America is in crisis. Our families are under attack. The Black urban family, in particular, is in crisis mode with abortion disproportionately represented in our community with over 1800 black babies aborted daily nationally. The total number to date is nearly 20 million babies since Roe v. Wade in 1973.
Here are some sobering statistics:
- Well over 70% plus of Black families in urban America today are a single parent home.
- 70% of urban Black families before the Great Society Entitlement Programs (welfare) were implemented by President Lyndon Baines Johnson in 1964 were two parents families with males heading the household.
Abortion has done to the Black family and community what Jim Crow and slavery could not. For the first time in history, the Black population is in depopulation in many urban centers across America.
According to Rev. Walter B. Hoye, a subject matter expert on abortion and founder and president of the Issues 4 Life Foundation, the Black population in America has been cut nearly in half because of abortion. Here is a quote from Rev. Hoye from a recent article in Life News:
“Our best estimates, based on a projection of the most recent data through the current period, is that the current cumulative number of abortions from 1967 through June of this year is 59.4 million, of which an estimated 20,350,000 are Black American abortions.”
“Considering that the total current Black American population is about 42,000,000, the 20,350,000 Black American abortions are equal to 48.45% of the total Black American population. If not for abortion, the total Black American population would be approximately 62,350,000, or 48% greater than it is today,” he explained.
So, Blacks, as an ethnicity, have been cut nearly in half in 40 plus years, and Black families are nearly decimated with fatherhood aborted and no fathers in the home.
My point in sharing these statistics is this: traditional roles and morals in the urban Black community are under attack in America because of entitlement programs, abortion, and the liberal progressive agenda which seek to redefine America and its original charter, which is built upon a Judeo-Christian ethic. When you attempt to redefine what God has ordained and his natural order, you end up with chaos.
The urban Black community and its plight is the canary in the mine shaft for the general state of America. According to syndicated columnist and author Star Parker in her book titled “White Ghetto: How Middle-Class America Reflects Inner City Decay,” decaying values, sexually transmitted diseases, fatherless homes, rampant drug use are what the Black community is facing. These aren’t just problems for today’s inner cities. It’s the plight of all America.
To quote Dr. Patrick Fagan of the MARRI Marriage & Religious Research Institute at Family Research Council when I inquired of his passion for what is taking place in urban America, he responded, “So goes the Black community, so goes the rest of America.”
The social re-engineering taking place so successfully in the Black community is now being rolled out across America, attacking all that our great nation was, and is, and is yet to be. Revisionist history writing as to our origins has infected our foundational systems including education, governance, commerce, entertainment, our military, even our religious institutions.
We all have a vested interest in pushing back on this evil agenda that is permeating America. When the common sense, God-loving populace of America stands up and activates its moral authority, we can return our nation to a free and moral society.
Let us, as brothers and sisters in Christ of all ethnicity and citizens of this great nation, unify in prayer, and then do what Christ has commanded us to do. Occupy and take dominion until His triumphant return.
