Is race a big factor in dating?

I see people saying "I'd date someone of a different race" all the time both in real life and on the Internet but is it true? One of my friends, who is black, said white/Asian girls get all the attention and she even said she doesn't wanna hit a bar because dudes make her feel undesirable and ugly. But when I talked about this with my guy friends they said she's just playing a race card and she doesn't get the attention she wants purely bc she's not as pretty. What y'all think?
