Is there a problem with black and white dating
Men of different races stated on their profiles, or made it clear in some way, that they weren’t interested in dating black women.
No other women of any other ethno-racial background, in my study, reported seeing that kind of thing in men’s profiles.
In my study, black women talked about how black men have told them outright they don’t date black women because they are emasculating, they are intimidating, that they aren’t easy to be with.
They get this information from men that they actually date, so it’s not just from potential romantic partners, it’s actual romantic partners as well. On the one hand, black women, like other women, can act on their partner preferences, and they have, ostensibly, a large pool of potential mates to choose from.
White supremacy only gains its strength in opposition to defining itself as opposite of blackness and that goes back to when the first slaves were brought forcefully to America. When they were crying out, when they were yelling for their kids not to be put on slave ships, when they were crying out for them not to be sold into slavery, when they were crying out not to be lynched, when they were angry with masters, these are things that have been already in place from the beginning of time in order for whites to place themselves as superior to blacks, so it’s not that it’s suddenly popped up, it just gets re-transformed.
The shortage of marriageable black men has been shown to be due, primarily, to structural issues, which are ties to racial inequality. They’re too strong, and these are traits that make them undesirable as romantic partners. OKCupid has shown that that’s in fact not the case. Sociologist Sarah Adeyinka-Skold poses for a portrait by the University of Pennsylvania campus on Thursday, Feb. Adeyinka-Skold will speak about the myths and misconceptions about black women marrying at the Free Library on Feb.
