I wouldn't reject them because of their race. If I'm attracted to them what difference does it make? However if they are too religious and it'd hinder the relationship I don't think I'd be able to go on with it for very long. If they can accept my own beliefs, however, I'm okay with it. I just don't like religion being crammed down my throat.

Yes I would. Because I know certain cultures will cause a strong conflict, or require heavy sacrifices to work. Example; a muslim man and a christian woman.
Stereotypical? Yeah i know, but it's a recipee for disaster, especially if he's conservative. Or a conservative christian, and a die hard athist. That's highly unlikely to work out too.
So there are areas and situations where i see it as so unlikely to work out that it's simply not worth it, or it requires compromising in so many areas that you potentially loose your own identity and self.
This isn't racism, it's simply about being incompatible.
As for you, OP. That could be very much possible. It could be said latino chick realized that the culture of the black dude were one she did not want to get involved with (for whatever reason). The culture is a part of what you bring to the table, and it's just fair of her to take that into account when deciding if said black dude is worth chasing.
It's not dumb or stupid or racist, it's simply about knowing your preferences, and knowing what you're ok with. It's perfectly acceptable to turn down a person if you know the cultural differences will result in you two being at eachother's throats all the time, because that would have been an unhappy relationship that would've not lasted.
