Thanks pink snowflake downvote! 😊👌🏻
"believes that a particular race is superior" How is this the exact opposite of liking a race?
@Laureate Just because you like a race doesn't mean you think it is superior.
superiorsuːˈpɪərɪə/adjective1.higher in rank, status or quality.
@Laureate Point taken. Not the opposite but still not racist. Thanks
😂 I'm not going to say she's an awful person for having a preference, but it is based on stereotypes. Black people having bigger muscles or bigger whatever else, it isn't really true. Now saying that you're attracted to muscly men or curvy women is a valid preference because those are actual physical features
Well its exactly the definition lolIf a chinese girl asked me out on a date and i told her no i don't date Chinese women because i don't like chinese features. --> she will feel inferior to races without chinese featuresThat is exactly what the defintion means

Even if it's not an exclusive thing it's still racism (:= feeling prejudice based on race). It's like saying you have a preference for right-handed people, it's meaningless. White/black people do not necessarily have any physical features in common.
With preferring a race it's about buying into these stereotypes, but I think the majority of people would be into anyone who had the actual physical features they like regardless of race, so their imagined preference is harmless. Then there are the people who will actively refuse to date black people for the sole reason that they're black, and that's when the "preference" is really racist.
@Laureate Sure. And having a preference for a right handed person wouldn't stop you from developing a connection with a left handed personBut it seems people want to advocate that if one would never date a chinese man that the person isn't racist against a chinese person--> racism is when you project that a particular race is superipr to anotherBy telling a asisn guy i won't date you becausse i dont date Asians because i dont like Asian features is implying inferiority. Which is the exact definition of racismIts just cloaked and wrapped in a bow tie
It's actually more like a preference of star sign. That is, fucking stupid. Acting like all people of a certain race have certain qualities is - you guessed it - racist.
no. star sign is about personality traits. being black is about having black skin, and certain feature sets. racism is discrimination bound, and related to negative restrictions of rights based on their identity.ie "no black people can work in my business" or "you can't have a coffee if you aren't white".how can you be racist by having a preference for a group of people? does that make gay people sexist because they assume all boys have dicks and they have a preference for dick?
you have just given a wonderful example of the dilution of the definition though, thank you.
Do black people have certain feature sets though? Like what? Big lips, baggy pants, lots of guns?
well brown eyes for a start. just as white people are less likely to have them, genetically speaking a black person is more likely to have brown eyes. just as a white person is more likely to have thin lips. or the fat distrubution on a black girl tends to sit on the hips and ass while leaving the waist skinny.let's not try and make this something it isn't, hmm?genetics gives people certain features. some of them obvious (skin colour, facial structure) others less so (temperment, illnesses, dietary tolerances etc).and before you suggest it, no. noticing differences between you and me is not racism either. that would be treating you badly based on your race alone.
Yup, kind of what I said. Like "all Aisans are good at math."
I'm black and don't find you racist for that
Well thank you! I voted for "no"... If I said "I prefer white over black", now that would be racist, I suppose.
Again no. It's a preferance. Don't be a provoker
Don't call me names. You don't know me and whatever I have stated is MY OWN OPINION. And I have a full right to have it.
Ok. Have a nice life little ass
I wish you learn rational thinking. Take care.
What that means is that you like girls with blonde hair and blue eyes. You don't like white girls with other coloring.
I like them, but I don't love them as much
Why tell me
Don't forget the /sarcasm tag. Poe's Law.
@Curmudgeon I guess you and Nathan were right. I had hoped, somewhat naively, that the sarcasm would have been obvious. Lesson learned...
Unless you believe blacks are "superior" because of this
