In this age of technology and social media, finding a date is literally at your fingertips. But it'll be a lot easier for you if those fingertips are white.

Sexual racism is something tons of people have to deal with when it comes to dating apps. Whether you're using Tinder, OkCupid,, Bumble, Grindr or even eHarmony, people have an uncanny way of showing their racist true colors.

But is it racism or just dating preferences? Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to dating; we all know that. Personally, I prefer tall men under the age of 50, with little to no belly fat. But that doesn't mean I'm going to demean a 54-year-old with a stomach the circumference of a small galaxy. 

In the realm of online dating, if you're a black woman or Asian man, the pickings are slim. Not only do you have people blatantly stating on their profiles that they're not interested in dating you, but when and if you do match with someone, the stereotypes instantly come up.

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah's Jessica Williams and Ronny Chieng apparently didn't believe that sexual racism existed. "Minorities that are having trouble getting laid are blaming their lack of game on sexual racism," Williams said skeptically.

Then they sat down with Zach Stafford, a dating expert, who said, "Most people trying to smash on online dating platforms are sexually racist." 


When Chieng hopped on the Internet dating highway, boy was he in for a rude awakening.

Take a look at the hilarious (NSFW) but truthful segment about online dating and the racism that black women and Asian men face.
