Asian american women racism dating white women
She's an attractive, half-Chinese and half-Caucasian 24-year-old woman, who uses OKCupid.
Last week, she received what, to me, is an explicitly racist message.
She tells me that she’s noticed many men choosing to date white, skinny women who are either blonde or brunette: “Some guys want candy on their arm.
That’s partly down to a guy’s insecurity because they want approval.
If you’re from an Indian background you might prefer to date someone Indian.
For some people, dating outside their race isn’t acceptable to their family and it’s not what's been done.
When people say they’re just not attracted to a certain race, it's hard to question that.
It might have been down to a variety of reasons, but experience told her that it’s because he didn’t want to date an Indian girl - or, indeed, any girl who was radically different from himself. A new study by OKCupid suggests that such behaviour is more prevelant than ever.
The website looked at research from five years ago - which showed most people prefer to date within their own race - and compared it to current data. According to OKCupid, Asian and black men receive fewer messages than white men, while black women receive the fewest messages of all users.
They’re just making judgements based on your looks.” Is that OK?
Barnett isn’t sure – “it’s a tricky one.” Neither is Sarah, or any of my other friends.
