There was a study done with 2.4 million people of various races and from stats
The dating preferences have remained the same from studies done. So from the looks of it Male wise, White men are the most liked group and Asian men are the least liked men. With Women, Asian women are the most liked women while Black women are the least liked even by black men.
I think instead of going for white or latin men, Black women should go for Asian men, and Asian men should go for black women. From the charts they both gave the other higher ratings compared to the other races and ethnicities. So I think that would be more of a better match than the other pairings. I notice the media tries to push black women to date outside their race, white men in particular, but I don't see how that would aid anything.
Black women were the only group of women who weren't interested in white men, and by and large white men aren't interested in black women. The dating pool for white men is bigger so why would they go for black women. Logically it makes more sense for black women and Asian men to date the other. Compared to the other races of men Asian men gave black women -16% compared to white men's -18% and latin men -22%.
Black women also gave Asian men -11% compared to white women's -12% and latin women's -16%. So black women and Asian men like each other more than other races of men and women. But that's the least common interracial pariring. Why? In 2014 black women gave Asian men more favorable ratings than white or latin men, and even though black women were generally disliked by all men Asian men gave them the highest ratings after black men.
I'm a white girl so take my opinion for a grain of salt but I think Asian Men/ Black women pairing would probably be the best match. But back to my originals question, what's your race and racial preference when dating interracially and why? Why meaning what characterisitics attracts you to that certian race or ethnicty.
