Percentage of childen in two-parent homes

I saw this Census survey referenced today, and one of the statistics that caught my eye was:

  • The percentage of children living with two parents varied by race and origin. Eighty-five percent of Asian children lived with two parents, as did 78 percent of white non-Hispanic children, 70 percent of Hispanic children and 38 percent of black children.

Only 38%… The value of a father in a child’s life is so immeasurable. It makes me so utterly sad that nearly 2 out of every 3 black children are growing up in a broken home.
