Asian men are the least desirable racial group to women
On OkCupid, users can rate each other on a 1 to 5 scale. 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. Black and Latino men face similar discrimination from women of different respective races, while white men’s ratings remain mostly high among women of all races. And black women are the least desirable racial group to men. Asian, Latino 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. But women who are Asian and Latina receive higher ratings from all men — in some cases, even more so than white women.
