In 2008, 76 percent of black men with a college degree married by age 40.

Black men are viewed as sexy and, in a sense, a 'trophy' for another race, but black women are never deemed the most attractive. It seems these women have been conditioned to think they're not worthy if they're "just black." These statements below are the most common things I hear about why black men don't like black women: "Black women have too much attitude/ghetto."

By analyzing census data, Toldson and Marks found that 83 percent of married black men who earned at least 0,000 annually got hitched to black women.

Eighty-five percent of black male college graduates married black women.
Generally, 88 percent of married black men (no matter their income or educational background) have black wives.
