    Whilst you are not necessarily wrong (I agree to an extent), I think your point is too simplistic for this topic.
    Really? Because I think the prevailing thought in this topic so far is "if you prefer a race you're a racist" which seems to be the easy-out and most simplistic option to me.

    You can only be racist if you're white.
    The Night King is South Asian though.

    Did you just assume his race and ethnicity???

    No I wasn't. I was replying to someone else who enquired as to whether or not being a white male has anything to do with it. Only white people can be racist. + this particular south asian needs to become detached from his oppressor since he is spreading his hostile views.

    That is the reason why it's too simplistic. One can racist and at the other end one can also be not. It's not a black and white issue that you seem to be painting.

    Are you misinterpreting me or something? My point isn't black and white in the slightest. I'm not saying it's never racist, or it's always racist, there's a million shades of grey in between, as I acknowledged in my previous post.

    I'm not stupid. I have 3 GCSE's/A-levels at grade A*/A already.
    I'm also a scholarship recipient at a top (majority white) private school.

    Hello people :-) . I am a mixture of black white and a small bit of asian, so it's pretty much impossible for me to 'stick within my own race', and I am currently engaged to an awesome white guy. Personally I don't care in the slightest about colour, I've just only found white guys attractive so far? Does this make me racist? No. I just haven't met a black or south asian or east asian or mixed race guy yet that I've found attractive. Some things are and aren't supposed to be selective. Treating people nicely shouldn't be based on their colour. People shouldn't be denied jobs or opportunities based on their colour.

    The thing with relationships is that they require more from you than just treating the person nicely; you have to actually love the person. So saying it's 'racist' to not like people with a certain look is bad because it encourages people to get into relationships with people that they don't actually care about in order to not seem 'racist', which is bad. Who you're attracted to is often based on the pheromones (scentless chemical signals) that they send off. People whose pheromones are complimentary to yours are the ones that you tend to like, so not liking certain people may be more genetic than decided.

    Basically guys, being nice to everyone regardless of ethnicity/race is expected, being attracted to everyone is not because you can't control who you're attracted to. Simple as.

    Racism is to show prejudice against other groups of people and feel you are better. By saying all white people are racist, you are showing prejudice against white people. Thus you are a racist.


    Furthermore take a moment to google Diane Abbot, who once said white people love ro play divide and rule. She’s black and thus proves that not only whites can be racist.
