Apparently if you are one of the many people with a racial "preference" that " preference " is actually racist. There is a new STUDY which explored that and I'm interest in what the community has to say. Especially those mwith "racial preferences" who claim to be not racist

A racial preference doesn't equate to being racist. If you have a racial preference you just happen to be attracted to certain races more so than others but it doesn't mean you wouldn't date outside of that preference. If you're exclusively dating for race then yes that is racist, but there's a difference between a preference in which your options are still kept open vs. exclusivity.3

I just had responded to a topic like this in another thread about racial preference and my comment was that racial preference in itself is not wrong, but being racially exclusive is pretty racist
Racial Preference = "I prefer to date Latina/Black women, but just because I prefer them doesn't mean I'll turn down a cute White or Asian girl."
Racial Exclusive (racist) = "I will never ever ever date a White or Asian girl because they are all ugly".
The study that you are referring to is about the racism in gays/bisexuals. After reading through the study, it seems pretty valid. The study did show that there is a correlation between being racially exclusive and having general racist tendencies (such as believing in racial stereotypes). That correlation in itself is pretty rock solid. I don't even think I could argue against it, even if I wanted to.
Also here your link but this one is from a blog.
