Racial dating preferences


racial dating preferences-9

You might then ask how I can conclude that our dating preferences are generally racist if white men overwhelmingly prefer Asian women? I had an experience with a white man I met at a bar and found attractive.

That was until, when we started kissing - and I presume dude got excited - he nonchalantly went on about how he loves black men.

Imagine my shock and horror, having pursued a love interest for a while, when he one day turned around and said the following."You have everything I want in a partner - except I don't date black people.

I'm just not attracted to black people."You probably can't imagine why I'd be shocked, let alone horrified by this, can you? And no - I don't think race is an acceptable dating preference. I thought this to be an excellent title for a book that reveals just how secretly racist our dating predilections are.

While he said white people were the most likely to consider relationships with people from other ethnic backgrounds, he said the biggest 'reversals' in preference, are observed among groups that display the greatest tendency towards in-group bias.
