Where are All the Fathers?

This is one of the most massive elephants in the American living room.

The absence of the father in the average black American household. It's definitely not exclusively a black issue, but it's just accepted as the way it is-people aren't supposed to talk about it. It's reverse racism. Don't black children deserve a chance to grow up with the best chance of success possible. Or in the case of Chicago-with the best chance of living past their elementary school years?

However, and unfortunately-many other places in the Western world are faring no better.

This is the saddest article I've read over the past few days.

British kids want fathers for Christmas.
