Q: Is it true there are a lot of single mothers with black babies? (in China)

or is this another BS stereotype to scare local women away from  black men?

Umm, I'm not quite sure how the situation is in USA or Europe but in most countries in Africa there're hardly any single mothers. If a woman is a single mother it's probably because her husband is dead or something like that.
Most African men (my experience) don't hit and run.
Well, whatever. Reputation of black people is already f****d in every aspect and in every corner of the world. You just can't shake off the negativity and stereotypes. No matter what.

I can tell you there is a shockingly disproportionate number of fatherless black-american children. I once read something like HALF of all black kids in the USA have an absent father. (either separated or gone entirely).

 

In the UK, sorry if this is 'stereotyping' but the fact is - if you saw a caucasian woman with a brown baby (mixed) it was very very likely the father is long gone and missing or separated. 

 

I'm not sure about China. The only black-chinese mixed person I ever heard about had the father 'run off' on them. But I don't know of any other examples?

Well, I can't say for sure, but let's just think about this logically. Percentage-wise, there aren't many Chinese who have relationships with foreigners. However, we hear about them all the time because they are considered "unusual."  Out of those foreigners dating Chinese, a much smaller percentage are black because there are many negative stereotypes here. Out of those, an even smaller amount end in pregnancy, so I highly doubt there are "a lot" of them. Out of those mothers with Chinese/black children, maybe a high percentage are single mothers, but I wouldn't say that's a lot of people. Also, isn't abortion a prevalent form of birth control in China?

 

The only case I have ever heard of was where a Chinese woman cheated on her husband with a black guy and had a baby. Her husband divorced her and she raised the child alone, and she was on some singing show, and that's why it was on Chinasmack. Logically speaking, I don't think there are a lot, and I'm going to call BS on this one.

Geez I hardly see any black people in China. I see them every once in a while and I do have to take a look. I'm not sure I don't even think you are black because you always act like a local. Why are you so curious about this because I can tell you now there aren't a lot Crimochina - Piglatin anihcomirc

I have only met one Chinese girl who has told me she wouldn't get pregnant for a black guy...Says she is afraid her kid would suffer discrimination in China. However, many other Chinese - male & female, with a higher percentage of female -  who encourage me to marry a Chinese girl always talk of how beautiful they think a black guy & Chinese girl's child would be. Most of them have told me they have seen such mixed blood children and found them lovely.  So seems it's just personal taste. I know this doesnt answer Crimochina's question...Just commenting on what others have raised here.

Outside of Guangzhou, I have not seen many black foreigners.  But I somewhat disagree with the comments about timid Chinese girls toward black men (which means i somewhat agree also, I guess)  I just hit my two year mark in China, I've had 2 serious relationships.  Both girls wanted to marry me and have my baby.  Another girl who I broke  with is now with another black guy.  Besides that, a few others are actively seeking me (I am actively dodging). The girls are from Fujian,Guangdong, Henan and Beijing, all over China. My point being,  I don't see much difference from my home country, America.  Some girls like black men, and some don't.  I haven't personally seen any evidence that the rumors are true.  Then again, how can you tell if a mother is single if you don't know her personally?

Crimo, it's BS and

EYN05 Go F yourself, you came to China, why. Some of my nearest friends are Africans, not African Americans. They are good business men with more money than you, better manners, cleaner appearences and by far less biast. Did I mention highly educated, ability to speak multiple languages, and all around stand up individuals. Let me take a guess, you're on of a thousand non degree holding training school monkey's. Thanks for coming to China you racist asshole

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: Try me with that Q&advice: 'read the Contract!'Tits and others are
A:Try me with that Q&advice: 'read the Contract!'Tits and others are right: 'read the Contract and ask questions, before you sign it!'What else could I tell OP/you? Call your mom? Chinese will take an advantage of foreigner by pretending their English understanding is different than ours is. In their way 'they just negotiate'. There's nothing wrong with 'negotiating' in China. However, we (I do) understand that as 'cheating'.I seek Gov.'s help very often! Too often, since I am an English teacher without any Contract disrespect in 7 years of working in China. Why do I need Gov.'s help in Contract respect, if I perform without flops? There are only two parties on the Contract. By my assumption, if B honors Contract, A should do the same.Latest example at my full-time gig: 'I arrived to the office half an hour before scheduled classes, and rep. told me I am excused from work for 3 following days. 15' before my scheduled classes, I am told classes are canceled. Good, but I must receive full pay same as I would attend classes.Rep's reply: 'Chinese teachers at our School are paid per classes they perform, so you also won't get paid, because School canceled classes!' He didn't mention '... canceled classes on time', what I wouldn't necessary object, if I would get notice at least a week before.Now, management can do that to Chinese and other foreigners similar to OP and you, but not to me! I read and understand Contract, and get everything it belongs to me. School is now aware, that they are better off, if they schedule my classes elsewhere, because pay for not working by School's wish is warranted by Contract.I am required by present Contract to resign for any reason with 3-m RN. OK, but that also means I must receive School's notice about renewing the Contract in April or 3 months before the RP expiration, not 10 days before RP expiration as it's Schools custom in China. Try and find new RP sponsor in 10 days, me being Non-native English....Looking forward to that 'show' in April next year. School just demand 3-m RN, but they aren't aware of 'mirror effect' of that requirement.In my previous Contract, I sat in my room for 30 days, because School's excuse: 'managers are too busy to assemble your timetable'. OK, but I received full pay for the entire month of not working. At chat with SAFEA, I told Gov. that is School's Contract violation, and I can resign, because party A promised with Contract I will have 60 classes per month with what SAFEA agreed. I submitted Resignation notice in the middle of 2nd year's Contract and:- kept my RP intact;- received all necessary docs. from the School (with SAFEA's help) for RP transfer to the new employer;- got some 20k in late pay from the School.That all was just because I am aware of the Contract meaning, which I also respect 100%. How's my English? -- icnif77
