The Illinois Central Theory Of Black Dysfunction

The Illinois Central theory of black dysfunction

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has a decent website of social statistics by state. Above is their map of % of black children living in two parent families, with stronger colors being better. Not surprisingly, the best percentages are found in states that blacks get to mostly through the military. Hawaii and North Dakota are tied for best at 65%. 

Wisconsin and Illinois are worst at 30%. It`s kind of the Illinois Central Railroad (“I`m the train they call `The City of New Orleans`”) theory of the geographic distribution of black dysfunction.
