You don't get called sexist for being gay... so how is it racist for one to only be attracted to those in the same race?
Because there has to be a feature of that race that is either absent or superior to other races that you find attractive.

Why is this worst than other preferences?
Having a preference for how someone looks is fine. Thinking a person will act a certain way because they're from a different race is racist

Unrelated, but I love Oscar Wilde!
But isn't that the same with gender (as in, the way you're born)? Maybe I'm just hopelessly missing the point...

That true, I've seen guys on here say how they want a non western woman because they think she'll be quieter and treat him better and that's a stereotype. I prefer Asian guys myself but that's because of how they look, nothing to do with any notion of what I think an Asian guy is like. I just like dark haired men :sexface: I've had friends ask me "so what's it like going out with an Asian guy?" and my response is always "like going out with any guy.". The question pisses me off
Yeah, if a guy started going about those EVIL LIBERATED WESTERN FEMINISTS and how Asian wimmenz are all so nice and do as the men tell them, I would immediately pull the plug :lol: And one could definitely have a racial preference based on appearance without fetishising people (a friend of mine prefers Black guys solely because of physical attributes - no, not for that reason! )

Growing up in North London as a white male most of my friends and people I come into contact with on weekdays are non-white. There are loads of whites "available", but I prefer hanging around with non-whites for some reason. I don't actively seek out non-whites but I always end up with them haha.

The same can be applied for romance. I find I'm attracted to indian/South asian girls more so than whites. This could be because I've grown up with many non-whites as friends.

Saying this, I would like my Wife to be Christian (like me) and there aren't too many south asian/indian Christians where I'm from (perhaps tamil, but a small minority)

You're not missing the point, some people are just wilfully contrary.

It's not racist to have racial preferences. Providing you're not fetishising your partner for being "exotic" there is nothing wrong with it. Lol @ the comments
Yeah like some white women fetishing black men based on the big dxck stereotype. Now that's clearly wrong, when you're only marrying somebody because of that.

It really depends. Some races do look better than others. For example I think that white girls till the age of 23 are on average better looking. After that, they age like they're milk. By the time they're in their mid 30s, they start to look a complete mess. Beyond that however no one can touch a Dominican or a red bone black girl imo. I personally don't find Asians or orientals all that sexually/physically attractive either.

Just keepin it 100.

Lol thanks!.

Well, I think to an extent. With sexuality, you cannot help who you are attracted to.

I think people that have a certain attraction towards particular races have certain psychological reasons that they may have not realised in a lot of cases. So, in a way it is racist, but it shouldn't be equated with other and more insidious forms of it.

I know it's subjective to people, I'm just speaking from my experience.

Fair enough, I just think it tends to be more that a lot of white people don't take are of their skin rather than there being a genetic tendency to look like that

Some people are only attracted to people with dark eyes, which isn't always connected to their race.

There could be psychological elements at times, but surely not in all cases?

Sorry, but the sex offender's charter strongly prohibits interaction with anyone that refers to themselves as "alpha" or any term used to describe a breast supporting device.
