Asian men 'most excluded' on the Internet dating scene

From the Asian Correspondent:
Apparently Asian men are actually worse off than their black counterparts, at least in one category - dating preferences of white American women. According to a survey of racial exclusion patterns in Internet dating, the most excluded categories are Asian men and black women. A survey of 6,000 Internet dating profiles by Belinda Robnett and Cynthia Feliciano of the University of California, Irvine, reportedly found that "Asian males and black females are more highly excluded than their opposite sex counterparts." In other words, white American women would rather opt for black men than Asian males (including East Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi), although generally they tend to be more educated, more qualified, more gainfully employed and better placed in the social hierarchy than the average black male.
