Who or what is really to blame for promoting slavery and fatherless Black families in the USA?
The Chicago Tribune article written by a black columnist give one of the main clues to the conundrum in his article titled:
Father’s Day reminds me of who taught me about fatherhood.
Another article in the Guardian titled:
Low income Black fathers want to be good dads; the system won’t let them.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb to help discern one of the main root causes of hatred and anger by Blacks being reported in the news.
Will after reading the articles help point to both the causes and responsibility of Government policies, politicians, and political parties who help cause the AD (American Dream) to end or pause, in my opinion?
Woe to you, O land, when your king is a child, And your princes feast in the morning! (Ecclesiastes 10:16)
“unskilled in government”
“the “morning” is particularly observed, because the fittest time for consultation about the affairs of government; and was the usual time of sitting in judgment and trying causes,”
What’s My Point?
The Chicago Tribune writer points out the first clue in this statement?
“We might be poor, Dad used to say, but we are rich in spirit.”
“ But the erosion of good-paying factory jobs and affordable educational opportunities has killed the spirt in many families of all colors.”
The Guardian article give more clues. The most significant in my opinion is this one.
“Second, on a local level, improving the self-sufficiency of low-income black fathers means we need to simplify access to employment programs and work more effectively with community-based not-for-profits, trade organizations, and local schools and colleges to improve access to these opportunities”
My point is for both Blacks and poor White families to consider in the upcoming 2020 Presidential election, which politicians and political parties where the main drivers to outsource good paying livable wage factory jobs to be outsourced in such a great percentage to other countries.
Which political party is supporting open borders to allow more job seekers who in essence become a factor to reduce the job opportunities for native born Americans?
Which political party supports abortion of children that mainly has stagnated or reduced the populations of Black families.
In My Opinion
The politicians who believed in a service-based economy that resulted in the USA to become totally dependent on manufacturing sources 8000 miles away listened to “foolish childlike minds of politicians “unskilled in government”
For example, was if wise to allow our Nation to outsource 90 percent of USA needs for PPE and drugs to sources 8000 miles away?
If only 50 percent was outsourced, would that have made a significant difference to prevent the rapid spread and risks of incurring Covid-19 to the medical and general population, and even worse on Black families?

Have the politicians and political parties will you vote for in 2020 produced a plan to restore your spirits and a means to provide for good livable wage job opportunism instead of government dependence, a form of slavery in my opinion, for subsidies to support a family with a father without a livable wage job opportunity?
Or are the politicians promising change going to turn out to be a repeat promise made by an empty suit politician?
Would school choice or school vouchers being requested by many Black families help improve what parents want most to instill in their children, but keep being stifled by politicians supporting teaching unions?
