    Just to get a taste of how racial preferences really are on Grindr, in the first part of this experiment I decided to create two fake profiles of different races.

    Profile 1: Average-to-below average looking white guy, you could only see his face, not body. Short hair, decent beard, dark hair and eyes. 5'6", 150 lbs.

    Profile 2: Good looking latino guy, light skin, beard, glasses. You could see his chest (hairy), fit, same stats as Profile 1.

    Profile 1 got responses almost immediately after the picture was approved. Some started the conversation with "so handsome", "cute" (even though the guy was really nothing special). Most of the good looking white guys replied to my messages, but not the super fit or extremely handsome ones. I also got a lot of messages from Asians.

    Profile 2 got some messages (less than Profile 1, though). Messaged the same guys as Profile 1 and got only like half of them to respond. I also noticed that most conversations were started by other Latinos.

    Conclusion: even good looking white guys prefer to talk to the average-below average looking guy of the same race instead of the good looking guy of the other race. White guys get more replies and are considered more desirable.

    Stay tuned for the next experiment: black guy and Asian.

    What area do you live? Here in the LA area, it's the total opposite. Light skinned Latinos get all the attention. From white guys at least.

    You're assuming everyone has your same taste in men. Not to mention some guys may not like dark skin, just like some men don't like short or very tall guys. Give it a rest and just enjoy your life. Why worry so much about other people's preferences? And even if you do prove this is true, what are you going to do about it? Sue every guy who dares have different preferences than you? icon_confused.gif

    Dude latino is not a race. Latinos might be mulatos, mestizos, whites, blacks...... If the guy whose pic you used looked mexican then he was mestizo.

    The latino had white skin, but had noticeable latino features. He looked Colombian.

    And also, the experiment was done in Manhattan.

    My point with this experiment is to really prove that people have been brainwashed by the media into thinking that Whites are more desirable and they they're willing to go with an ugly white person as long as he's white, instead of an attractive person of another race.

    You assume a lot about other's preferences. I doubt many guys reject people based on their race. That would be totally idiotic. However.....if a person knows in advance that they're not attracted to dark skin, broad noses and big lips, it makes total sense that they will not be attracted to 99% of black men. Same with someone who doesn't like pale skin or thin lips; they will not be attracted to most white people. But I highly doubt anyone would make their choices based on the race of the person. Rather, I believe it's the characteristics that the different races possess. I don't think it's as nefarious as you seem to believe.

    Who owns the media? Older white men. Everything out there is catered to feed their ego and make the world their oyster. The Spectre movie made waves because, for once, one of the Bond girls was as old as Bond himself instead of half his age.

    Would be interesting to see pictures of your examples.

    LOL, of course Radd would be here to defend the status quo

    I'm not so sure about that. If the white guy was really unattractive, then neither the white guy or ethnic guy would get any attention. You're going to have post pics you used. Your own opinions of attractiveness might be downplaying the white guy.

    I defended nothing. Apparently you're offended by common sense. Sorry that you don't get enough white dick.

    who fucking cares. We all know that white men age the fastest out of all the races. Let them have their moment in the spotlight, because in a couple of more years those crows feet and wrinkles will eventually start to show. Black don't crack, Asians are practically immune to fucking time, and Latino's also have a good amount of melanin to fight free radicals, and out last the white men in youth.

    I don't understand why we have to give so much publicity to this whole white man agenda. If they want to date other white guys who fucking cares let them. Stop bitching, they will eventually start going for the other races when they are dried up like a fucking prune.

    Races have different characteristics and thats a fact, blacks have fat lips and tight curly hair, asians are short with little hair, etc etc. To each their own, it's called preferences. And to blame this because of a "brain wash" is a lame excuse some people use to explain why others prefer certain things usually they're not.

    yea if all white guys are as stupid and moronic as you are then it will definitely show the other minorities how shitty white guys are. If you think every Asian, Latino, or Blacks have all the same characteristics then you're truly the biggest idiot on this site. I see some white guys that are models but you are nothing like that.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidNone of this really proves anything. To reach a conclusion like this you'd have to repeat this type of experiment dozens of times. You'd have to use several samples of white guys and of Latino men.

    Not to mention all of this is by some guy who hides his user name. For all we know this is all hearsay.

    Anyone can start a thread like this and make up these types of claims.


    I believe that's why he called it an unscientific experiment rather than a scientific experiment

    There was a study done way ahead already with dating profiles on match.com. 40% of white guys preferred to date within their own race. 60% of white guys said they would date Latino guys. It appears OP's finding matches the statistics according to match.com. OP reported half of white guys replied to Latino guys which is relevant to the 60% who would date Latino guys on match.com from the abstract I viewed.

    Gay white males excluded Latino males the least even when compared to heterosexual and homosexual dating world. Social scientist speculated that gay Latino males were socially accepted groups of people in towards the gay male white group.

    Is it already quite known how white guys were pretty much the most desired group of people and least excluded. I have already seen a few videos where as a black and Asian who shocked that they revived less replied compared to a white guy. Anyone who can see the bigger picture know what this means which sucks. Oh well. OP pretty much said that he was going to do an experiment when I don't see a need already when it's already been done.

    The question is, are those white men who say they'd date latinos, referring to European-looking hispanics? That's something that should be considered.

    Get over yourself, fool; ALL blacks have curly hair, black skin, flat noses and thick lips. It's a racial trait. Just like asians with narrow eyes, straight black hair, etc. These and many other traits are characteristics of these races.

    Denying the obvious only prove what a fool you are. And you don't even know how I look.

    Yeah I remember that study. I was shocked that gay Indians seem to prefer black men over white guys.

    You didn't PROVE anything. YOU said the white guy was "average" originally. Now you say ugly.

    So all this proves brainwashing and a preference for ugly white guys? You've LEAP to conclusions, not just jumped.

    At best this could be anecdotal evidence. You evidence is light, your conclusions seem too strong, implying a preconceived notion.

    FAIL

    I bet my body is tighter than yours....you and your 20 year old pics. Not sure if I ever complemented you on your fanny pack; I'm sure you made the boys jealous with it! icon_lol.gif And you're the one turning this thread into one about age, not me (as usual.)

    I don't mean to cause a fuss, but why are so many non-white guys so "thirsty" for white guys? It's one thing to just like someone, it's a whole different issue to be so obsessed with one specific race/color, etc... It's like an obsession with people. And awkwardly, the same people lusting for white men are the ones who won't even date their own race/color, etc...
