Racism in speed dating
Those that get upset by this post should do the following: During the many social media discussions related to race, Zwarte Piet and Sylvana Simons the terms, tolerance, political correctness and nieuwe Nederlanders are often thrown about, like rubbish blowing in the wind in the Vondelpark after a barbecue.
These terms are used a lot, but are people even aware of what they actually mean?
One of my favorite songs by the late, great, David Bowie, has the line “turn and face the change ch ch changes.” I mention this because there’s a hell of a lot of changes going on in the Netherlands at the moment.
Finally, a taboo subject, racism in Dutch society, is being openly discussed in the media.
In other countries, like the United States, people have more open conversations. They get it they just don't want to acknowledge it. Yes it is because yeah someone might not want to date someone but racial characteristics always comes into play.
There was a widely held belief that uncontrollable lust threatens the purity of the nation.
Preferences don't mean you'll always reject someone of the other races. Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity.
These findings suggest that being more aware of racism in general, due to experience or education, and racism's impact had an effect on racial preference such that it was seen as less desirable.
In the online dating world, preferences appear to follow a racial hierarchy.
It's about whether racial preferences is racist or not.
In fact, not only do they aggressively deny that racism exists in this country but actually blame the accusers of being racist, as the Dutch are ‘tolerant’ and can’t possibly be to blame.“We have people from all over the world living here so there you go.
They must have an inferiority complex.”Now, this post will no doubt annoy some, but the Shallow Man is all for providing solutions to problems.
