Caucasian only dating sites
When it comes to messages sent by women to men, OKCupid found that white males respond to black females at a dismal rate of 32 percent—compare that to a 41 percent response rate to white ladies.When OKCupid crunched the numbers for same-sex daters, they found similar, although generally less extreme, patterns.But one group of males fared particularly well outside of their race: Asian and Latina women showed above average odds of “liking” profiles featuring white men.For guys, things were a bit more complex: Asian and Latino men expressed a preference for women of their own race, while white men slightly preferred Asian women over caucasian women.When it comes to heterosexual dating, they found that messages from white men receive the most responses from nearly every ethnic group.This was especially pronounced with three groups: “White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else—and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively,” according to the report.More distressing than the existence of this fringe service is the racism that plays out on mainstream dating sites every single day.The unfortunate truth is that many online daters show a significant preference for their own race—and white men, per the freaking usual, tend to get favorable treatment.
When it comes to straight daters, they discovered that women expressed a strong preference for men of their own race.
Black women were the least-replied to group, and African American men get more than 20 percent fewer responses than other races.
Dating site Where White People Meet has rightfully stirred outrage this week, with its focus on the wholly over-served population of heterosexual caucasian daters.
The site, created by a gent who says he isn’t racist because he once dated a black woman, has just over 3,700 members and upon a recent visit boasted a grand total of three members currently online.
Black men were more likely to swipe right on Asian, black and Latina women, and they were 6 percent less likely to do so with white women’s profiles.
In 2009, OKCupid analyzed how race affects users’ messaging patterns.
