Black Fathers Exist!

Far too often Black Men are stereotyped as not being in there children lives. This is just not true, statistics show that Black Men are in there children lives. There are statistics to show that even if a Black Father is not in the home, he still has contact or visitation. 

It is imperative that the Black Community stop perpetuating the false stereotype that black men do not parent the children that we create. The stigma that the African American community received from all other races should be enough to stop degrading our own. The generational curse can easily be broken but it starts with training your mind to see things in a positive light. Your thoughts, turn into behavior and actions. Make them positive.

Although black fathers are more likely to live separately from their children — the statistic that’s usually trotted out to prove the parenting “crisis” — many of them remain just as involved in their kids’ lives. Pew estimates that 67 percent of black dads who don’t live with their kids see them at least once a month, compared to 59 percent of white dads and just 32 percent of Hispanic dads.
