i don’t even see how any black men can say that black women, as a whole, are not supportive of black men

black women are supportive of black men beyond the point of reason

i’ve never seen any ethnic group of women so supportive of their male counterparts

romantically…

You cannot be serious…are these matters of opinion or facts?

Well, I can’t back up the “Black women are supportive of Black men beyond the point of reason” thing with anything but my own opinion and anecdotal experience, but as for the rest (only citing what I stated in the post for the sake of time as this is a blog post and not a journal article)…

Black women prefer to date and marry Black men [1]:

Despite what many people may think, Black men have always been more likely to marry interracially than Black women, and this is particularly significant in recent decades. [2] There are also tons of studies on this looking at it from various angles. Black women claim to prefer Black men, Black women are less likely to have dated interracially (which may in part stem from racial preferences for non-Black women but evidence suggests otherwise [3]), etc.

  • 76.5% of Black women exclude white men from their dating pool
  • 92.24% exclude Asian men
  • 63.14% exclude Latino men
  • and 45% prefer to date Black men

compare that to Black men:

  • 71.32% exclude white women
  • 71% exclude Asian women
  • 39.15% exclude Latina women
  • 11.5% exclude their own race, while 23% prefer their own race [3]

Other women of color reply to white men more (indicative of a preference for white men beyond match %) [1]:

White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else—and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively. These three types of women only respond well to white men. More significantly, these groups’ reply rates to non-whites is terrible. Asian women write back non-white males at 21.9%, Hispanic women at 22.9%, and white women at 23.0%.

Black men do not prefer Black women despite the reverse being true [1]:

Hughes (2003b) provides more reasons that Black males cited for courting and marrying women outside of their race. Hughes (2003b) cited a writer as saying that some Black men seek physical qualities such as “… long hair, light eyes, pale or caramel skin tone-describe women of Asian, Hispanic or multiracial descent…” (p. 70; Jones & Shorter-Gooden 2003, pp. 117 and 178). Another writer is cited as saying that other reasons: “… include allegations that the Black woman is attitudinal, selfish, lazy and sexually uptight…” (Hughes, 2003b: p. 74). Hughes (2003b) adds that some Black women also appear to support Black men who date outside of their race, instead of condemning them. Also in other cases, Hughes (2003b) cited a writer as saying that Black women also influence Black men to marry outside of their race “… by unwittingly spreading nega- tive ideas about other Black women in front of their male children” (Hughes, 2003b: p. 74). [3]

And

An interesting observation of the tiny fraction of Black women who marry White men in the United States is that a significant number of those Black women actually marry foreign-born White European men and Jewish men. Also, a significant number of foreign-born Black women tend to marry White men in the United States. Black men, however, tend to marry native-born White American women, when compared with Black women. For example, according to research by Cready and Saenz (1997), 67% of Black husbands who marry outside their race married “an Anglo”, compared with 51% of Black wives (p. 343) [3]

Black women reply to Black men more than anyone else [4]:

Black women marry interracially less often than Black men:

23.6% of Black men are married to someone who is not Black, while only 9.3% of Black women are married to someone who is not Black [5].

This is even in spite of the fact that Black women are, on average, more educated than Black men. Women tend to marry men with the same or higher educational attainment (though this is shifting a bit) but Black women are quite often better educated than their husbands. 

Marriage is particularly unlikely among men who are poor, and Black men on average are both impoverished and without much wealth. It’s worth noting that Black men marry less often than men of other races at every income range.

If anything, Black women should marry interracially a lot more for these and other reasons [6], but…they don’t!

(it’s more accepted in the Black community for men to “marry out” than it is for women [7])

tl;dr everything I said is supported with facts and you look any of it up

This is officially the last time I’m going to address this kind of foolishness. My husband’s race does not negate my blackness or mean that I’m self hating. And believe it or not, my online presence doesn’t mean you know me or what goes on in my life or relationship. I am still black when I wake up and when I go to sleep. Nothing is going to change that, nor do I want that. My husband, (the amazing man that none of you Internet critics know) does not change that. If you feel some kinda way about me using my online presence to talk about black issues, I encourage you to pick up a camera and make your own videos. The Internet is here for everyone to use. I am not better than you or more qualified to speak about any issue just because I’m popular on the Internet. So instead of wasting time worrying about what I’m doing or not doing right, put that energy into doing positive something yourself. I know I make a difference and I’m proud of the work I do online and off. My husband being white does not change the positive impact I set out to and have made.

This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.


This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.

Body count really matters to people? Like what’s an acceptable body count to have..& how do you even determine whether someone’s body count is too high?

body count only matters if its higher than 1.5x your age…

y’all niggas rather do math than face the fact that women like sex too. Geesh.
