The study also observed a clear gender divide in racial preference with regards to marriage: Women of all the races which were studied revealed a strong preference for men of their own race for marriage, with the caveat that East Asian women only discriminated against Black and Hispanic men, and not against White men.
Several studies have found that a factor which significantly affects an individual's choices with regards to marriage is socio-economic status ("SES")—the measure of a person's income, education, social class, profession, etc.
This creates a conflict with many white men, especially those from my generation (age 47) or older.
It comes from a mix of racial AND gender stereotyping.
However, media images and the lack of interracial socializing have led to a situation where the distinct minority of white men can say that they truly know a Black woman.
