Black Women Should Look Outside Their Race For a Successful Man, Says Stanford Law Professor

Black women are surging ahead of black men both socially and economically, leading to a ‘relationship crisis’, says a professor of family law.

According to Ralph Richard Banks, as black men fall behind in education and income, they become less compatible with women of the same race, leading to black females becoming the ‘most unmarried’ group in American society.

In his book Is Marriage for White People? How the African American Marriage Decline Affects Everyone, Banks says the most obvious solution is for black women to marry outside their race.

Banks cites figures claiming around one in ten black men in their early thirties are in prison and that two black women graduate from college for every black man, elevating the women into the middle classes, while the men remain in the lower classes.

As a result, says Banks, many black women ‘marry down’, with the result that two out of every three black marriages failing, around twice the rate of white marriages, The Economist reported.

The Stanford professor claims due to this ‘man shortage’ black women are half as likely as white women to be married and three times as likely never to marry.
