White Women are 12.4 Times More Likely to be Murdered by a Black Husband Than by a White Husband

Of spouse homicides occurring from 1979 to 1981, 96.3 per cent occurred in intraracial marriages. Spouse homicides in marriages where the husband was Black and the wife was White constituted 1.4 per cent of the total, and marriages where the husband was White and the wife was Black accounted for 0.5 per cent. Spouse homicide incidence rates were 7.7 times higher in interracial marriages relative to intraracial marriages.

White women who marry a black husband increase their chances of being a victim of spousal homicide by 12.4 times.

In the report, “Fatal Violence among Spouses in the United States, 1976-85,” by James A. Mercy and Linda E. Saltzman, spousal homicide is examined along racial lines. Click Here for PDF.
