I was reading a blog that discussed the writers observations on the difference between Interracial couples. She noted that:

1. BM/WW couples usually dated and had illegitmate children

2. WM/BW couples usually were happily married

What I found interesting was from one of the people who left a comment. It was a long comment and can be read here but I’ll quote what I found interesting.

For a Black woman and White male to really get involved, they must first meet, then overcome societal expectations. This is more easily done by intelligent, liberal-minded people; since intelligence and liberalism correlates with college education, both individuals in a BW-WM pairing are more likely to be educated or meet at places associated with smarts and status (museums, etc..) Furthermore, since the White man is at the top of the social hierarchy in America, dating a Black woman would actually be a social step down. The only way to compensate for this is if you have the “trophy” wife–which is why in BF-WM pairings, the woman is more often-than-not highly educated, above average in looks, and everything else that you’d want in a woman. She must be the ideal woman to compensate.

*Emphasis mine

Well that would explain why my husband chose me – rofl!
