If you don't date a person of a particular race because they are that race, then yes. Otherwise, it's just personal preference.

What if you just aren't attracted to a certain skin color? Is that racial discrimination or does their race just happen to feature a physical characteristic that someone doesn't find physically attractive?

AsukaAyanami, I suppose that is a possible racial discrimination. I guess that comes down to how you define the term.

Pretty sure if I said I found Lithuanian people to be ugly people would take it as being racist.


Of course if you did say that you are probably one of those people who think we use all the ice but never bring any! If this was the case I would have to hunt you down like a dog!

No.

You are only racist if you attack other people for dating or marrying outside their race.

The latter happens all too often.

Calling someone a racist because they are only attracted to a certain race is like calling a heterosexual homophobic for being straight or even a homosexual being heterophobic. All are ridiculous.


It's not homophobic/heterophobic, just sexist.

Put it this way: If you were writing letters with someone, as a friend, and just, from the way they wrote, from their personality, etc., you fell in love with them... and then you found out their race or gender wasn't what you thought it was, would that fact alone make you fall out of love with them?

Most people who would answer "yes" would probably say "that category of person could never have the sort of personality that I'd fall in love with". Making that assumption is sexist or racist.

But being more attracted to certain physical features over others isn't sexist or racist... I dunno, this is why I don't believe in monogamy. With monogamy, if you're dating a woman, you can never experience a man, and vice versa. If you're dating a tall person, you can never experience a short person, and vice versa. That just seems really confining to me.

Basically, if everyone would just be pansexual and polyamorous, all the world's problems would go away...

I've never done that but must admit i sort of did to a beautiful white blue eyed blonde hared Aussie girl that converted to Islam and started wearing a hijab...
I consider her to be a submissive traitor. Even though i acknowledge that its her life her choice. I never attacked her in any shape or form though. I didn't go to her birthday though, it was at a Muslim place(i never said that was why i just said i couldn't make it).
The hijab wearing profile pic was bad enough but then the cringe worthy video justifying the burqa was too much. So i simply deleted he from Facebook.

But yeah i dont have a problem with people dating outside the race, i think it was the converting to Islam that bothered me. Iam glad she quit drugs and drinking and etc but you dont have to convert your religion to make healthy changes in your life.

I guess thinking about it now, i dont particularly love seeing white girls with guys of other races. And yet i have no issues with white guys being with girls of other races. Funny that hey.
I think we're all like that though, like i think most Italian and Greek families and many Asian families , they're parents are pretty strict and dont let their girls marry outside of the race. Iam not talking about Asian girls from 3rd countries. Their families want them to be with white men.
And if a Muslim man gets with a non Muslim girl she is expected to convert, so thats religious, not racial.
But yeah iam pretty sure it pisses black guys off to see a Nubian queen with a white boy and i remember one time i was hanging out with a bunch of my Asian work mates and we were eating at a restaurant, an absolutely gorgeous Asian girl worked there and her white boy boyfriend rocked up and all the Asian guys were pissed off lol.
I wouldn't call that racist though.

Not at all it's just a preference. I used to have yellow fever for the longest time until I took care of the problem and now I lean more toward my own race, ethnicity or whatever you eant to call it. I'm all about those spicy latinas right now but I'd never not go out with Simone depending on race; at the point you only consider one race and no other is when you might be racist?

If you are specifically saying "i don't want to date this certain race because of x,y,z..." then yes it is racist. Don't look at attraction that way?? Maybe there's something specific that is common in people of that race that you also don't find attractive in other races, though of course you have to remember that then becomes a generalization or a stereotype if you apply it to all people of that race (and therefore is also a form of racism).
