Today’s welfare state is just as destructive to black families as the old, antebellum south. The only difference is we don’t have a book the equivalent of Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” to demonstrate the insidious nature of the Federal Government.
Plantation owners sold off slaves; separating families. The Federal Government makes mothers dependent upon taxpayer largess on condition that they are single, in essence separating the family from a much needed male influence.
Sure there is no Simon Legree whipping, abusing, and enslaving blacks today; but without a male role model in the family, many young, blacks end up in our prison system; and isn’t that a different kind slavery?
