It’s almost an overworn joke to notice how many white guys tell you that (sorry!) they aren’t into black women, or how many gay guys will include “No Asians” in their profiles. (I think I’ve read like 18 Huffington Post pieces alone about that last anecdote.) This is real racism, blatant and banal, casual and even comfortable. For those who say that “people have their preferences,” I would simply ask them whether it’s worth broadcasting them simply to prevent the appearance of a picture of a black woman or an Asian man in your inbox.
I thought, this is a really logical thing. This should exist. People with mental illness tend to band together. It’s kind of an unsympathetic world.
