This is especially true for men in the online dating world. While average looking ethnic women often get the attention of men, average ethnic men are rarely received as well as average white men, in general.
When white men are available, women of all races in general seem to prefer them.
This data from the Facebook app "Are You Interested" is closely matched by the data from every other dating site or service.
If we really want to help some people that are struggling in the dating game, first we have to let go of the taboos regarding discussions on race.
There's nothing wrong with accepting the reality that white people and "whiteness" are more preferred than not. And keep in mind this isn't about *you* as an individual reading this. It's about western society at large, so to deny this is true is to deny a demonstrable truth backed up by empirical data.
When dealing with a problem, the most effective solution usually begins by defining the problem as accurately as possible. Ethnic people, and especially ethnic men should recognize where they fit in the dating game and adjust their strategies accordingly. Lying to people is only going to worsen their frustrations.
