You would do well, if you had not painted everyone who you believe lives in the "Ghetto", or grew up in single family homes with a broad brush. The would be stereotyping. You dont know what peoples situations are. And for that matter, there are children who grew up in intact families who have present-but-absent fathers, go home to violence everyday, are abused, or have many other problems that will create anger in children. While I take nothing away from the nuclear family structure, I think it is easy to just blame it on having a single mom as the only person raising a child.
There are many single moms who are exellent parents and had to be and not just because they were young moms either. Sometimes its due to divorce or because they had to excape an abusive husband. And even the ones who made a huge mistake in not being careful and had children out of wedlock, do you mean to tell me that all of there children will be incarcerated, drop out or have more kids out of wedlock. I dont think so. I think the media quots statistics and shows these types of things (which must be handled) and we overlook that each of those statistical numbers equal a person with unique groups of ***. And you never hear the stats that say that these children or single moms go on to get training grow the heck up, and get out of poverty.
My mother divorces my father when I was three. Dispite the fact that she had four children that she had to take care of on her own by the time I was 7 years old she had obtained a four year degree in journalism. You know what? We lived in the projects for a long time after that because she wanted to raise us and she did a good job because, with the exeption of my sister who is deciesed all three of her other children went to college, none of use (including my sister) were teen parents of out of wedlock children, or has ever seen the inside of a jail. This is why stereo typing, to me, is just intellectual lazyness. Unless you are going to look at sociological reasons for the crime and put it in historic and cultural context then *** up.
A few of these people have less than rational ideas on this page. That does not mean that they are a representative sample of people who live in less then desirable neighborhoods.
For that matter, you dont even know what there backgrounds are to make those sort of judgements. Thy may not live in the ghetto. Look at Beyonce (who I wish all the happiness in the world) she cant talk and she grew up well to due. Her father was a prominent busness man in Texas.lol
Ability to communicate doesnt have anything to do with morality. Think about it.
In my personal experience the ghetto is a geographical location and has nothing to do with where you are mentally. So, befor you continue to make these offensive comments think about people on a case by case bases instead of labeling. The black community is divers and doesnt care to be lumped together by whites, the same is true of those you call ghetto.
