Scary numbers for the next generation.........

Is it any wonder more blacks are in jail than in college? In Georgia, in 2004, 69.3 percent of black children, 46.4 percent of Hispanic and 24.5 percent of white children were born to unmarried women.

And another thing. None of us chose our parents. There isn't a full-blood Native or "half-breed" that can change their degree of Native blood. Your composition was genetically selected about 9 months prior to birth for you.

I don't have the statistics for Native American children, say in Minnesota, who are born to unmarried women but if birth announcements in my tribal newspaper are any indication, then the number is probably north of 60 percent.

Where are the men needed to raise these children? Being a father is not being a sire.
