Each of us (chooses) our own friends, lovers, and spouse.
It's not about who one attracts as much as it is who (they) are attracted to.
If these statistics are indeed true then it says more about the culture of where these women and abusers live than anything else.
I don't believe just because a woman is white or Latino that the (color of her skin) alone will dictate her odds of being abused.
Either she has few options to choose from when it comes to relationships or marriage or she simply has not learned how to detect the signs her mate might have violent tendencies.
In most instances verbal abuse precedes physical abuse.
Ignoring "red flags" like yelling, cursing, name calling, punching holes in walls, throwing things across the room, slamming doors, destroying one's personal property, forbidding one to associate with friends or family, threats, obsessive & jealous behavior are the usual precursors to being hit. Recognizing signs and walking away early is best.
Believing someone is going to "change" is a big mistake!
