George Karl is right about Black players. A lot of black male dysfunction is due to Fatherless homes.
“Kenyon and Carmelo carried two big burdens: all that money and no father to show them how to act like a man,” wrote George Karl in his new book.
So let's get this straight, Black Men 18-44 (4% of US population) commit 52% of all murders, generally they score abysmally on SAT and IQ tests, many of them walk around with their drawers showing, they blame white people for everything and George Karl, a guy who deals almost solely with young African American men can't say anything about what may be at the root of this dysfunction and how it even creeps into the NBA?? Seventy-five percent of black children are born into fatherless homes. In Democratically run inner cities the number is much higher. Do you think that young black men would walk around with their underwear showing if they had to walk past a man before leaving the house?? If you say yes then you are more racist than many are claiming George Karl is. You are doubting the principles of would be black fathers. The majority of the black men I know would not let their sons walk around showing their buttocks all day. Do you think a young black man could rob a liquor store, fight with a law enforcement officer or beat up a woman if he had a strong man was in the home?? Could you imagine a young black man calling home from the precinct and saying "Dad, I know I hit that old lady upside the head and stole her purse but it wasn't my fault. White supremacy made me do it". Really?? If you think that black men are okay with this foolishness then you are more racist than you are claiming George Karl to be.
I was raised in a single mother home. I was a latch key kid at age 7. I could've done whatever I wanted. Many young black kids do. They don't have guidance. Many of these single mothers are violent and make poor decisions choosing men. Many of their children end up being abused or molested by men they bring into the home. One income stream forces families to live in ghettos and war zones. I have worked, lived and gone to school with the products of these homes and sadly I can now speak to a young black man for a few minutes and with great accuracy determine whether or not he had a dad in his life. Why did former NBA commissioner David Stern have to institute a zero tolerance dress code for all players?? Because he's dealing with a population of men who were raised in harsh environments by single women. He had to be their daddy. This is the conundrum. Fatherless homes are clearly a problem in the black community but because a white man highlighted it, it will go ignored and dismissed as racism.

Update: I have received a ton of backlash from African Americans who object to and dispute the stat that I used at the beginning of the article. So let me break it down and explain it for many who are confused. Yes, African Americans comprise 13% of the US population (roughly 40 million people) but that includes babies, old ladies, little girls, senior citizens, transgenders, etc. This is the crucial part so pay attention black folks. Black Men ages 18-44 comprise 4% of the US population (roughly 14 million people). Get it. We are only talking about Black men ages 18-44. That's it. This group makes up 4% of the US population because as you remember, we aren't counting babies, seniors and other blacks that aren't males between the ages of 18 and 44. Got it. This group which makes up 4% of the total US population commits 52% of all murders in the United States annually. So yes, white women kill people, Hispanic midgets kill people, Native American senior citizens kill people but all those people combined murder less than black men 18-44. If this did not help you understand the stat at the beginning of the article then you need to go back to school or jump off of a bridge.
