Obama on black fatherhood: "responsibility doesn’t just end at conception.” "Too many fathers are MIA. Too many fathers are AWOL,” “What makes you a man is not the ability to have a child — any fool can have a child. That doesn’t make you a father. It’s the courage to raise a child that makes you a father.” "They've abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men.” “We know that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households, a number that has doubled — doubled — since we were children. We know the statistics — that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime, nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home, or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it.” Strange how your feelings coincide with Obama's so much.
