Is it racist to feel very nervous around White guys?

I'm a shy and quiet black girl with social anxiety. I get nervous around everyone but white guys makes me extremely nervous. Growing up, i've never had a white friend before. I find white guys very intimidating and i get really scared to look at them. I've never been approach by a white guy before and if i did, i would panic. I really don't know why i'm scared of them. I also want to know how does it feels to have a white guy talk to you?

  • It's normal, I mean you didn't grow up around them. That's how I felt when I started uni, before I mostly had black, African friends, went to a predominantly black school, then I get to a place full of white faces LOL.

    It was intimidating at first, but I got over it.

  • it is racist by the part of the definition that pertains to "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race"

    it's understandable why you may feel that apprehension but it is something you should challenge yourself to overcome

      Really? And you never been approached by a white guy? Do you know why you feel this way?

    • 3mo

      Nope, i've never been approached. I think they never approached me because they're not physically attracted to me. I get called ugly by many guys, white, black, Hispanics.

  • Hey, if you want a white friend, hit me up

  • It's only racist, if you dislike them just because they're of a different color
