Meanwhile, those who support multiculturalism believe society should accept a multitude of ethnic and cultural groups and celebrate their differences. The participants were asked to rate the attractiveness of women featured in eight fake online dating profiles.Three of the profiles featured black women, three featured white women, one featured an Asian woman, and one featured a Latina woman.

The findings revealed the participants reported greater attraction toward women of their same race.White men were more likely to give higher ratings to white women, and black men were more likely to give higher ratings toward the black women.However, the participants’ ideology greatly influenced their responses.The more a white male believed in a “color-blind” ideology, the less likely he expressed interest in dating one of the black women.“Thus, although white men endorsed statements which suggest that race does not matter in society, it appeared that race did matter in their personal lives as indicated by their romantic attraction,” wrote the researchers.Unlike the white participants, no correlation was found between black participants who believed in “color-blindness” and their attraction to white women.When it comes to interracial dating and intercultural romances, skin color tends to get noticed, although attitudes about interracial dating have become more accepting with each generation, with a 90 percent approval from millennials.

Now, a recent study published in the suggests our romantic attractions toward people of other races is influenced by our ideological beliefs, like “color-blindness” and multiculturalism.

People who support a “color-blind” ideology believe the best way to fight race discrimination is to ignore the concept of race altogether.

In other words, the ideology affirms the belief “race should not and does not matter,” according to Psy Post. Neville of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, sought to observe how these concepts influenced interracial romantic attraction among a cohort of 124 heterosexual black and white college men.

Black participants who supported this ideology were less attracted to women of their own race.

Multiculturalism had a different effect on interracial romantic attraction.

In other words, the more a participant believed in multiculturalism, the more likely they were to be attracted to women of another race.
