S2 Ep. 3: Racism in Dating | #BeSeen

So often we talk about physical features in our preferences for a potential partner. A lot of those can have racial undertones that are, frankly, a little racist. But there’s a lot that we can learn about ourselves and the healthiest way to approach dating when we aren’t caught up in appearances. In a freewheeling conversation about dating, singer/songwriter/producer Todrick Hall joins Behind the Seen to discuss our racial “preferences,” how we acquire those preferences in the first place, and why we are OK completely disregarding a different group of people as potential partners based on such inconsequential factors as race.
