Role Models

African-Americans, so it is said, need "role models." Yet among the lowest birth and fertility rates in America are just those who best qualify.

The late great tennis star Arthur Ashe and his wife one child.

Football star Calvin Hill and his wife have one child, basketball star Grant Hill.

Over the course of many years many African-American women remain spinsters.

Doesn't makes sense. Sad.


BTW teenage black birth rates have have been tumbling rapidly since the early 1990s.

So are you saying it's a bad thing that black teenage birth rates are tumbling?I don't understand what that factoid has to do with your argument.
