Do white women black men relationships denote acceptance in interracial dating?
It's all over the internet! Americans are more accepting tolerant approving of black
. This is because of the recently released Gallop poll this month claiming a
whooping 86% of us are cool with black-white marriages. And when we break it down to
the young generation (18-37 years), we are talking 97%!!! Yes! You go ahead and pat
yourself on the back for being so open minded. Plus, to add to this, white women black
couples are among the leading interracial couples in interracial marriages.
But do the polls and a considerable increase in white women black men
mean we have truly accepted interracial unions?
See, I have chosen to focus on the white women black men
couples because, they are
the interracial couple that keeps stirring lots of controversy in the media and the internet
and their numbers are relatively good. But much as their numbers keep rising, looking
critically at percentages, as of 2010, only 0.8 percent of married white women were
married to Black men while 8.1 percent of Black men are married to white women. There
is such a grave disparity in their percentages. So much as in totality the numbers are
good, individually, it seems Black men are more likely to be married to white women
than the reverse.
Looking at the percentages of the acceptance of interracial marriage from the poll results
and the actual numbers of interracial marriages in the U.S. (currently at 7.4%), there is
also a disparity in the numbers. So either by acceptance, people means they are fine with
others doing it and not them or since we can't choose who we fall in love with,
coincidentally, 92.6% of Americans just happened to fall in love with spouses of their
own race. Alternatively, maybe there are more people in interracial relationships in
general but fewer that translate to interracial marriages.
Much as there is controversy about white women black men
relationships and motives
behind this interracial union, we still see more and more such interracial relationships.
And even if going by percentages the numbers seem minute, the thing is, even amid
finger pointing, racism and a little resistance here and there, some of these couples have
managed to make it to the alter and that is some great stuff! And the numbers of
interracial relationships have risen considerably that's for sure. So, YES! This notable
rise in percentage definitely means a notable rise in acceptance! What do you think?
