Then again, the demographics of my clients are probably a bit skewed towards upper-middle class white people.
Money quote: The researchers found that most women speed daters said yes (meaning they’d like to see a man again after the four-minute speed date) less often to men of another race than they did to men of their own race.
“The researchers realize that their results can be depressing, but they also agree with the many readers who caution against reading too much into the preferences of online daters and speed daters. I married a black man, who I am now (17 years later) divorcing, but the point is that I think the world is FULL of potential, why limit yourself?
Yes, these daters clearly discriminate by race and height and looks and other superficial qualities, but they also temper these biases once they get to know one another.” People who are terribly picky in choosing partners online will relax their standards if they spend just three or four minutes talking to someone at a speed dating session.
“It’s how people make sense of their position in society.” Stereotyping puts people in categories and helps us explain a complex world with oversimplification.
Look at those figures: On screen, black characters use profanity 89 percent of the time, versus white characters who use profanity 17 percent of the time. During its 15-year run, the NBC show “ER” did not star a single Asian in a leading male role. An i Phone 4 Face Time commercial features three couples – all of them white men video calling either white or Asian female mates. Some notable big-screen exceptions include Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li.
“If you can come up with an example [in movies] where an Asian man is shown in a sexual role with a white woman, I’d be shocked. The 2000 blockbuster “Romeo Must Die” features Jet Li’s character who falls for Trish O’Day, the daughter of a money-dealer.
I’m a bit surprised at men’s openness to interracial dating.
While I’ve personally dated women across the racial spectrum, I’ve only had a handful of clients who ever expressed preferences for women of other races.
This post is long overdue (two years after I returned from Singapore) but I want to share my findings with you.
Three major stereotypes – that have come into being in history and have since been reinforced by popular culture – inform the perceptions of beauty in Western culture today, says The first stereotype is that black men are aggressive and hyper-masculine – “walking penises” – and Asian women are the perfect wives – docile, submissive, obedient, shy and waiting to be saved, Sharma says.
Society imposes a “male-superior norm” that a man should be taller than his partner; and blacks are on average taller than whites, who are taller than Asians, he says. I set off to answer the question, What informs our perception of beauty?
