Bachmann, Santorum Right About Two Parent Families Under Slavery


John McWhorter, in The New Republic, "semi-defends" the Marriage Vow's "slavery passage" as factually accurate and revealing an important truth:

"The factual essence, then, of the now-infamous line in The Family Leader’s pledge represents a truth that all should take to heart: Black people, like all human beings, are capable of great resilience in the face of difficulty; and culture—there, I said it—is not just a lockstep response to the GDP or racism. This is the lesson we should learn from how uncommon single parenthood was among black people familiar with slavery, lynching, and Jim Crow."
