Why say this? Why not also ask why Chinese ladies rarely date black men?

ha! :)



Eman Okonkwo's foot-tapping at the altar is not a sign of nerves. The groom's palms aren't sweaty, there are no pre-wedding jitters and certainly no second thoughts. Today he is realising a dream imagined by countless African merchants in Guangzhou: he is marrying a Chinese bride.

Seven days earlier, Jennifer Tsang's family was oblivious to their daughter's romance. Like many local women dating African men, the curvaceous trader from Foshan, who is in her late 20s - that dreaded "leftover woman" age - had feared her parents would be racially prejudiced.

Today, though - having tentatively given their blessing - they snuck into the underground Royal Victory Church, in Guangzhou, looking over their shoulders for police as they entered the downtown tower block. Non-state-sanctioned religious events like this are illegal on the mainland.

Chinese women rarely date white or black. There are exceptions..........they are not the rule

Go to the west indies, they are all Blacknese

Check out the Chin(s) that worked with Bob Marley and are a high society family in JA. I doubt they see themselves as Chinese but anyways....Lots of Chinese men are actually with black women. Of course only the ones with cojones would step to  a black girl and man up.

the ratio of chinese and/white black women are probably the same

even in the uk you rarely see a black woman white man dating...
I do think a lot of white guys fee ...

I disagree..........a lot more black girl / white guy combo than white guys/Chinese girls combo. Also, you also need to look at the success of the union if it ends in marriage.  

The other thing is visa. You must realise these fly by night union is mostly motivated by visa.......Chinese union that is. I'd know especially since the abolition of teh home office primary purpose rule

You don't see many white men with Chinese woman in the uk, but how many Chinese woman will return to their home country? I would say a large majority, and how many white british men will want to go with them? probably next to zero...
Black woman in the uk have made it their home, which suits any white guy looking to date them, but I cant recall ever seeing a black woman with a white guy back in the uk up north or down south
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

interesting point however I will leave the immigration situation aside due to Windrush and all that.

I have only ever been to Manchester so patently unqualified about North however I grew up in London and can tell you without fear that lots of black girls/white boys combo.

Don't forget that 10 years ago, seeing a Chinese girl in London is actually ver rare and 20years ago, well, aside China town, hard to sight. Point I'm making is that visa exigencies are behind some of this skewed mix. The few Chinese girls that I know in London are here under student visas and majority will subject to marriage than go back.

Re white guys looking to date, 2 things that I'm aware of.

1) not all black women are looking to date white men and vice versa. Definitely not as keen as Chinese women.

2) Those white guys that love to date black women have no shortage of them. I know same goes for Liverpool and Manchester.

The stereotype of black women as terrifying is true insofar as they are nobody's door mat. I stopped counting the number of times I have witnessed Chinese girls been treated like dirt so much so that I stopped stepping it as perhaps deservedly so.

Oh apologies if I said I did not see Chinese women and white men. In fact that is the only thing you see now in London however unlike your good self, some of these guys and girls are not what anyone is rushing to date.
Jon Snow the newscaster is married to a blacwoman and my fave DJ, David Rodigan is married to a Jamaican....to name a few...in London, its nothing

    I noticed that most interracial relationship between a black person and a white person are between a black boy and a white girl?
    I'm not sure why
    and I'm quite curious as to why.
    Maybe it's just my area - London is it different in any other areas?

    Please try to refrain from racist statements like 'Black girls are ugly' or 'they're so loud'

The Rise of Intermarriage (in the USA)

Rates, Characteristics Vary by Race and Gender

By Wendy Wang

Executive Summary

This report analyzes the demographic and economic characteristics of newlyweds who marry spouses of a different race or ethnicity, and compares the traits of those who “marry out” with those who “marry in.” The newlywed pairs are grouped by the race and ethnicity of the husband and wife, and are compared in terms of earnings, education, age of spouse, region of residence and other characteristics. This report is primarily based on the Pew Research Center’s analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) in 2008-2010 and on findings from three of the Center’s own nationwide telephone surveys that explore public attitudes toward intermarriage. For more information about data sources and methodology, see Appendix 1.

Key findings:
The increasing popularity of intermarriage. About 15% of all new marriages in the United States in 2010 were between spouses of a different race or ethnicity from one another, more than double the share in 1980 (6.7%). Among all newlyweds in 2010, 9% of whites, 17% of blacks, 26% of Hispanics and 28% of Asians married out. Looking at all married couples in 2010, regardless of when they married, the share of intermarriages reached an all-time high of 8.4%. In 1980, that share was just 3.2%.

Gender patterns in intermarriage vary widely. About 24% of all black male newlyweds in 2010 married outside their race, compared with just 9% of black female newlyweds. Among Asians, the gender pattern runs the other way. About 36% of Asian female newlyweds married outside their race in 2010, compared with just 17% of Asian male newlyweds. Intermarriage rates among white and Hispanic newlyweds do not vary by gender.

At first glance, recent newlyweds who “married out” and those who “married in” have similar characteristics. In 2008-2010, the median combined annual earnings of both groups are similar—$56,711 for newlyweds who married out versus $55,000 for those who married in. In about one-in-five marriages of each group, both the husband and wife are college graduates. Spouses in the two groups also marry at similar ages (with a two- to three-year age gap between husband and wife), and an equal share are marrying for the first time.

However, these overall similarities mask sharp differences that emerge when the analysis looks in more detail at pairings by race and ethnicity. Some of these differences appear to reflect the overall characteristics of different groups in society at large, and some may be a result of a selection process. For example, white/Asian newlyweds of 2008 through 2010 have significantly higher median combined annual earnings ($70,952) than do any other pairing, including both white/white ($60,000) and Asian/Asian ($62,000). When it comes to educational characteristics, more than half of white newlyweds who marry Asians have a college degree, compared with roughly a third of white newlyweds who married whites. Among Hispanics and blacks, newlyweds who married whites tend to have higher educational attainment than do those who married within their own racial or ethnic group.

Intermarriage and earnings. Couples formed between an Asian husband and a white wife topped the median earning list among all newlyweds in 2008-2010 ($71,800). During this period, white male newlyweds who married Asian, Hispanic or black spouses had higher combined earnings than did white male newlyweds who married a white spouse. As for white female newlyweds, those who married a Hispanic or black husband had somewhat lower combined earnings than those who “married in,” while those who married an Asian husband had significantly higher combined earnings.

Regional differences. Intermarriage in the United States tilts West. About one-in-five (22%) of all newlyweds in Western states married someone of a different race or ethnicity between 2008 and 2010, compared with 14% in the South, 13% in the Northeast and 11% in the Midwest. At the state level, more than four-in-ten (42%) newlyweds in Hawaii between 2008 and 2010 were intermarried; the other states with an intermarriage rate of 20% or more are all west of the Mississippi River. (For rates of intermarriage as well as intra-marriage in all 50 states, see Appendix 2.)

Is more intermarriage good for society? More than four-in-ten Americans (43%) say that more people of different races marrying each other has been a change for the better in our society, while 11% say it has been a change for the worse and 44% say it has made no difference. Minorities, younger adults, the college-educated, those who describe themselves as liberal and those who live in the Northeast or the West are more disposed than others to see intermarriage in a positive light.

Public’s acceptance of intermarriage. More than one-third of Americans (35%) say that a member of their immediate family or a close relative is currently married to someone of a different race. Also, nearly two-thirds of Americans (63%) say it “would be fine” with them if a member of their own family were to marry someone outside their own racial or ethnic group. In 1986, the public was divided about this. Nearly three-in-ten Americans (28%) said people of different races marrying each other was not acceptable for anyone, and an additional 37% said this may be acceptable for others, but not for themselves. Only one-third of the public (33%) viewed intermarriage as acceptable for everyone.

Divorce. Several studies using government data have found that overall divorce rates are higher for couples who married out than for those who married in – but here, too, the patterns vary by the racial and gender characteristics of the couples. These findings are based on scholarly analysis of government data on marriage and divorce collected over the past two decades.
