Asians dating black men
"Beauty is a cultural idea as much as a physical one, and the standard is of course set by the dominant culture," Rudder writes.
No one would want to be in the shoes of a black man in America. Having the highest incarceration and unemployment rates, not to mention a reputation for violent behavior and drug use, black males are the most stereotyped segment of American demography. Apparently Asian men are actually worse off than their black counterparts, at least in one category -- dating preferences of white American women.
How does one explain this predicament of Asian men, who are raised to be proud and upright men of character with undisputed leadership roles assigned in the family and society?On the other hand, blacks and Latinos were part of the turbulent American history from the very outset, and hence have a history of social relationships with European Americans.The enviable standing of black men in sports and music -- two major preoccupations of American life -- also gives them an advantage over Asian men, who are conspicuously absent in American popular culture.Generally, most users on OKC — and by extension, other sites — “swipe left” on black women and Asian men the most.
If you're a black man or woman or Asian man, you're going to have a tougher time getting a date on OKCupid.It was a year later when OKCupid founder Christian Rudder published , a book which collects illustrated data visualizations with stats from OKC user profiles.
