Interesting.Garvey's book reveals that the ratio of black men incarcerated in his time is the exact ratio as today..
If this was indeed the case, then suffice it to say that the current situation with which we have black males going to jail, is more than just fathers being absent from home.
Can we agree that the family unit was tighter back in the days of garvey then it is today?
However, if we insist that fatherless homes contribute to the high incarceration rate of black men, then what contributed to the high incarceration rate during the time of garvey?
