There are many people (some on this site as well; I've been here on GaG for awhile) that seem to get SO OFFENDED when they're asked about why they abstain from dating certain races of people, EVEN IF they are attracted to the person's looks and personality.
I understand reasons such as heavy clashing of culture (raising a family, marriage, sexuality, etc.), or not finding many people attractive of a certain race. That I understand.
These people will say thing such as "i like to stick to my own kind", or "i just don't like (insert race) guys/girls", or my FAVORITE cop-out reason..."it's my preference".
To be blunt, I truly, sincerely, 100% believe, that people of both genders that have this defensive attitude of stark offense in regards to dating a person of a certain race,
are either "stuck on the social stereotypes" of that race, or truly are racist towards that group to a certain degree.
Do you agree or disagree with my viewpoint? Vote and reply as much as you like.
P.S. Feel free to guess the Pokemon! :-P

They were hoping that by saying "It's my preference" and using that to mask any hidden prejudice would be enough and they don't like being questioned; it may bring out their ignorance or make them look like a**holes.
It is racism to a certain degree. Sounding like a parrot and saying "It's my preference" and "Everybody has their preferences" doesn't change the fact that those phrases are being used to make it seem like excluding a group of people and DISCRIMINATING against them is totally fine and acceptable. Nice to see someone other than me being OPEN AND HONEST about this!4
