Terrible news for black women. Super controversial. Also, singles that have never been married don't generally want to talk to divorcees. Non-smokers don't want to talk to smokers. There are many more of these non-affinities that idating sites can shine a light on.

In this case in particular, as throughout the spectrum, online dating is just a microcosm of people's behavior in the real world.

For years, the TV talk shows have done many episodes with black women complaining about being passed over by black men in favor of white women, especially blondes.

And in general, it would seem to be logical that one online dater may not approach another about a potential interracial relationship unless they know for sure that person is interested in one. That's not racial segregation. It's just a relationship preference. So that makes a site like AfroRomance.com a good option.

Isn't it what this idea was from beginning? You get to choose the personality of ya dream partner than getting surprised when a relationship may have gone far.
