It is natural that a father will be very emotionally attached to his children. In fact our emotional connection in our children's life is often used as a weapon by angry women in association with the state and their laws. So, as a man, I never quiet understood the claim that black fathers are absent, especially when I personally had a good relationship with my father, though I always sense an undertone coming from my mother which encourages a less positive relationship with my father. This system is basically exerting a negative promotion of men; this attitude towards men will eventually bring down the family structure and eventually bring down the country.
According to the CDC, dads are just as hands-on when it comes to raising their children. More specifically, black fathers are more involved with their children on a daily basis than dads from other racial groups. The myth about black fathers was a systematic effort to bring down the black community by demonizing any positive attributes about black fathers. But, numbers don't lie and if we want the truth, the mainstream media must not be taken seriously. As per D.J. Trump, its fake news folks.
Our morale principals are antithetical to the picture that the mainstream media would like the world to believe about us. Moreover, black folks are generally more conservative then the perceived negative liberal, anything goes philosophy being shown to the world. Once we begin to take a clear look about ourselves and who we are as a people, we will quickly take our proper place in the world again.
In an additional research by the PEW 67 percent of black fathers who don't live with their children see them at least once a month, compared to 59 percent of white dads and just 32 percent of Hispanic dads.
The above paragraph shows the level of effort exercise by black fathers, so they may be involved in their children's life - you can't fake those numbers. Why is this not being promoted in the mainstream media? (fake news?).
I would also like to say a few words about Ex-President Obama as he often told us that he is was not the president of Black America but all of America, as if African American were not part of America. In my opinion, Obama used the black men ain't shit narrative to gain popularity among black women and white America. Black men ain't shit is a very lucrative business and can put you in the white house.
The good news is, this myth is actually being dissected and will eventually be destroyed as more black men are letting their voices heard through the different social media outlets.
