Skarphedin talks about racial preferences in online dating, and concludes that people generally prefer to date within their own race.
He says that in-group dating would be much more pronounced in North America if not for the overwhelming numerical superiority of whites (which effectively forces minorities to be more open to inter-racial dating than would otherwise be the case).
So, for example, one of Skarphedin’s charts indicates that Asian men and women don’t differ all that much in their preferences. (Stats and explanations here.) And Asian men have definitely noticed.
Here’s a passage from a long and very frustrated-sounding comment on a post at the blog Single Asian Male (the site seems to be down, so I had to linked to the cached page).

Afghanistan is one of the world's poorest countries, made worse by almost constant warfare in the late twentieth century.
