Father’s Day 2019: 1 in 4 U.S. children live in fatherless homes

by Dr. Eowyn

Today is Father’s Day.

Happy Father’s Day to all the men who are real dads instead of mere sperm-donors!

For more on the read dads, see the Pew Research Center’s “8 facts about American dads“.

But shame on the mere sperm-donors.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 201719.7 million children, more than 1 in 4, live without a father in the home. As fathers.com puts it: “If it were classified as a disease, fatherlessness would be an epidemic worthy of attention as a national emergency.”

The sperm-donors, by their absence in their children’s lives, are responsible for a whole host of their children’s problems and social ills.

In 2013, the worst states are:

  • Mississippi, where 36.2% of children lived in fatherless homes.
  • Louisiana: 34.4%
  • Alabama: 30.7%

Not coincidentally, blacks make up large percentages of the population in those states:

That this is not a coincidence is confirmed by 2012 U.S. Census Bureau statistics:

  • More than half (57.6%) of America’s black children lived absent their biological fathers.
  • 31.2% of Hispanic children and 20.7% of white children lived in fatherless homes.

Just as #BlackLivesMatter are silent on the vast numbers of black babies being aborted and the black-on-black homicides in cities like Chicago and Detroit, they are silent on the epidemic of black men abandoning their children. Instead, #BlackLivesMatter blame whities for blacks’ social ills, and vocal spokesmen like Colin Kaepernick and Spike Lee make showy, grandstanding virtue-signaling.
