Census Data on Minorities and Marriage

A recent Associated Press story talks about the census data showing that white babies are no longer a majority of American births. The racial component dominates the headline, and is interesting in itself. I suppose Planned Parenthood can start panicking that their schemes to keep blacks in a permanent minority status through birth control and abortion are failing.

The troubling part of the report is not the racial aspect, but the marital statistics.
Among African-Americans, U.S. households headed by women - mostly single mothers but also adult women living with siblings or elderly parents - represented roughly 30 percent of all African-American households, compared with the 28 percent share of married-couple African-American households. It was the first time the number of female-headed households surpassed those of married couples among any race group, according to census records reviewed by Frey dating back to 1950.
More single-parent homes of any racial group means more social problems, crime, poverty, addiction, and abortion. Our culture must learn to value marriage again. Ultimately, that comes as a result of spiritual awakening, but we can also promote the value of marriage by modeling good marriages in our own homes and teaching abstinence and proper values.
