Race trope fail

Thoughts on my latest visit to TV Tropes:

1. Ooh, have they changed the logo?

2. And why am I seeing ads? I don't usually see ads. Bad adblocker.

3. ...Aaaaand WTF? The ads on the main Race Tropes page, which talks about racist stereotypes and exoticisation, say "Asian girls for love & marriage". Well done there, Google AdWords. I suppose it's nice that you're illustrating the point.

(Mind you, it can work the other way - if I'm reading my forums while logged out, it's amusing to note that homophobic threads always attract ads for gay dating sites, and anti-Muslim threads attract ads for saris, usually.)

Yeah, I did think that - though I didn't know the details, and probably wouldn't recognise a salwar kameez - so I'm not quite sure where they get the connection from!
