“Love thyself last” – William Shakespeare
There’s a particular liberal dream for the future in which racial discord will disappear due to interracial relations. Every race, so the dream goes, will inevitably mix with every other race, and in so doing, skin color (among other attributes) will blend and everyone will live in perpetual unity. Okay, that’s a bit of an exaggeration… but only a bit.
Do any racial groups actually follow Shakespeare’s advice and love themselves last? OkTrends puts this dream to the test. In a hypothetical world where all racial populations are the same in number, what would dating patterns look like? Would there be a “winner” or would things even out? The result may surprise you as they surprised me.
