This is an uncomfortable situation in online dating rooms when people actually do not want to date Black women or Asian men. These two categories of people are often ignored when people go on an online dating platform. However, the question is why? Why do people have so clear racial biases as well as preferences when it comes to dating Asian men and Black Women?
There may be many reasons for this prevalent racial discrimination but some of them are very prominent.
Attractiveness is a very strange science which has no rules and cannot be bound by rules especially pertaining to skin color or height. However, this seems not to be the case when it comes to Asian men or Black women. As per many reasons were given by online dating participants, Asian men are often told that they do not possess the desired height which can attract women of any category.
Moreover, there is a common myth pertaining to Black women among men that they are hypersexual and masculine as compared to other women.
Thus, this racial bias practiced against Asian men and Black women in online dating platforms is prevalent due to beauty standards developed by our society and also due to the ways in which people actually socialize online.
These practices or "malpractices" actually pose problems for interracial romantic alliances.
Though the problem is severe there are certain ways through which these can be solved to some extent.
