couple of generations, but is catching up in the white demographics, too.

    And it's bad news whatever color you are, and a guarantor of poverty.

    Just because one segment of the population is wrecking marriage & family doesn't mean we can allow another segment to do the same.

    Actually, no:

    Children Born Out Of Wedlock By Race

    Black-72%
    Latino-53%
    White-29%

    Nearly half of that of Latino's and nearly 1/3 of that of blacks.

    It has been a trend among blacks going back to slavery when in many cases it was forced on them and that may actually have some bearing on why the tradition still continues.
    How is obama working out for you?
