So, a black woman could be hesitant to date another race for fear of being judged even more. For those who still consider stereotypes to be fact, black women are framed as hypersexual, exotic women. But it can be specific at times, depending on the person who penetrates that circle of connectedness.A black woman does not want disapproval from this circle just because she brought an “outsider” to join the ranks.
No matter whether you’re the black woman in this scenario or the one judging the hell out of her, chances are, you’ve stumbled across these societally skewed perceptions of black women while they’ve been dating outside their race: Because black women have historically claimed the matriarch role in black families, they are expected to be completely devoted to that.
Ok Cupid, a well-known online dating website, showed black men look outside of their own racial group when looking for a significant other.
From match scores in 2014, black men are 2 percent more likely to look for an Asian mate, 1 percent more likely to look for a black mate, 2 percent more likely to look for a Hispanic mate and -6 percent less likely to choose a white mate.
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.
