Bad news for America
"For the first time, minorities make up a majority of babies in the U.S., part of a sweeping race change and a growing age divide between mostly white, older Americans and predominantly minority youths that could reshape government policies.
Preliminary census estimates also show the share of African-American households headed by women -- mostly single mothers -- now exceeds African-American households with married couples, a sign of declining U.S. marriages overall but also of continuing challenges for black youths without involved fathers."
A double whammy. First a decrease in the population that has a work ethic and second a population growning up without supervison and one that feels entitled to special treatment. It's not the color of their skin that is the problem it's the color of their politics.
America is going to fail because it's being over run by 3rd world ideas and ideals. It wasn't people living in those countries that are now invading the US that created the ideals of freedom and the concept of capitalism. They have been content with dictators and a subsitance existence. They refuse to learn our language and they refuse to become real citizens.
In short they aren't willing to participate in America they just want to live here and off the labor of others. The standard line is that there are more whites on welfare than minorities but when you look at the numbers they are very close yet the minorities only make up about 24%. It isn't that they are lazy or stupid it's the constant drum beat of liberals telling them that they aren't getting a fair shake.

I'd venture to guess they'd find the same data if they did the research on welfare families. I don't think race really has a lot to do with it. Education levels and such make a lot more difference than color of skin. Just like what the movie Idiocracy was alluding to, the less educated less fortunate tend to have more offspring and more single parent families.

You haven't been out of you home much lately. In Washington D.C. most of the people in government are minorities. In California the majority of people are what you could term minorities if it wasn't for the fact that minorities are a majority. The reason that companies don't hire in some cases is because some groups of minorities don't have a real education.
When you have 3 people standing in line for a high tech job you know that if one of them is a certain minority that person didn't have to achive the same grades in school to get through. I have a friend that worked for an Asian company and the owner got quite a few breaks because he was from the righ Asian country. One of the workers there wasn't from the right Asian country and he didn't get the same opportunity from the US government.
It isn't skin color that makes a person smart or stupid it's liberalism.

Half of fathers have kids out of wedlock as American dads' roles diverge this Father's Day
Nearly half of American dads under 45 this Father's Day say they have at least one kid who was born out of wedlock. And the share of fathers living apart from children is more than double what it was not so long ago.
In encouraging news, though, among married fathers, children are said to be getting more attention from both parents at home than ever before.
The Pew study, entitled "A Tale of Two Fathers," found sharp differences based on race and education. Black and Hispanic fathers were much more likely to have children out of wedlock, at 72 percent and 59 percent, respectively, compared to 37 percent for white men. Among fathers with at least a bachelor's degree, only 13 percent had children outside marriage, compared to 51 percent of those with high school diplomas and 65 percent of those who didn't finish high school.
Age, too, was a factor. Three-fourths of fathers who were 20 to 24 had children out of wedlock, compared to 36 percent for fathers 35 to 44.
The findings come as the latest census data show that marriages have fallen to a record low, pushing the share of U.S. households with married couples below 50 percent for the first time. Sociologists say younger people are increasingly choosing to live together but delay marriage as they struggle to find work and resist making long-term commitments.
