America american women and interracial dating
So it's no wonder we're thrilled for Black women who have found love—no matter the ethnicity of their partner.Though Black men are still twice as likely as Black women to date outside their race, it seems more and more of us are becoming open to dating beyond the color line.What can be even more disheartening than seeing your beautiful, professional, well-educated sisterfriend still unattached is seeing a successful Black man settle down with someone of another ethnic group.
As part of a longer survey, participants were also asked to rate on a scale of 1 to 100 how disgusted they felt about a black man in a romantic relationship with a white woman, or a white man in a relationship with a black woman.
In a survey of attitudes about relationships, the students reported little disapproval of interracial couples.
But photos of interracial couples triggered activity in a part of the brain that registers disgust.
In the second study, 19 participants had their brain activity monitored by electroencephalogram (EEG).
They were shown 200 real engagement and wedding photos: 50 black men with white women, 50 white men with black women and 50 each of same-race black and white couples.
