Read Walter Williams thoughts and then my commentary –

“The undeniable truth is that neither slavery nor Jim Crow nor the harshest racism has decimated the black family the way the welfare state has,” said George Mason professor Walter Williams in his column for The Richmond Times-Dispatch.

There is little evidence to support the idea that slavery, racial discrimination and poverty caused the problems of today’s black Americans, the economics professor wrote. The number one problem is the weak family structure: In 1960, just 22 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families. Fifty years later, more than 70 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families. According to the 1938 Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences, that year 11 percent of black children were born to unwed mothers. Today about 75 percent of black children are born to unwed mothers. That can’t be a legacy of slavery, it can’t be some delayed reaction.

As Professor Williams said, the bottom line is that the black family was stronger the first 100 years after slavery than during what will be the second 100 years. All blacks were poor originally but now 30 percent are poor. Two-parent black families are rarely poor.

Only 8 percent of black married-couple families live in poverty. Among black families in which both the husband and wife work full time, the poverty rate is under 5 percent. Poverty in black families headed by single women is 37 percent. It’s the welfare state that decimated the black family, he concludes.

Sounds like Walter all right. The only item I would disagree with is that :All blacks were poor originally”.  There were some prosperous blacks – some had slaves themselves and John Hansen was arguably the first President of the original United States before the Constitution was written. 

 If you really study history, right after slavery ended, when its effects should have been strongest, Black universities were formed (HBC's), there were blacks in Congress, inventions were being made by blacks, and race relations eased. Even firebrand Abolitionist Frederick Douglas formed an interracial marriage within a couple decades of the Civil War. Marriages in general became strong and until the euphemistically title "Great Society" came along, the vast majority of black children had a dad in their homes. 
The Democrats did the KKK and Jim Crow thing, lynching and terrifying many. Darwin's racist theory enabled by religious liberals became the norm in schools by the beginning of the twentieth century. It showed blacks as inferior and in an intermediate position between apes and men. The Dems love Margaret Sanger to this day, the founder of Planned Parenthood, who wanted abortion to greatly reduce the black population which she deemed inferior. The Dems also brought out the dogs, the fire hoses, and practiced the worst segregation. Lester Maddox. But Connor. etc. Ike brought integration to Little Rock, no Dem did. 
So and you tell me, why does the overwhelming majority of black people still vote for people who have been historically violently and philosophically opposed to them, who have murdered their young before they could even be born, opposed the police who want to project their teens and young people, and instituted braindead economic/social policies that have decimated the black family to such an alarming degree? Why support people who go against their Christian religious heritage, celebrating sexual perversion, preying on women to an incredibly alarming degree, and bankrupting Christians who dare oppose their Satanic agenda? Blacks have benefitted more in one year of Trump than in eight years of Obama. So the question remains, why indeed?
