 Interracial Dating, preference or fetish? ep7 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 53:38

An Asian girl, a white guy, and a black girl sit at a table. No joke, we discuss interracial relationships.  When is something a preference, and when is it a fetish? A pic posted on social media of me and a white boyfriend generated a lot of talk about Asian women dating white men and interracial dating in general. Even today there are strong feelings about this. Conversation naturally extends to racism in this country and why/how it seems worse today than it was years ago. Suspect one--social media! But it's hot just about race; it's also about sex and what we think we know about people, based on what they look like.  Guests: Ted Sullivan, writer, "Star Trek, Supergirl" Twitter handle @karterhol, and Gwen Gatti, makeup artist.
