For C. N. Le, a sociology professor at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, ‘this is due to pervasive cultural stereotypes’ about Asian American men—that they are ‘nerdy … or not masculine enough.’ As Le explained during a WBEZ interview in 2012, these biases create a ‘cultural penalty’ in the dating world, one with quantiﬁable costs.
‘In crunching the numbers,’ Le said, ‘[researchers] found on an aggregate level, Latino men have to make something like $70,000 more than a comparable white man for a white women to be open to dating them.’ With African American men, that ﬁgure shoots up to $120,000, and for Asian men, it’s even higher: $250,000.

The Globe and MaiI's feature story on the “Wealth Paradox” is another great example of digital news storytelling, mixing video, text, infographics, and polls into one cohesive narrative.
Yes, I do work at The Globe, but I also believe these art-directed article experiments (like Snowfall) teach newsrooms how the online medium can be used to tell complex stories. The pieces force journalists to break with their traditional print or video story-telling biases, and the resulting lessons are quickly transferred to every other story they will work on.
Relevant to my work.
The gap We are not doing well. The notion that we are a fair society is, well, BS, and increasingly so since the 1980s.
