It takes two parents

Not a village. Not a community organizer.

George Will explains some numbers to a puzzled Harvard prof: For black children, daunting divides in achievement and family life. And this:
Now, from the Educational Testing Service, comes a report about "The Black-White Achievement Gap: When Progress Stopped," written by Paul E. Barton and Richard J. Coley. It examines the "startling" fact that most of the progress in closing the gap in reading and mathematics occurred in the 1970s and '80s. This means "progress generally halted for those born around the mid-1960s, a time when landmark legislative victories heralded an end to racial discrimination."
It's the institutionalized victim mentality.

And perhaps Professor Glazer should revisit the writings of his late colleague Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Circa '66.

Big Government is a lousy spouse and parent. It's institutionalized child abuse.

More than any other issue, this is why I left the Democrat party. A pernicious, ignorant, elitist pile of crap.
