No not at all racist. Sexual attraction or preference for partners has nothing to do with racism. Racism is such a contentious and difficult topic to discuss. It invokes such passion in both sides of the spectrum. So someone who you are reject from your preferences to date would say you are racists simply because you make them feel rejected. However those who don't suffer from being judgmental about colour race or religion like myself. So I'm impartial I think it's simply you stating your sexual preference.
It's your preference, I don't want to date women of my own race does that make racist against my own race? White women just don't do it for me and I get sick of seeing them rammed down my face in the media. It's my preference and if someone doesn't like it, that's their problem and not mine.
It's only racist if you're basing the decision on their race. But if you just know you're not attracted to a certain race then it's not racist. It might come across as racist though, since you're using it as a prerequisite.
If you met some Indian or Middle Eastern guys and turned each of them down after knowing them, that would not be racist. Stating in advance that you don't want to date any guys from a group because of their origin is racist. Stating in advance that you don't want to date guys from a group because of their religion is not racist. See the difference? Not all Indian or Middle Eastern guys are Muslim or Hindu or behave according to traditions.
It's just a preference, like anything else. Saying that you're racist if you don't like indians/asians/europeans or whatever is like a rapist saying "I'm going to have sex with you. If you don't like it, you obviously don't like to have sex".
Racism is to value a person by its race. Sex appeal and friendship are different things and because of many aspects we have a selective sexual taste. There are people who can attract you the most but you don't want to be friends with and vice versa.
First of all sorry for my bad English I am still learning. You are not racist only not attracted to middle eastern guys and indians. As a middle eastern guy I agree with you. Middle eastern guys doesn't look good.
Prejudice maybe, but not racist. Kinda crazy to say you wouldn't find not one Indian guy attractive, ya know like as if you met every Indian guy and they just don't do it for you. Because they all definitely don't look the same. You probably just don't like their darker skin and whatever other features they have that make them Indian.
its not racist in the slightest if you are not basing it on racial generalisations but more on what you find attractive. eg i find girls with small breasts very attractive, does this make me a tittist?
Well I can see why you would rather not be part of that culture, so I voted No.
I prefer Asians, will date whites and some latinas, won't date black girls.
This is because of what attracts me, it's not racism, just natural sexual attraction. If I'm not sexually attracted to a girl of course I wouldn't date her, I'd just have her as a friend. Nothing wrong with it.
We all have our individual preferences, plus there are cultural considerations.
No it's nor racist and it is your preference. You're attracted to what you're attracted to whether it's black, white, Hispanics, Idian, Asian, or all of the above.
You're racist if you look down apon people of that color, if you think you're better than them, if you mistreat them, or say stereotypical things about them. Not finding them attractive is a whole other ball game.
It's like saying you're racist if you like apples over oranges... It's just your preference and you're free to like whatever you like.
nope, u have ur preferences and that should be respected. the fact that ur open to friendship should make it obvious to those guys that u aren't a racist. if u were, u wouldn't bother talking to them at all.
Yes it's racist. Can I ask what the issue is? You can't rule out an entire group of people, unless maybe if you're doing it because of religious conflict. If you're attracted to the person and have similar beliefs and values. They make you happy, then what's the problem. If a guy was perfect for you in every aspect and he happened to be Indian or middle eastern, you wouldn't date him?
I think that you are entitled to how you feel. I personally have certain races that I am not attracted to. I would suggest just telling someone "thanks, but I'm not interested." Rather than telling them that it's because of their race. I imagine it would only serve to make someone feel bad.
That has nothing to do with racism, they are just not your racial preference.
Racism is defined as "prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior" - so if you just don't wanna date someone because they're not your type or you can't relate to their culture, I don't see how that makes you racist as it really doesn't. :P
It really depends on why. You can have a preference, no biggie. But if your preference is rooted in negative stereotypes then it is wrong. I encourage people, to evaluate a little deeper why a certain group is a no. Do you not like darker hair/darker skin? Do you think these men are going to treat you a certain way you don't approve of? Do you think you don't have stuff in common with them?
Some of the reasons are prejudicial, some are not. So just think about it a bit.
Personally, I find those guys attractive, and get along with many, but I don't think of them as serious partners. Most south Asian and middle eastern men I have known may date around, they tend to only want to get serious with people in their own ethnic group. At this stage I am looking for something more serious and long term. So if we didn't matchup in this way, it would be a waste of time. But if they showed they were willing to get serious and we were a match, I would be game.
Hmm.. prejudice? You are discriminating though. You're saying that you don't want to date someone just because they are a certain race. Not giving them a chance and ruling them out just based on race. Doesn't sound too good does it?
so you don't even consider that you can meet an indian guy who you will be sexually attracted to? and what if you meet him, would you refuse your sexual feelings because he is indian? you never know... if you refuse him, despitie being sexually attracted to him, Because he is indian-yes that's Racist.
