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.

Jordan Peterson, the Canadian clinical psychologist, is having an enormous impact on our culture. His refusal to use legally mandated language has reverberated around the world. He is obviously rattling leftists as they continue to make hysterical claims about him. The most recent and long-winded example comes from Nathan J. Robinson, the editor of Current Affairs. He published an almost twelve-thousand-word essay in that journal. It´s hard to believe, but even with all those words he lands not a single blow on Peterson. He does manage to make a complete fool of himself. His essay begins by listing an impressive group

In his response to his firing, McCabe lied again, ignoring his multitude of offenses only to whine about persecution by a vindictive President Trump: For the last year

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

Congressional Black Caucus members want the bombings in Austin, Texas, to be classified as “terrorist attacks” — and are calling on officials to determine whether they are “ideologically or racially motivated.” While the two young men injured in the most recent blast are both white, all of the other victims have been either black or Hispanic. “We cannot stand idly by while our communities are under attack,” reads a statement from the concerned Black Caucus members — which include Chairman Cedric Richmond, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) and Homeland Security Committee Ranking Democrat Bennie Thompson, of Mississippi
