They also put the tired bit in about successful black men “getting blondes.” Though four times as many black men marry non-black women as black women do, note how small those numbers are. 400,000 sounds like a lot, but in the entire scheme of things that’s something like 4%. But there is some real stuff. Think about the economics of scarcity. What happens to the value of a given good if it is in high demand but low quantity? What about a good that is in high quantity but relatively low demand?
