Do Fatherhood Initiative Ads Insult Black Men?

A national advertising offensive sponsored by a group known as the National Fatherhood Initiative (NFI) is drawing fire from those who think it insults black fathers -- especially those prevented by court order from playing a role in their children's lives.
