Race dating study romantic online dating ideas
The men that believe in colorblindness, AKA denying acknowledgement of race in a (deeply misguided) attempt to somehow treat every single person the same way no matter what, were less likely to be attracted to black women.
Interestingly, the colorblind ideology had the same effect on both white men and black men, who were also less likely to find black women attractive if they “don’t see color.”The authors of the study, researchers at Tennessee State University and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, noted that the study shows that trying to ignore the existence of race not only doesn’t work, but has the opposite supposed intent of racial harmony."These results are important because they suggest that it is more than a mere absence of prejudice that can foster interracial attraction but that a conscious commitment to the recognition and valuing of difference across race may be what is influential in interracial attraction," the authors wrote.
-- White women prefer white men; Asian and Latina women prefer them "even more exclusively" Are we collectively innocent of racism because no one can really choose who they’re attracted to, or are these results the symptoms of a greater societal ill?
says that white men who make a big deal about how much they’re open to dating women of color are actually not really that open to dating women of color.
More takeaways from the studies: -- Women get three times the responses that men do -- Men are more interested in dating outside their race than women -- All women except black women are most drawn to white men -- Men of all races prefer Asian women -- Black women respond the most -- White men get more replies from almost every group.
