    I'm willing to bet preferences to skin colour is largely a result of living in a racist culture which shapes your preferences.
    Why? I certainly didn't grow up in an even slightly racist culture, not even a hint of it, but my preferences tend to be short brunette white women. I understand it's hard to disentangle skin colour from ethnicity etc. but it's a physical feature as much as hair colour, height, weight, etc., I see no reason one should be inherently racist whilst the others are A-Okay.

    I'm not a SJW but I will not let you be racist and spread your ignorance on a public forum. I've reported you.
    You can’t possibly be serious.

    Why’s it racist to have different preferences?

    The problem with your analysis is you have only taken one aspect of attraction (physical). A good proportion of people take on board stereotypes (e.g "black people are confrontational and aggressive") of different races before considering to date them. This can lead to discriminatory decision making both consciously and subconsciously.

    Lmao:rofl: This just gets better and better. No, but let’s just say the mods will be having a chat with you if you continue this behaviour. You can’t just report people for simply giving their opinion on a threat. And then proceeding to call them racist for no reason whatsoever.

    Oh my god! It pains me reading this forum!! Feeling attraction towards a certain race/skin colour does not make you a racist!! What so being a boy attracted to brunettes over blondes is discriminatory disgusting behaviour??? No course not!!

    Racism and ethnic discrimination is about giving a person abuse because of their race/ethnicity... feeling turned on by a particular looking human being does not make you a racist... what you feel sexually attracted to is a personal choice and not an offensive choice!

    No I absolutely agree with that, and of course "I won't date black people because they're aggressive" is a whole different ball game, but I just don't think you can label it inherently racist to prefer dating a specific race, clearly it comes down to your reasons.

    His preferences are aligned with race.
    He claimed he likes certain ethnicities but lists out the races of which he finds the majority of women not attractive.
    The races he chose were black and south asian.
    Clearly it is because of skin colour rather than anything else as the religions of these two groups never intertwine e.g Hinduism, Christianity.
    The culture of these two groups never intertwine.
    The facial structure of these two groups are also very different.
    The only reason he'll know that someone is south asian or black is by looking at their color. A whole entire race (not an ethnicity).
    The user is racist and has to be sanctioned for being such a terrible person.

    So by your logic if I prefer younger women to older women I’m ageist. Right.

    But no one has said that they've preferred brunettes over blondes.
    One user @thenightking said that he prefers WHITE girls.
    He also said that most south asians and blacks are not attractive.

    There's a difference.

    That is hardly discrimination.
    If you said "I don't find black and south asian girls attractive" in public as a white male, I could prosecute you for racism.

    What has being a white male got to do with anything?

    Also prosecute, have you gone completely bananas?

    Whilst you are not necessarily wrong (I agree to an extent), I think your point is too simplistic for this topic.
