Professor Blames Single Mothers For Poor College Performance Of Black Students
A Texas professor is catching an ear full from single mothers and minority activists groups across the country following statements that he made in an interview as to the reason behind poor academic achievement among African-American college students.
The babbling educator threw some major shade towards single mothers in the black community, insisting many of them lack the proper education and income to effectively raise children that will excel in college.

A professor at the University of Texas has sparked controversy following remarks that black students are failing academically because so many are raised in single parent households.
In an interview with BBC’s Radio 4, law professor Lino Graglia said “I can hardly imagine a less beneficial or more deleterious experience than to be raised by a single parent,” Graglia said. “Usually a female, uneducated and without a lot of money.”
He went onto to say, on average, prospective black college students score 200 points lower than their white counterparts in SAT tests. According to the 82-year-old almost three-quarters of black children are born outside of marriage, which stifles their success.
We know plenty of single mothers, educated and not,who work very hard and pride themselves on providing the best that they can in all areas for their children, who often go on to excel academically, professionally and personally, so this rambling idiot can have several seats.
