Feel free to use any of the statistics and (or) graphics on your site as long as you remember to credit Dating as the original source and link back to us using the appropriate “Credit URL”.

As a sociologist, I am entirely unsurprised that race matters, especially in such a personal process like dating/mating.
However, these findings may come as a surprise to the (quite significant) segments of the population who identify as color-blind; those who label contemporary society post-racial. Social psychologists know that what people say and what they do have little empirical connection.
