On the other hand, white men responded to black women 8.5% of the time—less often than for white, Latino, or Asian women.
In general, men responded to women about three times as often as women responded to men. All men except Asians preferred Asian women, while all except black women preferred white men.
If I were to state instead that, “I have have no interesting in dating a black woman”, I would likely still receive some condemnation, but probably less than for the first statement.More than 80 percent of whites — even the 48 percent of males and 28 percent of females who said they were indifferent to race — sent messages to whites and just three percent contacted blacks.” Read the article here, and please share your comments below. I can’t tell you how many white men’s profiles I’ve seen listing a preference for Asian women! I prefer lighter skin, the same way so many men prefer lighter hair (blondes). I have NO PROBLEM being friends and colleagues with black men (or women); I simply prefer certain physical characteristics just like most people do. As a white woman I’ve gotten a lot of attention from black men. And both black men and black women got the lowest response rates for their respective genders.Perhaps most surprising is that among men, all racial groups preferred another race over their own.
