Blacks internet dating
Reuters research puts that number much higher: More than 41 million of the 54 million-plus single Americans (or 76 percent) have tried online dating.
New stats from more than 1 million online daters show that whites mostly stick with whites and rarely respond to overtures from potential black love interests.
Black men and women have a far harder time with online dating than almost every other race or ethnicity, with the exception of Asian men.
Research gathered by online dating site Ok Cupid points the finger at a racial bias that has only intensified over the past five years, where Black men and women and Asian men are found to be less attractive by those who sign up for online dating sites than the “average person.” Using a collection of responses to Ok Cupid’s Quick Match system, which allows users to quickly view a profile and give it a rating from 1 to 5, the researchers found that Black men had little racial preference at all—they actually rated Black and white women the same, both below their ratings for Asian and Latina women—while non-Black men all gave very low ratings to Black women.
