At the outset, Asian men are far fewer in numbers than black or Latino men, which restricts their exposure, availability and access to white women.They are also culturally alien to white women in a way that black or Latino men are not.While apathy and animosity toward Muslim men can be explained away, however imprecisely, given the political environment in the U. since the 9/11 terror attacks, religion seems to play curious, even if inconsistent and often contradictory, role in social relationships.For instance, there are many instances of Jewish men marrying Hindu and Buddhist women, but quite inexplicably the same cannot be said about Jewish women opting for Hindu or Buddhist men.The algorithm-based sites of the early 2000s now look obsolete, and for millions, dating has been boiled down to one essential question: “Is this person hot?”But, in drastically streamlining the attraction process, and entirely by accident, Tinder became the skeleton key to unlocking data on racism in America.It was a year later when OKCupid founder Christian Rudder published , a book which collects illustrated data visualizations with stats from OKC user profiles.The book offers incredible insight into topics like our habits, our political beliefs, our speech patterns — and the assumptions many people still make about entire populations.
By distilling dates down to a profile picture and a swipe, Tinder encourages users to act on their knee-jerk reactions, and that lightning fast process lights up corners of our minds we haven’t fully grappled with as a society.
Yeah, white women can think they’re better than their Asian husbands too.
I can name a few of these kinds of couples and I’ll bet you can too. Just check yourself before you start making assumptions and thinking you’re superior to everyone else.
Barring a small community of Chinese and Japanese immigrants in the Pacific North East, Asian migration is relatively new -- most of it taking place since the repeal of racist exclusionary laws in the 1960s.
On the other hand, blacks and Latinos were part of the turbulent American history from the very outset, and hence have a history of social relationships with European Americans.
