Now, did black descendants of slaves have their own set of values/customs/culture and traditional family models to pattern themselves after, compared to ethnic groups who've immigrated to the US on their own accord, like Asians or Hispanics or Jews? Because if the problem with blacks in America is lacking family values, as some are saying, could one of the reasons be that they never had a sense of identity or culture to start with due to being taken from Africa against their will and in a sense were making their own culture and family models as they went along? I'm thinking this could've put many descendants of slaves at a disadvantage and could skew the stats against American born blacks. Just a question.
