Is it racist to reject someone because of their skin color?

I have a hard time knowing if it's racist for someone to say that they wouldn't date certain females/males because of their skin color. I personally see and hear this more commonly among men than women. Why would someone's skin color deter you from dating them? Are there certain color of people that you REFUSE to date and if so, why? Would that be racist in any way?

I'm just trying to understand when something goes from preference to racism. Personally, I don't think there is anything wrong with preference, just as long as it doesn't make you see one group of people higher than the other solely based off of their skin color and facial features. Also if you don't feel that you would NEVER date someone of a specific race.
