AND double update - following a link from the comments by Mr. Bingley, to Ms. Sister's citation of Roland Martin.
National Vital Statistics Reports, Vol. 56, No. 7, December 5, 2007
From the table on page 6, percentage of out-of wedlock births in 2006 by race:
All Races 38.5%
Non-Hispanic white 26.6%
Non-Hispanic black 70.7%
If this offends, your argument is not with me but with the Centers for Disease Control.
