It was a cause for concern for Emma who found there was an 'unconscious bias' towards white people when it came to selecting a partner.'We like to think that our preferences are something that are innate and really personal and individual to each of us.'I have slept with mixed race girls but I just decided I am not into mixed race girls.'A black male participant said it was easier for him to date within the same race because 'there’s no cultural clash and no misunderstandings'.The main crux of the programme, which was broadcast on Monday night, was to demonstrate that dating apps and online sites were encouraging single people to filter based on race, and that by emphasising visual appeal it was making race a more prominent factor.He’s flaring and pouting.'Shocked viewers took to social media with one saying: 'Is Love Racist has me fuming, racism is alive and well!'One person said they had to rewind her TV to check they had heard her correctly, while others were 'irritated' and 'cringed' at the comment.'But if that is the case, why is there such an overwhelming preference towards whiteness? An eye tracking experiment, where the participants entered a room of ethically diverse people, demonstrated that Asian people are mostly overlooked while most unconsciously showed a white preference.The same results occurred when a group of models were asked to strip down to their underwear in a less scientific test to understand raw physical attraction - the overwhelming majority of people again preferred the white models.
People aged 18-24 are least likely to select a date outside their own race.
The experiments helped support data from a poll of 5,000 people conducted by Dr Keon that suggested white people were also less likely to date outside their race.
Emma explained to the participants what her purposes for the experiment were and they were all visibly stunned.'"It’s just not my type" was a filter or shorthand for racial preference.
One upset viewer also said: 'Apparently that black guy is pouting because he has full lips and his nostrils are flared??
Listen don't make me get mad.' Just 9.4 per cent of white people of 5,000 polled said they would date outside their race.
