    Pastor: ‘Government As Parent Has Destroyed the Black Family’, Made ‘Black Fatherhood Irrelevant’


    At a press conference on Wednesday to announce a new initiative to help youth in the nation’s troubled inner cities, the Rev. Cecil Blye, senior pastor at More Grace Ministries in Louisville, Ky., said federal policies designed to fight poverty in the black community have instead “destroyed” families.

    “The paradigm of government as parent has destroyed the black family and made black fatherhood irrelevant,” Blye said at the Stay True to America’s National Destiny (STAND) event at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

    “Our welfare policies have incentivized co-habitation, single motherhood, and unemployment,” he said.

    Looks like a few black people are starting to wake up. I'm sure they'll be shouted down as uncle Toms, or some such.
