"Unwed fathers"

From the new National Review:
Bill Cosby continues to do a world of good. With his longtime collaborator Alvin F. Poussaint, he took to the pages of USA Today for some very straight talk. “Why do we persist in blaming the black family crisis on ‘unwed mothers’?” he asked. What about “unwed fathers”? An inspired phrase. Even to hear acknowledgment of “the black family crisis” is refreshing. Cosby said, “Real men do not walk away from the mothers of their babies.”
