Permanent Black Man
New Research Shatters Myths and Provides
New Hope for Black Love and Marriage
Black women are less likely to marry outside of their race. Among black women with college degrees, 5.3% have a white husband and 93% haveblack husbands. Only 2% of married black women who are high school dropouts have a white husband and 96.7% have a black husband. Most white men, 97 percent, have a white wife and only .3 percent has black wives. However, due to the difference in the size of the population, we really cannot compare the percent for white men, to the percent for black men. If 8 percent of the 43.1 million married white men were to marry black women, 96 percent of the 3.6 million married black women would be married to white men. Similarly, only .7 percent of married white women are married to black men. At 20 percent, Asian women are more likely than any other race-gender to marry someone of a different race.
