the biggest contributor to the break down of the negro family structure is welfare.

there is an interesting study of Harlem NY 1850 to 1970 completed by the department of Health and human services in MD.

Harlem was selected for the study cause it was a stable black population since the mid 1800's so there is a wealth of historical data to read and verify.

Harlem had about the same rate of two parents head of households as did the larger white community around them 89% of homes in Harlem where headed by a husband and wife from 1859 until 1970.

Black woman of Harlem had a 3% lower rate of children born out of wedlock than did the larger white community around them from 1850 until 1970.

then along came big welfare programs and those numbers all changed. fewer that 49 % of home were occupied by a married couple and children born to unwed black woman rose to over 55%. That is a serious change in events.

the studies conclusion was that welfare destroyed the black family.

guess black people just don't realize they are being held slaves to welfare.

Probably won't end up with much discussion here as the truth presented is too obvious. Dr. Carter's ideas are too radical for most Detroiters to accept and act upon.
