“In this sense, racial boundaries function similarly to one-way turnstile gates,” Lin and Lundquist conclude.
“While non-black daters, particularly white men, are well-received when they contact daters of other groups, black daters, particularly black women, are largely confined to a segregated dating market.” To find if any other characteristic was as influential as racial preference, the researchers also examined the way in which race interacted with educational levels of daters.
In a recent census taken on children who are born in America, one out of every twenty children born is a product of an interracial relationship.
This means that out of every one million children born daily in America, ten thousand of them are a product of an interracial relationship. Usually, when a person is a raciest, they can easily find something wrong with anything and everything.
They come in many different varieties such as African-American and Caucasian, Latino and Asian, Chinese and Mexican, etcetera.This tendency to privilege a man’s whiteness over his achieved status is even more pronounced among non-college educated women, who are even more likely to respond to white men’s messages regardless of their level of education.“Importantly, we find that education does not mediate the observed racial preferences among white men and women,” the researchers write.Thoughdaters generally do not search outside their ethnicity, women are open to responding to inquiries from men of similar or more dominant racial status, and men are open to responding to inquiries from everyone but black women.Lin and Lundquist have also cast doubt on existing theories that presume that the preferences of white partners are the driving force in interracial coupling.Black daters, particularly black women, tend to be ignored when they contact non-black groups, even though they respond to other races no less frequently.
