I was listening to a short clip of Jesse Lee Peterson (I do on occasion, it's got some comedy gold in there some times) and the topic was about a
white woman marrying a black man and Jesse was saying that she hated her race and wanted to be a "black savior". IDK if I agree with him but it got
me thinking about why so many black women get very upset when they see mixed race couples, well black men with white women - IDK if they care too much
the other way around, b/c I see black girls w/ white guys and it seems like it's black guy's who are often upset about this.
I'm only examining black women't point of view, obviously as an outsider here. Let's take a roughly representative sample size for the population
of 14-15 black girls & same number of guys, then you have 65 white men and 65 white women (factor in ~17-20 latino women - later on). Now right off
the bat, if no one cared about race, then there's a higher chance a white girl would end up with some black guys but there are MANY other factors
that come into play.
Looking at criminal records there is an estimate that 30-35% of black men will have some sort of criminal conviction during their life, often in
their earlier years, IDK if this is felony convictions or also misdemeanors, but this would drop the eligibility of the black men from 15 down to
10-11. Now if you look at education rates, less than 1/2 graduate from high school and those who enter college 40% graduate (so 2-3.4 men), the rest
don't attend college or fail out, which leads to these stats:
Stats of 15 average Black men
Less than 8 don't graduate HS
~4-5 will have a criminal records
only about 40% who attend college graduate
2-3 dont' attend college but have no record & graduated HS
~3-4 graduate college
So if a black woman wants a college graduate (black man), there are 3-4 to choose from out of 15 and when you factor in that there are 15 black women
probably trying to land those guys, that's stiff competition.
Now factor in the white girls, those who would date a black guy and those which a black guy would date. Out of the 65 let's put that number at 15 -
just so it is even with the black girls. All this doesn't even mention latino's which would have about 17-20 women to the black's 15 (b/c of
higher population) and let's say 3-7 of them would, could, or want to date a black man & likewise.
So the total white/latino competition is maybe 18-24 women who are all looking at the same 3-4 "prize" black men that that those 15 black women are
trying for. Now I'm sure there are going to be a fair number of those black women who those black men would not consider dating, maybe they have
criminal records, no education, many kids, etc, so let's drop that to about 1/2 - at 8 women in the competition.
So for these 3-4 "most wanted" black men there is a total of 26-32 of all races of which the black women represent ~8 - or 25-30%. That means for
every black girl, there are 3 other women in direct competition for "their man".
I'm not even bringing racism, racist ideas, etc into this, like keeping the races pure, though there are probably some women (and men) that may think
this way which drastically limits their already slim choices.
So when you hear white (or latino) women talking about getting death stares (or even attacked - sometimes by groups/gangs) when they are out on dates
with black men, or even while married, I wonder if the above reasons are a big part of the reasoning. If they had a larger selection from which to
choose, I doubt there would be as much inter-racial hatred due to this issue. I've seen many video's of fights between white & black women, often,
it seems, over the man.
Does this sound like a plausible explanation? I know I've heard this topic discussed on talk shows before, but no one ever seemed honest, they'd
always say there was no problem or if there was an appearant problem, it was b/c of "personal reasons" like attitude, behavior, etc - nothing
If these back of the napkin calculations are anywhere near close to being correct, I can totally understand why black women are very possessive of
their men and why they talk so much schiytt about white girls - it's a defense mechanism from many angles.
What do you all think, does this make sense at all?
