The reasoning for this is simple, if somebody made White People Meet there would be an extreme backlash towards the creator of it.Black People Meet is not attempting to fan any racial flames, but the simple fact of the matter is that it is a dating site that is excluding people based on race, which while it may not be particularly harmful in this instance is still racist.While none of these particular filters are racially charged, this feature, along with Highblood's “Rise above all,” slogan, is definitely sending out some MAJOR elitist, cult-tastic vibes.Eng, however, continued to defend the app, saying, “We are not racist because science has conclusively proven that genetically…An article addressing men of color who are predominantly sexually attracted to and pursue white men in regards to sex and dating recently circulated my Facebook newsfeed.“Dear Gay Men of Color: Stop Begging Racist White Gay Men to Love You” by a blogger named The Magical Beautiful Petty Black Prince spoke to an issue I’ve been thinking about for quite some time: the ways that the conversation on racist dating standards continue to center white folks and try to appeal to and appease them.You've probably heard the term Rice King, a non-Asian guy who goes after Asian women.Or perhaps you've heard of Rice Queens, gay non-Asian men who go after Asian men. I've written about the subject of Asian men and sexual attraction in various ways over the years, beginning with my very first story for the back in 2003, a cover story about how Asian male actors were having trouble finding roles other than as brainy nerds, sexless doctors, or martial artists.
I have also come across people who for some reason only have friends that are exclusively from one race.
This is also something that doesn’t impact all people of color equally.
Depending on a variety of factors about our bodies, we’re all in different relations to whiteness.
But have you ever heard of Rice Queens being used to refer to non-Asian women who go after Asian men? While Asian straight women are one of the most fetishized dating prospects, Asian straight men, on the other hand, are the least, virtually invisible when it comes to sexy images in popular culture, even when they are on par in terms of physical attractiveness as their non-Asian equivalents.(Asian gay men fall somewhere in between, being either highly fetishized or being told "no Asians" on dating sites.
Yet activism has taken place within the Asian gay male community, such as the Sexual Racism Sux campaign or a new site for Asian gay men, launched by local Edward Ho, to share their dating experiences and other efforts.
The question remains if there is the same level of activism to address how straight Asian men have been depicted or treated.)The invisibility of attractive Asian straight men in the media remains a longstanding and unaddressed problem, particularly in Hollywood, and it does have an impact on self-esteem, relationships, and mental health.
