Except that they don't seem too interested in white men. Of those who recently married only 9% chose non black men.

If I'm reading this correctly, the number of black women who "marry out" is actually higher than the number of white women who do the same, despite the perception that black women do not marry out.

You also have to look, however, at the sizes of the populations they're marrying into. The pool of white people is five times the size of the pool of black people.

For black people--either male or female--who live and/or work outside the concentrated black urban areas, the vast majority of their contacts are white people. Yet, only fifty-eight out of 1000 black women married into a white population of (proportionately) 5,000. Black women are not substantially marrying into the immensely larger pool of white men.

For white people, only a small minority (smaller than the overall 1/5) are black people. Forty-four out of 1000 white women married into a black population of (proportionately) 200 (because there are five times more white people than black people). White woman are marrying significantly more into a much smaller pool of black men.

When I say "marrying into" in this context, I'm not inferring whether it's the male or female of either race that is the initator of the relationship.

Time and time again, we see way too many Black celebrities and regular folks relaxing their hair, making it blonde, getting nose surgery and even waist/hip reductions. It just seems so obvious that many are changing their appearances to look "White".

Racial Psychology: Why Do Black People Want to be White? | The New Observer

Is it social pressure? The media? Is it because 90% of commercials on television use White actors?

What is the main influence.. what is going on?

Treat me with respect on this subject, I am an Iraq veteran and I am also black.

So what are black people so afraid of? Do they feel that they need to be accepted in a "White World"?
If that is still the case, I hope that will go away one day. To me African-American culture (most of all music) and people (i.e. women ) have always been the only interesting "thing" about the US.

I agree and disagree.

The EFFECT of the white women marrying into the black community is felt larger than the EFFECT of black women marrying into a larger white community. That is true.


But that's true of any white person's affect on the minority community they "marry into" vs. the opposite direction.


And, it doesn't change the RAW numbers. White folks still remain the most likely to marry their own. Most likely because they tend to have access to more of their own to choose from. Indeed, studies show that the hugely disproportionate Asian M v. F outmarriage rate is going down as increased Asian immigration provides more Asian partners to choose from.

Presuming trends by raw numbers is most often misleading. But even in consideration of the raw numbers, black women marrying white men is influenced by the same factor you mention: If they do so, it's because in their own individual social circles, there are considerably more marriageable white men to choose from.

Agreed and decent Black dudes who take care of business DON'T stay single real long since they've got the whole "dinner table" of ladies select from in 2014.

What's up with whites that call black people "bro"? Whenever I see this, the black guy smiles and is thinking to himself " You phony white idiot, I'm laughing at you not with you". Then the white dude proceeds to attempt to speak more like said black person. People should just be themselves. When I deal with other races, I dont change my tone..and address them by either their first name, or sir/maam.

Strange, Pew Research found a completely different situation at hand. Black women are the least likely to marry out according to their research.
