Black Lives Matter says”Fathers don’t Matter”

June 7th- 2020

Father teaching his son to be a strong man

Just when you thought Black Lives Matter couldn’t get any more left winged by calling for defunding and disbanding all police departments across America, they are now advocating for fatherless homes, or atleast stating that fathers are “optional.”

According to their official website at https://blacklivesmatter.com/what-we-believe/

They claim to want to destroy male centered “patriarchy” (The belief that men hold all of the advantages in society), and to remove the western held belief of a “Nuclear family” (i.e. a home containing both a mother and father). They are also against “heteronormative thinking”, according to their statement. .

In their mission statement, they make several promises to support trans women, women of color, black people in general, LBGTQ, mothers….and “parents”. A deliberate avoidance of the word “fathers” and men.

From Blacklivesmatter.com-

As we can see, they have spelled out their agenda clearly. They feel shame and disgust towards anything that is heterosexual, white, male, or traditional in values such as nuclear families and marriage.

Is this the message we should be preaching to the Black community where fatherless homes make up over 70% of all households? The white community isnt fairing much better clocking in at over Half! According to “United Families International”, an organization that studies the relationship between children and parents, discovered that “boys who grow up without fathers are almost 4 times more likely to serve time in prison than those who grow up with a father.

Speaking of prison, men make up over 75% of the federal prison population whereas almost all inmates report not having a stable father figure. Studies also suggest that women receive lighter sentences for the same crime committed by men, do the “Damsel in Distress” Stereotype.

BLM frequently preaches against male privilege yet ignores that less than 12% of men win custody of their kids in divorces and more than half lose contact with this kids within two years after divorce.

Men who experience divorce are twice as likely than women to be forced into bankruptcy and 6 times more likely to be at risk for suicide. Currently over 70% of all homeless people in the US are men. Over 90% of all illegal child soldiers in the world are boys.

Boys are also at an all time low for college enrollment. Girls are outpacing boys in college enrollment at nearly 2 to 1 ratios. Societies war against masculinity has caused a generation of weak, subservient men who are still being drafted into wars in order to fight on everyone else’s behalf.

This generation is obsessed with “progress”, yet no shame or respect for anything that is traditional or Godly in any sense of the world. The days of a strong man/warrior/protector with a nurturing, loving mother are soon to be long gone.

In closing, perhaps we should all check out privilege, especially if you live in the USA, whereas half of the world is living on less than $1 a day in addition to continued slavery practices in central & East Africa, Eatern Europe, and South east Asia.

Even the lowest class citizen of USA has a higher standard of life than someone in Somalia, Uganda, Ukraine Cambodia, or Yugoslavia.

The worst part is, BLM claims to speak for black America but ignores its conservative black constituents. I’ll say this….you can protest against police brutality, seek Justice for George Floyd, call for the arrest of Derek Chauvin, and denounce racism…. you can even say ” Black Lives Matter”, but under all means, if you have any respect for conservative traditional ways of living, and you respect the men in your life, I would not recommend financially supporting this specific organization.

Child Support Enforcement Agency, “We don’t care if you see your child.”

September 23,2017-

On September 23rd, 2017,  Memphis Legislator , Antonio Parkinson, held a “Block Party For Peace” event featuring a Townhall meeting with the Child Support Enforcement Agency. Onlookers had the chance to address concerns with the agency and lawmakers directly. In attendance was, Kenya Rahmaan, founder of the child-support reform organization known as the “Child Support Hustle”, with radioshow host, Marcus Echols, on deck. The CSEA sparred with Rahmaan and Echols regarding Child Support Issues. After an intense debate, a moderator opened the floor to the audience.

I had the chance to approach the stand and ask several questions. I asked the following questions…

“If homosexual couples divorce, there is no man vs woman scenario. The courts are forced to look at the situation equally as far as custody goes. Why can we not treat heterosexual divorces with the same eye?”

“Why don’t fathers receive representation and case workers to assist them? Under Civil law, we are not entitled to representation, however, with so many criminal sanctions being threatened, why not make an exception?”

“Why is there a child support enforcement agency but no Child Visitation enforcement Agency?”

The CSEA responded by saying that they are a “IV-D” federally funded agency, whereas custody issues  were not important to them. The representative from the CSEA said, “I know this sounds bad but, child support has no bearing on custody issues..we are a IV-D Agency”

(see video above)

What is Title IVD of the Social Security Act? The law states that, for ever dollar received in child support, the federal government agrees to pay the state with a matched amount in the form of a grant. More or less— They are making money from child support! Thus there is no incentive for shared parenting without child support being needed.

I tried to follow up with more questions but was quickly  ushered away.

Afterward, I had an opportunity to speak with Rep.Parkinson. I handed him a copy of my shadow report, “Global Human Trafficking in the Family Law Courts.”  

(Stroud and Rep.Parkinson) 

Mr.Parkinson did his best to remain neutral, but did agree that reform was needed. In fact, Mr.Parkinson himself sponsored a bill just last year that reduced retroactive support from indefinitely to 5 years.  A major step at reducing criminal arrearages for new child support cases.

Our dream is to eventually see a norm of default 50/50 custody. There should be no presumption that women are more qualified to be custodial parents based solely on gender.  Default 50/50 custody with no order of child support, unless otherwise warranted, should be the standard.

Regardless of where you stand, nearly everyone can agree that the family law system is in need of a serious update!

Stay tuned!
