Well when I was growing up my mother said I acted like a white girl (Not on purpose) and I didn't really know any white people. I'm Spanish by the way and for some reason I always hated it and yeah lots of men like Spanish girls because of their nice body and majority of the girls that are gorgeous are usually Spanish but I guess I don't like the stereotypes that are so accurate about them and that's the same with blacks. I have lots of black friends and I'm usually attracted to black guys but I think they don't know how to act properly, they're starting to become obnoxious and I get that's because most are from the hood especially since I live in New York. I wish I was born with blonde hair and gray eyes and my nose wasn't a bit wide. I also wish my skin was a bit lighter as I'm tan skinned. I know most white people wish they were tan. I feel really embarrassed most of the time of who I am especially when I'm around them because lets face it Spanish and Blacks aren't widely accepted in society and will probably remain that way for generations to come.

so are you racist for wanting to have lighter skin, a narrower nose... essentially classically Caucasian features?
I don't think this makes you racist. I think it means that you deal with a lot of the inner turmoil a lot of minorities face. I think the problem stems from societal standards of beauty more than racism. You look in the mirror and you see "flaws" as they have been dictated to you by society since you were a child. Because you saw images on TV and in magazines that were deemed "beautiful" and more often than not those images weren't/aren't what you look like the conclusion is that somehow you're not beautiful.3
