oh here is the radio interview.
he said 3/4 of black children are raised in single parent households and "i cannot imagine a more deleterious effect...to be raised by one parent, often female, with not a lot of money."



eta: bc nobody needs a white man in their face like that

What's a couple of people's failure to get a ring got to do with our race or anything in reference to the topic at hand?
Its everything with the topic at hand.... Its a cycle. Black men who have been raised in single family household have never seen a proper example of a relationship and never seen what a stand up man is suppose to be. These men typically grow up not knowing the importance of marriage. Black women growing up in these households as well don't expect a ring and think cause they saw their mothers do it on their own that they can to. This is a cycle that only hurts the child the mother ends up raising on her own. Look at the statistics and see for yourself. A percentage of black inmates are from single mother homes. A highe percentage of black pregnant teens grew up without fathers. The list goes on.

my problem is that if you want to make it a single parent thing include everyone

and I am sick of Bill Maher's ass always bringing up black people when he talks about welfare

This. And I also don't necessarily agree that you HAVE to get a ring just to because a man is willing to be there to take care of you and your child that HE aided in creating. That whole tactic of thinking that marriage will automatically make a man want to stick around and be there for you and your child irks me. 

that is bc people do it wrong. marriage should make him want to stay and build with you and vise versa.  that is the purpose of modern day marriage.  build a family, wealth, a foundation, and a future.

True. These days people have the notion that by getting married that automatically means the person they are with is there to stay always and that they will never leave or that it will make the person care more and not do things such as cheat. It seems that more often than not marriage results in divorce because of that exact mentality because, like you said, people go about marriage the wrong way. They think marriage is going to change a person when in reality it doesn't.

Not sure if that's true

Maybe he's referring to the stat that 72% (or something around that) of all Black children are being born out of wedlock now

And this is obviously anecdotal but in my experience, the most successful (successful meaning, the moms and kids have stable, good lives) single parents I've seen have been black and hispanic. All the white single mothers I know are a mess and their kids are drug addicts and drop outs.

I noticed that with the successful ones, once the moms had kids they literally devoted their lives to their children and focused on being great parents. For example, they either went to school or got real jobs, they actively made the choice to not have men in and out of their lives, and they only had one child (bc they knew how much harder it would be with more than one). All the kids I know from these situations have master's degrees and are doing well in life.
