My Adam4adam experiment on Racism...


  • Jul 06, 2013 5:04 PM GMT
    I did an experiment on Adam4Adam over the past two weeks. Everyone scoffs at me when I try to prove that Adam4Adam is extremely racist in the Gainesville Florida area, but this experiment proves it. Let me start by saying that I am an art student who is a master at photoshop. Here's what I did:

    I created this false profile page:

    UF Senior looking for friends and fwb.

    22, 5'9", 151lb, 31w, Slim, Black Hair, Shaved Body, Black, Looking for Friendship, 1-on-1 Sex, 3some/ Group Sex.

    Hey guys, I'm a UF Senior looking for friends and fun. I'm a full time student and I work full time too, at one of your favorite restaurants downtown. I like to go to the movies, take road trips, cook for my friends, etc. Hit me up if you're interested!


    Casual, Out Yes, Smoke Often, Drink Often, Drugs Often,

    Versatile, 8.0" Cut, Anything Goes, HIV Negative, Prefer meeting at: Your Place.

    For the pic, I used a picture I found on the internet, a full frontal headless picture that shows a skinny twinky guy from neck to just below the penis, shaved body. I let the page run for exactly 1 week, from Friday June 21st - Friday June 28th noon to noon. Total number of messages received in that week: 3, from old HIV positive members who live in Hawthorne and Alachua cities. Then... I took the photo used, used my photoshop skills to change the coloring of the body to reflect a typical white person's body, with pinker nipples, a pinker ballsack, and the color skin of a typical tanned white person, with tan lines. I created a new profile with this wording: (You'll notice that the only thing changed is the picture and the "black" changed to "white.")

    UF Senior looking for friends and fwb.

    22, 5'9", 151lb, 31w, Slim, Black Hair, Shaved Body, White, Looking for Friendship, 1-on-1 Sex, 3some/ Group Sex.

    Versatile, 8.0" Cut, Anything Goes, HIV Negative, Prefer meeting at: Your Place.

    I let the page run for exactly 1 week, from Friday June 28th - Friday July 5th noon to noon. Total number of messages received in that week: 141, from nearly every adam4adam member in Gainesville of all colors, sizes, race, shape, age, ethnicity and the list goes on.

    I did this because I am a young white man in Gainesville, and I hear black people complain a lot about how no one ever replies to their messages or sends them any messages. I am terribly ashamed of my people. My boyfriend is black and I see right past the color and ethnicity, I love him for who he is and I have never had better sex with anyone else.

    Furthermore, all of these people replied to me although I listed smoke often, drink often, and the dreaded ANYTHING GOES. They were all ready to fuck sans condoms just because I was white. Terrible! No one has safe sex these days.

    The kids in Gainesville have forgotten how to have sex. With my boyfriend's permission, I will make it a mission to hook up with as many black guys as possible! Safely of course...

    You may be right. However, there are statistics like this one from the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/statistics/basics/ataglance.html that say the black population has the highest risk for HIV infection.

    Although these are cold facts, the idea is that race is associated with health, which implies sexual attraction. Even black people are more attracted to white people, according to your results.

    Also, your sample of people only accounts for men looking strictly for sex. And men looking only for a fling in an anonymous, quick setting, like the internet, tend to get a bit superficial; initially, "white boy" is attractive because that's the majority gay porn actors.

    The idea of sexual attraction, however, should not involve racism. One is not necessarily sexist because he's gay. He just likes having sex with men. icon_cool.gif

    Then try moving to Atlanta. I'll sit on a4a for 30 mins and easily get 10+ messages from people of all races.

    LOL. I don't think this phenomenon exists only on Adam4adam. Try it on other gay social networking sites (including here) and you'll get the same results.

    Don't you think that there would be a lot of guys who are the hunt in a particular area, especially a smaller metropolitan area like Gainesville, searching every new profile that pops up and would have noticed the two profiles were identical except for the pic and one word?

    Your whole bottom line is that people are hugely racist. Thanks for your comment.



    That's interesting. Why do you say that? People are naturally judgmental and it takes a certain sense of insight to distinguish when someone is being simply judgmental in certain context, which happens all the time, from their truly racist counterparts.

    To go on a sex hookup sight and conclude from the fact that the "white" profile got more attention says nothing about racism. What it says, most apparently, is that more people are sexually attracted to white people in that area. You can't necessarily deduce anything bad about anyone else in particular. Maybe there are just more white people in that area? Who knows?

    As a minority, I've grown up with racism so it takes a lot for me to label someone "racist." I've grown up around way too many folks who love using the word "racist" so loosely-- the same people whose first instinct is to victimize themselves when things don't go their way, instead of finding a solution

    I don't play the race card when a dude doesn't give me an equal opportunity to get in his pants. Why? Because that person owes me nothing with regard to his personal affairs

    The world isn't really as bad as it y'all make it sound.

    No. I'm convinced that there are plenty of guys out there that are so horny/creepy, that it clouds their vision and overlook the details. I see it happening here too. icon_lol.gif

    Bet the OP isn't really white either. This whole thing has disgruntled snow queen written all over it. Who else would care enough to waste two weeks on this?

    I think he is a genuine, original profile and that as time goes on, raciallychallenged will become a lifetime, valued member of these boards.

    Wait, I just realized, you did this massive (probably) government funded "study" on a pick up site used by trolls, antisocial morons and other undesirables?
    Yeah, here's some advice, racism is the least of the problems with the knobs that troll A4A.
    Lack of social skills, intelligence and health should be your first worry on A4A, regardless if those soiled pork bellies are racist or even real.

    This, except I am on the phone and can't be bothered to read it. So, maybe not this. Possibly something else.

    Says the mixed no-profile pic member who tried to conflate the lack responses of a black profile to HIV.

    And if you grown up around so much racism, how can you tell if the race card got thrown around alot.
    Try telling a straight story for once, then we'll continue.

    What if we continued by addressing the question at hand, with relevant facts? Or are your unresolved personal issues more important?

    There are so many people doing their own "experiments" on different dating sites. I just imagine scores of people with clipboards sending each other messages and noting down the results.

    Every time one of these troll threads gets posted, we take the bait. Especially the "it's not racist" crowd.

    Of course it is. If you're so vested in arguing to prove that it's not, guess what that says about you.

    Natural preferences, ROFL.
