Racial dating preferences tomtom one updating maps
Ignoring these things as a community isn’t going to solve anything, and talking about it isn’t what’s dividing our community — racism is.As a black, Latino gay man raised in the conservative South, I too once internalized problematic beliefs.
At the time, I didn’t even sleep with men of color (and trust me, I’ve been making up for lost time).The data shown above come from the Facebook dating app, Are You Interested (AYI), which works like this: Users in search of someone for a date or for sex flip through profiles of other users and, for each one, click either “yes” (I like what I see) or “skip” (show me the next profile).When the answer is “yes,” the other user is notified and has the opportunity to respond. The graphic shows what percentage of people responded to a “yes,” based on the gender and ethnicity of both parties (the data are only for opposite-sex pairs of people).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.And both black men and black women got the lowest response rates for their respective genders.
