My privilege was that my parents stuck around with each other. Wasn't pretty and there were problems but out of necessity and for me they did. Again that's the defining factor. Fatherlessness is such a prevalent issue in black homes and is key to solve these issues. Not complaining about anything just pointing out how these never ending excuses are mostly bullshit.https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr071.pdfFathers’ Involvement With Their Children: United States, 2006–2010
