Modern dating apps have revolutionized the way we approach relationships, but when it comes to race and dating, we’re still very much stuck in the past.

Since Tinder’s launch in 2012, millennials have tried to understand the app’s place in our sexual lives, only to conclude that “hookup culture” is largely insidious. Journalist Nancy Jo Sales best illustrates these frustrations in her recent Vanity Fair piece, “Tinder and the Dating Apocalypse.” By detailing the cavalier online-dating experiences of upwardly mobile twentysomethings, Sales paints a dysfunctional portrait of our generation’s collective love lives. What she fails to note, however, is how factors like race can have a significant impact on how millennials navigate apps that are supposed to help us find love.
