I got this from a black site while researching for a Sociology class on the state of the black community. I notice a lot of black women I encounter are single and its not because they can't get a man (many of them are beautiful) its simply that they don't want a relationship to begin with. So a larger majority of black men do want a relationship. There's a in-balance here. I notice online when doing research there's a large amount of black men ranting about black women a lot. Mostly bashing them, and I notice they're the only race of men who do that. Aside from Asian guys who rant about Asian women dating white men. But black men in general seem to be fed up with black women's "attitude". Frankly from listening to some of their rants they sound upset or perhaps some black women hurt them. Some going as far as to blame the entire state of the world on black women. In other words, it sounds like black women don 't sound too interested in being in a relationship to begin with. So they advocate dating outside their race.
I noticed on TV it would make it seem that black women were mostly the ones searching for a man since less of them were married than black men and black women dated/married interracially less often. But no one cared to consider maybe this was because most black women had no interest in being in a long term relationship to begin with. In their cases, many black women grew up in single parent homes unlike other races of women. Growing up they saw being single while raising their children, with no male figure around as the norm. So inherently it may be that black women don't place any value or importance on finding or having a partner unlike other races of women do and most prefer being single.

With the disconnect in the black community with only 25% of the single black women and 43% of the single black men wanting a long term partner, its clear many black men will have to date out. Even if black women statistically outnumber them.
