During an MTV/MySpace.com forum on Thursday, John Edwards,predicated the doom of African-American males.
Edwards said that if he is not elected president, the population of Black-American males will most likely end up in jail or dead.
The democratic presidential candidate responded to a question about inner-city kids partaking in violence by saying:
â€œWe start with the president of the United States saying to America, â€˜we cannot build enough prisons to solve this problem.

It is also a job that Gardner and others believe is increasingly in trouble in the United States, even as the country gives its annual Fathers Day salute on June 17.
