Young, black men, on the other hand, were most likely to throw themselves wide-open into the romantic fray and were willing to date all races, according to researchers from the University of California, Berkeley.They took a look at racial preferences and online communications of people who subscribed between 20 to a major Web-based dating service that they agreed to not name.Some are major, others are subtle, and others are largely common or acceptable across the board.On the variation, the way an Asian man will treat his lady is different from the way a Caucasian or an African would.But though love may be blind, it’s still not really color-blind.New stats from more than 1 million online daters show that whites mostly stick with whites and rarely respond to overtures from potential black love interests.On the streets, they give interracial couples dagger eyes, say mean things, and in worse scenes assault them. It takes a lot of inner strength and that makes interracial dating different. Cultural Differences Every race has its own ways of being, and of doing things.
A recent survey found that young Americans ages 18 to 29 have nearly universal acceptance of interracial dating and marriage within their own families.
These non-English terms for "race-mixing" are not considered as offensive as "miscegenation", although they have historically been tied to the caste system (Casta) that was established during the colonial era in Spanish-speaking Latin America.
Some groups in South America, however, consider the use of the word mestizo offensive because it was used during the times of the colony to refer specifically to the mixing between the conquistadores and the indigenous people.
Subscribers indicated a racial preference in their cyber-profile, tailoring their profiles to reflect a desire to date people only of the same race, of another race or of any race.
Using their profiles, researchers compared their stated racial preferences with the races of the people they ended up contacting. So the question then becomes, When you have a free situation where people can contact whom they please, what will happen?
