Anti-Woke Black Leader: ‘Post-Racial’ America Starts with Two-Parent Black Families

An anti-woke black leader denounced the pervasion of racial identity in the country’s culture and urged Americans to achieve a “post-racial” state by encouraging a return to two-parent black families.

At an event sponsored in early November by the Liberty Classical Academy, Minnesota-based TakeCharge President Kendall Qualls addressed the issue of “Envisioning a Post Racial America,” and moving the nation beyond its current laser focus on racial identity.
Qualls, who speaks out regularly against Critical Race Theory, observed that on the day Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated, he was five years old, and “at that time, nearly 80 percent of black children were born in two-parent families”:

In my lifetime, we have seen the black community transformed from 80 percent two-parent families to 80 percent fatherless homes, without one national initiative to reverse the trend. If the American black family was a spotted owl or grey wolf, it would be on the endangered species list. There would be a national campaign to save the black family. There’d be galas, commercials, bumper stickers … My friends, what has happened in the black community is nothing short of a cultural genocide, and it’s the cause of 90 percent of the problems that we face in our communities. Not the mystical systemic racism. This is not the dream that Martin Luther King had in mind, and it’s been a nightmare for children. born during this time. We have been used as political pawns for 50 years and it ends tonight.
The black leader noted to his audience that, while Americans are today “bombarded with messages, that the country is overflowing with white supremacy, systemic racism,” the truth is “we’re actually living in the least racist period in our country’s history:”

But if you listen exclusively to news media, the entertainment industry and what I like to call the academic industrial complex, you would never know the real truth. That this is the least racist period in our country’s history in one of the least racist countries in the world. So having lived through the Jim Crow South, my parents and grandparents would have loved to have grown up in the America that I grew up in.

Qualls explained that, even within his own family of origin, a great contrast exists in the lives of his and his wife’s children and those of some of his siblings:

My children are the only ones that grew up with both a mother and a father in the home. Half their cousins have never finished high school. None have gone on to college. Half my nephews have been incarcerated. My nieces are mothers of children, having never been married. So, how do we explain these differences? Was the systemic racism built into American society? Or was it something else? Well, here you have two tales from the same family, same skin color, yet the disparities are quite broad.

Qualls said that, while he grew up first in Harlem in New York City, and then in a trailer park in Oklahoma, where he was often called “ghetto kid” and “trailer trash,” he was motivated to get an education, which he called “the great equalizer.”

Ultimately, he began a marketing career in the healthcare industry, where, at 36 years old, he became responsible for a $94 million budget.

“Trust me, I tell people all the time, I’m no one exceptional,” Qualls told his audience. “I live in an exceptional country. And I serve an exceptional God. A story like mine can happen … only in America, but it’s happened to millions of people in this country.”
I know what systemic racism is. My parents and grandparents lived through systemic racism. I did not. Over the course of my life … I received help from people, personally and professionally, that didn’t look like me. I received help from people who were black and white, rich and poor, male and female, from all over the country. They helped out of the goodness of their hearts. How do I know that? Because I had nothing to give them … Americans routinely help people who are trying to better their lot in life, and they don’t put a racial filter on it.

“If you look for racism in this country, you’ll find it,” Qualls emphasized. “But if you look for opportunity, you’ll find it 100 times over.”

He invited his audience to observe that many native-born black Americans are “blinded by the tears of anger, mistrust, and misunderstanding,” in contrast to the black Americans who have legally immigrated to the United States from the Caribbean Islands and African nations such as Nigeria.

“They earn significantly more than native born black Americans,” Qualls explained. “They achieve higher levels of education. And they are living the American Dream that civil rights leaders desired for us.”
Qualls urged black Americans to “reconcile with the sins of our nation, re-establish two-parent families, rebuild our culture, and join other Americans around the table of prosperity as fellow citizens of this great country.”

He recommended black Americans begin this transformation by “tapping into the strength of our cultural roots of the black culture, which is linked to our Christian faith”:

Forgiveness is the cornerstone for Christianity. Just as God extends forgiveness to us in Christ, we are called to forgive others. As we take steps to forgive our country for the sins of slavery, Jim Crow laws, and many other forms of bigotry that followed, the heavy burden of bitterness, anger, resentment will be lifted from our shoulders. Our eyes will be open to clearly see the path forward, allowing us to focus on what’s best for our future, and the future of our children.

“I want to be clear: to forgive is an act of strength, not weakness,” Qualls asserted.

“We cannot continue forth as a healthy nation, thinking we are living in two separate Americas, and pitting groups of people against each other,” he emphasized. “It is unsustainable, and it is un-American.”

“We must come together with a renewed hope in our future,” he said, “by returning to trusted foundational values that can see us through a post-racial America, foundational values and behaviors that have weathered the test of time, which include personal responsibility, strong work ethic, pride in one’s nation, faith, two-parent families, and a first-rate education that allows anyone, and yes, I do mean anyone, to achieve their dreams.”

“Many of these new citizens came to the country with intact families, which helped them with achievement and integration,” he added. “But another reason they’ve had success is they haven’t been indoctrinated by years of anti-white, anti-American, and anti-capitalist hatred.”

While I don't disagree with this man and if the world worked correctly his vision would be admirable, he is spitting into the wind at this point.

yah, that can be said about many things.

but if one person is helped by it, or one person has their eyes opened or one person gets the courage and they change or do because of it, it is worth it.


sometimes, it is not about changing the world, just the spot you are in.

Ever since I've moved here, I've been amazed at how casually many AA males approach 'fathering children'. Its like another game to be good at -- seeing how many different women (aka 'baby mommas') he can impregnate and then move on to the next.
I know some who've gone the other way & try to establish a viable family unit but they seem to be fewer rather than most.
A real family, even w/ both parents working to support it, is better by far at putting kids on the right path & keeping them there. I think the day we see more two parent AA families, maybe even some home schooling, will be a point in time worthy of note.

I agree with the OP for the most part. I've never considered myself racist, but I tell you, the longer all this sh*t goes - the riots, the endless "racist racist racist" comments, the orders for whites to admit their "white supremacy" - the more I feel myself becoming aware of race, especially the black race. I find myself staying away and really distrusting any black people. And I never used to be this way. I was always "Hi! How are you?" with a smile. Now I'm silent and don't want to even look at them for fear they will see and act on some emotion that I don't have or show. I feel like I am being judged and treated badly because of my white skin!

I believe that there is NOTHING that white people can do to stop this sh*t. Only the Blacks can stop it. And it will take many years to stop it. It didn't get this bad overnight and it won't be fixed overnight, if ever.

And it has to be done one person at a time, one act at a time. Like they say, "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." And that's what this whole thing is going to need. One little piece at a time. It's going to take each individual Black person to realize, "Hey, I don't have it so bad and I do want to have a positive relationship with my White neighbors," and to act on that in positive ways. Soon, the White neighbors will see the change and will start letting go of the distrust and avoidance of any or all Blacks. But there's been so much damage done, it may not be fixed in our lifetimes.

It's going to take people coming back to God and reading what the Bible says about how we should be treating and working with each other. May God help ALL of His children, no matter the color or sex, to go to Him for guidance and healing.

Neither here nor there.
First they destroyed the NA families, then they went for the black families with the war on poverty, and now they've been gunning for white families for the past 30 years. See a trend? Hispanics and Asians are the only groups pushing back against these monsters.

NOTE that if a white family pushes back they're labeled as white supremacists.
