I have about 6 friends who all fit the same pattern - black girls with brothers, no father. The girls are all successful and the boys are all wild. The girls were expected to keep the house going, cook, clean and help out. The boys were never made to lift a finger. Even subtler expectations about behavior are different. As a result the girls are all college educated and the boys are high school drop outs roaming the streets.
I don't think the fully explains the phenomena. Something psychological is going that has nothing to do with the family unit. Because black males are dropping out or not finishing college from many different kinds of family units.
Sorry - I agree with you that it can't be the whole story. It's probably a combination of a lot of things. But I do think that black men are subject to different expectations even within the black community.
How do we change this?
