Like for example I personally prefer black women over white women, but that doesn't mean I will never date white women, I still find white women attractive.
But what about people who go farther then preferences and say "I don't find black women attractive, I don't find Asian men attractive" etc
So for them it's a complete rejection for the entire race. Is that racist or just simply preference?
What if you truly just don't find characteristics of certain races attractive and just help help yourself?

It becomes racist when they say "I don't like black women because they have such bad attitudes" or "I don't like white women because they have no curves", etc. It becomes racist when you start attributing traits you find negative to an entire race. Which is essentially the basis for racism. It's about justifying your dislike or mistreatment through stereotypes and negative generalization. If you find a specific ethnic group phisically attractive, that's your business. But when you make your preference about all the BS stereotypes you can't stand in another race, it becomes ignorant and racist.2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

I guess it could be.
Well for me, part of it is that I just find dark skin less appealing and less feminine. I don't know why, but I just do. Im not a fan of their hair either. Those are just a visual preferences which I don't believe are racist.
The other part of it is that I admittedly have a negative perception of their personality based on stereotypes and that is probably based on racism. However, in my experience all the ones I have met seem to embody most of the stereotypes I find unappealing.
And even if racial dating preferences are "racist"to some people, who cares? Its not the like its on the same level as the"I hate black people and want them to die" kind of racism and what would be the solution anyways?
Affirmative action for dating? Like everyone has to meet a quota and date a person from each race🙈0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
