It’s amazing how every single year a new study is written about Black women and their dating lives. You’d think people would have better things to research, because God knows this is getting old.
According to the Brookings Institute, Black women are more likely to marry down than their white counterparts, because they are surpassing men in the area of education and careers. What they failed to mention also is that advanced degrees don’t mean crap nowadays. Also, if a black woman is happy with marrying down, so be it.
I know plenty of white women who are more educated than their husbands. But I don’t see people nitpicking about their dating and marrying habits. But yet again, Black women are made to be the scapegoats.
I’ve dated down and dated up. As far as marriage, it’s not even on my radar. As someone who holds advanced degrees, the first question that doesn’t pop out of my mouth when I meet someone isn’t about their education or job. But then again, here in Washington, D.C. that’s the first question out of alot of people’s mouths.
If you’re interested in dissecting, yet another bs study about Black women, by all means – you can read it here.
Maybe one of these days someone will do a study on something a lot more important.
Clutchettes, what do you think about yet another study about the dating and marrying habits of Black women?
