Lower marriage rates among Back people has nothing to do with race, and everything to do with educational and income disparities between races, new research indicates.

“Black people also have higher population concentrations in urban centers, which have a lifestyle and cost of living that appear less conducive to marriage and family,” Ivory A. Toldson, associate professor at Howard University School writes in an blog post.

Deceptive narratives that prevail in discussions of black love and marriage have been extremely divisive. Myths have drawn misleading contrasts between educated black women and lesser-educated black women, pitted single black women against single white women, and obstructed healthy dialogue and compassion between black men and black women. If black people deal with the facts, instead of the news media’s “battle of the black sexes,” they might be able to find healthy love in one another.
