A new PEW study found that Black men are intermarrying at the highest rate of almost any racial group. The only group that chose interracial marriages at a higher rate, are Asian women.
The study looked at interracial relationships, and suggested that if the current trend continued, we will cross a threshold where more than 50% of Black men choose non-Black wives. At that point, it could be said, that Black men will “prefer” White women to Black women.
The study suggested that the “preference” threshold point could happen as early as 2026.
Here’s what is being said:
Among newlyweds, for example, 24 percent of African American men are marrying someone of a different race or ethnicity, compared with 12 percent of black women. While the overall intermarriage rates have increased for blacks of each gender, the gap between genders is “long-standing,” the Pew researchers said.
