.. a certain person due not liking their height/hair colour/ weight.
I hear this loads of times, I find this hard to believe though as you can change many things about you but not your race. My male friend said this to me so I asked him "If you saw a hot ginger girl would you date her", he said yes. Then I asked "If you saw a hot black girl would you date her" he said probably no.
Yet he says he doesn't like gingers or blacks. What's going on?
*Sorry title screwed up. I meant is saying you don't want to date someone based on their race the same as not dating someone due to other factors such as hair colour?
I'm not a fan of black girls myself but then again it's not a huge problem since blacks are only 2% of the population so I'm only ruling myself out of 1% of Britain's population.Some are nice looking but it's just some of the attitudes and mannerisms portrayed over here and in the Americas are off-putting. This is from my own experience
It's quite different. You can change your hair colour and weight if you want to.
So it's not the colour it's the sterotype associated with it?
To be honest I put race in the same category as hair colour etc. It's just another factor of appearance, it's not your fault if you don't like someone because they look a certain way or are a certain colour.
And before someone replies back with "oooh, racism!!!11", I'm only talking about pure appearance i.e. people of African ancestry tend to have bigger noses etc. If you don't want to date someone purely because of their ethnic background then that is wrong.
Most people have racial preferences when it comes to dating. They just don't like to admit it.
There's nothing wrong with even the most odd criteria that someone might have for dating someone, because choosing people to date isn't a matter of unfair discrimination, it's a matter of personal preference. Everyone has a right not to be unfairly discriminated against, but no-one has the right to be found attractive.
