"The fundamental problem ...is that of family structure. The Negro family in the urban ghettos is crumbling. A middle class group has managed to save itself, but for vast numbers of the unskilled and poorly educated, the fabric of conventional social relationships has all but disintegrated. So long as this situation persists, the cycle of poverty and disadvantage will continue to repeat itself." - Daniel Patrick Moynihan
