While President Obama and many others are calling for a state of emergency on Black fathers, things are not as bleak as the media would have you think.
According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, black fathers spend more time rearing their children than white and Hispanic fathers.
In the study 70 percent of Black fathers were most likely to have bathed, dressed, diapered or helped their children use the toilet every day compared with 60 percent of white fathers and 45 percent of Hispanic fathers.
A higher percentage of black fathers spent more time driving their kids to activities than white fathers and more black fathers helped their children with homework every day compared with Hispanic dads and white ones.
Now I am not saying Black fathers should ease up or take fatherhood any less lightly. It’s just good to know that Black fathers are on the right track. Just thought we would share. #DadsRule #FatherhoodFriday
