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.

#10 makes a good point.

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.

It is a huge scandal that the vast, frightening surveillance powers of our intelligence agencies, normally forbidden from snooping on American citizens, were used to spy on a presidential campaign antagonistic to the sitting president. Far too slowly, the underlying documents that permitted this are coming to light. Last night, 412 pages of heavily redacted versions of the original FISA warrant and subsequent renewals used to spy on Carter Page (and others – see below) were released.

The bestselling computer game of 2018 is called Far Cry 5.

In a related story, a group of mostly teenage girls have formed a group with the doomsday-ish name "Zero Hour" because of their conviction that global warming is soon to destroy the world.

The Mueller special counsel investigation was launched to probe charges that the key FBI officials developing evidence in the case thought were baseless. That’s a bombshell accusation that appears to have been confirmed by lovebird-turned-songbird Lisa Page, according to John Solomon.

Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 officers of the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency, was purely for domestic propaganda purposes. The case was never intended to come to trial because it was presumed by Mueller that Russia would never extradite its own intelligence officers, and thus no holes would be poked in the purported evidence by defense counsel. (snip) Of course, anybody with half a brain would see that once the United States legitimizes criminal indictments of foreign intelligence officers in this way, other nations would apply the same logic to our own intelligence operations. And the former US Ambassador to

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

DUBAI - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned U.S. President Donald Trump about pursuing hostile policies against Tehran, saying “America should know ... war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” but he did not rule out peace between the two countries, either. Iran faces increased U.S. pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear program. Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” the state new agency IRNA reported. “America should know that

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange
