Or just stop rewarding negative behavior.

If all a single mother has to do is get a raise is to trick some poor sap into knocking her up what is her reason not to. The state ensures that the man sends her a check, the state sends her a check. Also the state takes care of child care, room and board. The single mother just has to be a "single mother".

From Wa Po:

A Reuters headline from 2007 proclaimed, “Father absence ‘decimates’ black community in U.S.”

President Obama has been one of the biggest advocates of this idea. In a 2008 speech delivered on Father’s Day at a church on Chicago’s South Side, the first viable black candidate for president of the United States chastised black fathers. Too many black fathers, he said, are missing from too many lives and too many homes. “They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. We know the statistics — that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison,” Obama said. “They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it.”
It became a staple in his speeches delivered to majority- or all-black audiences. As recently as last year, Obama said at a poverty summit, “I am a black man who grew up without a father and I know the cost that I paid for that.”

However, responsible fatherhood only goes so far in a world plagued by institutionalized oppression. For black children, the presence of fathers would not alter racist drug laws, prosecutorial protection of police officers who kill, mass school closures or the poisoning of their water.

And that's probably the last time he mentioned anything about fatherless Black families, and it's not true that drug use wouldn't be affected as Black fathers could put some whoop ass on their sons and make sure they received a good education, did their homework, and stayed away from street gangs.
As it stands now inner city Black men strive to have as many kids as possible, and inner city women have incentive to have several kids to increase their welfare check sizes. Basketball, sex, hip-hop, rap, and selling drugs seems to be the benchmark that most inner city Blacks aspire to.

There is no substitute for children raised w/ two parents.

Why people try to argue against it is beyond me. For some reason or another single motherhood is something to be revered and rewarded. What a Great Society.
