OkTrends is original research and insights from OKCupid, a dating service. They have compiled their observations and statistics from hundreds of millions of OkCupid user interactions, all to explore the data side of the online dating world.
They seek to answer the question: What is it that makes a culture unique? How are whites, blacks, asians, or whomever different from everybody else? What tastes, interests, and concepts define an ethnic group?
For instance, it turns out that all kinds of people list sushi as one of their favorite foods. But Asians are the only group who also list sashimi; it’s a racial outlier. Similarly, as we shall see, black people are 20 times more likely than everyone else to mention soul food, whereas no foods are distinct for white people, unless you count diet coke.
