When someone lists their racial preference of their date how much stock should I put in that? I get messages from guys who don't have my race listed under their preferences so I don't respond. Neither do I message a guy if he lists preferences that don't include my race. I just feel if that's the standard for you then I'm wasting my time.

If they message you, you can go ahead and ignore their preferences. If you have a picture up or a race listed, they know what they're getting into.
Personally, I wouldn't seek out guys who aren't into my race. It's like applying to a job that requires a degree you don't have. If they come to you then that's great, but you shouldn't put effort into someone who desires something you're not when you could be putting effort into someone who does desire you.
But it's probably not that big of a deal to most guys. I primarily like white guys an I seek them out more than any other race, but I've been extremely attracted to men of all races.1
