From The New York Times:
Many black women are open to dating interracially. But that might be more difficult than it appears. A much talked-about report from the popular online dating Web site OKCupid.com found that black women received fewer responses than any other group, even though they sent the most messages. They also found that white men and women have a stronger preference than any other group to date and marry within their own race. Similarly, a 2008 study from the University of California, Irvine, found that women of color were more likely to include white men in their dating pools while white men were more likely to exclude black women.
