  • According to gag you are racist if you are in a relationship with someone who is of the same race as you. It's a bunch of bullshit.

    • @fakename123: Not bitter, just honest. It's been scientifically studied, and we absolutely do have unconscious biases that we aren't aware of. And actually, I would have to argue that that mindset is indeed healthy, as being aware of the fact that you are probably unintentionally racist is a decidedly good thing. Being aware of your subconscious biases is the first step in being able to fight them and recognize them when they pop up.

    • @cipher42 fight against nature? a force of the universe? are you absolutely and utterly insane?

  • Judging by the logic of anyone who says that, then 99% of the world population is racist, considering the majority of us date with our own races.

    It's natural. People need to stop forcing interracial breeding on others.

  • That is okay to date who you want if you take it too extremes - I am straight, I only want to date girls therefore I am a homophobe.

    • I love that. A good saying (:

  • Preference is not racist, I don't know why this has become an issue. If someone prefers a certain look, how is that possibly racist? On the other hand to generalize a race is so to say "I don't date ________ because they act ____ way, or they do _________" is. But to say "I like pale skin, blue eyes and black hair" is just a preference.

  • Who says that? Cause I normally see Asians not to be super biased but more often than not I see Asians dating Asians. Rare occurances do i see Asian and another race. At least in super public display like dates etc.

  • Social justice retards want everyone in an interracial relationships, Nonwhite perverts with a "White bitch" fetish wants all white women to worship them ( some women seem just as bad).
    And people get a sick gleeful enjoyment seeing white men bashed, and nonwhite women to a certain degree.
    Some others get the same glee seeing other races of men bashed.

  • I don't think it is racist it's just typically you arnt attracted to people that arnt your race because I'm sure there is a guy somewhere out there that you would be attracted to and isn't the same race as you it's just the features you like don't generally appear in other races like say I'm into natural blondes and no one else well that narrows down my available races to pretty much caucasion

  • YES IT's RACIST.
    And It is racist because skin color shouldn't matter in the ideal situation, Does being of a specific race makes you a better / worse husband/wife? NO.
    So if you are completely excluding one race from the equation it is an unreasonable bias against that race, and thus it is racist.

  • Yes its now considered racist by many professionals if you exclude other races based on racial preferences. But it depends

    If you date your own race because of culture and religon or anything of that sort then its fine. But if you only date your own race because you find other races not as good as your own or because of stereotypes you will exclude certain ethnicities, then it is racist.

    • Don't be stupid you are born hetero or homo you choose who you date on the other hand you can't choose what you are attracted too since that is also predisposed but liking your particular race is not a predisposition it doesn't mean your racist either unless you think that other races are inferior to your own which you seem to think so when referring to human beings that are mixed as mutts

    • @Nicolás25 nah you are born and then you grow up to like a certain sex... you dont go around seeing 4 year olds fuck now do you

    • Wow that's up there in stupidity with if we came from monkeys whyare there still monkeys

      When you were four you saw attractive women on TV or in life and you felt attracted to it you were born heterosexual I feel like I say this to you all the time but dude you're username is so ironic

  • No. It's not racist at all and don't worry about these questions you read here on GAG. Racial preferences are not racism. And if you think about it, if you reject white guys because they're white is kind of racist on it's own, right?

  • It's racist if you outright say that you only date white guys because they're racially superior to guys of any other race.

    Otherwise, you're fine. Don't let people on here, especially, influence who you date. There does seem to be a trend as of late of posters claiming that it's unfair for whites to only date whites but.. They're not in the relationship. Not their call to make.

  • Because people are butt hurt that not everyone they want to date wants to date them. Since it obviously couldn't possibly be an issue with the butt hurt individual, the entire ethnic race of whatever gender isn't giving it up to them must be racist.

  • Racism = hating a race.

    Nowhere does dating someone your own race imply that unless you hang a sign on yourself that says "I hate every other race" and wear it every day.

  • I assume you mean, to only date your own race? The action itself isn't racist but the prejudices and reasonings behind it often are. You probably already know that though.

    Even if it is racist - if thats who you are then... I mean, as long as you aren't hurting anyone.

    I'm not into dating my own race, and people automatically assume I have a case of self hatred. I'm not stupid though, so I can understand why they think that and I can even concede that self-hatred is the root cause for many people to avoid their own race, but it varies from individual to individual.

    Likewise, if you were honest and intelligent about this question, you would understand that racism is involved in much of our attraction, depending on the group, person, context, etc. Your reasoning or root to your attraction may or may not be rooted in racism, and to varying extents, but you should be able to understand why that is the case for some people.

    No one can really tell you it is or isn't racist for everyone who has this preference. It very well could be for some people.

      After reading the comments, I don't get the impression that many people here, including @Asker , would know basic psychology if it smacked them it the face. Kudos for trying though lol
