Black dating man marrying white woman
Whoever wrote this article (and everyone else) should go look at this How Your Race affects the messages you get. Basically, a tech at a dating sitewent through all of its data and looked to see whether race had any effect on how likely people were to reply and send messages.
This is taken from millions of messages filtering back but what they found out, at least among those people willing to go on a dating site, is as follows, and directly opposed to the anecdotes given in this article. Whether it’s due to talkativeness, loneliness, or a sense of plain decency, black women are by far the most likely to respond to a first contact attempt.
I wonder if it ever occurred to Hines-Starr that while there are certain culture attitudes that are passed down from generation to generation, the emphasis on education, family and financial security are not just things the Jewish community cares about.
I wonder if in regard to her own dating history if she ever considered the fact that it wasn’t that the men she dated were scumbags because they were all black but because they were just scumbags.
And personally, I, Veronica, believe that while black men are flawed like all men, you’ll never catch me out here denouncing all of them.
Nonetheless, it is important to recognize that such marriage patterns have evolved and changed over time. I think somewhere along the way, people lost sight of the fact that just because a stereotype is positive, it’s still a stereotype.When you reduce people down to a few characteristics, it robs them of their humanity, which is complex.These are certainly a lot of numbers to consider and as I mentioned above, each model presents a different proportion.
Nonetheless, what these stats tell us is that generally speaking, across all three models (calculated by using the admittedly unscientific method of averaging the proportions across all three models to emphasize the last two models), these are the Asian ethnic groups are most or least likely to have each kind of spouse: Men/Husbands -- Most / The numbers presented above only represent a 'cross sectional' look at racial/ethnic marriage patterns involving Asian Americans.
All of this seems to fly directly in the face of the author's implication that the low marriage rates among black women is due to black women not being willing to marry men of other ethnicities.
