Comment Hippy Quality Philosophy! (Score 1) 204

Because black people aren't more likely to go to jail when accused of a crime, which guarantees they can hold two-parent families just fine! Excellent knowledge. Luckily, people closer to poverty aren't likely to have unprotected sex at an earlier age, having children at an earlier age, which is known to be a common element to single parenting. Thankfully, though, young single parents aren't less likely to unsuccessful to have long lasting relationships that may lead to marriage and restoration of a two-parent household. Good thing the United States hasn't experienced veritable stagflation since the 60s, ensuring that two people working different shifts can make enough to manage the needs of their household without accumulating debt that could eventually deprive them of the security they otherwise had.

Of course, if any of that is wrong, your logic would be vastly flawed. So, if anyone challenges the legitimacy of your claim, here's some studies to hunt down:
