This isn't dating, but I did have had 2 guy friends who were ahem, prejudice and they told me "I don't like Mexicans but since you're only half you don't count." Keyword: "had"--no longer my friends, obviously
Then I had another one who said "I don't like (insert ''n'' word) or (insert slur for Hispanics) but you don't act like a (insert "n" word) or "insert slur for Hispanics) so you're ok"
But aside from that, I'd never date a guy who says "I don't like black girls but you're the exception" or "I don't like Hispanic girls but you're the exception." In fact, I don't think I'd date a guy who blatantly tells me he dislikes a whole group of women.
This exception thing could apply to anything--weight, height, socioeconomic status or maybe even personality type(introvert/extrovert)
2) Not answering my question when you have me blocked?

I have had that happen to me before too, not from women, but from male peers who seem to have a dislike for a certain race. I think people who make these exceptions try to justify their relationship with you, be it a friend or romantic interest while maintaining their standing opinion of others in general. There has even been a situation where many will say I don't want a "n" dating my daughter or sister, but when asked what if the guy was Michael Jordan, many of them made an exception.
People will be people and their views can be based on stereotypes, or bad experiences with someone of a particular race which can cause them to formulate such negative views. It's a heavy burden for any man or woman to bear, carrying the misdeed of someone else just because these people identify them as being a part of that race.
Character is key and I am inclined to believe that many do look at character before passing judgment on whether or not a person is good or bad, but there will always be that small handful who aren't clear thinkers and their opinions will formulate based on their limited capacity to see the overall picture.
Personally, if I am an exception, I may be more inclined to not date that particular woman because though her opinion of me today makes me an exception, but as soon as a misinterpretation, misunderstanding or disagreement tomorrow may very easily cause her to classify me in with the rest. It's just one headache I would choose to avoid.1
