Why are there so many single, black women in the United States?


I'm married (let me just put that out there). However, I can not help but feel some kind of way about the dilemma that is obviously plaguing many black women in this day and age. This is not a new idea, but since I'm a black woman, and I have my own ideas about why so many black women are single, I feel I am more than justified in posing this question myself to see what others are thinking.

    Sure it may be a generalization, but that doesn't rid us of the fact that in comparison to other cultures, black women are less likely than other races to be in a committed, marital relationship. Ask yourself, how many single black women do you know?

    lol, Alen, are you currently dating, because you could certainly aid in decreasing these numbers :-).

    Okay, I'm interested now. Can you please provide me with some additional insight into this 'desire dependency'? This is a new term for me, so I'll need some background. If you have a link, I'ld love to read more about it.
