For years, the black male figure has suffered the stigma of being ‘Absent’ or a ‘Dead beat’ dad. Even those who do not have children are still given the stigma that they potentially will not be around or will not step up to the parental plate.
Through research, we have even seen that those who are accepted as parents are often considered as ‘part-time’ parents compared to other racial communities.
Through generations, the black male figure’s has suffered and sometime had to adapt to the stigma due to trauma, misguidance and miseducation. Only having these tools to pass down to future generations.
