There is something else I want to point out. As long as the "Black male" dynamic is going to be discussed, I am going to put this into proper perspective. Where I live, whenever I see mixed race children being raised by a single mother, there is something else I notice, that no one is pointing out in any measure: the HOOD RAT dynamic. And when I say hood rat, I'm talking about the men who aren't going anywhere in life, who live off of their mothers, who are perennially unemployed or are basically losers. I notice women who end up raising children alone, they haven't sleep with the Black guy who is actually doing something with his life, or at the very least, the Black guy who is trying. They have slept with the lower end of the Black male population, the hood rat types. No one has addressed that part.

In my experiences, I've rarely seen the diligent, hardworking Black men do things like that. Of the Black men that I know of who are with non-Black women, only one has a child out of wedlock.

Another thing to consider is Los Angeles itself. More interracial dating goes on there than in many other cities.
Where are your stats?

Two different links, two conflicting statistics.

My whole point was that this wasn't specifically a Black male problem. It seemed like that was something you are ignoring.

No......I like to back up things with available data. I don't like posting percentages without stats.

Another factor could be that mixed race babies are "prettier" so maybe they're going for the "Exotic" look..
So your telling me babies that look like Domicans are prettier lol.

I know people are going to say things like how do you know the father is not part of their lives. For one thing whenever I see these women it is in public places like the beach, the park and the zoo where most fathers tend to go with their families but these women are rarely accompanied by black males. I can never remember seeing anything like this or at least to this extent before Obama was elected or before the Kardashians were in the public eye. So my question is. Is this some kind of trend where women think it is cool to have an illegitimate black mixed kid?
Stirring the pot; huh.

Because people guilt them into NOT having abortions.

And/or they are not physically and mentally strong enough to carry a baby to term and then give it up for adoption. (I know I wouldn't be.)

Good move. Blame it on Obama and the Kardashians.



So you think just because you noticed it now, it hadn't been going on before? Why are you not concerned with the White and Hispanic men abandoning their kids?
