Last week, we used some data from OkCupid to dismantle the myth of gay people and straight people being different. This week we're shoring up the, what seem to be, truths about the different races and regions. They randomly selected 526,000 users and seperated them by their self-defined race. They used their profile essays and identified words and phrases that were distinct.
Keep in mind that these are all just things people think that other people will like about their personalities. It is doubtful that many people would lie, but it is common to like things that other people like to feel normal. Take it with a grain of salt. You could possibly use this info as a basis for getting to know someone of a different race.

Next up, let's take a look at what the Latin populations are diggin'.
Now onto Asian people.
Finally, we see what Indian people like.
