Study Shows Black People And Asian Men Can’t Get A Date On OkCupid

If you’re a black man or woman or Asian man, you’re going to have a tougher time getting a date on OKCupid.

Via HuffPo reports:

Users of the popular dating site have a clear bias against certain races, according to a new blog post by OKCupid co-founder Christian Rudder.

Rudder looked at millions of OKCupid interactions between 2009 and 2014, involving more than 25 million people, and charted out the racial and gender preferences he found. To do this, he studied how people rated potential dates in QuickMatch, a feature that shows you profiles one at a time and asks you to rate them on a scale of one to five or skip them.

Asian men, black men and black women got the worst ratings, while Asian women and Latina women fared the best.

It’s not just people on OKCupid who feel this way. The results here are pretty much the same as data taken from other dating sites. And no, preferring to date someone of a particular race isn’t in itself racist.

“Beauty is a cultural idea as much as a physical one, and the standard is of course set by the dominant culture,” Rudder writes. “I believe that’s what you see in the data here.”

On the other hand, when asked by Salon whether his data suggest that men are sexist and everyone is racist, he responded: “The more you look at the data, the more it does confirm the cynics’ intuition about humanity.”

The results in 2009:

The results in 2014:

If you look at the charts appears that black women are particularly loyal to black men and the least open to dating cross-culturally. Do you think Black people and Asians have a really hard time finding love online??
