What Brent Staples doesn’t seem to understand

is that it isn’t white racism that is stalking young black men. It’s black dysfunction. It’s 15-year old girls having babies without ever having husbands. It’s men who are fathers, but only biologically. In the entire recorded history of our planet, there has never been a greater voluntary abandonment of children than there is now by black men in America. More than 70 percent of black kids grow up without fathers in the house.

It’s a short but all to predicable leap from fatherlessness to hoodies and baggie pants and menacing demeanors and worse. That’s what Brent Staples ought to be worried about.
But if he was, he wouldn't be the RWPP jackass he is, and he'd be out of a job at the NYEffingTimes.
