With so much negative focus on identity politics on PatNet lately, I thought some of you (especially current and future father's) might appreciate this.

People are emotional over then and now pictures of a father walking his son to grade school and college.

A family's yearly tradition of walking their son to school has gone viral.

Tweeted by Charles Brockman III, he posted two pictures that touched social media's heart. One of his dad walking him to school on the first day of kindergarten and the other on his first day of college.

As someone who has invested heavily into a son, with both money, time, and yes, walking him to school in the mornings, I hope to be able to take a picture of me and my son at his first day of college. I admire this man.

Let's hope they don't go THAT low.

A better photo would have been Dad taking this son to the MEPS.

Not just on Patnet. Negative news seems to be the norm most days. See Drudge. We need more stories like this one.

Parents certainly play an important role in a child's life, for better or for worse.

Agreed, good post. We need more of those.

In fact parenting plays the biggest role.

"Institutionalized racism" has been a non-factor for many decades. Yet that's the first canary people try to point to even though it flew away long ago.

Fully agreed. Further vilifying male energy and dominance harms kids as these days many clearly grow up without enough fatherly influence.

Yup.

I don't think it's a coincidence that young black males commit half of the violent crime in the United States, and that blacks also have the highest single parent family rate of all minorities in the country.
