Nothing will get you put into the “f–k buddy” file faster than demanding or taking privileges designed for someone you are not. Not even a Wes Anderson joint, but something you might see as part of a museum exhibit before you head to the dinosaur section.

Cofounded in 2013 by tech-savvy brothers Brian, 28, and Justin Gerrard, 30 and friend Jordan Kunzika, 22, a first-generation, Angolan-American, Bae grew out of a conversation that came up over a dinner for young entrepreneurs in NYC.
When the topic turned to online dating, the three began to discuss the difficulties that their peers were facing when trying to meet people on Tinder and other apps.“For many of our friends of color, particularly black men and women, the experience on mass-marketing dating apps like Tinder and Match was unfulfilling, and at times degrading,” says Justin Gerrard.
The Bae name is being retired and its users will be streamlined into Tagged and its global dating pool.“Black male daters typically had to send 10 times the number of messages as their white counterparts to receive one response and black women were fetishized for their looks and flooded with inappropriate comments.”By combining their love of technology, serious smarts (the trio boasts degrees from Dartmouth, Harvard, and the University of Virginia) and a desire to fix the problem of dating bias, Bae was launched at Howard University in April 2014.The three friends only had a 0 marketing budget but possessed plenty of faith that they’d found the answer to the specific dating woes that affected black millennial daters and those looking to meet them.We begged phone chat companies to give our visitor access to exclusive free trials and more free minutes.All you have to do is call any of the party lines using the phone number listed below and you will automatically be offered more free trial minutes.However, media images and the lack of interracial socializing have led to a situation where the distinct minority of white men can say that they truly know a Black woman.
