CONSIDERED OBJECTIVELY...:

Celebrating black history as the black family disintegrates (Colbert I. King, February 5, 2011, Washington Post)

Here we are, another Black History Month: time to lionize great black men and women of the past. Twenty-eight days to praise the first African American to do this and the first African American who did that. Another month of looking back with pride - as we ignore the calamity in our midst.

When Black History Month was celebrated in 1950, according to State University of New York research, 77.7 percent of black families had two parents. As of January 2010, according to the Census Bureau, the share of two-parent families among African Americans had fallen to 38 percent.

We know that children, particularly young male African Americans, benefit from parental marriage and from having a father in the home. Today, the majority of black children are born to single, unmarried mothers.

Celebrate? Let's celebrate.


...the Left's war on cultural norms appears to be a war on minorities. Although, they might prefer to think of them as collateral damage.
