Today, 28% of white children are born to a single mom.. 50% of Hispanic children are born to a single mom. 71% of black children are born to a single mom( Juan Williams calls that number chilling, disorienting). There is an NFL running back with 9 kids by 9 different women. In 1960 the numbers were 3% for white children, and 24% for black children. I am sure I will hear some anecdotal story on how a mother raised terrific children by herself but children of single moms as a whole do poorer in all ways. We sort of popularize single parenthood as OK, but its not, per the stats. Why is it OK now?
