Black women were more highly excluded than black men and more excluded because of their perceived aggressive personalities or behavior and physical attraction.
Black men were more excluded because of social disapproval.

I enjoy dabbling in the new and the different, and this especially rings true in my dating life.
Growing up, I have always found black men attractive.
Where most women have to lay out in the sun to win a glowing tan, I did not, as I already possessed such a tone year around.
And my hair, although "nappy," has great versatility despite of social belief. Being a woman is hard enough, but being a black woman means you must fight for your rights twice over, and that fact in itself deserves some serious respect alone.Almost every black woman I have spoke to regarding this topic have made it clear that they would rather stick to their own race when it came to dating.Very often these women will blame it on attraction, as most of them are guilty of just not "feeling" it when it comes to men of other races. You cannot possibly find yourself becoming intimate with someone you are just not attracted to.Among non-blacks, whites were the most open to dating blacks, followed by Latinos and Asians.Asians and Latinos were more likely to exclude blacks because of social disapproval, and whites were more likely to exclude blacks because of physical attraction.Employing questionnaires of 381 college students, this study examines the reasons why Latinos, Asians, and whites choose to include or exclude blacks as potential dates.
