This is merely an observation. I never really paid attention to this - well kind of...but it seems strange to me. Like, can anyone explain this?

There are a disproportionate number of single black women for a few reasons:
- fewer black women then white women are married.
- 4% of black men in the u.s. are in jail. If you focused on men in their 20's, it would be much higher.
- black male - white female relationships are much more common then black female - non black male relationships.
You add it all up, and there are lot of single black women. For what its worth, they are not the most frequently single group (that would be Asian males).
My guess is the black women online would fall in to two categories - black women who care about race and are looking for 'good black men' (and you see similar things with for example dating sites aimed at jewish singles) or black women who are open to dating non black men and find there's more opportunity online.
For the latter group, I hope they have great success. I'm firmly a believer that plenty of non-black men are interested in dating black women, and that the (low) rate this has happened is primarily due to cultural misunderstanding rather then lack of interest.3
