Having a racial preference...
Posted 7/25/15 , edited 7/31/15
(This is mostly in like a dating perspective btw)

I personally think they're dumb. Each race of people vary in looks (especially Asians & Africans). I find it unfortunate for people who shut down other races and only look for the ones they feel like they like.

Either way, from my experience, a lot of people like that are going off of stereotypes. :/

I can probably understand Ethnic preferences, like you're own obviously or maybe another ethnicity you're relatively familiar with.
I personally don't even have a ethnic preference, or specific preferences for appearance (like skin or hair color, body type, etc).
I've grew up & met a good variety of people in my life, maybe that's why. Every type of preference imo can look good, it really depends on the person I guess and if they can make it look good on them.

Overall, I think I have more mixed feelings on it, then just negative.
Only because I think the cultures are the reason for some racial prefences. Like Asians seem like they often prefer to be with Asians (and maybe just their own ethnicity most of the time too I think) for more cultural reasons.
I don't care/have no problem with people just following their culture.

How about you guys?

I feel it's about having people like you. I too think it's really dumb because you are closing yourself off to many more options and may not find "the one" because they weren't the skin color you were looking for. I personally don't care much about for stuff like hair color, eye color, etc.

Lmao

On topic, I'd say I have a preference though I don't stick to it. It's just a physical preference like any form of attraction. Lasting relationships may start that way, or they may not. Notice I said start though, as relationships don't last on attraction alone after all.

I have preferences and don't think it is dumb or wrong. Having a preference, as long as you don't use it to be closed off and discriminatory, is fine, if not expected. People can't force themselves to be attracted to someone, but I think it is reasonable to expect tolerance. It's true that people of any race can look good and be attractive, but this mere fact does not mean a person has no preferences or tendencies. Dating is all about impressions and image; as shallow and terrible as that may sound, with invisible qualities coming second. There are obviously a few exceptions to this but sight is the primary sense that people rely on. At the very least, looks are important for most. It's better for people to admit it than to pretend they are so thoughtful and fair. It's better to confront it directly than to sweep it under the carpet and pretend things are what they are not.

Racial preferences are neither right nor wrong. They are sort of just there, like a fleshless skeleton. There needs to be more in order to determine what's right or wrong without relying on wild speculation. Especially since people are molded by and are a product of their surroundings and upbringing. Can't really always blame them for being affected by their upbringing.

As long the other person has a good personality, likes to have fun and if she likes to have fun, then I'll date them.
Bonus, if she can burn water.

Everyone has a racial preference, its just if you let it dictate your choices, I wouldn't mind dating someone of a different race but would probably have bias towards white females

If you are going purely by looks then OF COURSE their is a racial bias. Whether you want to admit it or not, people like/dislike different things and will have preferences for hair color, size, skin color etc. which can be tied to certain races' genetics. Unless we all meet spouses/lovers/etc. through the internet with no visuals, its impossible not to have any visual bias when looking for them. Anyways, its always better not to have looks high on your priority.
