Skin Privilege Comes to Niche Dating

September 12, 2008 at 12:07 pm (Dating)

Some douchebag actually wrote the following in his dating profile:

My ideal mate would be tall hopefully, brown light-skinned(RED-BONE) with all due respect but beggars can’t be choosey!lol athletic/thick but not too big/maybe even full figured woman with a good head on her shoulders

This is even worse that the profiles that, under the ethnicity of their ideal woman, list every racial/ethnic combination EXCEPT African American. 

So, he’ll bend his standards for the right kind of fatties, but not the darkies?  Charming.

    Wow, not only did he actually use the term “Redbone”, he also did that weird all-caps HYPHEN-ATED thing that makes it look like some kind of energy drink.

  2. Quiconque said,

    Congratulations, TenFeet! That was my 1000th comment!

    Such a sense of entitlement! I mean, really… beggars can’t be choosers. lol!!!111

    RED-BONE sounds like some sort of doggie treat.

    Douchebag. I have to say again, officially, I am so happy this is coming back into our American lexicon.
