White men seldom choose black women as marriage partners. Slatton uses innovative internet research methods to reveal candid prejudices about relationship partners in a book that thoroughly refutes that popular ideology of a color-blind or post racial America. Slatton examines the '¬Sdeep frame'¬ of white men found in opinions and emotional reactions to black women and their body types, personalities, behaviors, and styles of speech. Their internet responses to questionnaires shows how they treat as common sense racialized, gendered, and classed versions of black women as unwanted, unattractive, black females with unbridled sexuality and illegitimate relationship status. The internet acts as a backstage setting, allowing white men to anonymously express raw feelings about race and sexuality without the fear of reprimand.
