    not really I don't really like the look of either white or black ****. I have a preference for that. And race is different from color. Black people come in many colors not just one color as you seem to want to believe.

    No body cares about your **** preference. Take one and get filled already. Life is short.

    Saying you are not attracted to black guys unless they are mixed makes no sense, that's like saying you don't like chicken unless it's fish. Mixed people exist as their own separate groups, you can tick mixed on a census or on most forms.
    that was a mistake in wording. I meant lighter skinned black men who look a specific way. My baby's dad was not mixed and he didn't look conventionally black either despite being black. I wasn't talking about only black people who were half black half white.

    not it's more a matter on genes. I don't see myself in black men therefore I don't want to be with one that say looks like draymond green. I like black men white men Hispanic men or even Asian men if they existed that look somewhat similar to me. I even like guys with long slim fingers like my own. I guess I'm a narcissist in this sense. But I mainly like men that I can see myself in.

    Racism is a hugely grey area and there are varying degrees of it. Attraction to certain races is definitely racism but its obviously not 'let's go beat that guy up cus he's different to us' racist.
    There are a huge number of factors that would play into this. Opinions from friends and family and the media seep in at a young age and slowly they form a racial prejudices, you can be naive and call it a racial preference but it really is the same thing. How many movies portray male romantic partners as black or asian? Little to none. So the public in Western countries get very little exposure to the idea of having a male romantic partner who is black or asian. This is definately the main reason why white males are at the moment the most desired partners for women. Did you know for example, Jet Li was scripted to kiss a white girl at the end of the movie Romeo Must Die but the producers changed it to a hug instead because of how the american public would not be accepting of an asian male romantic partner. So it's a much bigger almost institutional racism that's widespread and perpetuating but hidden beneath the surface. Media portrays blacks as unsuitable and asian males as desexualised, this forms public opinion, media then plays to public opinion because thats the only way they'll make money reinforcing the stereotypes and this is strengthened by the views of the people around you etc.
    However, just because you are attracted to a race it doesn't mean necessarily that you are not racist against that race. Attractions to specific races, especially in cases of asian and black women, can be fetishes. The media teaches us that asian and black women are exotic and sexualises the idea of that and only that. It turns them into sexual objects to be dominated rather than human beings. At the end of the day, we should strive to knock down these romantic prejudices but there are more important racial issues at hand.
    And also I don't really go by what society says because if I did lighter skinned black guys wouldn't be included they are seen in our society as black too... My reasoning has all to do with me tbh. And how close the guy looks to me while looking very masculine etc... Nothing to do with the media though.
