If you read what she said you would see that it wasn't really that incendiary .
She talked about the importance of extended families, same sex families.

She only conceded that at the height of the feminist movement the campaigners may have neglected family.

I don't see the problem with making connections there might be more to it but connections are interesting and lead to other interesting findings
Hell air conditioners are blamed for the demise of community and neighborhood.
And I can see the connection there too

When it comes to family problems women are always to blame. Its like people forget men exist and can have impact when this topic comes up.

IMO the feminist SAHM mom thing seems very white to me. I just can't imagine black women, as broke as they were, being able to just be SAHMs. I feel like a majority of black women always had to work and that was a #whitewomanproblem.

I saw the documentary "What Men Think" and it briefly explained that welfare was the cause of destruction of the Black family. I'd rather see that thought more deeply explored.

truth.

Black families were given a greater amount of monetary assistance from uncle sam if the father left the family. And so continued our down ward spiral

Do you really think that's why already proud good providing fathers would leave their families?

Ehhhh

I think the breakdown happened elsewhere

people did what they had to do.
if you were a black man during that time would you stay even if it meant your family had to be on the brink of starving and homelessness? (which im sure was not every black family's situation, but it is true for many) You would let your pride stand in the way of your hungry kids?
