Fatherless America - great book already written, though not focused on one race.
Excuses have to stop and people have to face up to the broken parts of their lives. I did it, others can do it. Help is available if people want it. I was teenage kid on my own, financially strapped and I wouldn't take no for an answer when it came to getting things straight.
It starts in repentance for what we've done wrong, and then walking on to face and unravel what others did wrongly to us. Excuses have no place in a healthy life.
