Over 70% of African American kids are born to single-mothers. They are also over-represented in prisons, and Special Education classrooms. I would be willing to bet that if this statistic could be lowered to 30% or less, that the African American community would thrive in all areas of life. There would be no reason to have Affirmative Action bills, specialized programs for minorities, or worries that there aren't enough black CEO's. It all comes back to the family. Bill Cosby has been trying to get this very message through to the African American community for a long time now, but unfortunately the NAACP, and other ethnocentric organizations have let this message go by the way side. Martin Luther King Jr. said that we should be judged by the quality of our character, not the color of our skin. Indeed sir, indeed.
