I’ll start this piece with an observation- I follow this chap on Facebook and have noticed something rather odd (subliminal) about his videos. I first came across his viral video on what it’s like to have an Indian girlfriend.
Whenever he needs a platonic girl friend she’s usually black or brown. Whenever it’s a girl or romantic interest she’s blonde (unless it’s a video about specifically having an ethnic girlfriend).
The default romantic interest is blonde while a black(ish) woman is the *friend.* I’m assuming Markian has some sort of Armenian ancestry.
Another video is “16 Signs you are an Awkward Flirter”; where the romantic prospect is blonde.
Black and Brown Women
In the roommate video; he’s seen with a romantic prospect in the bedroom, who is white.
I find it interesting that younger millennials, who are so much more diverse, are in some ways so much more conservative in their dating choice.
