Racial preferences revealed by online dating
This study reaches some pretty interesting conclusions.
Of course, people who use online dating services are a self-selecting group, so the results aren’t entirely scientific, and they may not reflect society as a whole.
Tinder launches Social to let users hang out in groups The dating application, which works like popular dating app Tinder, allows users to skim over users’ profiles and respond to each with either a “yes” or “skip”.

But I don't want to be "fetishized" or be treated like a sexual object because of my race.Its users skew older than Tinder’s—about two-thirds of AYI users are older than 35, according to a spokesperson. Well, that partly depends on your race — or so says an analysis of the preferences of users logged into a popular Facebook dating app, Are You Interested, which allows clients to click “yes” if they find a person attractive or take the option of skipping to the next profile page. It's a really great thing to be open to dating awesome people regardless of what their skin color is.
Statistics derived from Facebook dating app Are You Interested (AYI) have revealed as to how many people responded with a “yes” on the basis of one’s gender and ethnicity.Unsurprisingly, most “yes’s” go unanswered, but there are patterns: For example, Asian women responded to white men who “yessed” them 7.8% of the time, more often than they responded to any other race.On the other hand, white men responded to black women 8.5% of the time—less often than for white, Latino, or Asian women. Neanderthals ha left Africa completely by that time.
