Why is it that by statistics standards in America-White Women, Asian Women, Indian Women, and Latino Women mostly light skinned are more desirable. And Black women are least desirable. I heard that in other countries they desire black women more compared to America.
I always thought women were just women regardless of color. there is ugly and beautiful... Smart and stupid in every race. So I do not understand why people discriminate and say they have "preferences"(understand preferences-smart, hardworking, etc.. but this is often stated differently) which really means you are just putting people in a box due to positive and negative stereotypes and what your family says. I hope that in the future america will be better and we won't have to hear men of every color say " I only date -Insert Race Here-" or " I only prefer -Insert Race Here".
Here some stuff I found that really made me ask this question:

People usually date the same race as themselves. I don't think it a preference thing. For some it is but for most it's more circumstantial.
For example, I'm white and I've never dated anyone who wasn't white, well I did date someone who could be considered middle eastern but she looked white.
Anyway, the point is that I haven't only dated white people because of preference but because of my circumstances, I don't know any women of other races so I've never really had the chance. I don't have a racial fetish either so I haven't tried to seek out certain races.
Another reason is cultural differences. When I dated the middle eastern girl, I felt very uncomfortable around her family and I'm sure they didn't approve of her dating me being a white guy.1
