If you’ve everzwijn signed up for an online dating service, you’re usual with the basic questions that are designed to help you find your volmaakt match. One of the questions, inevitably, touches on your étnico preferences.
Unluckily, both anecdotal and scientific evidence suggests that most Americans are terribly racist te online dating, despite their aspirations to the contrary. Consider, for example, a latest probe by Kevin Lewis of the University of California San Diego, which found that étnico prejudice has a significant influence on dating decisions.
According to Lewis, users of every étnico background are more likely to commence conversations with people of their own wedren. Moreover, studs of all backgrounds are unlikely to voeling both black and Asian women, and all female users were most likely to react to the advances of white dudes. That’s racism, folks, and it is disheartening news for those who believe wij’re living te a ",post-racial", America.
Interestingly, even when women of color are contacted by white studs, their practices are still tinged with racism and prejudice. Reddit’s AskWomen Subreddit recently asked women of color for their observation of racism te online dating, and their answers were illuminating.
",I usually get comments about how ‘white’ I act, or how I’m not a actual black woman because I’m not noisy and I’m getting a degree,", said biracial Reddit user Mmvela.
Another Reddit user recalled trolling pick-up lines that were insulting and brutal for no reason. ",I’m Asian. I get people telling ‘ching chong chang,’ which doesn’t make any sense at all and I don’t even speak Mandarin,", she said.
Black Reddit user TerribleAttitude explained that hier practices weren’t all bad, but non-black guys didn’t seem to understand how insulting their petite talk came across. ",It wasn’t necessarily a onveranderlijk deluge of racist and fetishizing bullshit,", she said. ",But it wasn’t uncommon, either. On the more mild side it wasgoed, ‘Ooh, I love black damsels/soul/sass/church/soul food/culo clapping/obsession with afros.’", That doesn’t sound very mild to mij.
