Hail Patriarchy

Father’s Day is a time for black America and our first black president Barack Obama to tell black men to man up, start marrying their women and stop killing each other.   […]  So why won’t Obama address the nation and tell black men to start being fathers, getting married before they have babies, and to be a parent to the babies they have? This would be a great way to demonstrate that black lives truly matter.
[…]  When will Obama and Democrats demand black fathers be part of the black family equation? Better yet, if Hillary Clinton believes in feminism, why doesn’t she tell young black women to respect themselves more, focus on graduating high school, delay sex until marriage, and use birth control so their lives and their future children’s will matter?

    Yes, amen! Wouldn’t that be awesome? Marriage, family, may be challenging but it has to be better than killing one another in the streets.

  2. I think as a society we are forgetting that human lives matter. Can we as a species last long when people care more about the life of a gorilla than a child?

      Any visitor to our nation can stroll around (or watch the news) and observe the results of absent fathers. It really is a no-brainer. But difficult to reverse.

      • It lasts for generations. My father-in-law’s dad died when he was three months old and that absence is still felt four generations later as an emotional absence. Men without dads have a hard time knowing how to be a dad on an emotional level even if they provide for their kids. I think slavery destroyed black families and it has never been repaired. I blame drugs for what is happening in white families.
