    TALKING POINTS... Candice Owens book BLACKOUT, Glen Beck's podcast, articles

    Link to additional information

    Link to my letter- which is long and detailed please don't feel like you have to write as much or be as detailed I typically don't write this type of lengthy letter but felt like I needed to this time. 

    Other talking points could include equity vs equality.... I just went another route discussing families. Please take this issue on too!

    Fatherless homes result in:

    • 70% of black babies are brought into the world without a father.
    • 71% of high school dropouts
    • 63% of youth suicides
    • 71% of teen pregnancies
    • 90% of homeless and runaway youths
    • Fatherless children are twice as likely to: go to jail, abuse alcohol & have mental health issues and FOUR TIMES as likely to abuse drugs.

    Black families:

    • 1950 (29.6% unmarried black males: 24.4% unmarried white males)
    • 2017 (51.9% unmarried black males: 33.1% unmarried white males) 362% increase black males
    • Illegal immigration disproportionately impacts unskilled black labors
    • #1 Preventable and unpreventable deaths for a black man are homicide almost always black vs. black
    • 80% of poverty are single-parent homes
    • Black married couples poverty lower than whites.
    • Unwed mothers are rewarded by our government to be dependent on the government not a father nor the church
    • Financially more beneficially for a single mom to stay on welfare than marry.. 

    Facts you should know about BLM?

    • Ignores fatherhood.(see above)
    • Discredits role of family- yet the facts are that single-mother households likely to produce children have lower school achievements, suffer socially and emotionally, have poor health, and are at risk of child abuse… see statistics above.
    • Homosexuality & transgenderism, promotes being a victim vs victory in life,
    • Pro-abortion… apparently not all black lives matter- 40% of abortions are black babies yet 13% of the population is black
    • Does not promote forgiveness and reconciliation – anything but a Christian-based group.
    • Does not promote choice education

    Financial cost of BLM:The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992 after the acquittal of the police officers who brutalized Rodney King.

    Martin Luther King, Jr- quotes 

    • “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
    • “The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility.”
    • “Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
