Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.
A very interesting story demonstrating how the black family has been destroyed by the delusions of the left.
The article was authenticated by finding the original source at the Fredericksburg News.
Another stunning example of Political Correctness run amok and creating a needles racial divide.
Political Correctness is a Marxist tactic used to silence free speech unless the Marxists agree with it and divide us.
There are no “Negroes” on the U.S. Olympic Team all members are very simply called Americans.
The young people attending this Harlem cotillion in 1954 did not aspire to be ‘hootchie mamas’ or thugs, suggests the author.

–There was a time until the early 1960s when the terms to describe those of African decent, like me–African-American or black or Afro-American–were almost unheard of.
Back when we were Negroes in the 1950s, “only 9 percent of black families with children were headed by a single parent,” according to “The Black Family: 40 Years of Lies” by Kay Hymowitz.
Black children had a 52 percent chance of living with both their biological parents until age 17. In 1959, “only 2 percent of black children were reared in households in which the mother never married.”
But now that we’re African-Americans, according to Hymowitz, those odds of living with both parents had “dwindled to a mere 6 percent” by the mid-1980s.
And check this: in Bibb County, Ga., more than 70 percent of the births in the African-American community are to single mothers.
Back when we were Negroes and still fighting in many parts of the country for the right to vote, we couldn’t wait for the polls to open. We knew our friends, family, and acquaintances had died getting us the ballot.
Dogs and fire hoses were used to keep us away, and still we came. But now that we’re African-Americans, in Macon, a city of 47,000 registered–predominately black–voters, more than 30,000 didn’t show up at the polls July 19.
Back when we were Negroes, we had names like Joshua, Aaron, Paul, Esther, Melba, Cynthia, and Ida. Now that we are African-Americans, our names are bastardized versions of alcohol from Chivas to Tequila to C(S)hardonnay. And chances are the names have an unusual spelling.
