Here’s a pretty interesting study done by the folks over at the dating site OkCupid.com, who pooled a sample of 526,00 users to see what different key words various races used in their profile descriptions.
We selected 526,000 OkCupid users at random and divided them into groups by their (self-stated) race. We then took all these people’s profile essays (280 million words in total!) and isolated the words and phrases that made each racial group’s essays statistically distinct from the others’.
