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.

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.

Dramatic video of gang armed robbery

The locally oriented website CWBChicago provides a valuable instructional video its readers in fashionable, upscale Chicago neighborhoods who (quite realistically) fear the ongoing predation by gangs running rampant elsewhere in the city, making it the murder capital of America. A compelling security camera video released by the Chicago Police Department depicts a gang driving into Wicker Park – an expensive area with great shopping attracting many pedestrians (and a Hollywood film named after it) – and carrying out an armed robbery on a pedestrian. The video is provided as a way for residents to minimize their danger: One of the best ways

Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health.

The Democrats and their media allies did everything they could to defeat Trump´s tax cuts and reforms. They continually lied to the public in a bid to make them believe that less than half of the taxpayers would actually get cuts and that the bill was meant to benefit only big, rich corporations. Therefore, we got all sorts of articles, obviously fed to journalists by left-wing think-tanks and Democratic politicos, claiming that the tax cuts aren´t good or aren´t performing as promised. So, two weeks into a ten-year program, we are now hearing whining that all the promises of the broad-based

An excellent op-ed in the LA Times today by Kerry Jackson on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America." (snip) From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for this

Our first step in responding to the fake news firestorm about what Trump did or didn´t say about some African countries is to figure out what Trump actually said. Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it´s not irrational to question that Democrat´s veracity. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew

Note to Fusion GPS: If you´re going to mouth off to the media and ignore the public record, you´d better be prepared to have your confidential documents subpoenaed. That´s the takeaway from last week´s ruling by Judge Richard J. Leon, district court judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denying Fusion GPS´s request for a preliminary injunction against TD Bank. The injunction would have stopped the bank from complying with a subpoena for bank documents served by the House Intelligence Committee relating to the oppo research firm´s financial transactions with media and political clients from the period

It´s a shocking claim made by a political insider: the Deep State is so opposed to draining the swamp that it will, if necessary, kill President Trump to prevent it. Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, certainly knows his way around Washington, having worked as a senior campaign aide to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Senator Bob Dole as well as having held many other political positions. This proximity to the Deep State is what makes his claim, expressed in a recent wide-ranging interview with The New American magazine´s Alex Newman, that much more eyebrow-raising.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era.

In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame.
