RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) — As Father’s Day approaches, children are reminded to appreciate their dads and the impact on their lives.

Today dads around the city were honored a week in advance of Father’s Day. Celebrate Fatherhood 2013 was held this afternoon at the Collegiate School Aquatics Center. While these dads and their children enjoyed the moon bounce and competed in contests, an alarming amount of children in the area won’t have fathers around to celebrate the holiday with.

First Things First, an organization dedicated to keeping dads involved in kids lives, reports that 60 percent of all families in the city of Richmond are single parent households. Within the African-American demographic, that number spikes up to 86 percent, a number that surpasses the national average.

 

Paging Maury Povich...paging Maury Povich.

I opened this thread looking at the title and the thread author with the suspicion that the punchline would be something about black people.

 

Not exactly rocket surgery, obviously.

You open every thread with the same hope, even if they are not remotely close.

I find this to be one of the biggest problems in our society today.  Simply dismiss the data because it's uncomfortable?

I find racist people getting off on confirmation bias to be a much bigger issue, really.

I thought this was going to be about the 4 year old who shot his dad, how surprising G5 created a rant about black guys

60% of all Richmond isn't black, but there's an issue there too, but no one wants to address it
