"I don't think that this is going to be fixed without someone doing something like that, specifically starting a dating app or a dating company addressing it."Rudder is less optimistic.

' It's different from a male to female perspective."It feels a bit simplistic to conclude that men racially profile more openly than women based on a handful of interviews, and, indeed, Tessler confirms that.
