The primary “events” in black history most often highlighted during Black History Month include slavery, segregation, civil rights demonstrations and Martin Luther King.
But there is another tragic part of black American history being made right now that is rarely discussed, and cannot be blamed on racism or discrimination.
It is the self-destruction of the black family.
The Washington Examiner reports that “a comprehensive survey of U.S. Census data finds that the nuclear American family, where both biological parents are at home, is in meltdown, with blacks teens being hit especially hard with less than 2-in-10 15-17-year-olds living with mom and dad.”
The study, prepared by the Family Research Council’s Marriage and Religion Research Institute says just 17 percent of black teens live with their nuclear family, an all-time low and down from 38 percent in 1950.
“FRC Senior Fellow Bishop E.W. Jackson, addressing the situation with black teens, said, “The crisis, one related directly to marriage and the role of the church, has social and moral dimensions which have created an accelerating downward spiral — children raising children; young men looking for affirmation of manhood through gangs, violence and fathering children without taking responsibility for them.”
“Jackson added that churches need to step up and help: “The black church, still a major influence in the lives of many, has failed to address this downward spiral.”
Of course, that’s only for the children who make it through birth.
In Georgia in 2010 for example, black babies were aborted at a rate nearly 2.5 times greater than white babies, according to CNS News. While whites outnumber blacks 2-to-1 in Georgia, 53.6 percent of all abortions were among black babies.
But the situation is far more dire than that.
On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States. For reference, according to the FBI there were about 33 homicides each day across the United States in 2013. That’s right, only 33. Which means there are 5,685% more black babies aborted by their mothers every day then there are homicides in the entire nation.
It has been estimated that since 1973, approximately 16 million black babies have been aborted.
The entire US black population is not quite 40 million. A generation has been destroyed. This is genocide, but it is self-inflicted.
Margaret Sanger’s grand plan for eugenics is a grand success. It is progressives who fight most passionately for the policies and “freedoms” to allow this ethnic cleansing to occur. And conservatives are supposed to be the racist ones?
