Interracial relationships have always gone on in the black community, primarily taking place between black men and women of other races. However, over the past 15 years or so, black women are catching up and marrying non-black men at greater numbers each year.
Though black women with white and other men is a growing trend, most black women still prefer to marry a black man. Even though black men are falling further behind socially, economically, educationally en masse, and they tend to insist on a double sexual standard, female submission, and male dominance as a matter of course - most still see themselves as a prize that every woman wants.
So the question must be asked - are white and Asian and Latina women really chasing black men for marriage or just for the entertainment value? Are black men truly "in demand" with women of other races, or are such thoughts the fantasies of delusional narcissists?
And if a black woman wants marriage and a family of her own, is waiting on a black man the most sensible option or should she broaden her horizons to include men of all ethnicities or should she "stick to her own kind?"
What are the pros and cons of interracial marriage for black women? Are black women better matched with white men?
