The Increasing Number of Single-Parent Homes Is Exclusively a Black Problem
The increase in the number of single-parent homes has been depicted as exclusively a Black problem. But the overall number of single-parent American households has tripled since 1960. While the number of Black single-parent households was at 67 percent in 2013, the number for whites that year was 25 percent, while for Hispanics it was 42 percent. In addition, the number of Black, single-father households is also on the rise.
