The professor was not correct, and there is a preponderance of evidence to back this up.

Then you should try a new hobby. There is not a “preponderance of evidence” showing that the professor was wrong. The evidence from demographic studies and census results show that while many families were torn apart by slave auctions; the majority of black families managed somehow to stay together: Anything from 60 to 70% from the sources I am finding, and it varies widely from area to area and period to period.

The evidence all seems to suggest though, that the professor was correct; Answer C would also have been correct, but answer C does not contradict answer D. They are both correct.

The real irony here is that a higher percentage of black Americans seem to have been raised in two parent homes (such as they were) during slavery, than today. That is a pretty shocking indictment of modern culture when you think about it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
