The effects of slavery also influenced the economic life of African Americans. For men, stable, good paying jobs were and are scarce due to racial discrimination.
Becoming a young adult already has its share of personal issues, but having absent parents can result in loss of knowledge or wisdom. Teens are more likely to become pregnant if one or both parents are absent in the child’s life. “The impact of father absence on early sexual activity and teenage pregnancy was investigated in longitudinal studies in the United States (N = 242) and New Zealand (N = 520), in which community samples of girls were followed prospectively from early in life (5 years) to approximately age 18.
