Report: Just 17% Black Teens Live with Parents, 54% for Whites, Both Low Marks

Paul Bedard, Washington Examiner, February 12, 2015

A comprehensive survey of U.S. Census data finds that the nuclear American family, where both biological parents are at home, is in meltdown, with blacks teens being hit especially hard with less than 2-in-10 15-17-year-olds living with mom and dad.

The survey from the Family Research Council’s Marriage and Religion Research Institute released Thursday also shows a depressing historical roadmap of the breakup of traditional families, a trend the group fears will continue unless marriage “until death do us part” is revived.

Key highlights from the “Fifth Annual Index of Family Belonging and Rejection” provided in advance to Secrets:

— 46 percent of teens 15-17 have grown up with the biological parents, an all-time low from a high of 63 percent in 1950.

— Just 17 percent of black teens live with their nuclear family, another all-time low and down from 38 percent in 1950.

— 54 percent of white kids aged 15-17 grew up with their biological family intact, a low point and down from 67 percent in 1950.

{snip}

The fifth annual survey also charted when families appear to break up, typically over time and as their children get older. For example, 75 percent of white two-year-olds in 2012 lived with their biological parents, but by age 17, that was down to 52 percent.

For blacks, the survey of Census data showed that black kids typically start out in broken homes, with just 30 percent of black two-year-olds living with their parents, dropping to 17 percent at age 17.

    I’ve been a “single” mom since my son was 10 and my husband left. I believe he’ll be back, though. My son needs both parents.

    We’d been married for 8 years when our son was born.

    • LHathaway

      Maybe he will be. I wonder if men are intimidated. . if their son (or daughter perhaps, lol) is growing up to be bigger than they are? It might not be any kind of an issue (and it probably works the opposite way, actually) but that idea could possibly be in the back or a man’s mind.

    • MeanWhiteBoy

      Not having both parents does hurt blacks. However it is a contributing factor to the lack of intelligence and lack of a strong work ethic. Both are rarely found in many blacks. i.e. They didn’t reach the the 3rd step on the 20 foot ladder because they lacked parents. They only made the 2nd step

      I would send him this article, if you hadn’t already:
      drtraycehansen com/Pages/writings_samesex html
      She wrote it about homosexual adoptions, but it’s general: about the need for children to have two parents, and so it is about single parents too. I know you know, i wish your husband to realize this too.

      Here a summary:
      “All else being equal, children do best when raised by a married mother and father. It’s within this environment that children are most likely to be exposed to the emotional and psychological experiences they need in order to thrive.
      Men and women bring diversity to parenting; each makes unique contributions to the rearing of children that can’t be replicated by the other. Mothers and fathers simply are not interchangeable. Two women can both be good mothers, but neither can be a good father.
      So here are five reasons why it’s in the best interest of children to be raised by both a mother and a father:

      1) mother-love and father-love—though equally important—are qualitatively different and produce distinct parent-child attachments. Specifically, it’s the combination of the unconditional-leaning love of a mother and the conditional-leaning love of a father that’s essential to a child’s development.[…]

      2) children progress through predictable and necessary developmental stages. Some stages require more from a mother, while others require more from a father. For example, during infancy, babies of both sexes tend to do better in the care of their mother. Mothers are more attuned to the subtle needs of their infants and thus are more appropriately responsive. However, at some point, if a young boy is to become a competent man, he must detach from his mother and instead identify with his father. A fatherless boy doesn’t have a man with whom to identify and is more likely to have trouble forming a healthy masculine identity.

      A father teaches a boy how to properly channel his aggressive and sexual drives. A mother can’t show a son how to control his impulses because she’s not a man and doesn’t have the same urges as one. A father also commands a form of respect from a boy that a mother doesn’t––a respect more likely to keep the boy in line. And those are the two primary reasons why boys without fathers are more likely to become delinquent and end up incarcerated.
      Father-need is also built into the psyche of girls. There are times in a girl’s life when only a father will do. For instance, a father offers a daughter a safe, non-sexual place to experience her first male-female relationship and have her femininity affirmed. When a girl doesn’t have a father to fill that role she’s more
      likely to become promiscuous in a misguided attempt to satisfy her inborn hunger for male attention and validation.

      Overall, fathers play a restraining role in the lives of their children. They restrain
      sons from acting out antisocially, and daughters from acting out sexually. When there’s no father to perform this function, dire consequences often result both for the fatherless children and for the society in which these children act out their losses.

      3) boys and girls need an opposite-sexed parent to help them moderate their own gender-linked inclinations. As example, boys generally embrace reason over emotion, rules over relationships, risk-taking over caution, and standards over compassion, while girls generally embrace the reverse. An opposite-sexed parent helps a child keep his or her own natural proclivities in check by teaching—verbally and nonverbally—the worth of the opposing tendencies. That teaching not only facilitates moderation, but it also expands the child’s world—helping the child see beyond his or her own limited vantage point.

      4) same-sex marriage will increase sexual confusion and sexual experimentation by young people. The implicit and explicit message of same-sex marriage is that all choices are equally acceptable and desirable. So, even children from traditional homes—influenced by the all-sexual-options-are-equal message—will grow up thinking it doesn’t matter whom one relates to sexually or marries. Holding such a belief will lead some—if not many—impressionable young people to consider sexual and marital arrangements they never would have contemplated previously. And children from hom0sessual families, who are already more likely to experiment sexually, would do so to an even greater extent, because not only was non-traditional sexuality role-modeled by their parents, it was also approved by their society.
      There is no question that human sexuality is pliant.[…] That which a society sanctions, it gets more of.

      And 5) if society permits same-sex marriage, it also will have to allow other types of marriage. The legal logic is simple: If prohibiting same-sex marriage is discriminatory, then disallowing polygamous marriage, polyamorous marriage, or any other marital grouping will also be deemed discriminatory. The emotional and psychological ramifications of these assorted arrangements on the developing psyches and sexuality of children would be disastrous. […]

      Certainly homosessual couples can be just as loving as heterosexual couples, but children require more than love. They need the distinctive qualities and the
      complementary natures of a male and female parent.
      The accumulated wisdom of over 5,000 years has concluded that the ideal marital and parental configuration is composed of one man and one woman. Arrogantly disregarding such time-tested wisdom, and using children as guinea pigs in a radical experiment, is risky at best, and cataclysmic at worst.
      Same-sex marriage definitely isn’t in the best interest of children. And although we empathize with those hom0sexuals who long to be married and parent children, we mustn’t allow our compassion for them to trump our compassion for children. In a contest between the desires of some hom0sexuals and the needs of all children, we can’t allow the children to lose.”

      If you think my previous article is too long for him, here is another article, quite shorter but not as powerfull:

      “Women and men parent very differently — and this is a great thing,” says Dr. Meg Meeker, author of the bestselling “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters.” “My husband and I raised four kids while sharing a medical practice and, even as pediatricians, we disagreed on how to do things. Dads approach parenting with different priorities than we mothers do. They tend to care less about dress, eating habits, and other details. Instead, dads tend to want to play with kids more and challenge them more, and this can help kids gain confidence.”

      With sons, Meeker says, parents play distinct but key roles. “I tell parents that, for boys, life is all about mom during the first 10 years and dad during the second 10. It’s an oversimplification, but mothers bring boys a sense of comfort, stability and an emotional vocabulary. When boys hit puberty and the teen years, they need to spend time with their fathers to learn how to be good men.”

      A father’s involvement matters even more to a daughter. Studies have shown that his physical affection is the best way to elevate her self-esteem, and that girls who spend more time with their dads go through puberty later than girls who don’t have a father at home. They’re also at a much lower risk for depression,
      anxiety, and high-risk behaviors like sex, drugs, drinking. Dads help raise women who are more likely to go on to college and grad school.
      But that doesn’t make it easier when you’re in the moment, watching your husband make a parenting call that you don’t necessarily agree with. But the best thing to do is to let go.

      […] Adequate time with each parent is far more important than worrying about getting tasks done just right.”

      “My advice to moms like me — worried, controlling and absolutely convinced that we know the best way to do things — is this: Let up on dads. They bring an element to child-rearing that we don’t. Just because we’re pickier about some
      things doesn’t mean we’re better,” says Meeker.

      This was from megmeekermd com/2014/10/men-and-women-parent-differently-and-thats-a-good-thing/

        If boys are allowed to win without their parents attempting to challenge them, they grow up with confidence issues, they tend to lack patience, and prefer to quit when things get tough. I’ve seen it with my nephew.

          There must be a great deal of accidental incest in the black community. Maybe not so accidental. Nobody seems to know who their father is.

          • Accidental incest is just about 100% likely, when in ghetto black communities, you have so many women who have so many children by so many men, and you have so many men who have so many children by so many women, often the precise paternity is unknown or uncertain.

            Shaniqua and Aquanetta are (half) sisters because they have the same father but different mothers, but since their individual mothers were uncertain of their fathers, Shaniqua and Aquanetta don’t know that they’re half sisters. One of Shaniqua’s sons and one of Aquanetta’s daughters hook up in a club, then hook up in bed. They’re first cousins and don’t even know it.

            Also there are plenty of stories where the incest is not so accidental. They know they’re closely related and do it anyway, because they just don’t care.

            Aside from all the usual HBD factors, perhaps one reason why black crime is so bad at least in the gang space is maybe on subconscious level, they understand that the gangs are actually tribes of inbred closely related people, the other gangs are competing tribes of other inbred closely related people. If you’ve kept up with reading HBD Chick, then you know that consangunity and close cousin marriage is a big driver of violence.

          • Anglokraut

            In Thoroughbred breeding, a stallion can be bred up to 100 times a season, so the sibling designation comes from being born of the same mare. Any offspring a mare has is at least a half-sibling to each other, and is an easier way to trace lineage than through a stallion who produces 80-100 new foals every Spring.
            Of course, far more planning goes into a Thoroughbred mating than the mating of any Negro. However, the possibility of getting an athletic young buck to age eighteen and that juicy full-ride “athletic scholarship” is the reward for NFL and NBA moms and grandmas, and they know it.

        • Anna Tree

          Actually wasn’t in on Amren I read about this?: that even if not married, Swedish couples stay together to rear their children, like their married counterpart. Not condoning this at all, just saying that Whites are more monogamous and less promiscuous and so the Theory of the Big Numbers still work, i.e. monogamous couples are still the norm in white societies, despite the strong and constant propaganda destructing family values (although sadly, many too many fall for those liberal leftist dogmas.)
          I, like you, agree with LHathaway below. (that first coma is important lol)

      The white numbers certainly are appalling but the black stats also matter to us because it means even more dysfunctional black thugs stalking around in wolf packs.

      • Albert

        Agreed. Dysfunctional families tend to produce dysfunctional people.

    • LHathaway

      Perhaps that percentage of ‘White’ 2 year old’s should be further examined? After all, the ‘white birth rate’ only looks at the race of the mother, and nothing else.

      • Sick of it

        A very good point, sadly.

        • Diana Moon Glampers

          It would be nice to have specifics on the statistics. If you could know the percentage of “whites” who were counted as such but were truly not, and the percentage where only the mother is white, I bet it would change the numbers drastically.

      • Mr. L

        Good point LHathaway, you what they say, once you go black, you’re a single mom.

        • Anglokraut

          I said something along those lines, but in my own “colorful” way, and it way redacted by the admins. It would be nice if there were an official list of banned words and phrases. It’s a pain to have to guess.

    • NoMosqueHere

      Many white men worship black athletes and rappers. So they emulate nasty black male habits, such as substance abuse, nasty cursing, and beating up their wives and leaving them and the kids high and dry.

      • LHathaway

        Everyone does, to one degree or another. It’s the constant media attention on them as if they are all that is important and nothing else should be considered at all. In fact, that is exactly how it is. White’s and their concerns don’t exist. Are never mentioned at all. Whites don’t exist in this world outside their bad actions that are the cause of everyone else problems.

    • WR_the_realist

      It’s always easy to focus on the comparison of blacks vs. whites (whites always look better) but the reality is that the white family is in a state of drastic decline. The combination of feminism, media promoted “alternative lifestyles”, an ever growing state, and diminished economic opportunities have taken their toll.

      Blame the feminist movement for that.

      It is because whites are de-evolving and suffering dysgenics. It’s not only genetics going downhill but also culture as a traditional culture is replaced by cultural Marxism. Meanwhile people on this site seem convinced in the superiority of the white race or something.

    The liberal onslaught continues unabated. Single mothers have been glorified in movies, news articles, novels, TV and song for 50 years now.

    As Ann Coulter has pointed out, the leading cause of all social pathologies is single motherhood. It has more pronounced in black society since having children without fathers has become an entrepreneurial endeavor supported by liberal politicians and supported by taxpayers.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      The single mother is the exemplar of liberated post-modern woman. Instead of being owned by a man, the single mother uses a man, then discards him, and somehow manages to always be the victim. The single mothers’ lifestyle is the manifestation of liberal cultural attitudes.

        “The INTENTIONALLY single mother is the exemplar…”

        There, fixed it. Your nonspecific usage lumped in widows with minor children (sadly, that’s not uncommon in the military community) and women with minor children who are divorced because the husband wanted out even though she did not. Neither of these categories should be considered as “part of the problem.” And at least the kids are legitimate!

      Where’s Dan Quayle when we need him?

      • WR_the_realist

        Yes, I remember when Dan Quayle criticized the Murphy Brown show after Murphy Brown chose to become a single mother how he was laughed at and ridiculed by the pundits, mocking the notion that a fictional show matters. But of course TV nowadays has more moral authority than most churches. Only a liar or a fool could claim that TV doesn’t profoundly alter social mores.

        Consider the normalization of homosexuality. This was the result of a prolonged media campaign. In the 60s and early 70s no TV show had an openly homosexual character. Then they started to appear, always as intelligent, humorous, and non-threatening characters. Then we got shows like “Gay Eye For the Straight Guy”. And now in those house renovation shows on HGTV that mostly women watch about every fourth couple wanting a place to live is homosexual. The result — today you are regarded as a bigoted boor if you don’t favor homosexual marriage. Regardless of whether you believe this normalization of homosexuality was a good or a bad thing, you can’t deny that it happened and was led by the mass media.

        BTW, there is now a reality show about a polygmist. So we know what the next new “right” is going to be.

As for homosexuality, there were some sagacious souls who realized decades ago that it would eventually be accepted. How? The same way a few of us knew in high school, almost instinctively, that our education paled in comparison to that of previous generations: trajectory. If you know an asteroid’s trajectory, you can predict not only where it was years ago, but where it will be in the future. And so it is with cultural trajectory. […]”

    Can anyone supply the same statistics for Africans living in Africa? I think that they would be very similar. TNB in the U.S.; TNB in Africa.

    • Publius Pompilius Quietus

      Black people seem to be socially dysfunctional. Such an assumption is consistent with the data on black people in the USA. The data also shows that blacks’ dysfunction is not due to conditions within the state, because there are several black states (e.g., Liberia, Haiti, et al.) that are populated by descendants of American blacks and have their own government, but suffer all the same dysfunctions if not more. Blacks’ societal failures are due totally to themselves.

      • IstvanIN

        They are socially dysfunctional because they are not suited to our way of life. In Africa they would be living a tribal existence, living off the land for the most part, perhaps some small gardens tended to by the women and some hunting or cattle raising by the men. Life expectancy would be shorter, infant mortality would be higher but their population would be in check. As long as we stayed out and didn’t feed them, provide them with medicine or modern technology. In there natural state they would be perfectly happy and content dancing naked and living in the sun.

      • WR_the_realist

        There is marriage in Africa, but polygamy is common and adultery is expected. In some tribes a man’s inheritance goes to his sister’s children rather than to his own children, because he is sure his sister’s children share is genes (about 1/4) but he can’t be sure his wife’s children do.

        They have age old marriage practices along with the bride price. Of course white men have been influencing blacks directly or indirectly for thousands of years, so you may be correct regarding their original lifestyle.

    Two items:
    I. Not even their best recorded numbers hits even 2 in 5–why do we force Blacks to act like Whites. Their natural state is nothing at all like ours, and the more we delude ourselves into thinking that we are all the same, the longer this biological mistake called Multiculturalism will linger–like a lung infection.

    II. What is the endgame for this Marriage and Religion Research Institute? An abolition of divorce? Don’t see that happening any time soon.

    • LHathaway

      Well, in 1950 more black children had fathers in the home that white children have them in the home today.

      • The welfare state has driven fathers out of family homes. If LaTrine wants to collect the full slew of tax-funded benefits for baby Jamal, N’DeShitavious can’t live with her.

        We know we can do better–Blacks don’t see a need to measure up to Whites because they don’t follow the same rubric. It’s like being mad at Korn for not sounding like ABBA.

        • Garrett Brown

          Blacks can do better as well, far better. Have you even looked at marriage statistics through the times in this country? Pretty much all negroes got married pre 1970s and the high majority stayed married.

            Proof that culture can override both good and bad genetic tendencies if one is strongly influenced. Of course, we need to focus on improving white culture and white society, as the others should deal with their own.

          • Garrett Brown

            Very much agreed. In order to do that, people like anglokraut need to worry more about the white statistics in these studies than the other races.

  • pcmustgo

    I might become a single mother… I want a kid… I’m at “that age” and there’s no man in site… It’s not all my fault, I have some chronic problems that make me less desirable to most men… At this point I’m willing to share a man with another woman. I just don’t care anymore. Cozy illusions about marriage are gone for me. I made some bad choices, was clueless about dating and live in a city where single women are at a total disadvantage. I’m a smart white woman with good values and I feel I have as much right to breed as some 17 year old Black or Latina single mom who will wind up having 4. I just want one.

    • LexiconD1

      If you do that, just make sure you have a GOOD male roll model for your child, and they spend time with that male. They do need a male influence to turn to for a different perspective. Especially, if your child is a boy.

      • LHathaway

        I’ll disagree. The mother-son relationship is more important, just as the father-daughter relationship is of greater importance. Can white men even have a relationship with their daughter, though, in this day and age?

        • Alexandra1973

          Hardly, it seems. I remember there was a billboard, showed a man’s hand holding a little girl’s, with the caption “It makes me uncomfortable…” or some such nonsense. I never saw the billboard but I know it seriously ticked off men’s rights people, and rightfully so.

        • LexiconD1

          Hmm, well I though that those relationships went without saying. I have a close relationship with my father, much more so than I’ll ever, or ever did have, with my Mother. My Dad is the one who I told everything to, and did everything with, my Mom was mostly just there to complain about everything I did. She has a somewhat better relationship with my brother. Dad was the one who was there in the hospital when I was giving birth. He cut the cord. He held my son first. Something he didn’t get to do with his own children. Sorry for my nieces, but that alone made an imprint on him. My son became his little ‘buddy’ from then on. Having children is different than being a ‘Dad’. I know I’m lucky to have him. I almost lost him a few years ago to CHF, and he’s on the waiting list for a heart transplant (he might not need it now). My sons birth gave him new life…

      • Anna Tree

        I think both boy and girl need a dad. And a mom. “Men and women bring diversity to parenting; each makes unique contributions to the rearing of children that can’t be replicated by the other. Mothers and fathers simply are not interchangeable.”

      • Anna Tree

        I just read your story, I am sorry for what happened to you and your son, and it is obvious it is not your fault. Things happen in life, like your ex or a disease or accident, and you have obviously done a beautiful job with your son. I just think that it should not be voluntary unless there is no choice.

    • Anglokraut

      Hmm, it can be done…but you’ll need to take a hard look at your financials, so that you can cover the costs of buying top-drawer Nordic sperm and hormone treatments to spur ovulation. You could get four or five fertilized eggs this way, and just space them out every eighteen months, and if one or two don’t catch, you still have backups. You’ll also need to make sure that any future child or children will have a safe, nurturing home should you die unexpectedly, and for that you’ll need a family-and-friends support system in place. Do you have that kind of social support?
      And of course, I say go for it–so long as your “issues” aren’t genetic, there’s no reason why you couldn’t breed a good White baby.

      • Ella

        As long as pcmustgo has good enough health to raise the child alone with stability. You will be challenged and cannot enjoy the shifting of roles or schedules when it demands. For example, if you have the flu, your partner can cover for a while, including late nights. I think one child can be realistic, but you really have to think of the child’s needs. It’s a lesson for any parent.

    • IstvanIN

      Don’t “share” a man. That will bring nothing but heartache. If he is willing to cheat on his wife why would that make him a good father?

    • Luca

      If geography is your only problem then move. I child deserves two good parents, (a mother and a father). Anything less is a risk.

    • SentryattheGate

      I sympathize with you. Time gets away when you’re busy with life. Do the dating sites help? I had to beg my (late) husband to have kids (not unusual, I think). We were 37 and 39 when we had our son and daughter. He loved being a dad and I loved “having a second childhood”! But he died of cancer just a few years later. My kids are doing well, mostly, though they missed the blessings of having their father while growing up.

      • Ella

        I’m sorry to hear this. It is very hard to adjust after having the ideal family and marriage. You also know what people are really like with your experience now if chose to date later.

    • Sick of it

      I’m sure you could have a good old time if you moved into a kibbutz.

    • As you probably know genetics are more than 50% of the determinant for intelligence. I would definitely advise you to go for it. It’s going to be a little tougher as a single mom but also will be incredibly rewarding.

      We just have one son who’s 5 (a John-3, I’m John-2). We all went to the hospital as I had a stomach virus & they gave me an IV. When my son saw them put the IV in my arm he really went into a frenzy. You’d have thought they were were killing him. He kept saying “I don’t want that thing in my Daddy!” It was very endearing. Bright kids can have a lot of affection and be a joy to be around. They’re not without their tribulations in raising them tho…

      In an odd contrast I’m begging my wife to have a 2nd one but she think’s it’ll interfere with her career & lifestyle.

      • Anna Tree

        Argh, your wife…
        Does she think she will have a career & lifestyle when the white civilization will die because there are not enough Whites? Yeah I guess she doesn’t care because she doesn’t think it will happen during her time…

        I hope you can change her mind. Children and husband (and so race) are the most important thing in life.
        Work on John-3 to ask for a little sibling
        As you may know, I think a child need a married mom and dad… but I also think a child need brothers and sisters, at least one!
        It is also worth then to work on John-3 to want many children himself
        I talk to my kids gently about this already.
        Good luck John-2!

      • Ella

        I think whites should aim for more children overall. It seems from Eu studies that couples may discuss “I want two children and end up with only one child” or “I want three children” and stop at two, especially with a boy and girl. Life throws us all type of obstacles and challenges so family planning can fall less than desirable numbers as researched. It can be age, job problems, health, divorce and other reasons. I also have friends who practice law and have 3 kids. With good monies, people can afford extra assistance called a nanny.

    • Anna Tree

      I believe children, both boy and girl, need a mom and a dad (see my link in my post to LexiconD1 above.)
      That said, it doesn’t seem to be your fault, and we do need more white children…

      I wish you find a good white man (don’t stop looking, enroll everywhere you can, websites – I wish there was a white only dating web site, match makers, companies etc) but if not, like others here, I can understand you want a baby and wish you both all the best when it will happen. Don’t wait too long, younger ovaries the better (and younger sperm too, so choose that too.)

  • LexiconD1

    I have one child as a single parent. My ex decided to leave us when I was almost 5 months pregnant, after being together for 12 years. He told me, “I can’t handle the thought of being a parent right now” (and he never did)… I did the smart thing…I made sure my son had a good solid male influence, my Dad. Couldn’t think of anyone better for him. They spend time together, and have a strong bond. My Dad taught my son to shave, my son can go to him with questions he might be too embarrassed to ask me (although, “I” had the sex talk with him), and if you ask my son if he ever felt cheated not to have a Dad, He’ll tell you “no”. When he was little, kids would ask him where his father is, he’d tell them ‘he’s dead’, no prompting from anyone, just what he thought, at the time.

    My son is a great kid, loves his martial arts, bowling, does great in school. Parents, and teachers, always compliment me on him and his behavior. He’s never been in any ‘serious’ trouble. He’s just a great, well rounded kid, who’s going off to university (boy wont it be fun talking about how the schools trying to program him, we WILL laugh) next year. I’m so proud of him, and all his accomplishments.

    Kids don’t need both parents (I had a couple of friends raised by single Dads. As well as single Moms), but they need GOOD parents.

    • phillyguy

      Good for you.

      • LexiconD1

        The one promise I made to my son, that I think was important to me too, is that I remain single until he’s old enough to fend for himself. I get to start dating again, YAY, in about 7 months…

        I’ve seen far far too many women, and men, pick their ‘partners’ over their children, or be mean to their partners children, to do anything less for my son.

        • Garrett Brown

          You’re a very good mother, I appreciate you raising another white man the correct way.

        • Sick of it

          Remain cognizant of the fact that many men put on an act while dating and become a different person after you’re married. My mother found this out the hard way with her second marriage.

    • IstvanIN

      You were not a single parent, you were a divorced parent. There is a difference.

      That being said my wife died when my daughter was three. I was fortunate to have my parents, sister and sisters-in-law, and my daughter turned out great, she is successful and a great mother, but I will always have that nagging doubt in the back of my mind that I should have remarried. Having come from a two parent family not to mention my brother, sister and sister-in-law are all married with children I honestly think a mom and dad is the best way to go. A mom or dad can do it without the other but it is a much harder road.

      I will say that it is probably better to not have a bad parent in the home, which is what it sounds like you would have ended up with if your ex stayed. I can not imagine abandoning my child and that tells me right away your ex would not have made a good dad.

      Just a thought.

      • LexiconD1

        You were right.

        He went out and decide to become a junky (much to mine, and everyone who knows him, shock, and horror.) He’s spent most of the last 17 years in jail or prison, he’s still in awaiting being sentenced for his latest crime. His parents abandoned my son, as did the rest of his family. My son does have some medical issues (almost completely cleared up now), but for the most part he is very healthy, smart, and attractive, my ex and his family think he’s sitting around some institution wearing a helmet as he bangs his head, he was misdiagnosed as severely autistic, which he is NOT, the last time anyone from that side has seen him.

        Oh well, no great loss…they did, after all, ‘raise’ my ex…

        • IstvanIN

          Oh well, no great loss…they did, after all, ‘raise’ my ex… Good point!

          That amazes me as well, how do you abandon your grandchild? I will never understand that, either.

          • LexiconD1

            Beats me, I’d walk through fire to have a relationship with mine.

          • Sick of it

            The kind of people who raise a junkie are likely to abandon their children or grandchildren. I’ve seen too much of this in my neck of the woods. I would wager that his parents are at least alcoholics.

        • The autism “epidemic” is the result of over-diagnosis. Until the 1990s, a child had to meet all the classic criteria in order to be pronounced “autistic”. The medical profession changed the definition, so now a kid only needs to meet one of the criteria. Naturally this would result in an explosion in the number of cases. After a few years of blaming “mercury” in vaccines, thimerosal ceased to be used as a vaccine preservative (in the summer of 2000), but the numbers remain high, simply because the diagnosis of autism remains non-rigorous.

      Statistically they are better off with two good parents. Your father was a proxy father figure for your son. That is a good substitute. Too many times young men are raised by nothing but women and statistically speaking that is generally a recipe for disaster.

      • SentryattheGate

        I agree! Women are too often not firm enough with kids; they give in to be nice, so they will be “liked”. A dad should be around to defend mom from being taken advantage of by the kids, and to push the kids to grow up! My 2 sisters-in-law and I were all widowed young with young kids. Alas, the kids became kinda bratty and pushed us around.

        • Luca

          There is a certain balance in nature and having a mother and a father provides a contrast that promotes that balance.

  • Good article, but depressing. In other words, Western Society has become F’ed up since the Revolution of the sixties.

      • Ella

        Having large number of children slowly dwindles our middle-class household wealth; if you collect “free” monies, it increases the wealth of unmarried females. The government encourages out-of-wedlock births and penalizes financially traditional working families over the poverty line.

  • Guest

    I am not exactly sure if it is truly common around the country but, I have heard and read a few times that it truly is economically devastating for the husband when his wife files for a divorce and the court finalizes the exact details of the divorce settlement. He basically ends up living below the poverty line, and forever.

    • LHathaway

      Having an income below the poverty line is likely why his wife divorced him . . .

    • Speedy Steve

      Ironic, 80% of divorces are caused by money troubles. Most money troubles are caused by buying a house that’s too big. Young couples want to live like mum and dad, and are unwilling to live in a trailer or apartment. Everything’s OK until the kids come along.

      • Sick of it

        Since feminism, many men don’t make as much money as their wife. This can often lead to a divorce born of ill feelings toward the man, who cannot help changes to overall society.

        • Anna Tree

          Even if their husband makes more money, many women are still not happy. Consumerism, another liberal leftism dogma, is another nail in our civilization coffin, with feminism, the pill etc

          My husband and I live on a very tiny budget. We are savers though and we are more well off than many of those with big salaries who spend all they earn and more. We decided to work less to be more with our children. And so no restaurants, hotels, cinema, new clothes, one decent old car etc etc
          I learned a lot of this from my parents life style and I am already teaching my children this life style. I hope they will adopt it too.

          • Sick of it

            Sounds like we had a similar upbringing. I was taught to count every penny at the store, to keep up with even small change, to budget, and to do without unnecessary things at a young age. I learned even more in that area from being horribly underpaid when I started out in the workplace. There are times when one has to go without food but make their federally mandated student loan payment.

          • Anna Tree

            Exactly. I am teaching my children to buy only what they need and only with the money they have. Except the house but then to pay the mortgage with every penny so to pay it as fast as possible. Just doing this will save a family $100’000s and so instead of giving it to the bank as interests, it is better to work less and be with your children and spouse more.

    It is very important, if not essential, for children and younger teens to live under the guidance and care of both of her or his parents.

  • Capn Dad

    Yeah anyone surprised by this? Anyone? Didn’t think so.

  • Who Me?

    A child needs two parents, if only for the sake of the primary caregiving parents’ sanity! Any parent who has stayed home all day every day with a two-year-old knows this. When 6 pm rolls around you are ready to explode. Daddy walks in the door, it is such a relief to say, “The kids have been fed, your dinner is on the table–I’m OUT of here!” It doesn’t matter where you go, to a friend’s house for a cup of tea and some sort of conversation that doesn’t include baby talk and cartoons, or to the park to feed the ducks and be ALONE, or even just to the grocery store. You need to decompress. Now this doesn’t happen every day, or every week, or even every month, but there are days when you truly see why it’s a good thing to have a spouse.

    • cherrie greenbaum123

      I agree. Coming from a broken home myself, having parents that didn’t get along could be miserable at times. A couple doesn’t have to be Ozzie and Harriet in order to be good parents. Being there for your kids is what it’s all about. The father has been displaced from the home and in his place is Uncle Sugar, who is a predatory, lying misanthrope.

      • Who Me?

        My parents divorced when I was 9 months old. I never saw them in the same room together until I was 16 years old. The lengths they went to avoid seeing each other were absurd bordering on the ridiculous. For example if I wanted to see my dad. Mom had to take me to her parents house, (my maternal grandparents) who would then take me to my other grandparents house, (my paternal grandparents) and dad would then come pick me up from their place. By the time I was 10, dad said the heck with that whole elaborate charade. He would call, and if mom was gone, he’d come to the house to pick me up. I’d leave a note for mom. Unnecessary really, because with 6 younger siblings in the house they were more than happy to tell her that “She went with HER dad”. (Of course, they then pestered her with the usual questions of “Why don’t WE have dads to come get us?”) If mom was home, I’d meet dad down on the corner. I used to wonder what life would have been like if they had stayed together, but I couldn’t even begin to imagine such a scenario. When all was said and done though, mom never said a word against dad to me till I was 42 years old. (Can’t say the same for dad, though.) They both remarried several times after their mutual divorce, and all unsuccessfully. Each had a slew of other kids… I’m the oldest of 7 of my mom’s kids, the oldest of 4 of my dad’s kids–the only one they had together. So I have 9 younger (half) siblings. They apparently took the directive to go forth and multiply quite literally, just not together. Does anybody wonder why there are so many baby boomers? This may also explain why I got married at 17 and am still married to the same person over 40 years later. No way was I gonna repeat that circus for my children.

        • TonyWestfield

          Unforgettable paragraph. The complications involving parents and half-siblings, etc., were obviously difficult at times. Your parents did the world a favor, both genetically and culturally, by producing you. Did they do us a favor with the other nine?

          • Who Me?

            Thank you, what a nice thing to say. My siblings are all over the place, as far as political leanings. One of my two brothers (my father’s son) is nearly as racially aware as I, and of my seven sisters they range from “I don’t even want to hear about that” to various stages of “aware”. (At least none of us are Obama voters! That’s something.)

          • TonyWestfield

            Notwithstanding the variance in race-realism quotient from person to person, I’d say zero Obama voters out of ten is “a perfect ten.” Wish I could make the same claim about my conventional, intact family (not quite a Norman Rockwell portrait, but close) in which one of my siblings is largely sensible in social attitudes but never votes! Another of my sibs qualifies (along with spouse, two peas in a pod) as “politically correct liberal” and race un-realist, even though I could stand on their front lawn and literally toss a baseball onto the roof of the house that was the scene of a national outrage last year: If you google “Cypress Street nannycam” you may even recognize the story. Several versions of the video have been published; the ones with the sound intact really had me biting my nails.

          • Who Me?

            I remember seeing that on the news when it happened, but never heard any follow-up. Was the intruder arrested? Convicted? Sentenced? That a person can be sitting inside their own (locked) home and be attacked by a savage who steals from and terrorizes the woman and children during broad daylight is something that would not be believed a generation or two ago. (And when proven would be a nationwide outrage.)

          • TonyWestfield

            The perp was captured shortly after the incident. Turns out the guy has been in prison nearly half his 43 years on earth. In 1991 he did almost exactly the same thing in another nice suburb of Jersey (where residents are accustomed to feeling safe), but that time he threw both the mother AND the child, 18 months old, down the stairs, for which he was sentenced to 10 years and served less. Hard to believe, but today I don’t see anything on the internet to indicate that this ape has been sentenced. Last summer it was reported that the case was scheduled for trial in November, but media has nothing since then. The guy may be out on bail, walking the streets. Who knows? What I do know is that New Jersey was great when I was growing up, largely because most towns were segregated and the alarms went off the moment an element that didn’t “belong” showed up. Nowadays, but for a few exceptions, the towns are integrated enough that the urban criminals know EXACTLY where to penetrate next. Case in point, another of 2013’s most infamous crimes, four Black thugs did a carjack/murder at Short Hills Mall in the same town (Millburn) as the nanny cam atrocity. The mall is one of the fanciest in the USA, but the four diversity units, weaponized by the reparations mentality of Obama & Co., knew that they could target White shoppers but not get noticed, thanks to integration and political sensitivities that prohibit “profiling.”

    • I agree. Unfortunately we only have the one, whom I believe is very gifted. However they can be a handful. My wife & I are agreed on discipline methods so the little guy can’t effectively play the divide & conquer game. I can’t see how single parents can do it as the little ones will be incredibly persistant if they think they can get what they want.

      According to that 1938 Harvard Study which was referenced on AmRen abt 6 mos ago, fathers are very necessary to a child’s development.

    Getting blacks under control, stopping immigration, insisting that the president abide by the law, none of that will matter if this doesn’t reverse.

  • slobotnavich

    This entire black family destruction process began in earnest with LBJ’s so-called great Society Program of 1965. Prior to that disastrous liberal “feel good” social invention blacks had substantially the same percentage of fatherless families as whites – about 20%. Today the great majority of black kids don’t even know who their fathers are, and some don’t know who their mothers are. Naturally, the standard liberal formula is to demand more of the same in their typical doubling down on proven failure. In a rational world they’d be burned at the stake.

    • Roninf9

      ‘Prior to that disastrous liberal “feel good” social invention blacks had
      substantially the same percentage of fatherless families as white’

      Did you even read the article? Only 38% of black teens lived in a nuclear family in 1950! That’s 15 years before the Great Society and substantially less than the 67% of white teens. Stop trying to place the blame for black dysfunction, which has been a historic, permanent feature, on Whites.

      • slobotnavich

        I’m hardly trying to place the blame for black dysfunction on whites. The main reason for black “dysfunction” is markedly lower intelligence, on the order of twenty IQ points when compared with whites, 27 when compared with Northeast Asians, and nearly 40 when compared with the IQs of Ashkenazi Jews. This hardly means that blacks cannot live productive and contributing lives – they just won’t be equally represented among those occupations requiring the highest levels of intelligence. So what? You and yours likely won’t be equally represented with all those treacherous Jews among doctors, scientists, and top-gun lawyers – they’re simply smarter, on average, than we goyim. Applying this bizarre fantasy would require that we purge large number of blacks from professional sports. One of the great fantasies of 20th Century America, as represented by the verminous and corrupt LBJ’s Great Society Program of 1965, is that all races and ethnicities have been endowed with identical capabilities, intellect, character, and work habits. This is pure and self-evident delusion, though to dispute this can now get one prosecuted or at least ostracized from polite (or even impolite) society.

    I’d wager that they’d made all the gains that resulted from the end of Jim Crow and the beginning of welfare. They’ve reached their maximum.

    Articles like this always remind me of the prison library scene in The Longest Yard (the original, with Burt Reynolds as Crewe and Eddie Albert as the warden). One of the guards accosts a black player and asks him “You know why you people always call each other ‘brutha’? . . . Half of you don’t know who your fathers are, so you might actually be ‘bruthas’.” That was c. 1980; today that “joke” would be a gross understatement.

    “The fifth annual survey also charted when families appear to break up, typically over time and as their children get older. For example, 75 percent of white two-year-olds in 2012 lived with their biological parents, but by age 17, that was down to 52 percent.”

    This does not make sense. To demonstrate that “families appear to break up. . . over time and as their children get older”, you would have to measure the same cohort of 2-year olds at a later date, specifically in 2027 if you would like to use the 52% figure.

    I don;t give a flyin’ heck about the Blacks…water seeks its own level..
    The white number is a problem, however…This is about defining deviancy down.

    • Speedy Steve

      Lazy Whites always admired the slovenly ways of the African. The casual attitude to authority, easy sex, drugs, and boogie music. And then make-believe repentance when in front of the judge.

    • Who Me?

      When my daughter graduated from high school in 1994 the kids took an unofficial poll. Of over 200 graduates, exactly 4 were still living with both their original parents. This in a majority white school–with the rest being Hispanic. (No blacks at all.)

      From what I’ve heard, it’s photoshopped. But, like all satire, it’s an exaggeration of an underlying truth: that blacks have a comically huge sense of entitlement.

        How is your statement not equivalent to, ‘my racial intimidation on campus was a hoax, but it’s really “gonzo” true’?

        • Anna Tree

          Yes you are right. Although I will say that there is a little difference: in general there is no racial intimidation on campus while there are in general many crimes done by young black men.

          That said, there are enough evidence out there to photoshop/create untrue ones. So yes it is wrong and can be damaging.

    Bias call: There is no reason why families who adopt [a] child[ren] at birth should be excluded from the “traditional nuclear family” statistics. The child[ren] have never known any other parents; typically the parents haven’t raised any other children. It’s hard to believe (IMO) that [a] child[ren] whose adoptive parents really do stay married until death do them part is worth less to [a] child[ren] than biological parents who may not even be married in the first place and/or divorce/split up when the child[ren] still live at home.

    Golly gee, I wonder why that can be. But then a heart-warming story like this pops up in Wednesday’s fish wrapper:

  • Spikeygrrl

    I am not LDS, but all my extended family is (my late parents left the Church in the early 1950, before my birth).

    I would welcome plural marrIage, if it were ever to be re-legalized. I have written about this elsewhere at much greater length, but here are the basics:
    * Monogamy sexually frustrates even the best, most loving men because men are HARDWIRED to seek sexual variety. Plural marrIage provides that within the ethical boundaries of taking care of ALL his wives and children. Contrast that with today’s despicable “smash and dash” culture which has produced literally millions of bhazturds (sorry, just catering to the mods) and heartbroken women.
    * Plural marrIage frees women from the monogamous male expectation that she be all things to him at all times (just a few examples: devoted mother, more-or-less-equal wage earner, tiger in the bedroom, housekeeper and cook, psychological and logistical sounding board, keeper of the household budget…and on and on and on). NO ONE WOMAN CAN DO ALL THAT — at least for a long time — without working herself into nervous collapse! Sister-wives share the load by each taking on the tasks she enjoys and has genuine skill at, while tasks NOBODY enjoys are parceled out even handedly (or rotated).

    • Anna Tree

      Hi Sikeygrrl, my post to guest should have been to you:
      I am against polygamy because polygamy cannot exist without pedophilia: it’s mathematics: there is not enough women to have men marry more than one, so men will target the newer generations and marry younger and younger (and invent religions that allow it.)

      Also if you agree to polygamy because a wife cannot be all the things a man desire in life, then it’s a slippery slope because after all some of us women may desire a lot of things from their men, that are just too hard to achieve. Let’s see… devoted father, more-or-less-equal earner, okay better or unique earner, tiger and cat in the bedroom, cook, psychological, logistical hearing and sounding board, handy man of the house and so on…That too no one man can do all that, at least for a long time, without working himself into nervous collapse.

      Polygamy is also a fruit of our DNA, and it’s not very White or Asian, as per my understanding of an article posted in Nature:
      “The Bonobo Genome Compared with the Chimpanzee and Human Genomes”
      amren com/news/2014/04/the-bonobo-genome-compared-with-the-chimpanzee-and-human-genomes/#comment-1337256141
      and the second post

      But I do think some men are more promiscuous than women and most women are more inclined psychologically and physiologically to monogamy, and in general naturally retain longer their good looks than women and maybe more importantly don’t need to be with the young children as women do, and so can or wish to get away easier, and that is in a time in their life when they are younger.


      I am sorry, I don’t get it yet. Why do you write “marrIage” with a capital I?

      • Spikeygrrl

        Because this smartphone screen is too small to catch the difference while proofreading. Good catch — thank you!

        • Anna Tree

          No worries.

          Please tell me what you think about my claim that polygamy begets pedophilia: there is not enough women to have men marry more than one, so men will target the newer generations and marry younger and younger (and invent religions that allow it like islam.)

          • Spikeygrrl

            I haven’t forgotten you. Au contraire, I’ve been mulling over various complex answers. Until this morning, when Occam’s Razor smacked me upside the head.

            Legalitarian polygamy one begets “pedophilia” when practiced in an insular community subject to inflexible (e.g., religious) authority. Where polygamy is OPTIONAL — freely chosen — across a national or even international community of adherents, there is no reason except personal taste for men to choosee ever-younger women. And again, without a dictator of an insular population, young women can always say no.

            For the record, though, I personally believe that the legal age of consent to marry for should be set MUCH lower for women than it is currently.

            Some women, from a very early age, want nothing more than to be wives and mothers. They lollygag through high school, never caring about academics and always wanting to have unprotected sex. “If they’re old enough to bleed, they’re old enough to breed.”

            Why SHOULDN’T they have their way? “If they’re old enough to bleed, they’re old enough to breed.”
            It’s SO much better and safer to do this as a plural wife than as just another one-night notch on the bedpost of some unscrupulous “playah.”

            If these young women later change their minds aboUT education, they can always go BACK to school; online degrees are a great option for mothers who have small children at home.

    Your welfare benefits are severely cut if a woman marries the father of the baby which is why so many negroes have no father and of them, most don’t even know who their father is. Cut welfare to limit 2 children instead of giving them a pay/EBT increase, is the first step.

    • Ringo Lennon

      Black men don’t marry. This could be reason. Your right about two limit. Hispanics also abuse this welfare system.

    More than 80% of the divorces I’ve heard of in the tri-state area were initiated by women. In fact, with everyone I know who is divorced, the divorce was initiated by a woman (excepting 2 circumstances of abuse and adultery on the part of the woman). Guys aren’t big on divorce generally.

    • Anna Tree

      I agree. I sent Amren the following to post but they decided not to publish. (I understand: it is not really news nor race realism, but still, I think, that as long as white gender role and feminism, i.e. sex realism, is not tackle, race realism can suffer):
      www cbsnews com/news/fifty-shades-of-grey-raises-question-about-women-submissive-roles/?ftag=YHF4eb9d17

      I asked: “Does white race realism comes in hand with white gender realism? Is the traditional woman’s role in the white civilization submissive to her husband? Although of course, it is a battle, for me as well after a life long of brainwashing to the contrary, I think so. And it is as relieving as knowing the truth about race. And it doesn’t mean to be weak.
      If you [Amren] decide to publish that article about white women wanting their traditional role, here is the islamic version (not judging, just to compare):

      • Sick of it

        Agreed. Women should obey their husbands. Husbands should love their wives. Wouldn’t we all be happier than at present with all the nonsensical power struggles within the home? With the breakup of the home.

        And yeah, we shouldn’t hide our women under curtains. It just looks weird.

  • Sick of it

    I won’t excuse black tendencies, but black Americans were negatively influenced by Communists in the 1920s. Also, see the difference in white behavior since the culture war.

  • Sick of it

    We used to shame people into following the norm. As you have proven, it doesn’t work anymore. Especially with non-whites, who could care less.

    • Anna Tree

      An excellent article to support your point:
      “Bring Back Stigma” by Roger Scruton
      www city-journal org/html/10_4_bring_back_stigma html

      “It is now orthodox to regard social stigma as a form of oppression, to be discarded on our collective quest for inner freedom. But the political philosophers and novelists of former times would have been horrified by such a view. In almost all matters that touched upon the core requirements of social order, they believed that the genial pressure of manners, morals, and customs—enforced by the various forms of disapproval, stigma, shame, and reproach—was a more powerful guarantor of civilized and lawful behavior than the laws themselves. Inner sanctions, they argued, more dependably maintain society than such external ones as policemen and courts.”
      etc Very interesting and a source of great arguments.

      • Sick of it

        My best proof is the Old South. Before a certain point, divorce was unheard of, folks were extremely ashamed to have a child out of wedlock, etc. We did have prostitution, but being caught at it was a disgrace and could ruin a man socially. We weren’t entirely hypocritical, despite what liberals say.

    Extralegal, de facto plural marrIage is not yet an option for my family. DH is career military medical and has to pass another security clearance every few years. The screeners/investigators are almost inhumanly expert at ferreting out even the most inconsequential irregularities in one’s life. A dishonorable discharge, after over a decade of service (so far!) which has included multiple deployments, would be a financial disaster. 🙁

  • Anna Tree

    It is a shameful dangerous epidemic. I also acknowledge that most divorces around me were initiated by women.

    Since I have become aware of the causes and consequences, I am talking to as many women I can to make them realize how wrong divorce and the destruction of family values are (for children, society, men AND them.) It an easier debate than race realism, but still, so much indoctrination.

    I am trying to help an acquaintance acknowledge her mistake of initiating a divorce before it is too late (and the other mistakes even before they both made). It is a work in process to embrace the gender roles back, as the propaganda has been long and strong. Even for myself who now know better.

    Just 17 percent of black teens live with their nuclear family, another all-time low and down from 38 percent in 1950.

    38 percent in 1950? Conservatism, Inc. is always saying that it was LBJ’s Great Society that destroyed the black family unit. Why if it weren’t for welfare the black community would resemble Ozzie & Harriet and vote for the Party of the Great Emancipator.
