White men and black women dating
Black women and Asian men make up two demographics that have been long stigmatized as not-ideal sexual and romantic partners. It’s that the app compiles data on the quick preferences, and prejudices, of millions around the world, exposing an uncomfortable and racist reality.
Basic knowledge of human history, particularly American history, reveal where and how the alienation of black women and Asian men began.
Black men have made it no secret their liking to white women.
Regina King recently raised the argument that we as black women still have not become completely comfortable dating outside our race.
A number of first-person accounts, including Michelle Ofiwe in Tinder found a reason to reckon with its role in society earlier this summer.
In a login video exclusive to Hong Kong users, Tinder showed a user swipe left only once on the only Asian male in the commercial. Though the company said in its apology that “it was not our intention” and that “we see in retrospect how the content could be seen as insensitive,” it provided proof that the struggles of dating as a member of a marginalized group are invisible to everyone else. Some women like people with blue eyes, some guys like girls with short hair. While the fetishizing and discrimination of entire races in the realm of dating is wrong, it’s also something an overwhelming amount of people are guilty of.
America’s first Asians endured discrimination from whites who felt their jobs were stolen, so their effeminate clothes, alien languages, and smaller physical features became targets.
