Why Don't Black Men Pay Their Child Support and Take Care of their kids?




Tampa, FL November 13, 2010

Black man offers tears, excuses, but no child support

Elijah Dukes sat in front of a Hillsborough judge Wednesday and struggled yet again to explain why he has failed to make child support payments. This time, he broke down in tears.

He owes ex-wife NiShea Gilbert $74,000 in child support and alimony. And court records show that as of September, he owed $35,000 to Carla D. Bryant and $34,000 to Porcia Reneal Daniels, also mothers of his children.

72 percent of BLACK BABIES born to unwed, unmarried, single BLACK WOMEN:

Former Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes sat in front of a Hillsborough judge Wednesday and struggled yet again to explain why he has failed to make child support payments. This time, he broke down in tears.

Dukes became frustrated during a hearing before Judge Liz Rice, in which attorney Carlos Ramirez asked him about his finances.

He owes ex-wife NiShea Gilbert $74,000 in child support and alimony. And court records show that as of September, he owed $35,000 to Carla D. Bryant and $34,000 to Porcia Reneal Daniels, also mothers of his children.

Babies cost money;
Black men without money make the most babies;
Therefore, black men don't pay child support.

So much for Aristotle...anyway, it seems that the ones with the least going on in terms of jobs and prospects make the most babies...go figure...

What a simple minded ASSHole. He should be locked up until he can produce some sort of money for these kids. The Child Support Dept. should have froze all of his assets, long ago. Its a damn shame these women are to blame thinking, because he was Big time ballpalyer, that they were set. Soeme of the blame goes to the women. Let me just hip alot of you wo are single and with no kids, next time you do some over time, watch how much is taking out of your check as apose to someome, who has kids. Single people are paying the way for Idiots like him. Whatever they do to him im all for it. Make him a scapegot and start going after evry man/woman who is not paying support and lock them up. Im tired of paying as a single guy for other peoples kids. the time is the right time to do something drastic by our local and federal govt.

At a hearing May 18, Dukes claimed he spent all but $1,500 of his Major League Baseball retirement account. A judge told him to use what remained to pay his child support. He did not pay and did not appear at subsequent hearings in the case.

Then he was told to take that 1,500 and pay towards his CS., he turned around and said he gave it to a friend? REALLY> yeah ok..
