The Challenge for Black America

Jonathan Kay's latest posting refers the reader to this table about the living arrangements of American children under 18 years of age in 2006. I've done the required calculations to convert the numbers into percentages:

White Black Hispanic Asian
Living with both parents
76% 35% 66% 83%
Mother only
16% 51% 25% 10%
Father only
5% 4% 4% 3%
Neither parent
3% 10% 5% 3%

Anybody who doesn't see the obvious problem in the Black community either has an agenda or is so daft to not be worth listening to. Hmmm, might Jesse Jackson have a few things to learn from Bill Cosby?
