I called the social security office this morning, to get some information about my daughter' s benefits. For security reasons, he asked me my father's name? Ok. Problem is i never met my dad. But i did remember my mom saying,his name. I told the man this, we laughed, thats a new question social security ask, because of identity theft. My son overheard my conversation... his reply was why would they ask a black person their dad's name? Most black people dont know their father's name!. I had to correct him. Dont sterotype, thats not always true! Deadbeat dads come from all races. Contrary to what my son believe. There are some good black men, that love and take care of their children.
I told my son i hope he one of those good black men. Too add to his thinking, is because his dad abandon him when he was 3, he 19 now. Hopefully he wont repeat this behavior. Was your father around growing up?

My parents were married for 40 years when my mother died. My dad died in 2004. We need more men like my father.

Didn't then and still don't have a relationship with him, he calls from time to time, but i don't have a problem not having a relationship with him.  I needed a father then i'm grown now, and learned on my own through several mistakes so OH WELL!

 I know my father and his name. He was always there and still is. My son's middle name is after my dad. I'm a true daddy's girl.

Yup my mom and dad are still together and have been for 20 years. He isn't black he us white but was very distant to me and my brother but my sisters were his favorite. Now we talk more cause I have kids. But ur right not every deadbeat dad is black. My dfs dad is a deadbeat and in and out of prison and has only met df twice and my df is white. I hate the way people portray blacks.
