Older white women dating younger black men
If these statistics tell us anything, it is that black men are dating black women even if they are not dating them as much as other races.This brings us to the real question: Why is it black men will date outside of their race but marry within their own?The reason young, black men are not dating young, black women is as simple as this—these black boys are too immature for these black women. I grew up in one of the seventeen cities in the United States named Rochester (Wikipedia, 2015).For many years, it has been said black men are not interested in dating black women for a variety of reasons.
The whole “too ghetto” statement is just as ridiculous.As marriage rates decrease, black men still marry and date outside of their race/ethnic group, but not as much as people believe. Census Bureau showed that 86 percent of black married men were married to black women, 7 percent have a white spouse, 4 percent have a Hispanic spouse (regardless of race) and 3 percent are married to another race/ethnic group.Statistics show marriage rates among black men is higher among black men and women than with other groups. A common misconception states that black men are not marrying black women, but that is statistically untrue.They would ask me about the “colored kids” at my job as a camp counselor and spoke the word “bi-racial” in hushed tones, as if it were something to be ashamed of.After deciding to enroll at Towson University, friends of mine joked about me going to “the hood” and the violence in the Baltimore area, but I was never worried.
It is widely believed that black women have more attitude than women of other races, but that is a cultural opinion based on the fact that black women are known to be very opinionated on matters that concern them.
