Quote of the Day – Bernie Goldberg

To set this up: Brent Staples is a columnist for the NYT. He’s also black. Goldberg takes issue with Staples assessment that seeing 3 young, hooded, baggy pants black boys on a subway creates fear in the RACIST minds of ALL white people.

What Brent Staples doesn’t seem to understand is that it isn’t white racism that is stalking young black men.  It’s black dysfunction.  It’s 15-year old girls having babies without ever having husbands.  It’s men who are fathers, but only biologically.  In the entire recorded history of our planet, there has never been a greater voluntary abandonment of children than there is now by black men in America. More than 70 percent of black kids grow up without fathers in the house.
