I know this is a bit of a weird question, but please hear me out. I'm about as White as somebody can get (I'm of Icelandic and Irish ancestry), and I have two roommates. One of my roommates is Black, and the other is Asian. We all get along really well together and they're great roommates, but we had an interesting conversation.
We were hanging out earlier today, playing some DOOM, just bullshitting and having a good time. The topic turned to girls (let's face it, when a group of guys in their twenties start talking, girls are bound to come up eventually).
One of my roommates asked me, "So, have you finally got a girlfriend yet?" I replied, "Nah, girls just aren't into me, I guess." He then started to chuckle and said, "Get real, man. You're White, and we all know girls go crazy for White guys." I was confused and said back, "You get real. I don't think girls like a guy just because he's White." We then had a bit of a back-and-forth debate.
I asked him, "Is that really how you feel? That White guys can just get any girl they want?" My other roommate then chipped in and said, "Yeah. Girls don't like Asian dudes. Not even Asian girls like Asian guys. If I was White, I'd probably get like four times as many chicks." I replied back, "That's bullshit! I can't get a single date, yet both of you guys have girlfriends." One of them then said to me, "You're a 6'2" White guy with blue eyes. If you can't get a girl, it means you're not trying at all, man."
I redirected the conversation to another topic, because I really didn't know what to say after that.
They seemed like they were being serious, but I'm not sure if they were just pulling my leg. I never knew people felt that way... Do non-White guys really think it's easier for White guys to find dates?

Lol how do I say this..
I'm East Asian. And I admit there's a kind of innate interest in guys of my ethnicity and white guys more so than other guys. I think some people may still think that white people get it better, not just in dating but in general. I imagine it's got something to do the reminiscent admiration for wealth tracable to the colonization era. Nothing against any ethnicity though, I'm merely being honest.1

It depends on scarcity, and supply/demand. Honestly I don't believe it's easier for white guys to get dates. In fact, it may be harder because there are more whites in America than other ethnicities.
A white friend of mine asked me for advice on how to pick up women. He's not ugly but his game isn't working. I told him that is so easy for me because of the area we're in (mostly white). It seems to be a lot easier for me because there aren't too many black men around. I also have a lot of other things going for me but if we were in an area with less white men, he'd probably dominate the place.1
