Black people are only about half as likely to have a bachelor’s degree.
This matters a lot in areas like atheism that are disproportionately limited to the most educated individuals.
I once heard about a professor who accused Alcoholics Anonymous of being racist, on the grounds that its membership was almost entirely white.
The (white) professor had surveyed AA groups in his (white) neighborhood and asked his (white) friends and (white) grad students to do the same.
Second, Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs says you’re not going to do weird things to self-actualize until you feel materially safe and secure.
Sixth, even when black people are involved in weird subcultures, they may do them separately from white people, leading white people to think their hobby is almost all white – and leading mostly white academics to miss them in their studies.
But it seems to eventually settle on a thesis that black people really are strongly underrepresented. Forget for a moment that as far as I can tell “play parties” are a BDSM term with no relationship to polyamory.
For the record, here is a small sample of other communities where black people are strongly underrepresented: Runners (3%). In my experience polyamory draws from the same sort of people as atheism, and atheism is very white even though not believing in God doesn’t cost a cent.
I would guess most of the underrepresentation of black people in all of these things are for the same couple of reasons.
First, some of these things require some level of affluence – I know I just said that didn’t explain polyamory, but I think it explains some others.

Many of these things require leaving the general community to participate in a weird insular subculture, and that requires a sort of lack of preexisting community bonds that I think only comes with the upper middle class.
