We are going to break 4 Myths with statistics.

1. Black Women Don’t Marry - 

2.Educated Black Women Have It Harder

3. Rich Black Men Marry Out

4. Black Men Don’t Earn as Much as Black Women

Do Black people get married? That question has been asked in one form or another in a series of news reports about the Black marriage “crisis.” On the surface, such stories seem to be concerned about Black women in search of love, but these media reports have fueled stereotypes about Black people. By suggesting that too few Black men are available to wed, news stories on Black marriage have done little more than predict doom and gloom for Black women who hope to marry.

In reality, Black marriage isn’t reserved for the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama. Analysis of census data and other figures has debunked much of the misinformation the media has reported about the Black marriage rate.
