Early this morning, I received this e-mail from a Black reader who is a corporate executive. Would love for all of those who “read” my site, yet throw baseless racism charges at me, to actually read it. I don’t know about not raising kids in the U.S., but I agree and have certainly written repeatedly on my site about how tough it is and how all innocence and sense of a childhood is lost (and how way too many “parents” are just womb and sperm donors).

Subject: Thank you
I read and re read your article on single moms in the military as well as the article about the father boarding the bus to protect his daughter. There is something pathetically wrong with Black America, so much so that as a black man I refuse to raise my children in the USA. I find your articles candid, to the point and I applaud you for raising such issues. Political correctness has replaced common sense and principle and the statement you made about the father’s use of coarse language, it is so accurate in saying that the lingua franca is the only language these kids understand, these kids simply have no discipline, no manners and no parental care, even with one parent. Blacks continue to blame whites for their plight but refuse to accept responsibility for the despair they bring upon themselves. As for single moms in the military, this will never change as most single moms in the military are black, so any attempt to fix this problem will end up being a racial issue, the USA military is slowly becoming a social experiment by the liberals.
Continue to write Debbie, I find your articles refreshing. Have a nice day.
Readers like this–like most of you, regardless of your race and ethnicity–are a good part of why I continue my work with this site. This reader is not the only Black American man who feels this way. There are many like him. The conventional narrative is that Black America is a monolith. But despite their nearly unanimous vote for Barack Obama, when it comes to issues like this, many Black Americans have conservative values.
And you don’t need to be a conservative to know right from wrong and when things stop making sense. To the contrary, sometimes–many times–as in the cases of so many I’ve identified on this site (Sarah Palin, Michelle Fraudkin, Hot Airheads, RedStateIdiotRandPaulovers), false calling one’s self a “conservative” is just mere costuming for excusing what’s wrong.
