There's going to be 2 cases, the first where you're an 100% racist/bigot and you know it (the typical racist). Or the 2nd case, where you are an all around tolerant person except when it comes to who you choose to date, that does't necessarliy make you a bigot or hateful person, but that is 100 % racist. It's 'unconcious racism', in your head you've already decided that not one person in an entire race can be attractive to you. Every asian/black/white/whatever man/woman in the world no matter how much you have in common, no matter if you have the same religion, no matter if he/she attractive, intellegent, kind is not attractive to you. Think about that, you already blacklisted all of them based solely on their race, that is undeniably close minded and prejiduce. But can you be blamed and removed from the public square over this? Not really, because although it's a racist position, you aren't necessarily perpetuating racism. When these discussions arise, for the most part everyone's reactions are "oh, you can't choose who you like" or "that's just the way it is", wrong. Honestly, most people are not strong minded enough to overcome unconcious racism, these ideals come from the environment, the culture of racism, society etc. you just happened to be born in. But that is a whole nother discussion for a different time.
A white guy chiming in here, I prefer Latina's especially Mexican women. If you gave me an option of all races and nationalities of women with whom I had a chemistry with, I would choose the Mexican woman 10 times out 10. Does that make me bigoted? Racist? Narrow minded? Possibly. Do I give a shit? No because I'll live my life the way I want to and I do what pleases me, if some blue anon doesn't like it well that's not my problem.
Racism- the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
Having a preference simply means you find the culture/mannerisms/physical appearance of one or certain races preferable over other ones. It in no way means you find the others genetically inferior. Nice try, though.
I disagree. There are a lot of issues that can come up in interracial dating (mostly social issues) and I don't think it's fair to blame someone for not wanting to deal with that... Relationships are difficult enough without added pressure.
Also, everyone has a physical type so I don't think it's racist to say something like "I don't usually date Asians." It isn't much different than a guy who has a thing for redheads.
People should be able to date whoever the heck they want and there are plenty of fish in the sea to suit everyone's tastes.
People can be attracted to whoever they want to. Its not rasist to not want to date someone who features I do not find attractive. Just because I dont like features, does not mean I think an entire race is inferior or less human. Its just means that I personally do not feel attraction to certain people. I dont get wet thinking about certain people sexually. Like for real, thats like saying that im homophobic because I dont want to date another girl. Im ageist because I won't date a 80 year old. Im a fat shamer because I wouldn't date someone who is 600 pounds. I dont hate any of those people. I just dont want to fuck them. This is petty. People have waaaaay bigger fish to fry than if someone doesn't find them attractive.
Ok... Do you want to arrest them? Or rape them if they refuse you? They still have freewill to choose. Why fucking worry about what other people chooses? Its not your life. Are you just saying cos you can't get elite white oussy or dick? You sound really controlling.
You're one of those people (and God knows they're everywhere these days) who just can't get over race. Everything and anything is race-related. You see racism everywhere and you're even able to tell if someone you don't even know has "unconscious" racism. You probably see the world in terms of so-called "institutional racism" and "structural racism." All white people are probably racists, but they just don't know it. Whatever "cause" you think you're trumpeting, you don't do it any good by your ridiculous whining.
Having a racial preference doesn't necessarily mean the person has excluded every person from that race. There can just be a tendency to like certain common features or cultural aspects.
Everyone has biases based on their experiences. No one sees the world completely objectively. How realistic do you think everyone being completely objective about everything that relates to race is? For example maybe movies influence a lot of men to prefer straight hair, British accents or a damsel persona. Assuming there is some bias for preferring straight hair, it could be argued that's a subtle form of racism. Maybe that is true but those biases and influences can be said about many traits projected to people through life. I don't see how that's possible to stop. Individual subconscious influences can shape preference. When there is public outcry over racism mass public support over aspects of racism like automatic hate of a person because of their skin color or not being hired for a job because of their color.
i disagree. racism is defined as - the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
it is possible to have a preference that you are attracted to. it can be entirely not based on choice but really just a deep down thing that attracts you to something. to say that i am attracted to the artwork of Claude Monet more than the artwork of Vincent Van Gogh isn't to suggest that Money is superior or Van Gogh is inferior. it's just my personal preference in what i find more empirically attractive
My sister gets physically ill when she tries to eat Fuh (seriously - tried twice, threw up both times). Doesn't mean she hates the Vietnamese.
Preference is not prejudice. Attraction isn't a wholly conscious act to begin with, and you can't shame someone into being attracted to a person or trait they don't find attractive. All of the indignant self-righteousness in the world won't change that.
Not entirely true. It may be racist to an extent, though I can provide my examples on it. I simply do not find African Americans, Chinese or Japanese people attractive at all. I just can't do it, I have an Asian friend and have had plenty of African American friends before and yes in 7th grade ( Middleschool dating is the worst fucking thing ever, no point at all ) I dated an African American women. She was sweet and very mature as was I for being in 7th grade. I just... could not do it.
it is very racist i agree.
I think everyone one is set on what they are attracted to. For example, someone may be attracted to someone who has a great personality or someone who has a different personality from them. And then they have Pluses and Minuses. For example, someone who has blond hair and blue eyes, or someone who is European, or someone who is American (Minuses being the opposite of what was listed) These Pluses and Minuses are not always found in one person, and are not always looked for in someone, it's just an attraction. However, the biggest attention would be the base attraction (The first example). This is just my opinion. I don't believe having a preference in nationality is racist. I believe accusing someone for being racist for liking a nationality that is different than from the person sitting in front of them is racist. We cannot control who we are attracted to or how we are attracted to them. Again, that's my opinion.
LMAO Yea idgaf about what anyone calls me racist or not racist i love every race on the planet but i do prefer Latinas because they give me heart problems.
