The Welfare State’s Legacy
By Walter E.Williams
September 20, 2017 

*** begin quote ***

The No. 1 problem among blacks is the effects stemming from a very weak family structure. Children from fatherless homes are likelier to drop out of high school, die by suicide, have behavioral disorders, join gangs, commit crimes and end up in prison. They are also likelier to live in poverty-stricken households. But is the weak black family a legacy of slavery? In 1960, just 22 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families. Fifty years later, more than 70 percent of black children were raised in single-parent families. Here’s my question: Was the increase in single-parent black families after 1960 a legacy of slavery, or might it be a legacy of the welfare state ushered in by the War on Poverty?

Professor Williams always teaches me something.

Now we can blame to Gooferment for this human disaster.

Seems like we need to declare DEFEAT in the “War on Poverty”. 

Just like the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, the Gooferment IS the problem.
