According to a recent survey conducted by a popular review site, Interracial-Dating-Sites.com, African American men are preferred over their female counterparts by those looking to get in an Interracial Relationship. The survey included people from all walks of life and hailing from various races such as Asians, Native Americans, Latinos, Indian Americans and African Americans. While there was little difference in desirability of Men and Women of other races, the difference was pretty evident in the case of African Americans.
Leading Scholar and Psychologist, Chris Wright said,
“These differences generally crop up due to the kind of stereotypes in the society. People tend to assume that men and women of other racial backgrounds are very similar. However, there is a striking dissimilarity among African American men and African American women, which eventually lead to the disparity among figures obtained at the end of this survey.”
According to the statistics, only 19 percent of all men were comfortable with Dating an African American woman as opposed to 53% of all women who were fine with dating an African American man. The difference was less than 15% in people belonging to other races and ethnicities. The survey finds out that Indian Americans were the most desirable group among people that hailed from outside America.
The psychologist also listed a few reasons for the disparity…
- African American women are considered aggressive and people aren’t looking to date women who dominate.
- They generally belong to broken families and cannot create the kind of bonding that is expected of a woman. Men view women as a binding force in a family and therefore, African American women don’t fit in.
- People belonging to other races find it uncomfortable to approach black women and ask them for marriage due to the cultural divide that existed among them earlier. This is evident among white men.
- Black women aren’t considered feminine. Dating a ‘strong black woman’ isn’t something a lot of men are looking out for in the wild.
The growth in the number of interracial relationships has been attributed to the rise of Online Interracial Dating Sites. There has been a multi fold increase in interracial relationships compared to the early 1980’s. “It has now become convenient for people to connect with individuals of various races. They no longer have to hang around places that were dominated by people belonging to a particular community. Besides, these interracial dating sites are so affordable that everyone can join them with ease and without to burn a hole in their pockets,” Chris added.
