Go Read This | The REAL ‘Stuff White People Like’ « OkTrends

I’m lucky enough to know very little about the online dating world or what it can teach us, that said, finding a new source of data about self expressed interests IS a fascinating thing.

The folks at the OKTrends blog from OKCupid have a thoroughly interesting post about the differences between races, as expressed by self selected groups of those races. Very interesting indeed!

As for the interests of white women, you have romance novels, some country music, and a broad selection of Good Housekeeping type stuff. It’s also amazing the extent to which their list shows a pastoral or rural self-mythology: bonfires, boating, horseback riding, thunderstorms. I remind you that OkCupid’s user base is almost all in large cities, where to one degree or another, if you find yourself doing much of any of these things, civilization has come to an end.
