Professor Goes in on Black Single Mothers

PROFESSOR SAYS “BLACKS ARE STUPID BECAUSE THEY’RE RAISED BY SINGLE MOMS

Uh oh! Controversial University of Texas at Austin law professor Lino Graglia gave an interview to the BBC in which he claims, among other things, that blacks and Latinos can’t compete with white students, particularly because of the fact that so many of them are raised by single moms. Awwww hell!

He said he could ‘hardly imagine a less beneficial or more deleterious experience than to be raised by a single parent, usually female, uneducated and without a lot of money.’ He said the average black performance on SAT test is 200 points lower than that for the average white student and that among the black population almost three quarters of children are now born outside of marriage.


The outspoken professor appeared slightly flustered when the BBC interviewer pointed out that he was black and raised in a single parent family himself. But he continued: ‘How well do these kids do in maths and reading is basically it and they do less well.

Graglia’s interview was related to the fact that UT is currently in a battle with a white student it rejected who claims that the school’s affirmative action program is to blame for her having to go to a second-rate college.

In 1997, Graglia came under fire again for telling a conservative UT student group that the black and Mexican-American cultures set children up for failure. “They have a culture that seems not to encourage achievement,” he said. “Failure is not looked upon with disgrace.”

    He's not lying, I would amend his article and base it on class, not race. If they based on income areas it would be maybe even more astounding.

    doing that would be futile... blacks have high levels of concentrated disadvantage...

    He's a walking contradiction. He might've had a valid point if he was raised in a two parent home. What makes him the exception?

    I don't see how this only applies to BLACK single mothers or really even only single mothers for that matter.

    How about the kid with two parents that both work their asses off keeping them away from the home?

    Keep making it a race issue and people will keep tuning you out because you've made it a race issue.

    Thats a racist comment as it appears. Some people just refuse to accept people aint the same just because of their skin tone. How stupid can you be. I could think all brown haired people are the same but that would be idiotic.But whatever ,just another topic for discussion feels good not to be ignorant.

    Lets be honest with ourselves for a second folks. I'm black and can say there is some truth to wat this guy is saying. Now, I wud have chosen a better word than 'stupid' but thats besides the point. Generally speaking academics has never been our forte as a people group. I think dude is ignorant of other social, political and psychological issues that contribute to this dilemma. For him to just sum it down to single parent-hood upbringing is very ignorant at best.

    I agree fathers---responsible fathers being absent from the home has been particularly detrimental
    to Black life especially being that in any society, men are the key protectors. Thing is men are manufactured beings, there are societal and cultural precepts that occur aka rites of passage that boys are expected to sojourn in going from boy to man. In America we dont have none of that, lines are blurred until "you 18 now nigga" without
    any significant cultural markers to identify manhood.
    We have physical markers such as turn 16 get a license turn 18 you can vote turn 21 you can drink and even when you get your first piece of pussy but all of these are external without any sort of requirement for internal emotional and intellectual development.

    Lol another salty fatherless nigga.
    "i love my mom for taking care of me but I hate her for choosing a bum to procreate with & not giving me a two parent home, so instead of confronting my issues & placing some of the responsibility on my absent father, i'll deflect the negativity on single mothers & women"

    Somebody need to shut those "salty fatherless nigga" factories down.

    where do these niggas come from?

    I have a very strong feeling ,that the very same guys here giving him props and pats on the back now
