Theoretically, online dating is a place for people to expand their horizons, meet people outside their ordinary social circle. When searching for a partner, people largely stick to their own race.
When responding, people tend to prefer people of similar races, and discriminate against others, according to a new study highlighted by Sander Wagner.
In particular, Ok Cupid’s (IACI) match percentage is based on three core values: your answer, how you would like someone else to answer and how important the question is to you.
Users of the popular dating site have a clear bias against certain races, according to a new blog post by OKCupid co-founder Christian Rudder.And no, preferring to date someone of a particular race isn't in itself racist."Beauty is a cultural idea as much as a physical one, and the standard is of course set by the dominant culture," Rudder writes.Rudder looked at millions of OKCupid interactions between 20, involving more than 25 million people, and charted out the racial and gender preferences he found.To do this, he studied how people rated potential dates in Quick Match, a feature that shows you profiles one at a time and asks you to rate them on a scale of one to five or skip them.
