White people prefer white people on dating apps but that could be changed, study says

Dating applications can allow users to fall into their own racial biases while searching for a partner, a new study says.

But in their study, researchers from schools like Cornell University say the “sexual racism” that plagues apps like Grindr, Tinder and Bumble can be stamped out with a few simple changes. The end goal, the study says, is to promote more diverse pairings on the dating sites.

Jevan Hutson, lead author of the study, said in a press release from Cornell University that “it’s really an unprecedented time for dating and meeting online” — which requires a more thorough look at how we can prevent discrimination on these dating apps.

“More people are using these apps, and they’re critical infrastructures that don’t get a lot of attention when it comes to bias and discrimination,” he said in the press release. “Intimacy is very private, and rightly so, but our private lives have impacts on larger socioeconomic patterns that are systemic.”

“Over the years I’ve had some pretty harrowing experiences,” Keodara told The Guardian. “You run across these profiles that say ‘no Asians’ or ‘I’m not attracted to Asians’. Seeing that all the time is grating; it affects your self-esteem.”

Oh good grief, PC and stupidity are tireless enemies of mankind...

Yup, force white chicks to date black guys... George Orwell would be chuckling right now, he totally underestimated just how right he was.

Why don’t these professors set up a dating site and prove to everyone how successful their theories are.

How about that. Judging by all the TV commercials, I thought everyone had a mixed marriage.

We live in the world as outlined below:

Black people preferring other Black people on dating sites = Not betraying their race.

Any non-white person preferring another non-white member of their same race on dating sites = Not betraying their race.

White people preferring other White people on dating sites = RACIST!!!!! ARREST THEM AT ONCE!!!!

Everyone wants to date hot people. Race is, at best, a secondary or tertiary consideration. Crap articles like this are designed to instill guilt.

Lame.

Who cares I’ll date who I want and not be told who to date to keep the world order.

It is called preference and not discrimination.

I’m 70 years old. Any of you 30 something year old women want to date me. No. Then, you are discriminating against me because of age.

DO NOT HAVE SEX ANY MORE OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE*

YOU MAY BE CALLED A "SEXUAL ASSAULTER".

* And even be careful INSIDE of marriage.
