Generally, most users on OKC — and by extension, other sites — “swipe left” on black women and Asian men the most.That data matches Tinder’s data exactly.’s findings, Jack Linshi explained OKC’s 1 to 5 scale and how different racial groups of women rated Asian men.

It was a year later when OKCupid founder Christian Rudder published , a book which collects illustrated data visualizations with stats from OKC user profiles.

The book offers incredible insight into topics like our habits, our political beliefs, our speech patterns — and the assumptions many people still make about entire populations.

“Asian, Latin and white men tend to give black women 1 to 1.5 stars less, while black men’s ratings of black women are more consistent with their ratings of all races of women,” he wrote.

The most highly-rated groups of women by men were those of Asian and Latin descent, with white women not far behind.

A number of first-person accounts, including Michelle Ofiwe in Tinder found a reason to reckon with its role in society earlier this summer.

In a login video exclusive to Hong Kong users, Tinder showed a user swipe left only once on the only Asian male in the commercial. Though the company said in its apology that “it was not our intention” and that “we see in retrospect how the content could be seen as insensitive,” it provided proof that the struggles of dating as a member of a marginalized group are invisible to everyone else. Some women like people with blue eyes, some guys like girls with short hair. While the fetishizing and discrimination of entire races in the realm of dating is wrong, it’s also something an overwhelming amount of people are guilty of.

Black men have made it no secret their liking to white women.

Regina King recently raised the argument that we as black women still have not become completely comfortable dating outside our race.

It should come as no surprise then that white slave owners took in black women as sexual slaves, raping black women as they married white women.

The modern incarnation for stereotyped black women is the plainly-named “angry black woman.” Stereotyped as hot-tempered, independent narcissists in our culture, and in our popular media, this image has been damaging to the cultural collective; in 2016, Anni Ferguson wrote in the how black females are statistically diagnosed with mental illnesses more than twice as often when compared to white women.

It wasn’t high.“While Asian women are more likely to give Asian men higher ratings, women of other races—black, Latina, white—give Asian men a rating between 1 and 2 stars less than what they usually rate men,” wrote Linshi.
