Bachmann: Black People Were Better Off During Slavery?

Bachmann: Black People Were Better Off During Slavery?.

I thought I would share this article with you before I go back to reading about some psychoanalytical history of Adolf Hitler. Check out this quote from the queen of hoof in mouth disease:

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

Ms. Bachmann, you are a giant bag of douche.

    The statistics involved are a little shaky but there’s evidence to support Bachmann’s statement. It’s not her fault that the current situation is that bad.

    I am not sure what the stats are on that, but all races have the larger amount of children being raised in a one parent family than they did back then. Many times these days women in general are no longer taught to sit back and take a man who is useless, or even abusive, or for that matter both. As far as I am concerned, any child is better off being raised in a fairly stable, non abusive, single parent home, then maybe the next generation of children will have less psychopaths walking around in the future.

      I couldn’t have said it better myself Charlene!

      The 2005 study, The Consequences of Marriage for African Americans, purports that 56.3% of Black children during the slavery era were raised by both parents as opposed 66.9% of White children. Current statistics are 33% for Blacks and 76% for Whites.

      As for abusiveness or uselessness – that’s an “interesting” spin on things to say the least. I’ve never heard the tendency for single-parenting defending in quite that manner.

    Yeah who cares about the rapes and lynching? It’s much more important that they come from a two parent household. Ugh. 😡

    How’s that for a US Presidential candidate!

    “It’s probably sadly true too.. that employment was much higher among african-americans when we had slavery, than it is today. And we had, sadly, fewer african-americans on food-stamps during the slavery days. Not to mention homelessness – there were none back then, and look at some of our cities today.”

    It doesn’t really matter, at least to the public at large. Its only black people she’s making insensitive remarks about…and you know how much THEY complain… Now if it were a comment about how the Jewish-American children fared better under the Holocaust in some way, her political career would be over. Funny how selective American tolerance for dumb statements is.

    blogosphere. Short but very accurate info… Appreciate your
    sharing this one. A must read post!
