CNN's Roland Martin has been on this topic for years, and I applaud his voice in the choir. Men are needed to help raise their families!
From his Dec. 11, 2007 commentary:
But you see, when nearly 70 percent of black kids are born to unmarried parents, likely to a too-young mom, that puts tremendous pressure on grandmothers (and some grandfathers), sisters and brothers to take up the slack.
There is just NO SUBSTITUTE for a father in the family. Man up, young brothers!
