Being a product of a single-parent home isn't a fail, as much as the way that these single-parent homes are created.

 
And while what he said was very demoralizing as well as very myopic, I will say that the Black American community is still, in large part, very oriented around survival instead of success.
 
Even at the collegiate level, the goal of too many Black students is to graduate, instead of graduating with honors, preparing for graduate school and/or landing a job after graduation.

It's disrespectful on so many levels



Yeah but it is also very accurate for a sh*tload of people...you simply cannot understand how true this is until you actually experience it first hand...

Aunt B always provides profundity.  Do you think it's bc many are first generation so just getting through is an accomplishment? Why do those at the collegiate level just want to get out? Disillusion?

I live in a predominately Mexican/Hispanic city.
It has one of the highest, if not the highest:
 
teen pregnancy rates in the nation.
REPEAT teen pregancy rates in the nation.
high school drop out rates in the nation.
 
I speak to people on a regular basis that quit school as early as the 9th grade w/ no repercussions from their parents. Their parents had ZERO problems w/ them quitting school. Sometimes, it was encouraged because they needed help feeding all of the mouths in the household.Shocked
