The culture and the media has so relegated the role of the man in the home and the society so much that even the men are themselves out of tune with the reality of who they are.
The absence of real men at their duty posts in the home has led to the sliding down of the moral standards in the society.
Today, four in ten of homes are without a dad. But the statistics are graver among African Americans, where as many as seven out of every ten homes are without a dad. Children are raised by single moms, and in many cases, by grandparents. All of this has come to compounds high school dropout rates and failure rates, and highlights a need to challenge our men to man up.
