Upon seeing the title of a segment on NPR's "Tell Me More" about the number of Black females who have children from multiple men I gathered together the grievances that were announced as the issue was debated over the past several weeks and wondered how this specific issue would be discussed in the broader context. (The study looked at women from all races but reported dramatically higher numbers among Blacks).
The sociologist who was first up was asked the reasons why the Black rate of multiple fraternal partners was so high. She immediately spouted points of Black inferiority and claimed oppression:
- Blacks are poor
- Blacks are incarcerated at higher than normal rates
