Happy Fathers day!

I know quite a few single mothers, it's always surprising to me that they don't go after the fathers for child support.

 

IMO it's a huge problem, but not many people are willing to discuss it or offer ways to "fix" it without others calling them racists.

Oh, nobody here doubts you're pro-forced birth control or financial penalty for things in which minorities make up a higher percentile of the population of...

 

No one's forced to do anything.  You're subject to loss of benefits.  You're focusing on the racial makeup of a societal problem/issue.  Name an issue you choose NOT to bring race into.

I didn't bring race into this thread. You did by starting it. It is another one of your typical threads that you only start because of a racial disparity.

G5, do you think poverty has anything to do with it?

So because I posted a story about the high % of single parent households in Richmond...you're red flag goes off.  Zod's Cosby thread accepted though. 

 

Ignorance is bliss.

I don't think I even read or posted in the Cosby thread. Stop deflecting.

 

SZ(I think?)'s reference to JAQing off pretty much sums up your views on the issue so far...

"Hey guys! Look at the inordinate amount of single parent households in Richmond! Wow 60%! But, look at the African American number! Herpa Derp! Better call Maury!"

follow up posts - "aww c'mon let's all JAQ off and come up with solutions that place further institutionalized strain on evidenced single parent households!"

Sure, but sometimes that's just a cop out.  A ton of funding goes to education initiatives even in very prominent left/blue areas and results are the same if not worse well.  Even more emphasis has to be put on providing options for the poor in terms of both benefit enhancement and an incentive to use birth control.  I'm for birth control.  I'm not for forcing it...but I am for reducing one's benefit for poor choices.

i would argue it is the driving force behind these problems, and causes self-perpetuating cycles of destructive behavior. in sociological circles the term for it is a "culture of poverty."

60% is bad....so doesn't 80%+ seem a lot worse?  As far as Maury, does he limit himself to only doing baby daddy segments to one race?
