As quiet as it is kept there is a self-destruction going on in the Black community that doesn't seem to be on any-one's radar,Black Teen Pregnancies.
The folks who are leaders in our community don't really lead,they are there for one purpose it seems to me,and that is simply to keep the community ignorant of the real issues facing our community.
Teen pregnancies perpetuates a lifetime of poverty for most teens who become mothers and fathers.
Stats that I have seen clearly show that a large percentage of people receiving cash assistance from welfare in most urban centers in this country are teen mothers.
Most produce the bulk of males incarcerated in jails and prisons in this country,and children in the foster care system.
We can't continue to blame white folks for the problem of babies having babies and the problems that come with that situation.
It's time for the leaders in our community to grow a pair and speak the truth about what is truly happening to our children and community.
That means all you preachers,teachers,politicans and everyday folk,need to start speaking truth and stop turning a blind eye to our children.
