The Vanishing Black Father

I’m not even talking about the frightening statistics; I’m talking about the media ignoring black fathers:

“The War on Drugs Is What Makes Thugs,” John McWhorter, Daily Beast, 8/21/14:

And right or left, anyone who has ever been a parent—or even been a child, which I presume we all have—knows that the solution to the problem is not simply that black mothers need to tell their boys not to be thugs. Who thinks they don’t do that already?

“Is CNN ignoring the fact that Michael Brown has a father?” Twitchy, 8/25/14:

CNN keeps mentioning the mother grieving, but forget that he has a father, too.

Fatherless black children are apparently the new norm. Now tell me again how deeply the Left cares about blacks.
