    Idk what got me thinking this but all of my teachers who were Asians and from the same place as me treated me better than my peers to an extent. This was also the same for other races as in teachers from other areas preferred students from the same area. Did anyone else feel like this?

    Also would you say it's true to an extent you would favour someone of the same race/culture as you can empathise/ see more of yourself in them?

    Final question I know this is all muddled up but cba making loads of different threads is it racist if you say you don't find black people attractive?

    Hard to say. I think in high school I had two teachers who weren't white. They didn't give me good marks, but that was because I was crap at graphics and English more than anything else.

    EDIT: I also had a non-white teacher in sixth form for Physics and honestly half of the time I felt more qualified to take the class than her. I got OK marks from her but great marks in exams because of applying to do it at university so I actually tried to learn beyond what she told us.

    No it isn't racist its being honest, I mean you cant force yourself into finding someone attractive just because society will brand you as racist if you dont. Its just preferences all it is.

    I've never had a teacher or university lecturer the same race as me. Once had a guest speaker in Uni my race, but tbh she terrified me.
    I've never had teachers show my any kind of favour before either, so there's that.

    Also would you say it's true to an extent you would favour someone of the same race/culture as you can empathise/ see more of yourself in them?
    No

    Lmao @ that left field question at the end though
