              Why are there so Many Single Mothers in Americia?

There are black single mothers because black men are not stepping up to the plate. Meaning that most of them have not taken the initiative to better themselves so how could they possibly provide for a household? Rather than wait for a man to get it together, black women have no choice but to keep it moving and take up the slack, so that their children will not be without. The other side is, that those men that are doing the right thing are often denied access to their children because the mother will try and use the children as pawns in order to get back at the father.

My observation has been that our generation does not seem to value commitment the way that prior generations did. We seem to think in terms of our individual well-being rather than keeping the family unit together. I believe that if we restored a sense of value to family and the well-being of our children, we would start to see less children grow up in single parent homes.

Relationships have ceased to be relationships. They are mere exchanges. Men and women are now in it for what they can get out of it. For some women, that’s become as simple as extra money needed for stability. For some men, that’s as simple as having one’s s****l needs satisfied. That’s good Wild Kingdom stuff, but it in no way leads to a lasting and loving relationship. There is no tie that binds, just “What can you do for me?” and “What have you done for me, lately?”So, of course, both parties eventually go their own way. “On to the next one” inevitable leaves single mothers to go it alone.
