Studies show that Blacks are two times less likely to get married, compared to Whites and Asians, and one time less likely, compared to Hispanics. Also, Blacks are two times more likely to get divorced, than Whites and Hispanics. Why is the true? In 1900 80% of Blacks were comprised of two parents, compared to in the year 2000, only 40% of Black children lived in married households. Why?? What are some things that you see, that's plaguing the union of Black men and women? What do we attribute it to? This topic is important to me, because I feel that there's a direct correlation to what Black kids deal with, without having two readily parents to help resolve problems. Last week we discussed the reponsibility to our community and saving the youth. Tune in to "Darryel's Daily Dialogue....where positive words, manifest positive action."
