Columbia University -- with research and editing assistance from Harvard University, MIT, and Stanford University -- conducted a study on racial preferences in interracial dating.
In fact, when we run the regressions separately for each race, we find that even Asian women find white, black, and Hispanic men to be more attractive than Asian men.
The final analysis is that women have a stronger preference for dating within their own race than men, but men still have a preference for dating within their own race.
The exception is Asian women who, on average, have no preference against dating white men.
The reason you see so many white male/Asian female couples is not because white men prefer Asian women (in fact they prefer black and Hispanic women over Asian women), but because Asian women like white men as much as they like men of their own race.
On the other hand, women of other races view Asian men as the least desirable race, so Asian men have fewer opportunities to date interracially themselves.
African-American women said yes about 30 percent less often to Hispanic men; about 45 percent less often to white men; about 65 percent less often to Asian men.
White women said yes about 30 percent less often to black or Hispanic men, and about 65 percent less often to Asian men.
Hispanic women said yes about 20 percent less often to black or white men, and 50 percent less often to Asian men.
Asian women didnt discriminate much by race (except for showing a very slight preference for Asian men over black or Hispanic men).
For equal success with an African-American woman, a Hispanic man needs to earn an extra 4,000; a white man needs to earn an additional 0,000.
For equal success with a white woman, an African-American needs to earn an additional 4,000; a Hispanic man needs ,000; an Asian needs 7,000.
