    Link: Should Black Women Marry Outside the Race? - It`s the headline and question that the Wall Street Journal posed to their readers today. Really. In 2011. Ballsy, WSJ.

    Wall Street Journal is a FoxNews Rupert Murdoch owned racist rag. This isn`t surprising.

    Sticking to my stance on gay marriage...
    How is it anyone`s business who they marry?
    I have no right to an opinion on their marriages.

    I read the article(original one not the one this links to) and the premise is that black women are currently waiting around for that good black guy because other races won`t understand the fact they wrap their hair up before they goto sleep? but too many black guys are dumb so black women are competing for the few good black men out there?

    Are you drating serious?

    Breeding (often after marrying) outside of your own race tends to give your offspring greater genetic variation and thus can significantly reduce the risk of any genetic abnormalities (i.e. more attractive/healthier children).

    hooray for science

    ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!

    No Black Woman should EVER marry outside of the Human Race!

    Oh, they were talking specifically about the black race? Nevermind.....

    Seriously, let women (and men) make up their own mind.

    This IS NOT the question posed in the WSJ article.

    The question posed there is "Should MORE black women marry outside their race?" And, the article is simply describing that 70% of black women are unmarried - and this may be due to cultural pressures to stay within their `race`.

    So, the question posed is essentially "Should the cultural barriers hindering black women from marrying outside their `race` be broken down so that more of these women can feel comfortable marrying someone else?"

    Yes, that`s a 2011 question because it addresses continuing to break down contemporary stereotypes - in this case, those perpetuated by those of the ethnic group itself.

    @simbha - While I agree with everything you said, I think the point to it being here is in fact that the question was asked wrong to begin with. If it had in fact been worded the way you did, I doubt there would be as much f an issue. But because it wasn`t, it makes it seem almost as if it perpetuates racism, if only by bringing it up again

    They didn`t care 2000+ years ago before anyone made up the silly idea of race, either.

    And yes, I am saying that the entire idea of race is made up and silly. It`s not real. It`s not even a real description of skin colour, which is only varying degrees of suntan anyway. It`s dumb that anyone cares and it`s a recent kind of dumb. For example, we know that people emigrated from Africa to England from about 900 years ago onwards (and probably before, very likely almost 2000 years ago, during the Roman occupation). There aren`t specific records about it because nobody cared back then. The idea of race hadn`t been made up. A foreigner was a foreigner. Where they came from didn`t matter as long as it wasn`t France.

    Angilion-" before anyone made up the silly idea of race"

    I think you need to go back to science class.

    Angilion-"The idea of race hadn`t been made up."

    And add a couple of history classes along with it. Try and study the racial exclusiveness amoung the Greeks during the time of Alexander. Study the Graco-Roman civilization which included the Egyptians, Jews and Greeks. They also had trouble with the Ptolemies.

    FYI, this time was in excess of 2,300 years ago. (also, the migration into England started occuring in 5,000 BC...that`s a little more than 900 or 2,000 years ago).

    I didn`t feel like reading the article, but I don`t see why they can`t. My mom`s black, married a white guy, and my brother and I turned out alright. However, I never had any attraction to black guys, I dunno if that was a side affect of my upbringing. I married a white guy, is that considered marrying outside half of my race?

    Yes it is. Look at the epicanthic fold that is present in many Asian races. Or the typically higher bone density in black people compared to other ethnicities.

    There are differences amongst the races.

    It`s not even a real description of skin colour, which is only varying degrees of suntan anyway.
    Obviously not the case, otherwise all newborn babies would logically be white since they have never been exposed to the sun.

    First they need to ask: Are there any black women who are actually interested in white guys?
