It turns out I’m not the only Asian-American male to have troubles with the ladies (and gents and other folks).
Only ten percent of black people said they would never date a white person.
People aged 18-24 are least likely to select a date outside their own race.
Rudo Banya says she's never been attracted to black men. She thinks it's partly because her aunties used to tell her how "rubbish" black men were and told her to "make better choices".
Rudo says itis not racist to be attracted to one race over another, it's just a preference.
And the people in my white hipster bubble I thought I had so much in common with? But as hurt as I felt, I would eventually look back at this as the start of a journey that would change the way I saw myself.
