Incredibles costume

This image of a black family decked out in their Incredibles costumes brought tears to my eyes. Yes, 70% of black families are fatherless, but there are millions of single moms out there doing an incredible job raising their children.

I am reminded every day that black men are willing and ready to step in and be role models to fatherless children. This is how we make our community strong and proud.

Always put the children first in your lives! And remember that a daddy doesn’t have to be biological.

If you observe Halloween, be safe and don’t forget to examine the candy!

    ? Sandra’s came naturally as she aged. I remember her mentioning her cataracts at her 68th BBQ bday bash back in 2012.?

  • Di Ana

    Am I missing something? Sandra said that seeing the picture brought tears to her eyes. what’s so wrong with that??

  • BrownIsBack

    I want that fro!

  • Buttercup

    Yes, 70% of black children are born to women who aren’t wed. Fixed that for you. You just couldn’t resist, huh?

  • @djangothegod
    And remember that a daddy doesn’t have to be biological.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    I shouldn’t have read that story. It pissed me off.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    My favorite song by her. It’s hard watching those videos after seeing the movie.

  • Buttercup

    It’s okay. Not everyone has the same level of comprehension. If you think you can long and hard enough, even you can elevate your level of thinking 😉

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    They need to file a civil suit against him.

  • nucynu25

    I think its the infatuated statistics … Its almost like the “Oh, you’re pretty for a blk girl thing .” or the you Dont act like the rest of them ….

  • @djangothegod

    You can tell that’s the south by the trees. Even though you can barely see the houses.

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’ 2 : Electric Boogaloo

    Hey good morning?? My weekend twernt too bad, thanks for asking? Got my booty ate, twice?? Won a lil money. Identified the source of that foul odor in my room (a soiled pair of drawls under the bed) Yeah, life ain’t so bad?

  • Str8tUpMenace

    SMFH @ Sandra.

    Beautiful family!!!!!

  • Buttercup

    Nope. Knock ’em to the ground.

  • nucynu25

    Thanks luv

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I love it. I can just smell the coconut oil through my phone. Beautiful family.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    That too but they can’t ‘officially’ do that. Someone in the comments section has posted his address.

    “Examine Deez…”
    ————–
    Got cha! this is NOT an Open Post! Take care hun (and this time, it’s for real). ?

  • missmiami305

    Well said. Love this picture as well. Enjoy and be safe!

  • Renee26

    I know that’s right…I was thinking well I must be surrounded by the upper echelon of black people because just about every man on my FB is active in his children’s life and there are soooo many black families.

  • Di Ana

    I was touched by the fact that Sandra said the picture brought tears to her eyes. Normally Sandra can be cold.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Sandy (or Intern), the shade is real.
    How do you know that is not the bio daddy?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    So we should ignore the statistic that says 70% of black families are headed by single mothers?

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Says who?
    You know “they” skew the numbers.
    This I know for fact!

  • MissHarlem

    ? hey boo. Ugh to the bs

  • hottlanta

    Wow black families are fatherless while white families like Trump got 5 kids with 3 different baby mammas. If he wins the White House will turn into the Maury Povich show, “you are not the father”. White kids are so blessed.

  • Di Ana

    I luv looking at this beautiful black family as well.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks, hun! I don’t understand why the truth bothers us so.

  • Renee26

    She made up her own statistics

  • nucynu25

    I get it …but I feel shade even when the breeze ain’t blowing .

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Anyway, I’m looking for new shows to watch. Any suggestions?????

  • Buttercup

    That number could be skewed, but it doesn’t mean that 70% of black children are fatherless. Studies have shown that black men are the most involved fathers when compared to other groups.

  • Low E. TUH!

    WE SHOULD PROBABLY RESEARCH THE FIRM WHO CALCULATED THE STATS…IT COULD BE THAT THEY INTENTIONALLY ENSURE THAT THE STATS SHOW US IN A BAD LIGHT. 70% OF THE SAMPLE CONDUCTED IN A NOT SO GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD AND 30% CONDUCTED IN A MIDDLE/UPPER MIDDLE CLASS AREA WOULD YIELD THESE SAME RESULTS. BAD SAMPLING…

  • Di Ana

    lol… ????…. I couldn’t believe it either, that’s why I was so taken aback???

  • charallday

    My fave song from her as well….I was just listening to hang time on YouTube and someone said they didn’t know it was her and thought it was Adina Howard lol

  • AL Dunbar

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Yeah it is I just watched season 3 this weekend.

  • nucynu25

    Auntie am not new here . I can say that this is probably one of the sweetest things you have written but even sweet things leave an after taste . it was a back handed complimentin IMO . I believe that you could hve made a better compliment by not mentioning the negative or sensationalizing biased & infatuated statistics . When you see a white family have you ever said “Wow, Becky & Tim have a beauitiful family . Its so beautiful to see little Billy hasn’t grown up to shoot up a school. ” So if you wouldn’t do it to them why do it to us ?

  • @djangothegod

    You finished Atlanta?

  • KB

    Very positive post Sandra, thank you. I love this picture & the movie is one of my favs.

  • nucynu25

    Positive

  • Blak

    I have to say this, and Sandra will agree…ONLY single black mothers get defensive and say things like “I’m a good mother” (due to guilt??) and would see the post as a back handed compliment. Statistically kids raised by a single mother do worse then kids growing up in a stable, two parent home because of the economical advantage and values provided by a stable 2 parent home and a masculine, male figure taking care of the family and this is something that shouldn’t even be debated because it’s a fact. A single mother that kicks the father out is selfish and only thinking about herself and ego because she is a “good mom” immediately putting the kid at an economical disadvantage and of course, if the kid is black will fare worse. It is rare to see a united black family with mom, dad and kids and when I seen that pic, I actually thought the same thing even before clicking the link to read. Sandra, just go a head and continue to stir the pot by being honest and pointing out the obvious to kool aid sippers.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    It HURTS! *twists in agony*

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I like Bull, Pitch, Lethal Weapon, Rosewood, NCIS New Orleans, Speechless.

  • just being me

    Facts are 70 % of most black families are not fatherless .. The amount of fathers in the home is about equal among minorities and non minorities

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Shoot, I forgot about Atlanta. Gotta add that to the list.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I started Lethal Weapon, but only two episodes so far. *adds the rest to my list*

  • Gabriella Greentree

    Containment and Celia on Netflix

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I hope those of us who didn’t have a father in the home and felt lonely and abandoned continue to heal and that is my prayer for us! It’s been a journey having friends who had good dads and I didn’t so much. I know him but I been thru a lot. It makes I even question GOD sometimes bc it’s not fair but it’s my hope that GOD has something special for us waiting In out futures ??????Amen

  • Incog-knee-gress

    If you have Netflix: The Get Down and Luke Cage and Jessica Jones.

  • Di Ana

    Are we sure she wrote the line that looking at the picture brought tears to her eye? Maybe the rest but that line right there and got me?

  • Incog-knee-gress

    These are next on our Netflix lists.

  • MookieFly

    I was about to say…one step forward, two steps back smh

  • nucynu25

    You said a lot of nothing.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Absolutely!
    I am disagreeing with the 70%

  • Buttercup

    If you think it’s a rarity to see a united, black family, then you need to move around.

  • Lisa daniels

  • Zebra Stripes

    Chile….

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    No , it is not.
    She wrote that the man in the picture is NOT their father, as if NO Black man takes care of his OWN seed.
    It is a dig.

    So how do we know this is a “superfamily” unless you know them personally. If the fact that you see mother father & kids does that prove much of anything? Are they married? Does he live with them? I think if you look harder you will see black families however not all post family pics online. And some would question the fact that they are allowing their kids to celebrate this so called holiday. I know folks find statistics the proof of their argument but who made these stats?? All I know is what you see as a positive thing throws shame on adults that raise healthy kids. Just because we see man, woman & kids it has no right to be counted as the best or better. Look behind the stats do you really believe what you read but not what you have researched on your own??

    Beautiful Family!!! I wasn’t raised in a fatherless home and was surrounded by positive black married couples w/ children all my life. It wasn’t until I got older (around 10) that I realized most homes in my neighborhood were fatherless. I even got teased for having a dad in my house (wtf type ish is that). I hate to say it but most of my girls who I grew up without a father either had kids super early, met an old man with money to live with, or latching on to a worthless man who doesn’t want to be kept anyway. SMH Im glad to see that black family dynamics are being turned around. It warms my heart when I see a black family supporting and loving each other.

    It takes a while I hate to admit but as a kid I was bussed to a “white school” all of my friends that lived on my block went to the neighborhood school only one of them had a dad in the household besides me. We would both get teased and at one point I felt ashamed about my dad. But when I went to my “white school” the kids had both parents. Thinking back to it I feel ashamed now typing it but I love my Daddy and I wouldn’t know where I would be without him.

  • Buttercup

    My BFF I met in college grew up in a “2 parent household.” By that I mean her parents lived under one roof and didn’t speak to each other in over a decade. After giving each other the silent treatment, they were all lovey-dovey only for her dad to leave and start a life with his new family. He left her mother with not one red cent in the bank. I guess him not leaving her with any money really mattered. He only contributed less than $350 towards the household bills and mortgage which was half of what their expenses were when they married in the early 80s.

    Exactly

  • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    Imma pull a “You” on this one Sandra.. I didn’t say that there weren’t alot of households that were single parent led. I said there are a ton of men who loved and adore their kids..ie just because the parents aren’t “together” doesn’t mean the father has abandoned the kid. They love and take care of them still. And there are a lot of black two parent households than is being portrayed. Now whether YOUR statistics are going by married couples or just domestic couples or both is the question I would like an answer to. I know a lot of families where the parents aren’t married..but together and plan on staying that way.. sooo…your turn… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68bc52b2a4f54f3dc0d4dea29ec0c12c203c19b65d4d18beb2fbbd13d0be6a55.gif

    Agreed. All the black men I know live in the house with their children and are either married or engaged to their mothers. I know there are lots of broken families but let’s not act like they all are.

    Way to highlight the negative. Smh.

  • iWasteTime

    It is funny what you remember. As a child my dad liked to imbibe, he came to my bday party barely standing. The next day I complained to a few of my older female cousins and they said at least you know who your dad is. I’d give anything for mine to come any where in any condition. I never complained about him again.

    You can’t be serious. There’s a reason there’s a high percentage of BLACK KIDS are in Child Protective Services. Also, research how many BLACK KIDS are available for adoption. Probably, 90% of black men eventually leave their black baby mamas. Also, most of these men have additional baby mama’s and the current woman/baby mama he’s with! Not enough time in the day to work and parent all those different households.

    Hahahaha those same statistics compiled by non-ethnic supporting government statisticians? First of all lets examine some biases: Not all Black families (like my own) include kids; not ALL Black families are surveyed OR respond to such surveys; WHERE is this information gathered from; How many is 70 percent (specifically how large is that sample size); What about non-ethnic reporting (I personally have NEVER chosen to check an ethnicity box on ANY application except passport); etc; etc; etc; etc…. We could go on forever deconstructing loose, non-discrete math such as statistics.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I have worked for company that do stats and trust, the numbers were ALWAYS skewed.

    Well good for your kids! But just go into any low income area in any random city in America and the standard family is headed by a single mother; the household is clearly at an economical disadvantage compared to a two parent, two income, middle class household. Doesn’t matter about what race they are! Blacks unfortunately tend to do worse economically in a low income situation – is this fiction as well? Stats don’t need to be posted; just the way the sentence was framed should say enough. Oh by the way, a majority of these angry baby mamas living in the hood will always say that they are a “great mom” completely ignoring the psychological effects that their horrible behaviour is having on the kids along with the socioeconomical impact (poor schools/limited access to education, poor nutrition, low morale, dysfunctional household etc). The fact that you are saying your kids are ok just speaks volumes as to why this is an issue; you just think about yourself, not even your kids, but yourself. People of other races never say this because they simple don’t need to. Think about that.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    My youngest child is a straight A student. Studying dance, piano, and 2 foreign languages. She is an advanced placement English and math student. She goes to one of the best schools in our city based on test scores. It also happens to be located in a high crime area, but it is a magnet school, that is diverse. So she interacts with children of all backgrounds.

    Her nutrition is good.

    Her morale is very excellent.

    My oldest is good. Taking college courses. Working. Managed to not become a teen parent.

    No dysfunction over here.

    All of this is about my children, not just myself.

    God bless you and Godspeed.

  • Blak

    So in other words, you are one of the 30% of two parent black families, right?

  • Blak

    Ok so based on your comments, clearly you cannot keep a male figure in your household to help raise the kids and you over compensate with the “I’m a good mom” and extracurricular activities…we get it. There are a lot of single parent households that are struggling and a minority of them will have kids that do well, but the fact that you are disputing the FACT that low socioeconomical households are at a disadvantage compared to a two parent, stable, middle class, double income family speaks volumes on your level of denial and intelligence on this subject. Let’s put it this way; whose fridge will have more groceries – the one with a $150 a week budget in a middle class neighborhood or the one with $50 a week budget in the hood? Kicking the male out of the household to have a lifelong marriage to the welfare system as the primary income earner has been the worse thing that black women have done to their families; along with having multiple fathers. Just look at how society has evolved since the civil rights era when there was more two parent families in the picture. And yes, I realize that not all single black mothers are not on welfare and have jobs, but again, it’s still a low income unless you are in a professional occupation. So many black women are having kids so young and it takes a hit on their education so again, that impacts them intellectually and financially. Yes, so of them “make it” we can go on and on, bottom line, two parent, stable home with one father will always be better then single angry mom, multiple fathers with low to no income. Just accept the facts and be thankful that you are a “good mom”

  • Jamal Warner

    This article is not entirely accurate. “70% of black families are fatherless”, which sounds like black women are having children without male sperm. Marriage as a total has decreased in the last few decades. People are not getting married as they once were getting married. Secondly, the figure only means that when people had a child they were not married, but says nothing about them getting married later. The CDC, recently released a study that actually shows black fathers are more attentive to their kids than their white counters in the early stages of life. The figure is meant to continue the false perpetuation of the “dead beat black father”, when in reality it is a small percentage of men who do not take care of their children. Most black men that have children take care of them. Let’s keep it classy because the world is full of people who are trying everyday to attack the black family. It is even worse when we have African people hating their own skin and attacking the black family. Go Figure!
