I just left a black woman's website for career women and stumbled across some shocking numbers with implications worth thinking about. The number count on our people is at 34 million in America. This site reports that 60% of that number is black women. Now my math isn't the greatest in the world...but I think that comes out to over 20 million black women out of a total population of 34 million. There's an estimated 1 million black men incarcerated. Therefore out of the 14 million black men left, the number just went down to 13 million. A survey of interracial marriages reveal that 80,000 black women are married to white men. Although I couldn't find the actual numbers for black men married to white women, the various studies reveal that the percentage rate for black men marrying white women is 2.82 percent higher than that of black women marrying white men. Again, because I'm no mathematical genius, my calculations of that means that out of the 13 million black men left, 3 million 666 thousand married white women. That just brought the numbers down to 10 million black men left. Lets give a moderate number of 500,000 black men who are gay or bi sexual since the various reports differ. We have 9 and a half million black men left. The Princton New Jersey Dogwood corp, doing a study of the drug clinics across America came up with the numbers of 500,000 black people using needles in terms of drugs. Let us divide that number respectively so that we assume that 250,000 of that number is black men. Of the 870,000 cases of known aids, 337,000 cases were black people. Lets also divide that number evenly. We get about 168,000 of those being black men although it could be higher or a little lower. This brings the black male population down to slightly over 8 million. It could be worse...I was simply too depressed to continue this investigation. There's several things to be gleaned from this.
