Are white women, in general in modern society, more attracted to black men than white men?Thank you very much, I really look forward to your response.You get these gems: 'Black women are repulsive' 'Asian women are gold diggers' 'Latin women are loyal' It's pretty depressing stuff.
The sheer number of cack-handed replies women of Asian ancestry get on dating sites has even spawned its own dedicated tumblr, Creepy White Guys.
Hilarious if you are simply an outside observer, and probably pretty depressing if you're someone getting these messages.

No, you are probably seeing more of this rejection than is really there, but I would say many more white women than ever are attracted to black men, judging from the visibility of the phenomenon and the rates of interracial marriage. Feminism has attacked the virility of white men, not black men.
According to his results, in some cases it may be fear of rejection playing a part in that reluctance.
And that in its turn may be because some people online have had bad experiences with feeling fetishised when someone contacts them: a real chicken-and-egg situation.
Dating site OK Cupid has carved out a nice little sideline in blogging about the statistics of their more successful users, to try to help people along the way, busting myths about what does and does constitute a good profile photo and whether eating oatmeal correlates with people you'll like or drinking beer correlates with sex on the first date.
But noting trends is not the same as endorsing them - and some trends are simply disturbing.
I live in Chicago, and the stereotype is that black men chase after the white women, but what I see in public is that white women have this stare, this gaze at black men. The multiculturalist and feminist advertising has created a really bad mixture in Chicago; it’s in commercials, billboards, on buses, and ads everywhere, even public service announcements.
There’s this encouragement and social pressure for people to date interracially, especially the white female and black male pairing.
Yes, I do think whites are ashamed of their race and white men probably project less confidence.
