I am from Africa (lived in the States for seven years). I attended a wedding this Summer of a fellow African who was marrying a white man - this is the 8th wedding I have attended and all the grooms are white men. Why is that?

Probably for social status and to get out of Africa. Not to be offensive or funny but just a likely assumption.

Thanks for the response ~ Being at the wedding and observing the ceremony brought back all the weddings I have attended here in the States to memory (and the fact that they were all white grooms and African brides made me wonder)..Is intermarriage between Black American males and African women neither here nor there?

Wouldn't they achieve the same objective by being married to an African American male?

maybe its because interracial marriages aint much of a big deal in the african community......especially back in africa there more wm/bf couples than bm/ww....one might think maybe its because they aint many white women in africa??...but even if most black african men come here or the US where they is an abundance of white women, most of them still go back home to get wives from there (dont know why, to be honest)....and most black AFRICAN women dont mind if black men go with non-black women, so that cant be the issue..........well, I guess it all comes down to open-mindness really??

Some people with those degrees can act stupid too (black or white) because they think they are the most intelligent people. Do you know that because some of those people have such degree, they think that nobody can teach them? My statement is : everyone can be taught by anyone.

Look I wasn't born in Senegal but my mom's family were and I THINK they may come over and marry Caucasian American men for a) social status just like a lot of Asian women do or maybe b) because like Africans despite of their will to fix their own countries, they ARE highly intelligent people, therefore, they WANT likewise. I've heard that some African women don't like African AMERICAN men (or even the women) because of all of the time we've been here in the U.S., we STILL don't have even half of our community up to par. Some are disgusted by us because they come here and GRAB the education that's offered to them. They appreciate the things here that they could never get in their home countries due to warlords and economic collapse...not to mention worrying about their health. An African woman knows all TOO well how hard she has it in her home country so why would SOME of them lower their standards in a country with plenty of opportunity? That's what some think. Many Ethiopians here in CO I know think this way.

In the Nigerian Community, it`s more of the men than the women who date interracialy so i can`t speak for all of Africa, but i have noticed in the past 5yrs that African women are starting to marry more whitemen. My opinion on this topis is that when i go to Europe or Nigeria, we see African-Americans as entertainers and don`t see lawyers, Dr`s, entrepenuers, but see whites as running the show, so for African immigrants it`s easier for them to marry whites for social and economic status for not only them, but thier kids and it makes it easier for thier family to get visas when they see that she is married to a whiteman. By that, the rest of the world has an unfortunate stereotype of Black Americans in which in most casses is not deserving (based on the individual). My Afro-Brasillian mother and all of her sisters (all 4 of em) married Black men from America, the Dominican republic, Nigeria, and another Afro-Brasilan and and they themselves are half white, but these men were all black. On my Nigerian side, one of my dad`s sisters married an english man. When i talked to my aunt on why she married him out of curiosity, she spilled the beans to me on the socio-economic benefits of being married to him in England then coming to the US. They were in love though and did date for 5 yrs B4 they got married. But at the end of the day all immigrants will see is Entertaiment and not what Black Americans really bring to the table. ONE LOVE
