But the fact is, I don't usually fit what Black women tend to look for. I don't like to go to nightclubs, entertainment venues, or social gatherings that they may go to, and I would love to send Jay Z and Beyonce to Alcatraz..that I never have to hear anything about them again. I just don't tend to get along with Black women (generally speaking). The racism in dating indeed seems to vary in terms of degree of ugliness depending on what part of the country you are in.The interests and tastes of Black women tend to be different from my own...about 90% of the time. I think that's a good reason to reopen that prison. I find that Black women tend to want to reverse some of the traditional roles. I have found that a lot of the Black women who have even slightly caught my interest....to prefer white guys. I am just hoping at some point, before I get too old, I can meet "the one".

The below maps from Colin Gordon at the University of Iowa illustrate this phenomenon (h/t The New York Times): As you can see in the maps above, as black residents move into certain neighborhoods, white residents tend to move farther out.

Part of the tension in Ferguson likely stems from the major racial disparity between the city's police force and its citizens.

Rudder looked at millions of OKCupid interactions between 20, involving more than 25 million people, and charted out the racial and gender preferences he found.

To do this, he studied how people rated potential dates in Quick Match, a feature that shows you profiles one at a time and asks you to rate them on a scale of one to five or skip them.

And no, preferring to date someone of a particular race isn't in itself racist.

"Beauty is a cultural idea as much as a physical one, and the standard is of course set by the dominant culture," Rudder writes.

I would be lying if I said I didn't envy that somewhat). She thought it was strange that I paid for everything... Some want the rapper clones...while others want the rich Black doctor or attorney. it leaves me with interracial dating where the options are extremely few and far between. Florida (another adopted home State) is far more diverse than the Midwest... Even growing up in Kansas showed me a lot about different cultures, diversity, etc. Maybe it was just the community (a mixed race school and community may have altered my perception).

But there is a problem with the success angle (which could be a legitimate preference, although in my opinion it makes the women look completely shallow)... even when you take a black guys profile and correct for education (add a college education), and add a middle class income, and show that the guy is decent looking..has a wide variety of interests, he will still face discrimination for being Black. I am open to dating women from all ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. But I am better off for having lived there during some crucial years growing up.

The police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown and the riots that followed are likely a result of years of racial tensions simmering in and around St. Hundreds of people have protested in the streets of Ferguson, a St.

Louis suburb, and it appears racial tensions there have been boiling for years.

If you're a black man or woman or Asian man, you're going to have a tougher time getting a date on OKCupid.
