What exactly do your stats prove?

Are they including the mother and father both Black? The mother White and father Black? The mother Black and the father White? A dark skin baby who's grandfather was Black, but grandmother, mother, and father are all White?
So what's your point?

The New York Times is the source of the stat. What does the stats say? It is very simple. The country is going to hell in a hand basket. Black illegitimacy is the highest but none of the numbers are acceptable.

The nine stages of a civilization.

1. From bondage to spiritual faith;
2. from spiritual faith to great courage;
3. from courage to liberty;
4. from liberty to abundance;
5. from abundance to selfishness;
6. from selfishness to complacency;
7. from complacency to apathy;
8. from apathy to dependence;
9. from dependency back again into bondage.

I would say we are in stage 7 going into stage 8. If the Govt. takes your guns away stage 9 comes faster. Civilizations come and go, ours will no different. We are the new Rome, we are Romans and we will fall. I may not live to see it but it will happen.

A bastard is a child born out of wedlock.

What is racist about facts? Your Obama talks about this in nearly every speech he gives. You should be the one that is ashamed and may be the one that is moraly wrong. What do this say about the morals of this country?

I'm just saying:
Most of my black friends didn't have fathers growing up. They were raised by their mothers or grandmothers. I can only think of a few that had fathers :?
I feel bad for women black or white who get mixed up with black guys.

It is likely that the high incidence of unmarried black mothers is related to the high level of poverty among blacks.

I bet that you'd find similar numbers among poor white women.

The stats are just a mirror that blacks and latinos are more likely to be poor than whites.

So....the real problem here appears to be....POVERTY.

Solve that.

Where did this come from? By civilization falling what exactly do you mean? America? Western Civilization? What about Europe?

Based on your opinion of 50% of black people I'm guessing you didn't have too many black friends.

No the real problem is that black men will not take the responsibility for their actions and wont get a job to support their children and black women have learned it easy to have several kids and get on welfare than it is to work. POVERTY has nothing with the numbers. Buti bet being lazy does. They can stay home watch tv, eat till they are so fat they cant walk,talk on their OBAMA phone.get free healthcare and live good. ALL on the backs of the working people.

I don't know where you got this 50% at? Or that I didn't have many black friends. I didn't say what % had black fathers in my post, maybe you're confused?

I had quite a few black friends growing up. I expect this to be challenged or called in to question. I use to be be friends with a lot of black people until they started using drugs and acting badly (my teenage years). I was never like this so I went my own way. I grew up hating racist people btw. My own views of black people come from my actual experiences with them. I guess now I am somewhat racist.

IMO, most black guys don't want to settle down with one woman and be fathers, life is a big party to them. I don't understand black or white guys that act like this. I have what I want in my life.
