If the Democratic Party is interested in garnering men’s votes, one certainly would not know it from their platform. The Democratic National Committee’s "Renewing America's Promise" is bad news for American fathers.It was for putting down black fathers that Jesse Jackson said that he wanted to cut Barack Obama's nuts off and called him the N-word.
The platform’s "Fatherhood" plank puts all blame for father absence squarely on men, and promises to "crack down" on fathers who are behind on their child support. It also promises to ratchet up draconian domestic violence laws which often victimize innocent men and separate them from their children.
Yes, there are a lot of single mothers in the black community, but why just blame the men? It is the women who are getting themselves pregnant outside of marriage, and trying to raise a kid without a man. It is the law that limits fathers from being more involved in their kids' lives. And the welfare and child support laws that pay mothers to stay singe.
