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.

Rapper NBA YoungBoy dumped Iyanna 'Yaya' Mayweather for another Instagram model before YaYa welcomed the couple's son.

Yaya took to Instagram on Saturday to share a photo of the newborn baby's foot. "From the very moment you arrived, I felt something new inside," she wrote, quoting Queen Naija's song "Mama's Hand."

"I developed a love that was so unconditional and I promise to give you everything that I have."

Yaya hasn't announced the name of her first child.

Champion boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr., 43, probably wanted more for his youngest daughter than for her to be a single mom at age 20.

Yaya was arrested in April 2020 for stabbing one of YoungBoy's 7 baby mamas during a heated confrontation at NBA YoungBoy's home.

Jacobs, 35, suffered multiple lacerations to her arm.

Yaya's half-siblings are Zion, 19, Koraun, 21, and Jirah, 17. Yaya's mother is boutique owner Melissia Brim, 45.

Kanye West is reportedly "sad, but okay" over his impending divorce from socialite Kim Kardashian.

According to PEOPLE, a source close to the couple says Kim is delaying filing divorce papers to figure out a way to protect the couple's four children during the divorce process.

"He knows that she's done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future," a source told PEOPLE, adding that Kanye is waiting to be served with the divorce papers.

Meanwhile, the single mom has dropped subtle hints of her single status all along. She recently shared a photo of her naked ring finger as well as a sleepover with another divorcee, La La Anthony.

Your auntie told you last year, Kim and Kanye have been living separately for at least a year with Kanye spending the majority of his time in Wyoming while she was in Calabasas with their 4 children, North, 7, Saint, 5, Chicago, 2, and 1-year-old Psalm.

Kim, who kept divorce maven Laura Wasser, on Speed dial for years, began seriously considering filing months ago during the Covid-19 lockdowns.

Kim and Kanye tied the knot on May 24, 2014 after dating for several years.

Khloe Kardashian has apparently accepted Tristan Thompson's cheating ways. Khloe and Tristan have dated on and off since 2016. They share a 2-year-old daughter, True Thompson.

They first broke up in 2018 when footage of the NBA star kissing another woman went viral.

This week, Khloe, 36, cracked jokes about Tristan's philandering while she was in quarantine after she tested positive for Covid-19.

She created a female out of a pillow which she named "Quarantina." Then she called Tristan to introduce him to her new friend.

"This is quarantina… I know how much you like other women, so...," she said.

A surprised Tristan replied: "Oh wow!"

Later Khloe praised 29-year-old Tristan for being attentive to her and True, while h*e hopping.

"I'm so thankful that Tristan has been here to help me take care of True. And then he'll just make me some food and leave it outside my door. Even though we're not together, we're just really good friends and I'm really, really grateful for that."

Kelly Rowland is doing everything in her power to ensure her son Titan's childhood is more "stable" than her own.

The 39-year-old single mom grew up as the daughter of Doris who left Kelly's abusive alcoholic father, Christopher, when Kelly was six years old.

Doris then took on a job as a nanny to make ends meet for Kelly, but the disruptive nature of the role meant the former Destiny's Child star felt insecure as a child.

Now that she is single, having split from her estranged husband, Tim Weatherspoon, last year, Kelly is determined to ensure her 5-year-old son Titan has a happy and secure childhood.

"I felt like as a kid, my mom had this job - she was a nanny," Kelly told Extra TV. "That moved her around a lot... I just wanted it to be stable a little more. With him - he doesn't really have to want for anything."

Titan's father, Tim, is still a big part of his life -- which is very important -- but Kelly has primary custody of her son since she is the main breadwinner.

"I'm working my butt off for [Titan], and his life is going to be different from mine, period," Kelly told Extra TV.

Kelly home schools Titan while schools are closed during the coronavirus pandemic. But the job is much harder than she ever anticipated. The "Coffee" singer laughs that teachers definitely need a raise once the lockdown is over.

"I'm scratching my head, because sometimes you go through that whole phase, 'I'm not a teacher, oh, I'm doing good at this, no, I don't have the patience for this.' Teachers need a raise, so many things!" she said.

Brandy dropped a new single to honor single mothers, entitled "Baby Mama" featuring Chance The Rapper. Brandy said the inspiration for the song is her 17-year-old daughter, Sy'rai Iman Smith.

"The inspiration for Baby Mama was of course my daughter and how she makes me a better person. I wanted to do a song about her and speak to all baby mama's out there that may feel like they can't make it or they can't push through, you know, if you use your child as an inspiration you can do anything and I want to everybody to feel that. I have to give Chance The Rapper a huge shout out, he spit a really really dope verse on it and I’m so pleased with it. – Love, Brandy."

The music video was directed by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks with creative direction by Frank Gatson. Gatson is the friend who called 911 the night of Jussie Smollett's unfortunate career-ending incident in Chicago last year.

Brandy is asking for donations to Homes for the Holidays, part of Warrick Dunn Charities to benefit single parent families in need.

Homes for the Holidays partners with affordable housing providers to reduce the financial burden on single parent homeowners by fully furnishing their new house, providing down payment assistance, and stocking the pantry with food and other household necessities. Since 1997, "Homes for the Holidays" has rewarded 177 single parents and 477 children and dependents.
 

Back in the day, a single mother with 6-12 kids lived the good life while collecting government checks for each child. Sadly, those gravy days are over.

A mother of 11 is facing eviction after she was laid off before Christmas. Jessica Sumlin, of Whitehaven, near Memphis, is struggling to find work to support her 11 children.

"If I had family to go to - like immediate family - I'd go and ask them, but I don't have any immediate family. It's just me and my kids," she told Fox13Memphis.com.

On her GoFundMe page, Sumlin said she and her kids lived with her mom until she got pregnant again.

"I had a newborn so we couldn't stay there, and during this time I got a storage... which, after renting for a month, they informed me that someone had broke in and stole all me and my children's things."

She said kindhearted friends helped her move into an empty house and she's asking for donations to fix up the home. The house she moved into has black mold and no heat.

According to Fox13Memphis.com, Sumlin was laid off after 12 years at Taco Bell because she was a high-risk pregnancy. She said she found a temporary job in November, but she was laid off again just days before Christmas. She tried applying for jobs to make ends meet.

Now she is close to eviction and her lights are due to be cut off for nonpayment.

"My rent man constantly calling and texting me saying that I'm past due in rent.

A GoFundMe page raised over $9,800 of a $2,000 goal.

Twitter users weighed in with their own opinions about her situation.

Freshman Michael Todd said he was bullied in school his whole life because his single mom didn't have enough money to buy new clothes for him to wear.

Todd was having a hard time fitting in at Martin Luther King Prep in Memphis, TN. He was bullied for wearing the same clothes to school every day.

"I don't really have clothes at home. My mom can't buy clothes for me because I'm growing too fast," he told Fox 13 in Memphis, TN.

After being bullied by ruthless classmates, two high school football players stepped in to help Todd out.

Kristopher Graham and Antwan Garrett surprised Todd by gifting him with bags of clothes and shoes from their own closets, according to Fox 13.

"I said, 'You know, we was in the same third period. I apologize for laughing at you and I want to give something to you to make it up,'" Graham told Fox 13 Memphis.

"I was shocked, completely… You guys are awesome," said Todd.

"It was a weak moment for me, I was crying," Garrett said.

"And then I almost cried when we had lunch, he told me, he was like, 'You know, you two the only two to actually ever give me a gift,'" Graham said.
