IS MARRIAGE FOR WHITE PEOPLE: HOW THE AFRICAN AMERICAN MARRIAGE DECLINE AFFECTS EVERYONE
By Ralph Richard Banks
You’ve heard the stats: educated Black women are less likely to marry, and having fewer Black married couples is ruining the Black community. Banks, a law professor, addresses these oldies but goodies.
He makes new assertions that contradict President Obama’s critism that absent Black fathers don’t care about their children. He disagrees with Steve Harvey’s advice that Balck women should ignore class when dating. Controversial? Yes. – RAKIA CLARK
