A Father's Day ad by a Minnesota-based group is recruiting "a few good men" to help resurrect the two-parent black family.

"We hope you're having a Happy Father's Day. In our lifetime, the black family has declined from approximately 80 percent two-parent to 80 percent fatherless homes without one national initiative to reverse the trend – until now!"

The ad was created by TakeCharge board President Kendall Qualls and members of the organization. The organization rejects Black Lives Matter and the current woke culture, including Critical Race Theory.

The Black family disintegrated in the 1960s and '70s due to welfare programs that forced Black men out of the home.

Black single women became pregnant in order to earn more welfare checks per child, thereby deteriorating the Black family even more.

In the 1960s, 80% of Black families were led by males. Today, 80% of Black households are led by single mothers.

The group created the Twin Cities campaign to return the black community to its glory, "cultural roots of faith, family, and education."

Qualls, a former U.S. army officer and high-ranking executive of Fortune 100 healthcare companies, told Breitbart News in early June his message that "America – and the idea of America – works" is central to the efforts of TakeCharge.

"If it can work for a guy like me, who started his life in Harlem, New York, as a kid, then later lived in a trailer park in Oklahoma,” he said. "And I tell people, 'Look, I've been called trailer trash, ghetto kid, and a lot worse. But, in this country, where you start in life is not where you have to stay in life."

"And that message resonates with people," Qualls said.

Father's Day is this Sunday, June 20, a time for children to show their dads how much they love and appreciate them.

While the holiday pales in comparison to Mother's Day, experts say fathers are more important to a child's development than mothers.

Radio host Steve Harvey, a father of four, said this about Father's Day: "Father's Day dwarfs in comparison to Mother's Day. It's actually embarrassing. Ain't no restaurants sold out..."

And radio personality Ryan Cameron, a father of three, said Father's Day is the most disrespected holiday - and he's tired of the disrespect.

If you are a successful businesswoman, your father probably had a lot to with the direction you've taken in life.

According to childcare experts, there are many factors that influence a young girl’s future, and a good dad is the key to success

Research has shown a strong father-daughter bond may play an important role in the kind of woman a little girl grows up to be.

Girls who had hands-on fathers during their early stages of development grew up to be healthier physically, were less likely to be depressed, and were less likely to become pregnant during their high school or college years.

More than 1 in 4 children in America live in a fatherless home. 3 out of 4 children are raised in single mother households in the Black community.

But there is good news.

A recent study shows dads are spending more time with their children today than they did two generations ago.

A father's love is key to the way daughters view relationships with other men. If a father isn't there during a daughter's formative years, his absence can cause drama in her life later on.

A new study recently published by a college professor finds that the American media portrayal of Black men "perpetuates many of the same, negative patterns that are common in popular culture."

Armon Perry, a professor of social work at the University of Louisville, spent two decades reviewing research on Black men and families.

The research falls into one of two categories: many Black men are "disproportionately low income," and "poor Black men reject monogamous romantic relationships in favor of a hypersexual masculinity to overcompensate for their inability to fulfill the traditional breadwinner role."

Other studies found that Black males desire intimacy and companionship in stable relationships. But the economic disparities they face in every day American society is one of the factors in their struggles to maintain stable monogamous relationships.

In his 4 year study, Perry followed 33 Black men from Louisville, Kentucky. He found that "the near-exclusive focus on low-income Black men in research related to the family skews perceptions of these men."

He found that the skewed perceptions of low income men reinforce negative stereotypes that portray Black males as dangerous and predatory.

Many of the Black men Perry interviewed credited their partners with making them better husbands, fathers and men.

According to one of the participants, "I always tell her that I couldn't have become who I am without her. Meeting the right person... is probably the most important decision I've made in my life."

Perry's findings, which counter the popular image that society holds of Black men, are published in his book: "Black Love Matters: Authentic Men's Voices on Marriage and Romantic Relationships."

Bill Cosby Talks to Don Lemon

Comedian and philanthropist Bill Cosby says there are some serious issues affecting black America and he knows how to solve them.

In an interview with CNN's Don Lemon, Cosby, 76, said black women are the majority head of households, and he wants to see more black men taking responsibility for their sons.

“I think it has to come from the universities,” he said. "I think, women, strongly because when you see 70 percent, in research, that says they are the leaders of the household, what we need is for people to realize I want to raise my kid. I want to go back and get my three kids. I want to take on that responsibility. I want to love my children.”

Cosby also criticized "no-gross" who don't provide solutions but are quick to blame him for focusing on the problems in the black community.
