    Well we certainly all have preferences, I think is song is very appropriate for this thread: AKA Frank - (my **** ain't racist)

    I won't embed it here because it might be considered inappropriate owing to the mature language sometimes used, so look at your own peril!

    So shall I say Jewish, Deutsche, English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Japanese..?
    Most of those are still nationalities

    There seems to be a massive misunderstanding of race, ethnicity and nationality here :/

    Don't really care that much. The guy I like at the minute is South Asian. I think I have fancied guys from all races at some point.

    I like girls with a "cute" look, which is something I associate with orientals, possibly partly because of the media. Though I also like curvy girls, which is more associated with black girls. So maybe white girls as a happy medium. theres plenty of girls I like from every race though.

    Mixed race is cool, which could mean you are clever, nice looking, bilingual etc..

    Boys are usually closer to their mums. Like me, I am closer to my mum. But the maturer I am, the more I admire and respect my dad. You will gradually understand how deep your dad's love is to you..
    Half greek / half english isn't mixed race, since they are both part of the white race. That's like saying someone is mixed if you are half black african / half african-american.

    Technically no?

    Both Greek and English are nationalities not races, you can have any kind of skin colour you want and be Greek/English :/

    Besides race is completely misused in this thread, it's a poor social construct used to differentiate people that has no weight in science any more. People are talking more about phenotypes and characteristics that define an individuals outward appearance.

    To me, that is what race is - a collection of similar phenotypes and characteristics.

    Most of English people are considered to be Anglo-Saxon, while Greek people are considered to be Mediterranean. Even from the perspective of looks, they are apparently different.

    As to my skin colour/tone, I have included a link which shows my skin tone in its tanned form. Taken from an old thread (Note: This is just my eyes). =l

    I look different from an East african / Somalian but I still consider them black. Also, while there are considered mediterranean, I thought they were seen as types within one group. East africans, west africans and afro-caribbean can look different but I still consider them all variations within one race.

    The only reason I put my eye colour online is because it is pretty much the only thing about myself I am comfortable with. =l
    Although, as you can see from that picture I put on here just now, that is one of my tanned times, I typically go 2-3 shades lighter.

    That is one of my darker days. =l

    EDIT:
    I am often told I come under the term "Pale", although I will let people online make up their own mind. =l

    White, and British, preferrably. :0 But I would put personality over race. But, personally, white guys are the most attractive. No shame in having a preferrence!

    How you doin'? :sexface:


    Interesting...

    On a more serious note, I'm not bothered about race, I've fancied guys of a range of ethnicities, it's never really occurred to me as something to filter people out from.
    Interesting...? Why?
