Can't stand O'Reilly but he hit the nail on the head on this one.
that 73% of all black babies born out of wedlock is astounding- couple that with the black abortion rate and you ave a moral epidemic
As with most issues in the end it comes down a moral compass that's gone terribly askew.
The cycle won't change. Dems need a dependant class and will continue to support this for their own benefit. Power and corruption has no end and those who use people like this are scum.
Cutting off welfare if the father is not only married to the mother but living in the house.
Yes it does, but it is a fact that 73% of black children are maternally raised.
Dead on, but it will fall on deaf ears, and O'Reilley will be labelled a racist. Count on it. people are afraid to even DISCUSS the issues out of fear of beling labelled. These folks learned their Marx and Lenin very well indeed...
"Crush dissent by calling them out publicly, loud and often."
Of course. Want to look at percentages while you are at it?
And we have a name for white women who spit out kids for cash and men who plant seeds without responsibility.
We call them white trash. We do not embrace them as poor "victims." They are people for whom we (rich and poor alike) are embarrassed to be associated with.
Many black people are also embarrassed and ashamed of their folks who do this, but they are drowned out by official apologists who make excuses for their irresponsible behavior. Detroit is the shining example. More inner cities will soon follow.
It is the tragedy of cultural disintegration, something Thomas Sowell writes extensively about. Sowell is forever thankful he grew up in the 1950s in Bed-Stu as a poor young black kid, before he learned he was a "victim" of institutional racism and the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow, thus being entitled to shirk his responsibility so that he could properly express his "righteous rage."
The lack of a father figure is very telling in the black community and results in young men going astray.
Think about it. Blacks are about 13% of the population yet are responsible for 50% of the murders. Not many women murder so now we're down to roughly 6%. Scratch the older men and we're down to 3-4% of the population committing 50% of the murders.
Some call it profiling but facts are facts that are not adequately being addressed by the Jackson's and Sharpton's of the world. Those who do (Cosby/Justice Thomas/Thomas Sowell, etc.) are labeled Uncle Tom's.
Absolutely. Why wouldn't it?
Will MSNBC opine that 70% of African American children being born out of wedlock is a good thing? Will it argue that the absence of fathers from homes where a large number of children grow up is not problematic?
Surely it will not argue that people do not make personal choices, but can and should blame the choices they make on others.
Where is the concern that blacks are killing blacks in Chicago in unacceptably high numbers? When one kills another with a gun, did someone else make the choice to kill?
Why are black leaders not encouraging [some] people of color to stop making bad personal choices, such as the ones addressed herein?
I normally don't like O Reilly but he is sadly right.
The children being born out of wedlock is mainly a financial reason. There is zero incentive to marry and zero deterrent to have out of wedlock kids. The system is set up to incentivize out of wedlock children.
I think it is a lack of morals
The only way to fix the problem is to incentivize the good behavior, but the libs will say you are forcing them to do things they don't want to. Always the victim, the victim of their own bad decisions. They are uneducated, but smart enough to game the system. A few generations of experience helps!
It's Great to be a Florida Gator!
If I have 2 babies and I refuse to do community service, do you let the babies starve?
If I have a 3rd, 4th, and 5th do you let them starve regardless of what I do?
Yes. Let a little shame and judging kick in. Those kids will get fed.
Some will, some won't. It probably would result in a lot more kids being given up to the state though, esp. if you combine it with making abortions more difficult to obtain. Sounds like a great plan to save money.
What happened to the teen birth rate and the abortion rate after Clinton passed welfare reform? It actually went down.
Lots of good things happened- employment went up, economy got better, gov't spent less, etc etc.
These things didn't happen in a vacuum but welfare reform did not cause the cataclysm that so many on the left predicted. Actually it resulted in improvements on a lot of fronts. Then we slipped back into old habits.
