It’s not surprising that Black women are the least responded to online, considering the media and Hollywood’s glorification of European beauty.Even famous women of color like Beyonce seem to be praised because of their more European features."When you're a child you look at the world completely different."She added that her father's views are especially hurtful because her half sister on her mom's side is biracial, so the issue is personal for them."He has told me that if I ever dated a black guy that I will and would be dead to him," she said. He has called me several horrible things before." Anna said that she hadn't told her father about her prom because "he isn't really a part of anything that I do."When she got the messages, she said she felt "incredibly sad" and said she didn't see this coming, despite her dad's past comments."This just hurt more because I cannot believe how anyone can hate someone they don't even know because of their skin color," she said.She added that her mother was shocked as well."My mother was horrified and felt terrible but there isn't anything she can do," she said.Anna said she hopes her story sends a message that "we need to fight for what is right.""Racism against all races needs to end.We can be the change, and if you have a family member or anyone that 'disowns' you because of who you love or associate with then forget them, people will support you through this," she said.Buzz Feed News has reached out to Anna's father for comment.
At least six of every 10 people checked “it would be fine.” But data gathered from online dating sites illustrates a different story between what people believe and how they behave.
“According to a new UC Berkeley study of one million online daters, cyberspace is just as segregated as the real world.
When it comes to dating online, whites prefer whites, research reveals. I could be attracted to a lighter-skinned man who isn’t white. At times I’ve wished I didn’t have this preference since it would open up so many more dating options!
In the video entitled “Buzzfeed Presents: Do You Have A Racial Preference?
” research data gathered from 2.4 million heterosexual interactions on the dating app, “Are You Interested (AYI)”, shows that Black men responded most to different races, despite the fact that Black women were three times more likely to reply back.
