Black interracial dating statistics
Over 60 percent said interracial sex is definitely an exotic fantasy and over 20 percent said they have seen better success in interracial relationships their peers are in. Over 90 percent of men surveyed said they would definitely consider a relationship with someone outside their race, with over 50 percent saying it's because "they're hotter," and more than 87 percent said they would tell their families. If you want to be with someone outside of your culture, go for it.Most would assume her intellect and accomplishments would place her above the petty concerns of average folk.Yet, like many black women, she is not immune to the twitch of anger evinced at the site of a black man with a white woman.She wants to get to the bottom of a problem that renders her fellow black women without anyone to take home for the holidays.“The driving force is,” Miles writes, “…my awareness of all of the (straight) African American women — beautiful, smart, good women, some of them my own family and friends — who might not have a honey to bring home this Thanksgiving holiday because they cannot find a date, even as rising numbers of eligible African American men will be wooing white women.” Is the solution to date and marry interracially as Miles has done?Seriously, it's about to be 2014, but so many people — especially women — are still afraid to tell their parents that they're in an interracial relationship. According to a study by Interracial Match.com, nearly 83 percent of white women surveyed said they often fantasize about being in an interracial relationship, but only 12 percent admit it to their parents.
Others question whether Miles is correct in her judgement, because who one chooses for marriage should ultimately be a matter of the soul.
Writing for The Huffington Post, Miles penned a moving essay about this phenomenon: Hers is a tale of seeing first hand the black men in her family routinely select white women as mates.
This rattles her even though she is married to a Native American.
“Last holiday season gave me plenty of food for thought on this all too familiar and often uncomfortable racially-tinged question.
One of my male relatives brought home a date for Thanksgiving who could have been Barbie’s twin sister.” She assures readers: she has nothing against these women. Instead the background history that has rendered black women undesirable as partners needs to be brought to light. “Romantic attraction is subject to the larger social forces of racial prestige and stigma that swirl all around us, and in this environment, black women are losing out,” she states.
