Biracial and multiracial people, How do you date?
I'm half Puerto Rican, and I prefer to date Puerto Rican women. I look Latin, and prefer to date Latin women. I assume it's because I'm attracted to women with similar features(curly hair +hazel eyes etc. Because of my preferences, I've been called a self hater by my friends and a few family members. I strongly disagree with them. It's just my preference.
So my question to you is, is it self discrimination for a biracial person to oppose dating other parts of their ethnicity?

No not at all. Sexual attraction really hasn't got a lot to do with racism. It is about what you find attractive. Race should really not matter. So leave the labels out of it. It is about the features that attract you the most. For me I am Australian and I have Spanish heritage. I am olive skinned and have almond shaped chocolate eyes and dark hair. I don't often find blond, arian looking guys sexually attractive - I think they are nice looking but I don't have any interest in them myself. I always tend to end up with dark haired guys with brown or hazel eyes, simply because I like those features.
It is not about me dismissing the European/anglo heritage I have, it is about what I find good looking.
Those who are using the word descrimination for natural preference of sexually attractive features are kidding themselves. They themselves have preferences of what they find attractive and it has nothing to do with being racist.
I have nothing against white/arian looking men do I? I just don't often find them appealing sexually - does that make me racist? f*** no! That is like saying if you don't like Chinese food because it doesn't agree with your taste buds that you are racist to Chinese people.2
