I would hope at this point you would understand the historical idiocy of the answer given in the below video. The answer given to the greatest threat to the black community is absence fathers, but what started this trend? What laws were in place that gave rise and aid to this epidemic? This video ignores the obvious answer here. SLAVERY!
Blacks were purposely separated from families, from their culture, from their heritage and given new names to help erase their identity. It was never encouraged that the black family be a family unit. Furthermore, after slavery laws were put in place to remove fathers from the homes of black women in order to receive needed aid. Why did they need aid? Did you forget that after slavery black people received nothing. Following the growing epidemic you then add the number of blacks who are funneled into the prison system on some bogus charges and over inflated charges thus creating a further gap. This all at the hands of RACISM!
Now we are in the 21st century and there are still laws in place along with negative black family images on television to continue this flow of absence fathers. Why are black families seldom shown together in a positive light on television? RACISM!
The biggest threat to black communities has and will always be RACISM! Black women are entering college at a staggering rate and fight an uphill battle to actually graduate. They maybe enrolling at the highest rate, but they are not graduating at the highest rate. Black men and women face extra scrutiny in college and one simple failed grade and you will be kicked out, while your white counterpart may fail multiple classes and still graduate from that college.
TO IGNORE RACISM IS DEMONIC. WHY? BECAUSE ANYONE TELLING YOU THAT IS NOT THE GREATEST THREAT TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY IS LYING AND WE ALL KNOW WHO THE FATHER OF LIES IS. Just in case you don’t his name it is Lucifer, SATAN, The Great Beast, etc. He has many names.
Now this video suggest that blacks did better in slavery. REALLY? Actually, blacks have more money presently then any generation before it, but we still lag behind whites by 80%. This video gets one thing right, we do need governmental laws to change, lets start with telling the whole truth in school history books and removing zoning laws and race from zip codes. If we are one society of Americans, why keep record of what race is in what zip code, unless you have plans to practice gentrification and white supremacy.
Tell me what you see in the video?
