David, I believe you are correct that the solution lies in having marginalized people work within the system to affect change. Much of the problems are not just the absence of fathers, but the sad, neutering of black/brown men in our economy and government. Their children see no hope in joining or confronting the system and often chose to work around the system, dropping out or joining a community of crime. Both fathers and mothers need to become part of society and demand full participation in business and government. It will not be easy. The President is shamed and ridiculed mercilessly, but he is leading by example and showing his daughters that there is a price to pay for personal power and self esteem. No one owes this to you and, yes, it takes hard work, but the result is worth the labor.
