* Only 16% of college-educated white women will marry a man with only a high school diploma.

* Asian man / white women hold the highest median household income of all pairings. Why? Because white women *will* marry Asian men if they are doctors, attorneys, engineers, etc.
And we know white women will marry black professional athletes, celebrities, music entertainers

So the idea that white women will settle for poorer white men is false

Only if she is also poor w limited options.

Overall, white women like & prioritize comfort.

In fact, college-educated white women in cities like NYC will choose to remain single over mating down, socioeconomically.

There's a whole book on it.

They treat the poorer, less-educated men of their race as if they're invisible.

It's fascinating. ☕
For cosmopolitan, educated white women, there is more social status to be found in becoming a "single mom by choice" with vetted sperm than marrying or procreating with blue-collar white men.

It has everything to with the trend of #AssortativeMating & mixed-collar divorce rates.
Their logic goes something like--

"I'd rather reproduce the child I would've had with 'Mr. Right' if I'd found him in time. Also, people divorce. So maybe I'll scoop up a partner after becoming a mom. Maybe a wealthy divorcée".

But absolutely no "marrying down".

Much stigma!
Contrary to what the uninformed say, it's not eugenics, that's state-sanctioned & administered mate selection.

This is merely a higher stakes game of "sexual selection" that human beings have been practicing since our arrival for survival.

The key difference is *voluntary*.
So that's basically what white and nonblack women are doing. ☕

Kind of like what black women do with height. The majority of us still seek out the tallest men.

That's sexual selection.

And you're unapologetic about it too🤣

Selecting men by other traits is considered taboo..
The same people who will jump in my mentions all hot about #AssortativeMating & #MarrySameTwitter (trends to reduce divorce) will go on about how a 5'6" guy better not ever look their way.

But they legit believe (nongenetic factors!) education & income vetting is immoral.🙃
A man can't do *anything* about his height (not a damn thing!) but he can finish school and secure employment.

And yet. 🙃
Me: "Love is a choice".

Them: "nO IT'S nOT. yOu cAnT CoNtrol wHo YOu lOVe!"

Also Them: "ew, that leprechaun actually tried to talk to me!"

🤣
I'm done with y'all.
