This book is not intended to be used to try to down, belittle or point a finger at single mothers or parents of any gender for that matter. It is simply an unbiased look at one of the major problems... More > that we face in the Black community, single parent households. All too often we seem to think that as long as we are compensated X amount of dollars every two weeks through child support, that we can replace a fatherly figure in the home. I often sit back and wonder when and how this phenomenon started. I know it doesn't only occur in the black community but it seems to be more destructive for blacks than any other race.I really hope that we will be able to come together as a people and find some solutions to this problem so that our children don't repeat the cycle.< Less

I'm from Monroe Projects in the Bronx N.Y, where 90% of us were on welfare. When I was born I was on welfare, eating welfare cheese and watching my family struggle to get by and survive on a daily... More > basis, so I know what it's like to try to survive living on public assistance. I often go through my old hood and reminisce about the old days, and it makes me feel grateful that i've made it to see 41 years old, because a lot of my friends haven't! I have been going through some rough times recently, and it has made me have to revert back to the survival tactics that I grew up on when I was on welfare! Sacrifice, discipline, little money, etc... The only difference is I have a Government job and a mouth to feed! A middle-class worker with a welfare recipient mentality!< Less
