Online dating services allow users to become "members" by creating a profile and uploading personal information including (but not limited to) age, gender, sexual orientation, location, and appearance.Most services also encourage members to add photos or videos to their profile.Alas, even in a medium filled with people seeking to meet, black women are still having a hard time connecting.“I don’t think that we should take these statistics too seriously,” Ama Yawson, co-founder of Love Essence.com, told the Grio.Joyner wrote that not only did Smiley and West “set the tone” for people like Halperin to blatantly disrespect President Obama, they “must take the blame for creating a climate that would make a white professional journalist feel comfortable verbally and vulgarly attacking the first black president of the United States.”Joyner wrote that while he was appalled by Halperin’s statements, he had no expectations for him like he did for Smiley and West. Did Smiley and West’s comments make it possible for the Halperins of this country to disrespect the president or is he trying to stifle black people from speaking out against President Obama simply because he’s black too?
Some expect trust to grow as tech and regulatory changes arise; others think it will worsen or maybe change entirely.
With such a high percentage of users, one would think that online dating would be a good answer to what I like to call the “Black Female Thunderbolt Phenomenon” (the belief that black women are more likely to get struck by lightning than to ever marry).
Yet even in web waters teeming with dating prospects, black women are still getting the short end of the stick.
Our great quality assurance and customer service means all you have to worry about is looking good in your photo.
