How Political Correctness Fucked Us in the Ass

We’re blind to the liberal role in American bigotry.

So, back in the day (2009) I remember reading an Ok Cupid blog post about how people were racist when it came to online dating. Perhaps no big surprises there. However, when they re-evaluated the data in 2014, they they found that fewer people in 2014 directly admitted to having racial preferences, but when it came to their messaging history, people’s behaviors in 2014 were just as racist (or even a little worse) than they were in 2009. Effectively, fewer people now claim to be racist, but the same number actually are.
