New York Time’s columnist and researcher at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at Ohio State University, ANGELA STANLEY, wrote a new post called ‘Black, Female and Single‘ on the new york times website that revisits the infamous statistic that 70% of black women don’t marry. She actually found that, “according to 2009 data from the Census Bureau, 70.5 percent of black women in the United States had never been married – but those were women between the ages of 25 and 29. Black women marry later, but they do marry. By age 55 and above, those numbers showed, only 13 percent of black women had never been married. In fact, people who have never married in their lifetimes are in the clear minority, regardless of race.”

Do you think the focus on these negative statistics about black women and marriage is intentionally pushed by the mainstream media?
