Reading these replies reminded me of the case of Simon Mol, a man who would accuse white women of racism if they asked that he wear protection before sex. All the while he was masquerading as a human rights activist his sole intent was to spread the HIV virus among the Polish population. Yes, I don’t believe the lot of you are speaking from good faith. Very disturbing and creepy.

This blog post led with “Racism is alive and well,” based on the fact that people are more likely to date people of their own race.


I’m sure this has been pointed out somewhere in this thread already, but if not, here’s the obvious:


Racism is the practice of oppressing another person or group of people on the basis of race. Dating preferences based on race may or may not be a product of racism. In a Venn Diagram, there would be a circle representing Racists, a much larger circle representing Those Who Date Their Own Race Exclusively, and then a small overlapping area of people who are in both groups/circles.


In short, please don’t go throwing around the term racism if you don’t know what it means. It’s accurate to talk about dating based on racial preferences, but it is inaccurate to call that racism. You collected the data, but accurate analysis is just as important.
