Suppose a representative from each race were equal in terms of non-physical traits (e. g. personality, education, occupation etc.), are all races equal on the dating front?
Are all races equal on the dating scene?

Christian Rudder's research about who people contact and answer and go out with on OKCupid suggests there are still strong racial biases - the usual crap - in dating just as in the rest of life.
yeah.. i think so..0
No because everyone is not obligated to be attracted to all races.0
Definitely no! But not complaining as an East Asian :)0
If you date somebody from your different race, look dor their personalities if they are nice or good people. Don't look for their phsical traits.0

No they would not be equal and the reason why is because..
1) Whether we believe it or not, ethnicity is a big part in physical attraction. Some people are simply not attracted to others of another ethnicity due to a lack of a desired feature. If a women likes men with blonde hair, then she's going to automatically prefer white men. If she desire men with a darker complexion then she's going to gravitate to Latin and Black men.
2) Even though they have equal non-physical traits, they are not entirely equal in how they are represented in the media and the media plays a big role in how we view others who are different from us. Black men, black women, and Asian men are portrayed horribly for the most part in Western media. White women, white men, and Latinas are portrayed more favorably. This bias in media portrayal easily influence people to subconsciously be bias in their dating preference.0
It has been proven otherwise.
No. There is no such thing as fair, and there is no such thing as true equality.0
No, ofcourse not. There are some races i'm attracted and some i'm not attracted to.0
Yes of course they are0
Depends about the other person. I know i am open to any.0
yes.. but get over people of x race not liking you.0
For me it would depend how they looked. Not skin color but facial structure. I've seen beautiful African women for example but they are less common than beautiful European or Asian women. I've never even seen a picture of a Melanesian or Aborigine I thought was beautiful. It's all what you are used to I suppose.0
