Think of all of the wonderful things that you can learn from different races.
There are many fascinating cultures out there that are very interesting.
An online survey conducted in October 2001 found that 49% of students said they had dated someone of a different race. According to one news report, there were 117,000 black wife-white husband couples in the United States in 2006, an increase from 95,000 such couples in 2000. Online interracial dating services assist such people by making it easier for them to find other people interested in interracial relationships.
The use of a site with interracial personals, as opposed to a general internet dating site, can save a person considerable time and effort.
However people were more willing to reply to a user of a different race than they were to initiate contact.
And right after they did so, for about a week, they were more likely to start a conversation with someone of another race.

How racist are Americans when it comes to selecting a mate? He only included heterosexual interactions between users who self-identified with the site's five largest racial categories: Black, White, Asian (East Asian), Hispanic/Latino and Indian.
has doubled in the past 30 years, according to online dating habits, we're still pretty racist. To examine how racial prejudice affects our romantic decisions, Kevin Lewis, a sociologist at the University of California at San Diego, analyzed messages sent by more than 126,000 Ok Cupid users over a two-and-a-half month period.
Lewis found similar patterns: "Most men (except black men) are unlikely to initiate contact with black women, all men (including Asian men) are unlikely to reply to Asian women, and although women from all racial backgrounds tend to initiate contact with men from the same background, women from all racial backgrounds also disproportionately reply to white men." Ok Cupid, like so many places, is good place to be a white dude.
Lewis suggests that one factor in online dating's racial segregation could be what he calls preemptive discrimination.
