Oh, the joys of targeted marketing. NOT!
Here's what I had in my inbox this morning:
It's not that I'm opposed to the person of color. In fact there are several "Black" men (it's ok to refer to them that way if the ad does, right?) that I find wildly attractive. Sterling Sharp, Blair Underwood, Taye Diggs. All very, very yummy. But I digress...
I think we all know that my tastes run more to the Brown than the Black.
As a reminder, here's what I look like:
Yes, those are freckles. And blue eyes. Oh yeah, and I've been married for 11 years. To a Mexican.
You'll see if you look closely enough, that there is an "opt out" option at the bottom of the email, and I've tried to exercise that option several times.
So, I tried a different approach today. Since the email at least appears to come from a human's email address, I emailed him back a picture of me. And one of my Mexican husband. And asked him nicely to include us both in his database of singles if he thought we would be a fit for his service. Otherwise, would he kindly remove my address from his system? I'm really, truly, not interested. Unless of course, Taye Diggs is on there and wouldn't mind a dalliance with a 40-something married white chick
I'm now taking bets on whether or not I'll get another email from our friends at BlackPeopleMeet.com.
