The New Normal: Children Out of Wedlock

She needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

This is what the end of the “Patriarchy” looks like.  The nuclear family has been all but destroyed by the counterculture revolution of the 60s.  Back in the 80s when Vice-president Dan Quayle denounced Hollywood’s positive depiction of single motherhood in the show Murphy Brown, the term “family values” was turned into a punchline by cultural sophisticates of the day.  It would send the wrong message to our daughters that childbirth out of wedlock was a viable choice, Mr. Quayle warned:

”It doesn’t help matters when prime-time TV has Murphy Brown — a character who supposedly epitomizes today’s intelligent, highly paid, professional woman — mocking the importance of fathers by bearing a child alone and calling it just another ‘lifestyle choice.”’

He was vilified by the Left for his closed-minded intolerance.

The sexual revolution, the divorce revolution, and the welfare state have since come together to form a perfect storm of culture destruction in our poorest communities as unwed mothers and children out of wedlock in black communities become the “new normal”.  To affluent, white radical Vagina Warriors of the 60s – 80s who screeched that marriage is slavery and sexual intercourse is rape, this was ever their goal– to destroy that misogynous “patriarchy” and the oppression inflicted on womynkind.  They have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams, certainly in our poorest communities.  But while the rich white Liberal folk who promote this madness have the money to buy their way out of the worst consequences of their destructive worldview, poor blacks do not.  They become slaves to the State, and their children at risk.

In effect, secular progressive culture destruction has created the need for the Welfare State without which these fatherless families would be doomed.  In this way, the Welfare State and Leftwing culture destruction are symbiotic and mutually perpetuating, both justifying each other’s existence in a downward spiral of social dysfunction.

And this is what the end of the patriarchy looks like.

Blacks struggle with 72 percent unwed mothers rate

HOUSTON – Seventy-two percent of black babies are born to unmarried mothers today, according to government statistics. This number is inseparable from the work of Carroll, an obstetrician who has dedicated her 40-year career to helping black women.

“The girls don’t think they have to get married. I tell them children deserve a mama and a daddy. They really do,” Carroll says from behind the desk of her office, which has cushioned pink-and-green armchairs, bars on the windows, and a wooden “LOVE” carving between two African figurines. Diamonds circle Carroll’s ring finger.

As the issue of black unwed parenthood inches into public discourse, Carroll is among the few speaking boldly about it. And as a black woman who has brought thousands of babies into the world, who has sacrificed income to serve Houston’s poor, Carroll is among the few whom black women will actually listen to.

“A mama can’t give it all. And neither can a daddy, not by themselves,” Carroll says. “Part of the reason is because you can only give that which you have. A mother cannot give all that a man can give. A truly involved father figure offers more fullness to a child’s life.”

Statistics show just what that fullness means. Children of unmarried mothers of any race are more likely to perform poorly in school, go to prison, use drugs, be poor as adults, and have their own children out of wedlock.

The black community’s 72 percent rate eclipses that of most other groups: 17 percent of Asians, 29 percent of whites, 53 percent of Hispanics and 66 percent of Native Americanswere born to unwed mothers in 2008, the most recent year for which government figures are available. The rate for the overall U.S. population was 41 percent.

This issue entered the public consciousness in 1965, when a now famous government report by future senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan described a “tangle of pathology” among blacks that fed a 24 percent black “illegitimacy” rate. The white rate then was 4 percent.

Many accused Moynihan, who was white, of “blaming the victim:” of saying that black behavior, not racism, was the main cause of black problems. That dynamic persists. Most talk about the 72 percent has come from conservative circles; when influential blacks like Bill Cosby have spoken out about it, they have been all but shouted down by liberals saying that a lack of equal education and opportunity are the true root of the problem.

  1. […] With 72% out of wedlock births in the black community, does this come as any surprise?  The sexual revolution, the divorce revolution and the Welfare State all locked together in a downward spiral of social dysfunction yield the following results.  The culprit– yet again– Leftism.This is what the radical feminists (the only ones that really counted) wanted all along. […]

  2. “a lack of equal education and opportunity are the true root of the problem.”

    I support equal education and opportunity, but those libs are just making excuses. If anyone wants to know how to very nearly eliminate this problem here’s the solution: women needs to stop having no-strings-attached sex with shmucks. That’ll do it. Make the males EARN it by proving they’re responsible and disciplined – by proving that they’re MEN. And exercise good judgment – don’t waste time on douchebags. And here’s a hint: dealing on the corner does not count as employment. And remember: in return for not being a gang member (and therefore possibly being rejected by their bros), men don’t want to deal with an angry bitch, particularly of the money-grubbing variety. Be nice to them when they’ve been good, and when they haven’t, help them understand why there’s no fucking way they’re getting any ass (“Because being slapped around does not turn me on” – and if it does, well… lie. And then go get therapy). There may be a few more specifics to cover, but that’s basically it.

    When women’s standards improve, men’s behavior does as well. Now, how to get women who don’t know this to give my advice a chance…
