Default a question for black women?

so i live in an area that is only about 25% white. I myself am white and single. most of my dating is threw online dating sites and about 50% of my dates are Hispanic women due to the demographics of my area. I often here many Hispanic women in my area say that they prefer white men over Hispanic men as well as many of the women on the dating sites openly say that they are looking for a white man. To add to this many of my white friends say the prefer Hispanic women over white women

on the other hand most of the black women I have ever had the conversation with say they are not opposed to interracial dating but are just simply not into most white men. I see many of the black women on the dating sites only list black or Latino men as possible matches. where as about half of the black guys I have been friends with or played ball with in college flat out say they prefer white women over black women.

my question is why are so many black women not into white guys

Black women more so than black men are more traditional, therefore sticking mainly with their own race.

However, these days you do see more black women dating white guys but black men are more likely to date outside of their race than black women.

Most people tend to gravitate towards their own race, especially if they have options. All races do it, perhaps it's a drive towards ethnic survival, no idea. People only question "why" when they aren't getting something that they want. Most white men only list white or maybe sometimes Asian on dating sites... I don't get bent out of shape about it because I'm excluded. That's life, not everybody is going to like you.

That's right! Also, just because we don't want to take you out doesn't mean we don't want to be your friend. That's a big difference.

I agree, in general people tend to gravitate towards people that look like themselves.

It isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I'm sure supply and demand will also kick in as some point.

Yes. Options - wait, I actually mean the lack of options - changes everything.
