Black, White, Whatever: Every Racial Group Is Hurt When This Happens In Society …

Written by Shawn Meyer on June 19, 2018

Now that Father’s Day is past, it’s good to know one of the best ways to celebrate fathers all year long is to rededicate yourself to fighting the growth of government.

When the federal government decided to wage its unconstitutional so-called war on poverty, it really amounted to a declaration of war on the family and on children. 54 years later, poverty levels are essentially the same, and fatherless levels are through the ceiling.

Minorities have been hit the hardest. For example, before the government replaced fathers, black children in America had about a 50% chance of living with both of their biological parents until age 17. By the 1980s, it was 6%. Before 1960, only 2% of black children would be reared in homes in which the mother was never married. Now that figure is close to 60%.

And it isn’t only minorities who suffer. Fatherlessness is a problem for every race. Out-of-wedlock births in general are up 700% since the ineffectual war on poverty began in 1964.

You can Google the effects of fatherlessness on children and if you’ve never encountered these statistics, you will likely be shocked at how every societal problem we have is dramatically increased with the rise in fatherlessness. If you love children and believe in fathers, fight big government.
