Children in single-parent families by race

Definitions: Children under age 18 who live with their own single parent either in a family or subfamily.In this definition, single-parent families may include cohabiting couples and do not include children living with married stepparents. Children who live in group quarters (for example, institutions, dormitories, or group homes) are not included in this calculation.

Data Source: Population Reference Bureau, analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau, Census 2000 Supplementary Survey, 2001 Supplementary Survey, 2002 through 2019 American Community Survey.The data for this measure come from the 2005 through 2018 American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS, fully implemented, is designed to provide annually updated social, economic, and housing data for states and communities. (Such local-area data have traditionally been collected once every ten years in the long form of the decennial census.) Race/ethnic groups represented in this table are not mutually exclusive. The category of white includes only non-Hispanic white. The categories Black or African American, American Indian, and Asian and Pacific Islander include both Hispanic and non-Hispanic. Those in the Hispanic or Latino category include those identified as being in one of the non-White race groups.

Here are some of the biggest reasons for single mothers (all races), and what must be reversed to fix single motherhood:

1. Welfare takes care of children without Fathers
2. Feminism
3. The destruction/dismantling of the nuclear family structure, to be replaced by the Government family structure
4. Child support system
5. The entitlement of women to turn away good men
6. The destruction of marriage, by making it very difficult to get married to the side effects of marriage laws
7. Demasculinization of men
8. The acceptance of single motherhood in culture as normal

Single mothers take credit for when the child becomes successful but never when the child do bad.

A majority of African American children are brought up by a single parent, usually a teenage mother. Two-thirds grow up in low-income families with less than the minimum amount of income needed for the necessities of life.

Here’s a perfect documentary about this issue:

About 64% of black children are born out of wedlock. That means only 36% are getting married before having children. But wait, about 70% of the marriages end in divorce. That leaves you with about 8.7% of black people getting married before having kids AND staying married.

Good luck with that.

Single parenthood is almost glorified in U.S. This is a true public health crisis that impacts children and needs to be addressed.
