STDs: White men and women who choose to date blacks have a much higher risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD), particularly HIV/AIDS.
According to a 2009 analysis by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), compared to whites, blacks are 9 times as likely to have syphilis, 9 times as likely to have chlamydia, and 21 times as likely to have gonorrhea (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
Black men who identify as heterosexual are 15 times as likely to be diagnosed with HIV/AIDS as heterosexual white men, but black men are also more likely to have undiagnosed HIV/AIDS. Black women are 20 times as likely to be diagnosed with HIV/AIDS as white women.
The American Journal of Men’s Health, citing data from the CDC, reports that “1 in 16 Black men in the United States will be infected with HIV in their lifetime” (jmh.sagepub.com).
Furthermore, “the long-standing HIV disparity in Black communities is actually increasing for Black men,” partly because “HIV also affects Blacks at younger ages. Blacks between 20 and 24 years old have the highest rates of HIV. By comparison, the highest rates of HIV occur among Whites and Latinos in the 25- to 49-year age group.”
According to the same article, although blacks make up 13% of the US population (census.gov), black men make up 49% of syphilis cases among men, 53% of chlamydia cases, and 73% of gonorrhea cases. These disparities are similar for black women. Furthermore, 40% of blacks have herpes — twice the white rate.
Abuse: White men and women who choose to date or marry blacks are much more likely to suffer abuse from their partners, particularly spousal homicide.
According to the American Journal of Public Health, a white woman married to a black man is over 12 times as likely to be murdered by her husband as a white woman married to a white man (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). Even more startling: a white man married to a black woman is 21 times as likely to be murdered by his wife as a white man married to a white woman. Still, the highest risk of death by spousal homicide is incurred by white women married to black men.
Furthermore, murder “is the leading cause of death in the United States among young African American women aged 15 to 45 years and the seventh leading cause of premature death among women overall” (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov). The elevated rate among black women is largely due to black women dating and marrying black men almost exclusively; for example, in 2009, 94% of married black women had black husbands (nytimes.com).
Child Abuse: According to statistics published in Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, “[c]ases of child abuse and neglect that involve black children are reported to and substantiated by public child welfare agencies at a rate approximately twice that of cases that involve white children” (aappublications.org).
Furthermore, their findings “suggest that racial bias in reporting and in the child welfare system are not large-scale drivers of racial disproportionality.” The disparity in reporting rates is due to a disparity in commission rates: black parents are about twice as likely to abuse their children as white parents.
Depression and Dissatisfaction: White men and women who choose to date or marry blacks are more likely to suffer depression and report dissatisfaction with their relationships.
According to Sociological Quarterly, “nonblack individuals with black partners have significantly more depressive symptoms and less relationship satisfaction than their counterparts with nonblack partners, regardless of respondent race and whether the nonblack partner is the same versus a different race from the respondent” (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov).
