    Black Family Structure!?

    Is it in danger of colapse or erosion?! Are these false prophets of independance dooming our very fabric that has glued us together for centuries...?!

    Tell me more..

    familiy structure on a whole is in bad shape. but there are a lot of reasons, i.e. lying unfaithful spouses, poor communication in relationships on a whole, and so on, that are also contributing to the problem.

    that was more for oneshot.. But you can read it later the views are quite interesting.. I will copy a paragraph..

    In tribal Africa, the most important aspect of life and survival was the family. Unlike the European concept of family, the African family structure consisted of the entire community. In essence, ancestral and actual blood lines were not the primary basis for defining a family. This type of family structure continues to exist today. The institution of "fictive kin" (which consisted of individuals throughout the community) during slavery and thereafter enabled individuals to protect one another whether or not they were related. Once again, we witness how the communal bond that existed in tribal African families corresponds to contem porary black American families.

    I think it is the intrusion of society.. This book I read was quite interesting

    Haven in a Heartless World: The Family Besieged: by Christopher Lasch.

    The society we live today makes it very difficult for us to have this family structure. Is it possible for us to get it back? I should hope so.

    Yeah....I definitely agree....but nowadays....nobody wants anyone to speak or discipline their kids so that whole structure which was passed down from our African ancestors is being replaced with more Western ideologies
