    Study: Black women with B.A. abused more

    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., July 10 (UPI) -- Black women with a college degree were 145 times more likely to experience sexual or other abuse than women with no high school degree, a U.S. study finds.

    Kameri Christy-McMullin, assistant professor at the University of Arkansas School of Social Work, analyzed data from the 1999 National Crime Victimization Survey and found important differences in the factors related to abuse of white, black and Hispanic women.

    Christy-McMullin suggested that the study could support the main premise of backlash theory -- the notion that as women take on roles that have traditionally been held by men, men will resort to abuse as a means of keeping women in their traditional roles.

    White women employed in a service industry were more likely to be physically or sexually abused, while white women who lived in households with higher incomes or who had a college degree were less like to be physically abused, the study found.

    White women with some college education and divorced or separated women were more likely to be emotionally abused than professional women.

    Hmmmm. That's an interesting generalization, I mean, eruh.. "hypothesis."


    However, even though degreed, I have no personal experience with sexual or domestic abuse.

    And also proof positive that black men compensate for this lack of backbone and their other insecurities through sexual and domestic abuse.

    Women who accept domestic abuse come from all walks of life, socio-economic backgrounds.

    Personally, I've never experienced it nor was I raised in a household with it.

    I have known degreed and non-degreed women who accept abuse.

    It has nothing to do with education or geographic region and age is not necessarily a factor either.

    It has to do with low self-esteem.

    If a young or older woman goes through a "bad boy" or "thug love" phase, that attraction doesn't necessarily equate to abusive relationships.

    Low self-worth is what makes women accept and excuse abuse.
