Is interracial dating common in the uk
Using statistics collated from a survey about dating habits, as well as conducting social experiments on a group of young singletons, the show confirmed that the odds were stacked in favor of white people in the dating game.
More than a third of white people said they would never date a black person, compared to just 10 per cent of black people who wouldn’t date a white person.
Another said that he had slept with mixed race girls, but wasn’t “into mixed race girls”.
Whilst fully recognising all of these issues raised about interracial dating in the programme, I didn’t settle on the same conclusion that Dabiri seemed to, namely that having preferences is necessarily a problem.
Regardless of if you’re actually on dating apps or not, social media presents you with a world of choice where you can cherry pick your networks and get more of what you want.
Now more than ever we feel like we know what we like, and can get it at the click of a button.
It's weird because white men and women I'm almost 100% sure I have nothing in common seem to be attracted to me like talking, smiling, adding me on fb.
In the early 2000's it was nothing like that, not even close.
One guy said he liked “Asian girls because they’re more submissive”.
Why is it that the name “Mohammed” got the most negative response from a list of potential date names?
Again, time didn’t allow for this to be properly explored.
The real problem is that dating apps are inherently flawed.
They skew attraction on a superficial level, of which race is undoubtedly the most sensitive category.
Now they're showing biracial people with white partners too.
