Which means that in the eyes of others, the color of the women I date is a big deal. Like I’m betraying my people if I date white women. I see people watching me with a stink eye, noses turned up, as if they think black and brown people would somehow be better off if I dumped my white girlfriend. Along with each watchful eye, the whispers of, “Pick a side, Chris, pick a side,” fill my already noisy mind. Yes, the black body has done more for society than it has gotten in return. How do I love as a brown body in the world in a way that makes everybody happy?

I started reading James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates and other black and brown authors looking for guidance, a road map, help on what it means to be a brown man in the world. Yes, society seems to want to embrace a lot of things associated with blackness without actually being black. If everyone is so woke, why are things so terrible? I fell for a white woman and she fell for me — simple as that — yet I feel as if I’m doing the wrong thing by dating her. Do white women find me attractive or do they see me as some exotic idea they should find attractive?

I can’t imagine they will: multi-million dollar enterprises rarely like to admit that the people paying them those millions act like turds. That is, more compatibility generally means more replies. As you can see, in general, the better you match someone, the more likely you are to reply to a first message from them.

Here are the match and reply rates side-by-side, with similar rates colored yellow.

There’s no real need to inspect the numbers; just observe the similar colors. In general, the correlation between match percentage and reply rate means that whenever we compare the match/reply charts for a given breakdown of the population, they should look about the same.

It’s because in today’s hashtag-woke society, there is mad pressure to be hashtag-woke.

To be aware of the implications of whom you’re attracted to and why.
