And there is also something else to consider. There are more Black women than Black men in general. Even if every Black man was paired up with a Black women, that would still leave 1/12 of Black women would not get married. And then add some of what many Black women are looking for. Having a high school degree is a prerequisite. Many Black women also want men with college degrees. There are more Black women with college degrees than Black men.

This video explains it better:

I wish that more Black American women would travel outside of the US so that they would get a broader perspective of how we are viewed internationally instead of seeing ourselves through the twisted prism of hatred that is purely American grown. I truly believe that the overall standards of many Black women would be raised instantaneously by traveling abroad.
I believe you and I'm sorry for including europe with the ignorance of racist white america who literally can't STOP thinking about everything we do, say, eat, fashion choices, hair, sexual positions, etc.

You would think they would have enough on THEIR plate with the suburban soccer mom's pill addictions and prostitution houses to pay the mortgage and private schools, while their unemployed husbands serve as their pimps. Let's not forget the trailerpark whites with their meth problems either.

Maybe if they concentrated more on THEIR problems than what WE are doing, then maybe they'll be able to make some break-thrus in THEIR communities.

lol! Having flat noses hasn't barred many Asian women from the marriage market. This is silly.

Some Black women prefer to date Black men, but Black men, one way or another, whether through societal prejudice or their own mistakes, end up in the criminal justice system. And a lot of Black women have their act together, have good jobs and a good education, whereas Black men tend to fall through the cracks in the system. There aren't enough achievers among Black males for all the Black females. Does anyone have any statistics as to how many Black women marry outside the Black community?

There are NO BLACK WOMEN on that show, but yet, they ALL seem to share the same exact "traits" you mentioned.

Shahs of Sunset is another one. Loud, boisterous, violent persian women, but yet THEIR men seen to fall all over them. Hmmmm...

None of those women on MOB WIVES are married either, despite the show's name.

According to a Pew research study, 9 percent of Black American women are married interracially, the lowest of all other races

The lowest divorce rate was also between White men and Black women. The divorce rate is lower than ALL other racial combinations including same race couples.

Yes, it is a strange one. A bit similar to the obsession some people have with judging other people's clothing choices, shoes, hairstyles, etc. Live and let live.

Those women on MOB WIVES are anybody's worst nightmare. Maybe there's a reason they didn't stay married. I don't think we should be comparing decent people of any race to those trashy women.

I don't know who "they" are. Are you suggesting a particular racial or ethnic group ?
