Formal sociological or criminological studies of black/white, intimate partner homicides are few and far between.
There is a ideological reason for this. Academics know that a scientific study of the data will have a "politically incorrect" conclusion, and if they just follow the data, they run a high risk of "public repudiation, professional exile, and even career death"
Engaging in the direct study of race and crime, however, is not a straightforward matter.
Wright observes that researchers who produce findings which identify race as a determining factor in criminal behavior run the risk of "public repudiation, professional exile, and even career death".
He writes: "If social security is the holy grail of politics, race and crime is the holy grail of criminology. Touch it and you expose yourself to wrath and fury.
For this reason, many criminologists are loath to examine the connection between race and crime outside the modern sociological paradigm that holds that race is a mere social construct - that is, something defined by any given society, ... a 'social invention'."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Race_and_crime_in_the_United_States
But here are a few early studies that escaped from this culture of silence before it became all encompassing as it is now:
This courageous author, who got her PhD in sociology from Harvard, writes about white women ignoring the warning flags when dealing with black men due to the white woman's institutionalized white guilt. She also discusses the clear evidence that racist black rage against white women is responsible for the high rate of black on white interracial rapes.
Many white women put themselves in situations with black men that they would otherwise not enter if the men were white.They assume that their lack of trust in black men is racist when actually it may be quite appropriate.....
Some would allow themselves to talk with a black stranger and go off alone with him when they would not do that with a white man.
Race and Black Rage
Here is a study that shows that the risk ratio of homicide for white wives married to black men is 12.4 times the risk of white wives married to white men.

This study only tracked married interracial couples, not non spousal interracial couples,where based on other evidence, the homicide rate should be much higher. It concludes that white women married to black men are 12.4 times as likely to be murdered by their husbands as white women married to white men.
This study is based on 10 years of data centering on the year 1980. Although the data base has expanded greatly since then, evidently sociologists have been afraid to research the subject as I have found no updated studies on the internet.

Non lethal injuries in interracial intimate partner relationships
Often the murder of the wife is the culmination of a history of domestic violence with her husband. There are no specific stats on black/white, non lethal, domestic violence that I know of; but consider the following:
Almost 2 million injuries occur each year as a result of domestic violence, of which approximately one third of patients will seek care in an ED. Reported injuries include 43,000 patients with gunshot wounds, stab wounds, fractures, internal injuries, and loss of consciousness; 53,000 injured as a result of intimate partner rape or sexual assault; and 390,000 with soft tissue trauma, such as contusions and cuts.
In 2002, approximately 11% of homicide victims were killed by an intimate partner, accounting for 1,300 deaths.
These stats reveal that non lethal domestic violence and beatings are are at least 1500 times more common than spousal homicide in all marriages. (2 million divided by 1300)
So extrapolate this 1500 to 1 ratio of non lethal beatings and violence for ALL wives to white wives of black husbands whose spousal murder rate is 1,240 percent higher than white wives married to white husbands, and you get an idea of how the dangers to white wives of black men far exceeds only the danger of only being murdered by their husband!
And this 12.4 to 1 risk ratio covers only black/white married couples and doesnt cover black/white non spousal intimate partner relationships where the frequency of domestic violence is much higher than for married couples.
Yet naive, ignorant white women and their families often enter into these dangerous relationships with no awareness of the dangers involved, thanks to the institutionalized white guilt promoted by The Corrupt Liberal Media and The Corrupt Racist Academics whose dogma denies that these dangers exist
