A writer by the name of Andrea Michelle published an article in UPTOWN magazine titled, “Why White Women Are Winning.” As you can imagine, black women (if not already) will soon be up in arms defending their “choice” to remain single.
Whether or not (most likely not) they will admit to it, black women generally struggle with admitting to falling short in areas that have proven to be strengths in other groups of women. White women, in particular, marry in far greater percentages than black women; and, more and more of them are marrying black men. Thus, black women who want to get married need to understand that they have to step up their game. Statistics and unbiased observation show that, when it comes to the wives club white women make up the Winners’ Circle. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention):
While 17% of Hispanic and 12% of non-Hispanic white women have not married by age 35, 42% of non-Hispanic black women have not married by this age.
