Yep. Probably no demographic group has been more devastated by absent fatherhood and the rise of broken families more than African Americans. In fact, it's become so obvious that we say it and miss the implications of what we're saying.
A few years ago, to demonstrate the idea of 'privilege', some PSA organization produced a video. In that video, it had a hundred or so people line up on one side of a field. Then the narrator asked questions. If the answer was yes (or no, can't remember which), you stayed put while everyone else stepped forward. The line of people attempted to represent people from every possible demographic group, and who had the real privilege at the end.
The first question out of the box was 'How many of you gre3w up in a broken home?' It seemed almost half the people stayed put. And of those who stayed put, the vast majority were black. And among those who remained to continue the walk across the field, very few blacks were left.
The message was supposed to be what privilege is really all about. Yet nobody who made the video, or the outlets that showed and promoted the video, or the various websites that shared the video, seemed to get the most obvious problem. Per the sampling chosen for the video, the overwhelming number of blacks were left standing after the first question because of one reason: broken households.
So naturally today Google, like most of our nation (our own parish notwithstanding), chose to emphasis the inconsistently promoted Juneteenth and downplay, if not altogether ignore, Father's Day. Except for a brief mention on the news and a special BBQ segment on the local news, it was Juneteenth all the way (with Pride Celebrations elbowing in for a close third, if not second).
With each passing day, I become less able to convince myself that our leftwing ruling class isn't purposefully encouraging the worst behavior and attitudes in the black community in order to foster a self-fulfilling prophecy that can be used to dismantle the heritage of America and the Christian West. At some point, there simply isn't any other explanation for what our eyes can see and our ears can hear.
True, it could be our modern arrogance and hubris that leads to continuing support for the LGBTQ lifestyle and a whole month of PRIDE in the era of AIDS. But more and more it seems deliberate. After all, even the most obstinate narcissists can't possibly miss what is so nakedly obvious.
Note: Apparently this is already a meme. Google had to do Fathers Day before Juneteenth because you can't celebrate blacks and fathers at the same time. Ouch, yet as one fellow said, don't blame the messenger, Google wrote that joke itself.
