THIS QUESTION IS NOT MEANT TO DOWN ANYONE SPECIFICALLY,SO I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU COULD REFRAIN FROM USING ANY MODS NAME. I'm NOT TRYING TO OFFEND ANYONE.
***For example,i asked a question a while back concerning African Americans and Caucasians dating.The response from the MOD was that I should basically,"Date within my own race and make sure that I'm not hanging around to many black people if I want to attract a Caucasian man."She also went on to say how I should probably act and dress if I wanted this man to be attracted to me,otherwise he probably wouldn't be...in her opinion. I was livid so I responded back with valid points arguing against her opinion and she never responded back. If I was her,i probably wouldn't either because her remarks were ignorant and embarrassing.
Have you ever experienced a mod giving responses that were just tasteless or offensive?
This question may be deleted who knows,but I believe it is MORE than valid.

Though it sucks living in a racist society, the reality is a percentage of white men are racist, and they are turned off by the idea of a woman dating a person of color in the past. Thankfully, this mentality has been shrinking the last few decades, so much that the teen generation is often amazed that some people are even racist. But that doesn't exclude this is a "common notion" to those of us older folks who grew up experiencing this mentality more.
Was the Mod in question older?
I'm 35 and I would say at least 10% of the white men I know in my age group would NOT date a woman who dated a black man in her past. People older than me will have an even higher consistency of this rate. The mod could have given you this "advice" because from her experience as an older woman it's been true.
So long as she was not PERSONALLY dissing on black people and encouraging segregation then I wouldn't sweat it too badly, it could just be that she forgot to clarify that such a phenomena was one she didn't agree with.2
