At first glance, the title of this thread appears to indicate that my intention is to imply that the sole reason for the destruction of the black
community is the enactment of liberal policies coupled with feminism alone. This is not the case. A person’s action is the result of a person’s
choice. My intent is to show that the root cause of African Americans’ (in particular) degenerative state came at the embracement of liberal
policies, which them lead them to adopt unproductive lifestyles.
It has long been held that the demise of the once strong-knit black community is a direct result of slavery. This is a lie long propagated by many
liberals. However, Slavery DID NOT create the trend of broken families and it did not involve the support of destructive behavior.
Immediately after slavery, black families outnumbered whites and other ethnicities in the number of married couples,to include nuclear families. With
reconstruction, blacks began to attend college, send their own children to college, own businesses, teach, practice medicine, law, and even held seats
in Congress. This is all credited by Republican politicians who sought to not only end slavery, but extended the Right to Vote to blacks. Making
this connection, blacks voted Republican hands down, adopting Conservative ideologies, such as aiming to become independent and living a Protestant
lifestyle. This included being married before having children, not abusing drugs and alcohol, and had strong work ethics. Fundamentally, they
understood the importance of having the man in the home and as head of his household. It allowed the woman to be as nature intended her to be:
feminine, nurturing, and domestic.
But then, blacks began to switch political parties ....
During the 1950’s and 1960’s, heated race relations in the United States created a boiling pot of political turmoil. Both President John F.
Kennedy and Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. had been assassinated, bringing racial tension to a boiling point as most of Americans saw both
assassinations as a threat to any Civil Rights movement advancement. The nation was experiencing a great deal of policy changing, as the reach of
government grew larger and the Constitutional values got smaller....
And then came feminism.
Feminism refers to the sentiment that white women felt as they regarded their men (husbands, etc.) as becoming more successful than them with unequal
pay. They felt “inferior’ to the white male because they were not able to hold all of the same job positions and even some political statuses as
men, and felt a political and social movement was in order to gain this equal footing. Black women, striving to be like their white counterparts,
were essentially 'duped' into believing that their men were controlling them and thus joined this movement....
Sadly, it was not intended for them.
Even after slavery, but before feminism and welfare, families were intact with both the father & mother to raise their children who all worked
together to form a healthy team. Men went out to work and provided for the rest of the members, while women stayed home and nurtured babies, cleaned
the home, and prepared the meals while providing a natural balance to the flow of a family. Instead, with the rise of feminism, women compete against
men for jobs and because of this, they are expected to work 40 or more hours per week, leaving babies and young children needing to be reared by
nannies or daycare centers, rarely-cleaned homes, and no one home to prepare the meals. Teamwork died. When the woman came home from work, no one
was there to help her with the children, and there was usually no time to prepare a good hearty meal. McDonald’s soon became the meal of the
Women, before feminism, relied on traditional values and beliefs. Children did not attend daycares very young, to allow their mothers leave their
homes and be part of a workforce. Naturally, that was a man’s job. They understood that men needed to be supported and needed; essentially, that
was the "woman’s job", so-to-speak. They supported their men not just sexually, but emotionally. Feminism came in and made the man feel weak, and
unwanted. How can he go out into the world and be motivated to provide if he doesn’t feel needed at all? Its’ natural for him to feel needed.
This duo is the essence of a natural balance.
Feminism was also stated to help usher in the overgrowth of the welfare state.
According to liberals and feminists, the fundamental reasoning for poverty was that it was simply an economic problem. They assumed that poverty
victims simply lacked the resources of wealth in the form of capital. Supply them with long term funding, and poverty magically disappears”...
The fact is that poverty is more of a mental state than it is a physical state. It entails a lack of motivation, irresponsibility, drug and alcohol
abuse, and violence. These are all results from a dysfunctioning, single-parent household.
Majority of juvenile delinquent teens, and even imprisoned adults come out of single parent homes. Many of these children grow up never knowing their
natural fathers. The Father taught the boys respect, responsibility, and most importantly, manhood. Without this, men tend to become effeminate, that
is, to carry traits of a woman. They are dramatic, obsess over fashion, can't change oil in a car, live off of their "baby momma's", and tend to
argue a lot because they are not equipped to resolve conflict, something learned through manhood.
How did this happen?
Feminism came in and urged women to be ‘sexually liberated’. In other words, be promiscuous because its ‘ok’. This naturally lead to the
births of many out-of-wedlocked children. You add that to the welfare programs and at their reward and incentive system. More benefits are allotted
to women with multiple children out-of-wedlock.
Liberal policies in general played a huge role in the destruction of the strong, nuclear family, they all agreed. Policies such as legalizing drugs,
gay marriage, and abortion were all very detrimental to not only a healthy family, buy a healthy nation. Legalizing drugs sounds to me like an ‘I
–can-do-whatever-I want-as long-as it-doesn’t- hurt-anyone childlike attitude”. These proponents aren't realizing that with the freedom of
rampant drug use, more irresponsible behavior is bound to follow. More crime, not less crime, as the supporters of this movement would like to argue,
because people will not be thinking properly. Reasoning skills are affected under the influence of drugs.
What about abortion?
This is not ‘mistake that just happens’ as its supporters proclaim. The bill allowing abortion, resulting from the 1970’s Supreme Court Case,
stands as if it honors women the ‘freedom’ to do with her body as she pleases. However, she is not considering that in doing so, she has now
infringed on the body of someone else; the body, or life, of the unborn. Not to mention the cost to tax payers for coverage of these medical expenses
for the procedure, as usually these women are already on some form of assistance.
Abortion should not be a "quick fix"...The irresponsible behavior should be stopped before you get to the point of having to ‘fix it’ by taking
Liberal polices mimic this pattern. Curtail and subsidize the behavior after the fact, not stop it before the damage is done. It’s not
What say you?
