There is no life without a mother.  But can you continue throughout life without a mother or a motherly figure.  We often praise the great things mother's do and have done for the world.  However, it is taboo in the black community to condemn  a black mother regardless if their situation towards their children's upbringing is good or bad.  Why is it taboo for us not to call out these bad mother's in the black community?  Why are we taught to praise black mother's in the black neighborhood without evaluating what they truly bring to the table for the rearing and development of the child? Is it wrong for a mother to claim the responsiblity of a child becoming successful when someone else raised the child? In our community, why are we so quick to denounce a father not taking care of his responsibilities when some of these mother's do not follow through with their own responsibilities of the child? With the generation of grandmother's and mother's becoming younger, are their priorities still the same as our predesessors?
