As for the other races, it's difficult to say, but the stats may be more reflective of the kinds of people who would go to a site where the majority of participants are White anyway (73%).
I've also noticed that males outnumber females by a ratio of 1.6:1.
So, looking at this site's stats alone, one would get the impression that for every 100 females who are single and looking, there are 160 male counterparts who are also single and looking.
That seems a bit skewed, as I don't think it's necessarily reflective of the stats in society at large. All call us "privileged" and they say we made this "study" to boost our ego.
The article basically goes on to explain exactly what the title says, how your can affect the messages you get.

She went in the post posting a link from OKCupid, a online dating site, about a article they wrote a few years ago.
OKCupid's article was titled "How your Race can affect the messages you get".And also after reading it,it made ALOT of sense to me personally.Then I'm even more so convinced that the stats are most likely true seeing how the comments on the article, about 1,557, make the results even more believable.Here's the chart of users' preferences from 2009: And here's the chart from 2014: As you can see, the biases stayed pretty consistent between 20. The results here are pretty much the same as data taken from other dating sites.And no, preferring to date someone of a particular race isn't in itself racist.They accuse us of taking that study too seriously, but the only ones who do it are non-whites who get offended by it and act like us HAVE TO give them a chance or we are labeled as "racist". This test is not really a representation of real life.
