Desperately Seeking Dad?

Here are the statistics from the National Fatherhood Initiative:

Percentage of children who live in father-absent homes:

  • African American: 64%
  • Hispanic: 34%
  • Caucasian: 25%

The national average is 1 out of every 3 children, or 33%, live without their biological father in the home.

Staggering numbers for the African American community. Yet, last night at the neighbourhood park with Mr. Spice and his daughter there were only fathers present. Not only that, but 5 out of the 6 fathers who had taken their children to the park were black.

I love when the odds are defied.
