Stop Grouping People by saying "Them"

When you put people into a group, what you are trying to say gets lost. You may be right that 70% of black children born are to single mothers, but you lose other statistics such as:

"Today, 1 in 3 children – a total of 15 million – are being raised without a father.3 Of that group, nearly half live below the poverty line.

Around 45% of single mothers have never married, around 55% are either divorced, separated or widowed. Half have one child, 30% have two.

About two thirds are White, one third Black, one quarter Hispanic. One quarter have a college degree, one sixth have not completed high school." - Single Mothers Guide

This puts things in a better perspective and cannot be construed as prejudice. Ron Paul said it best when stating he could not be prejudice as he is a Libertarian and since Libertarians look at each person individually and do not put anyone into a group, there cannot be prejudice.
