THE CAUSE & SOLUTION 👇AFTER INTEGRATION!🤔
Today the overwhelming majority of black children are raised in single female-headed families. As early as the 1880s, three-quarters of black families were two-parent. In 1925 New York City, 85 percent of black families were two-parent. 👇BEFORE
• In the 1890s, there were four public high schools in Washington D.C.; one black, the M Street School/Dunbar High School, and three white. In 1899, Dunbar averaged higher standardized test scores than students in two of the three white schools. From 1870 to 1955 Dunbar repeatedly equaled or exceeding performance on national standardized tests.
In 1904, the first African -American Greek Secret Society was formed in Philadelphia, by Dr. Henry • As late as 1910 more than two-thirds of the black population of Chicago lived in neighborhoods where most residents were white. • In 1950, 72 percent of all black men and 81 percent of black women had been married. • Every census from 1890 to 1950 showed that black labor force participation rates were higher than those of whites. • Prior to the 1960’s the unemployment rate for black 16 and 17-year olds was under 10 percent. • Before 1960, the number of teenage pregnancies had been decreasing; both poverty and dependency were declining, and black income was rising in both absolute and relative terms to white income. • In 1965, 76.4 percent of black children were born to married women.
So what changed the equation?
By the 1960s, American society was riddled with generations of “white guilt.” In reaction and repentance sparked by Dr. King’s nonviolent civil disobedience and the systemic introspection of social norms by whites, Americans overcompensated with sweeping entitlement programs under President Johnson’s “War on Poverty,” and by turning a blind eye to accountability on longstanding values and principled behavior within the African American community.
