Is wrong to think that a successful black man could marry a black woman in 2010?
No. I don't think that's wrong... I'm sure it happens all the time.
I cant see any reason why , If 2 people are in love go for it and be happy !!
No it is not wrong, and it happens.
Being a Black Male (BM) who's prospect for success is very high, I get this type of conversation a lot, even from my own mother.
Good question, and I think that I will make a hub about why it doesn't seem to happen very often.
Just a few highlights:
based on what I learned from my Black Studies and Black Male in Urban society class, these successful BM generally fall into a category they call "the talented ten percent." Unfortunately for these BM, such a category puts them into a position of being considered an "unembraceable BM" to the black society. It's been cited numerous times, they are charged with "acting white" or "wanting to be white." In their developing stages before success, they are rejected. They are left with feelings of rejection and frustration, but guess who is there to embrace them?
The afore mentioned came from two different social science classes and the social science research that were presented in those classes, and are not my own opinion. Of course, this is not every single "talented" BM's experience, but many do experience it including myself and my friends who are like me.
It is not wrong to think that a successful black man could marry a black woman in 2010. Like you, I don't see it happening much either. But like a my spiritual mother would say, 'just because we don't see it or believe it, does not mean that it is not true.' It tends to be something we 'see' in the pages of a magazine that have images of real couples who have recently wed (these men, and some women appear to be successful) or it may be in certain newspapers. However, when I look around my immediate surroundings, I don't see much of it.

Is a white woman refusing to date blacks the same as a black woman refusing to date whites?It seems there is 'back privilege' in the dating scene and racism against whites. As a non-white, non-American person observing this, it seems really strange that this racism is so widely accepted.
