It raised lots of complicated ethical issues that were hashed out in the press (and I could hear people talking about in cafés).
Here's an article about it in English: http://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/ask-a-jewish-p...
In any case, it might help improve society and reduce racism.
Are you analyzing the data in an exploratory manner or do you have some hypotheses that you are testing?
If you would rather discuss this privately in order to avoid tainting the data, please let me know. I will contact you.
I think this project has a lot of potential. Thank you for doing it!

Repackage, repurpose your product for businesses.
Try testing small businesses e.g. Hotels, restaurants, schools to see if they'll pay to have customers chat, ask questions or make reservations over the internet.
However, you'd need a way to bring the cost of adding a new number down for scaling purposes. You could add a routing code to each SMS to transparently share one phone number amongst multiple businesses.

I wanted to ask who the best new Black Comedians are, but I can't because I don't have a US phone.
How about "ask a blonde person"?
I've played that role.
I lived in Japan for 8 years, some of it in provincial areas. I have blond hair. You would be shocked at the number of questions I got about having blond hair. The most common one was "Can I touch your hair?"
More thoughtful ones were about hair treatment (I was told that my hair is quite fine by Japanese standards). While I didn't do anything special, and not all blond or Japanese hair is the same, there seem to be some treatments that differ based on the type of hair you have.
I am sure that my barber in Japan wished he had a Japanese version of "ask a blonde person" when I first walked in the door, because my appointment apparently caused him to stress out massively. I found this out later as my Japanese got better and I became more integrated into the community.

Having said all of that, I am not black.
