For example, Black women were still responded to the least among all bisexual and lesbian women, but the difference was smaller than that among heterosexuals.

LGB people are much more in favor of interracial marriage, but the same gap in preference for same-race partners exists, though it is smaller.

A recent survey found that young Americans ages 18 to 29 have nearly universal acceptance of interracial dating and marriage within their own families.

Older Americans are not as tolerant: About 55 percent of those ages 50 to 64 and just 38 percent of those 65 or older said they would not mind if a family member married someone of another race.

Though any two people could be compatible, the study found some remarkable racial and ethnic dynamics: In a later post, OKCupid released findings from an analysis of their members who are lesbian, bisexual, or gay.

It seems that some of the same patterns emerged among LGB people, but they were less prevalent.

Some social scientists who have studied racial attitudes have included questions about one’s willingness to date someone of a different race or ethnicity.

But, I hesitate to suggest that a preference for one’s own race and ethnicity, or certain races and ethnicities over others, is a sign of racism.

Instead, I would argue that our dating and sexual preferences are shaped by social factors, including racism.

We can see that white (Anglo) standards of beauty are still the dominant standard in the US and that people of color are pressured to meet those standards by altering their hair, skin color, even facial features through cosmetic surgery.

This can translate into a number of things, including greater difficulty finding romantic sexual partners and possibly “lowering” one’s standards for potential partners.
