MLK Day Message

To all parents:
I want to inform you of the most important and overlooked agenda item for 2015: fatherlessness and its consequences.
As we all know the Michael Brown story allowed the media to focus on police violence toward young black men.  A few pundits pointed out that young black men were in much more danger of being killed by other black men than by the police and that this can be traced back to the fact that more than 70% of black children (over 50% for Hispanics and over 40% for American kids in general) grow up in single parent homes, almost always with a single mother.
But what no prominent media pundits or politicians have noticed is that our current family court system is the cause of a good deal of fatherlessness by giving financial incentives for keeping the second parent away.
You can get a glimpse of this issue by watching the trailer for the new film DivorceCorp  (www.divorcecorp.com) or by visiting this new blog: kidsmagnacarta.com.
The name refers to the 800 year anniversary of the Magna Carta, which, for the first time in history, limited a monarch’s power.
We believe that similar measures should be taken to limit the power of family court judges to exclude (or severely limit) a child’s access to a parent.
Sincerely,
K. James Shaw
San Diego Director
