So, do you believe people have the right to deny dating [insert race] people because they have a racial prejudice towards that particular group? If so, why? and if not, why not? There's a lot of talk recently about people and their dating preferences, whether or not they are racist. But does that question really matter if people, at the end of the day, have a right to be racist when it comes to selecting their future partner? Is it really the same thing as having racially motivated hiring practises in a buisness environment?

Ultimately, no matter how much we dislike it, people are allowed to have preferences regardless of the reason. Is it right? Not necessarily, but would you want to be with somebody who had racial prejudice against you? We also can't remove somebody's basic human rights to pick a partner that they like, no matter how much we don't like their reasoning, they have to right to date who they choose and reject who they choose.19

Your choices only represent two possibilities and there are others which do not involve prejudices or stereotypes. If a Caucasian man does not want to date an Oriental woman because he is not attracted to Oriental women, that doe not make him racist. That man is capable of treating Oriental women with dignity and respect and affording them equal rights. To conclude that a person is racist simply because they are not attracted to a particular race is an overuse of the term and it makes race relations more difficult; it is simply looking for an opportunity to play the race card.
