I'm black, and I'm attracted to white guys. The majority of the population in the country where I live is white.
Most of the people I met at school and also in college were white.
So, I think if I had more black people around me, I wouldn't be attracted to white guys.
Do you believe I'm right? Or do you think that my attraction towards them has nothing to do with the environment I'm in?
Feel free to share your thoughts and give me details, I will appreciate it.

In a way.
I mean, anyone I am attracted to is someone I've seen, so chances are they're "in my environment".
Also, if you grow up around the same type of people, it's possible you'll just become used to that, and be attracted to those types of people.
However, for example, I have never crushed on a black girl. Does this mean I would never crush on a black girl? No. I just don't have a large enough selection of black girls in my environment, so the CHANCES that I crush on a black girl are way lower than the chances I crush on a white girl.1

I'm in your situation now, and that's why I think I'm attracted to white guys. One school I went to was mostly Latino, and during that time that's mostly who I was interested in. We're comfortable around familiarity, and there's nothing wrong with that. It is dangerous, however, to be self-hating, which I'm not saying you are. I once had a black friend who thought everyone who was slightly brown was ugly and thought white people were the best. That's when there's a problem.1
