Where-Are-All-The-Good-Single-Black-Men

This infographic sets out to show the statistics on dating for black women who want to date black men.  They start out by looking at simple criteria, then drill down to more specific criteria that is based on what women are looking for when they look for a man.  Let’s take a look.

I Want a Black Man

This section tells us that for every 100 black women, there are 87 black men.  That’s about 450 million women to 139 million men.  The informational bit is in the middle, and on each side there are little tally people who represent the men and women.  This one starts out with 100 women on one side, and 87 men on the other.  So, to qualify for this category, a guy’s just got to be black, so there are 87 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Straight Black Man

This section narrows it down further, and adds the qualifier that the available black women want a man who likes women, and not other men.  So, of the 87 qualifying black men from the last category, we take off 2, because 4% of the guys are homosexual, but only 2% of the women are, which leaves 2% we have to take off the total of qualifying black men, leaving us with 85 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Black Man Who Likes Black Women

The data tells us that 70% of interracial relationships are between black men and white women, and that 8.5% of all eligible black men are married to white women, dropping our qualifying black man group down to 78.

I Want a Man Who Has Not Been In Jail

The data says that about 30% of black men go to jail at some point in their lives.  That brings us to 54 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Man Who Has a High School Diploma

82.1% of black males over the age of 18 have at least their high school diploma or GED.  Which means that the number drops down to 44 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Man Who Has A Job

This economy is rough, and 35% of black men are unemployed.  That brings the number down to 29 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Man Who Makes Enough Money

For this, they looked at men who make at least 30K per year.  That’s about 22% of black men, bringing the number down to 7 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Man Who Looks Good and Is in Shape

The numbers tell us that 24% of black men are obese.  That brings us to 5 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

I Want a Man Without Kids

The final category – no Baby Mamas.  The numbers say 1/3 of single black men have children with another woman.  That brings us to a whopping 3 qualifying black men for every 100 available black women.

The summary at the bottom states that if you are looking for a man who is black, heterosexual, attracted to black women, educated, makes enough money, has never been to jail, is not fat, and who does not have kids with any other women, you are going to be looking hard.  It’s hard to find a good man.

    Chris is right about it being mathematically misguided. They seem to be multiplying in each percent one at a time, which would be correct if all of them were independent variables. Clearly there are dependent variables involved: a man with a high school diploma is more likely to have a job, and therefore more likely to make more than $30k a year.
