'Black women value religion over finding love'

STUDY: 'Black women value religion over love'

BLACK WOMEN find religion more important than being in a romantic relationship, a new survey has revealed.

The research by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation also found that black women place a greater importance on religion, careers and wealth than their white counterparts.

The study, dubbed the 'the most extensive exploration of the lives and views of African-American women in decades' by the US Newpaper, was conducted on 2,000 people with over 800 of them Black women.

Other highlights from the report outlined that two-thirds of the black women who took the survey consider being successful in their careers very important.

One of the participants, Towan Isom, 39, told the Washington Post: “I can go to school. I can be successful. I can make money. I can have a career. That is in my power to control."

She added: “Finding a husband - that would be great, but that’s not in my power to control.”
