Obama tells black fathers to step up - Barack Obama News - MSNBC.com
Great. And people want this guy to be "our" President? Last I saw, absentee/deadbeat fathers was not a problem exclusive to blacks.
I guess white daddy's can do whatever they please.
that part i like is that they will get a tax deduction for helping their kids out....with child support....
seems you will be better off not working...not being a citizen and not being responsible under the preacher's administration.....
the truth isn't always popular. heck, you don't even care about the truth. this will not divide us. million man march to the voting lines. obama is money! why do you like mccain?
Shit, my daughters are both in their 20s and I STILL end up supporting them.
to whom are you speaking.....
you conservatives love to project what you are on others. you said ppl would be better off not being citizens, not working and not responsible under a preacher? something to that afect? assuming you mean under obama and the dems? ha! under gop, corporations moved their hq's of shore to avoid taxes, so not being a citizen, then you said not working. and ppl that don't work made out under bush. and you can't pretend chaney,delay,foley, vetter,rove, boehner,mcbush are really religious? well if you take the bible literally you do have blind faith so I guess.....
I don't see anything wrong with the message. He's black so obviously he wants to help out the black community. Big surprise!
Except he has been making a big deal about race not mattering. Me thinks this is an attempt to woo enlightened middle class hicks to his camp by showing he is willing to "sound off" on his own people.
He is right but it is calculated. What worries me more is the "lay off my wife" remark.
I think its a pretty brave speech.
I'll agree with the family values conservatives on this one. Something like 2/3s of black kids don't have their fathers around, a far higher rate of incidence than in any other ethnic community. And this surely is a reason, if not the primary reason, why crime is higher, poverty is higher, education is lower, etc. in the African-American community.
