I love (not really) when people say it's the parents fault. So many of our kids who are/were born to single or teenage mothers are in foster care or the care of grandparents and guardians. Big Brother and Sister Association reports that most of the Black children they serve don't get Black mentors (male or female) and many sit longer on waiting lists compared to other groups of kids. It's a shame...but some of these people loooove to complain and attack folks because of song?
