CDC: Black men better
fathers than white men

American Thinker, by Ed Straker

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/2/2018 9:55:24 AM

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which I affectionately refer to as the Diseased Centers of Control, have conducted a study showing that black men make better parents than white men. The study, conducted in 2013, came to light in a recent Washington Post article on the Post´s favorite topic – you guessed it! – of racism. The study was conducted by the CDC´s Division of Vital Statistics, centering on how involved fathers are in the lives of their children. It found the following: 1) Thirty-five percent of white fathers who don´t live with their children do not eat meals

After enumerating in bullet point fashion the points the CDC comes up with, Straker plants his tongue firmly in his cheek and lists, in similar fashion, how these deficiencies in white fathering might be mitigated.

The saving grace of the report could be that black mothers work, sometimes 2 jobs while the fathers do not work even one. Maybe this is only evident where I live.

Well there goes any credibility the CDC had.

You can believe what you see and experience daily or the CDC issued ´report´.

Maybe it´s from one of those over-educated (no common sense) academics that doesn´t know April Fools Day is April 1st - Not Jan 1st.

The methodology the CDC used is suspect because the universe of black men not in prison and agree to be polled may be VERY small.

They had to do something to keep us from connecting bad policy to violence. Take the lack of fathers off the table then the crime is all caused by evil white racism. Isn´t that convenient.

CDC defines ´better fathers´ as males who fertilize a female, then leave.

Example: Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville, Tennessee (photo shows he is black) who fathered 30 kids with 11 different women...... then asked the Courts for relief from having to pay so much child support.

link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2146545/Man-fathered-30-kids-11-different-women-says-needs-break--child-support.html


.....Or the article about the Desmond and two others of his ilk (not mentioned in the article, but photos show they are all blacks) whose sperm produced EIGHTY ONE children with FORTY SIX different women..... and are paying NO child support to ANY of them.

Link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2159476/Tennessees-deadbeat-dads-The-men-81-children-46-different-women--theyre-paying-child-support-them.html

Overall the black rate of illegitimacy is what.... 77%?

I would guess that Black men don´t beat their children as much as White men. Mainly because if they started to hit one of their kids, a prison guard would stop them.

The CDC´s racially tagged conclusions may be based on self-selecting "polls" that are the complete opposite of randomly sampled polls. As such, they are not worth the paper they´re written on.

In any case, why is the CDC engaging in identity politics? Diseases don´t know identity.

Kudos for Sheriff David Clarke for reminding us of the double standard practiced by the self-righteous guardians of social justice such as Starbucks, who flagellate themselves in public over the injustice of denying non-paying patrons use of their facilities – patrons who happen to be black: Not too long ago a Philadelphia Starbucks refused to let a police officer use the restroom telling him it was for paying customers. Don´t remember Starbucks closing 8000 stores for sensitivity training toward police. In 2015, an unnamed Philadelphia police sergeant entered a downtown Philadelphia Starbucks and asked to use the restroom. He might have been

Two apparent concessions from Pyongyang are boosting the chances of success for President Trump’s initiative to strike a “deal” that we would de-nuclearize the Korean Peninsula and possibly even lure North Korea out of its status as a rogue nation, cut off from the outside world and shunning the norms of international relations. This would be a major triumph not just for Trump, but for America. Meanwhile, Senate Democrats are doing their utmost to rebuke and disempower the point man in achieving those concessions by obstructing CIA Director Mike Pompeo’s nomination as Secretary of State.

If President Trump could hand-select his 2020 Democratic opponent, he could do no better than former Obama attorney general Eric Holder, the only Cabinet official held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents in the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. He is the poster child for the Deep State corruption that festered under Obama and the politicization of both the DOJ and FBI.

The label “Nixonian” is not a compliment, despite the many foreign policy accomplishments of the 37th president. And that adjective now will surely be attached to the reputation of James Comey for the rest of his days and beyond. Just as Richard Nixon’s most famous words are “I am not a crook,” James Comey’s most famous words inevitably will be those revealed in the memos he leaked to the New York Times through a cut-out: “I don’t leak. I don’t do weasel words.” (snip) Where are his media and political defenders going to go to escape derisive laughter?

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey isn´t quite the book bonanza he´s been touted as. His book opening shows it. And, well, look at the book he´s selling: with little more than florid descriptions to speak for his otherwise content-free book, and no big revelations, what we get from it is that he has a high opinion of himself, he´s mad about getting fired, and he wants revenge. Yeah, yeah. And as the subject of his own book, he lacks the usual affection bestowed upon such people from the rabidly left-wing Occupods or the less rabid Hillaryites, because,

New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book on Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, and one anecdote in particular from it was getting attention on Friday. It's from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to "Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager," per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton "didn't seem all that surprised," writes Chozick. Then the key Clinton quote: "'I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,' she said, now within

Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.
