Herschel Walker’s past came chasing after him

The politics of respectability and an embrace of social conservative issues are major pillars of Walker’s political career. He’s been critical of absentee fathers, even offering an “apology to the Black community” during a 2020 interview with conservative video bloggers Diamond and Silk.

“I want to apologize to the African American community because I know that fatherless homes is a major, major problem,” Walker said at the time.

The stereotype that Black men are absent fathers isn’t borne out by data; while they are the least likely to marry the mothers of their children compared with fathers of other races, they are the most likely to be actively involved in their children’s lives.
