I felt very gratified and consensually validated by this recent NY Times article about online dating. Racist, materialistic dating patterns abound! (Yes. I already knew that, but it was still wonderful to see it publicly stated by people with several letters after their names). Please see the “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” section of the article…
I wish I could send a copy of this article to “Stacy” the racist bitch I had the misfortune of meeting via “It’s Just Lunch” @ Puttanesca in NYC on September 3rd of 2009.
Basically, if you don’t have the wealth of Tiger Woods and you’re a minority male interested in dating white women, you’re likely to be out of luck.
Although I myself am of mixed race, with a white father, my experience with Stacy was almost like the one in this video:
Stacy is probably a relative of Amber B. , who appeared on “Bad Girls Club” in season 3 & who reveals her true feelings to a friend:
Yes. There is a LOT of undercover prejudice & racism that some only reveal in the company of their most intimate friends/family.
