Black Women are least desirable amongst all races?

According to the following study:
Demographic changes brought about by the recent influx of immigrants from Asia and Latin America have the potential to alter race relations in the United States. But if a study by UC Irvine sociologists is any indication, the cross-cultural revolution is not going to be launched on the internet dating scene, where people often follow racial stereotypes when looking for love.

Social Science Research study
Cynthia Feliciano and Belinda Robnett collected data from Yahoo personals between September 2004 and May 2005, randomly selecting profiles of people ages 18-50 in the Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Atlanta metropolitan regions. While white men were more open to dating outside their race than white women, both had specific racial preferences. White men preferred Asian and Latino dating partners to African Americans; white women were more likely to exclude Asian men.
According to Feliciano, negative portrayals of African American women and Asian men in popular culture could contribute to these preferences.
"Stereotypical images of masculinity and femininity shape dating choices and continue to be perpetuated in the mass media," says Feliciano, sociology and Chicano/Latino studies assistant professor. "The hyper-feminine image of Asian American women contrasts greatly with that of Asian men, who are often portrayed as asexual."
In comparison, the image of the strong African American woman is at odds with idealized notions of submissive and frail women. This may explain why African American women faced high levels of rejection among men, researchers say.
"Cultural portrayals of African American women in the media continue to stress traits seen as negative, such as bossiness," Feliciano says.
Studies point to increasingly tolerant attitudes about interracial relationships, but intermarriage rates remain relatively low, Feliciano says.
Researchers' analysis of minorities' racial preferences showed that Asians, African Americans and Latinos are more likely to include whites as possible dates than whites are to include them. This suggests that whites, as the dominant group in the U.S., remain in the privileged position of being able to facilitate or hinder the full incorporation of minorities.
"Internet dating offers a unique lens through which to understand the process of selecting a partner and how race plays into the selection," she says.
Graduate student Golnaz Komaie co-authored the study. The findings appear online and in the March issue of Social Science Research.

No, they won't go away. Because as "undesirable" as we are, they sure as hell stay on this board trying to get our attention. They're pathetic.

okay this is sad. I am only 17 years old and by me just suffering the web and looking at different realtionships. I am sad, shock, and very sad, because to me the media make black women(BW) seem like we are boosy and out of control. To me that hurt my feelings, because there are some BW that are not boosy or out of control. It's just shock's me because me myself date out of my race. Male is a human being you have feelings just like a women. It's not fair to little kids or teenagers to grow up learing that we can't date certain race based on our parents or judgement by others.

If you date out of your race then shouldn't that tell you that you ARE attractive to other races of men?
