Recently Chuck Thinks Right pointed out that GOP Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann signed The Marriage Vow, which includes the following statement:
"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President..."The passage, which was on the front page of The Marriage Vow, has since been removed. Read the details HERE.
FEATURED QUESTION in two parts (Thanks, Chuck, for these questions): (1) Is the statement untrue? (2) Is there anything in the statement that supports slavery? After all, did the statement not start with "Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families"?
