We're just like you.  We connected through an online dating service--OK Cupid, to be exact.  Our first date was at a fun Seattle tapas-and-sangria bar.  We fell in love.  We are engaged to be married.  We know that you, too, can find love.  Let us help you.

Do You Date Within Your Race? Probably So, Says Study.

The National Academy of Science recently published a study, "The Limits of Racial Prejudice," by Kevin Lewis in which he looked at 126,134 interactions between OK Cupid users of different races to gauge search, contact, and response rates between different races.  Lewis pulled OK Cupid user data on members who self-identified as either Asian, Black, Indian, Hispanic/Latino or White. Not surprisingly, he found that most everyone is searching within their own race.

According to a Los Angeles Times article on the study, "Indians and other Asians were the most exclusive about whom they messaged, followed by Latinos and blacks, with whites being the most likely to cross group lines..."

The problem is that Lewis unleashes words such as "biased," "prejudice," "racially segregated," and more in his study.

The last we checked, a person is allowed to like whomever they like, without being called a racist.  We do not believe that dating outside of race should be a preferred action, with race-centric dating being labelled as inferior, though that is how Lewis is branding it.  We believe that mixed-race dating is undeniably great when that's what each person wants.

In short, it's about two people getting together and liking each other, without societal pressures to go in any direction.
