The Juggler (Conflagration) by Karin Turner In the Cambers case in particualr, the courts should have been more concerned about chastising employers like the club for restricting the emplyment opportunities of young umarried black mothers than with enforcing the club's message that single pregnancies and parenthood are not approriate modes of conduct for young black women.The courts ignored the disparity between the club's hopes for its members and the structural impediments to their achievement. Furthermore, the courts compounded the obstacles for the plantiff and others by failing to relate the club's position to those impediments, and by passing up an opportunity to condemn systematic racial, sexual, and economic injustice on behalf of young unmarried black mothers.
