Race and Dating–Internet News Article

Internet dating is fertile territory for people who study social patterns. Belinda Robnett and Cynthia Feliciano studied racial exclusion patterns in the Journal Social Forces. They looked at over 6000 internet dating profiles and found that whites are least open to dating outside their group, with Asians and Latinos close behind. Asian males and black females are more highly excluded than their opposite sex counterparts.


Please leave your comment below on your opinion. Are Whites, Asians, and Latinos least open to dating outside their group? Is there a cultural indifference that has enforced this statistic or is this a racial stereotype in your opinion?
