Is there a reason why most black fathers are not involved in their children's life?
Debate Rounds (2)
First and foremost, I would like to scrutinize why Con has already negated his/her argument. The resolution contains this notion; "Is there a reason why most black fathers are not involved in their children's life"? As the con, the individual that opposes the notion, there is a reason for black fathers failing to be involved in their children's life, you have provided reasons in your introduction for why black fathers are not involved in their children life. Including the statistics that you have and mentioning the prevalently drug induced atmosphere for black families, are reasons for black fathers neglecting their children. Essentially Con, you have not only inadvertently adopted my position, you have additionally my fulfilled my behalf of the resolution. Despite this, I will provide below a few succinct arguments corroborating the notion that black fathers may not be adequately involved in their children's life.
According to the Census Bureau examining various years throughout contemporary American demographics, black families have had an average of about 24 percent, while all other races poverty percentage amount to an estimated 11 percent. Families with higher poverty are more lily to be exposed to an environment where the crime rates may also be excessively high. This may correlate with black men who impregnate women, and are either subsequently indicted with a felony and then taken to jail, or are either killed.
Noting the brief economic statistic above, many black men who live in poverty ridden surrounding or household, may be far more likely not to attend a higher education prior to high school, or even complete high school. This may lead to a less paying job in the future, or even no job. A man who is not satisfied financially via vocation, is far more likely, abandon a women he has impregnated because of the financial situation that burdens his ability to support the mother and the baby.
