Is Love Racist: The Dating Game
46 min • Business & Technology, Society, Crime • 2017
Is using race as a filter in online dating just an acceptable preference, or does it expose us as romantic racists?
In a unique series of experiments, sociologist Emma Dabiri examines the role race plays in the world of contemporary dating. The show draws on information from a panel of volunteers, and commissioned the first poll of its kind in Britain to survey 5,000 people about their online dating behavior.
Emma uncovers whether we can truly say that a particular race is “just not my type”, or if our racial preferences in the bedroom have an impact on the decisions we make in our daily lives.
