    I appreciate beauty of all races and I don't think any lesser of them outside of the dating field but I'm not attracted to some races of women. I want my kids to look similar to me and it feels like an instinctive thing, I can't help it. If I had kids with someone who had more dominant genes than me, It would feel like the end of my genes

    This is racist by definition I think, but is it okay to do so in the dating field?

    Absolutely not, as far as your preferences are concerned it's entirely your prerogative as to who you date.

    No. It is called a preference.

    but by definition it is though, i'm not dating them purely because they are of a different race. How would I argue it's okay, if I say i won't date x race of women and someone says it's racist?

    Date your sister if you want your kids to look like you.

    Your preferences are your preferences, but the whole "i want my kids to look like me" thing is weird imo but maybe that's just because I'm mixed myself

    a preference would suggest some greater liking over another race, but it's not a preference if you rule them out completely, I don't think?

    So assuming you you have dark hair and brown eyes. What if you marry a blonde woman and your kid turns out blonde and blue eyed and looks nothing like you?

    The 'I want my kids to look like me' reasoning always seems like a racist excuse to me tbh, but no, not being attracted to a race of women doesn't mean you are racist. Some people have 'types' so for example if your type is pale ginger with freckles then you are not going to find black females sexually attractive. You cannot help what physical features you are attracted to, just like you can't help what food you like.

    Well then lets take out "I want my kids to look like me". I ONLY want to reproduce with my race, is that racist?

    If the reason for that is simply that you don't find women of other races sexually attractive, therefore you know you will reproduce with one, then no, it isn't racist. Obviously if the reason you don't want to reproduce with another race is because you consider them inferior and don't approve of ethnic mixing then that would be racist.

    What if the reason is racial loyalty?

    The concept of "racial loyalty" is racist/racialist by definition really. But it's how you choose to carry yourself. If you want to live your life this way, just don't go on about it.

    How if my reason was not what kind of appearance my husband I am attracted to, but rather, the size of his genitals?

    That's just... facepalm. Why are you even asking that, is that a priority for you? I dont think anyone seriously considers that lmao

    Aren't you a lesbian if I recalled (no discriminatory intents intended)?

    I'm quite sure most of us women would think that an ideal penis would be 6-7.5 inches in length, varying of course with the size of the man.
