Racism in dating world

“White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else — and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively.” “Men don’t write black women back.” Their gay data reads the same: “Blacks get fewer responses.” Have you closed your browser and crawled into a hole to live out the rest of your days unencumbered by society and its bullshit yet?

If you think they’d respond better to pictures, attach a few tumblr and twitter memes to that outgoing message.

To those saying "No fat, no fem, no asian, bo black" on their #Grindr/#Tinder profiles, I say "No thank you".

Here’s the thing K(ar)en, the problem isn’t the children. I don’t even see color, except for red, which is the color of the blood I previously mentioned.

The problem is: authority figures not being taught how to non-violently assess and handle non-compliance; a system set up to capitalize on the imprisonment, endangerment, and death/murder of people of color; people of color being labelled “disrespectful” and “thuggish” for challenging authority, but when non-POC do it, they’re exercising their rights; black/brownness being read as “immediate threat” and “deserving of punishmemt: regardless of behavior; militarized security gauards in schools; non-POC not batting an eye at a child being thrown to the ground, assaulted, pushed up against walls, punched until bloody, kicked in the ribs, shaken by the neck, and — I hate to be the one to tell you this, K — it’s because that child is not White. We’ve heard it all before: “Isn’t #Black Lives Matter divisive? Bob Marley said it best: let’s get together and feel alright. ” This would be where you’d drop your links and titles.
