I'm asking cause after an argument with family and lots of weird comments here, I'm getting the idea that its a bad thing, almost sinful, to prefer to date outside of my race. I did ask if it was bad that I prefer not to date dark skinned women and people are just assuming that also means I talk down to/about dark skinned women. However I don't and never have in my life, unless I'm with family and we BSing around. I've never talked down to a dark skinned women just because of that, and about dark skinned women because of my preference. People also want to assume that I must be "brain-washed by media" into thinking fair skinned women are better. To be specific in my life, I'm attracted to light-skinned black women, Hispanics, and white women. Also, I was raised around black people and taught that I should date within my race ONLY. Raised by an older generation who met my ex, who happened to be a ginger, and gave me complete hell on earth about that. Not that she was ginger, but cause she was white. Now I may date a light-skinned black female, lighter than me is ideal, but I just prefer dating outside my race cause I'm like that. So I will say this one more time: I'm not the type to talk down to/about darker women, yet everyone assume that for reasons beyond my understanding. I don't look down on darker women, they're just not my type. I have no issues with darker women and I might even find one attractive, who knows? But can someone tell me why its such a big deal, in 2015, that I'm a black guy that just prefers to not be with black women?
