You’re racist if you don’t sleep with people outside your race, a study claims.
In the study entitled “Is Sexual Racism Really Racism,” researchers with the University of New South Wales assert that having racial preferences when it comes to sex is “sexual racism.”
“In fact, men who used online dating services more frequently were generally more likely to register as racist…,” feminist Samantha Allen wrote in an article about the study. “Sex researchers Denton Callander, Christy Newman, and Martin Holt asked over 2,000 gay and bisexual Australian men how they felt about race and dating through an online survey; these men also completed a region-specific version of the Quick Discrimination Index (QDI), a standard survey instrument that measures attitudes on race and diversity.”
“After putting these two data sets together, the trend was clear: ‘Sexual racism… is closely associated with generic racist attitudes, which challenges the idea of racial attraction as solely a matter of personal preference.'”
