RE: Racist or not?
Yeah, I'm a racist 'cause I'm attracted to humans. Dodgy

But every time I hear that word, I just wanna punch somebody in the head. To me, it's just an ad hom thrown in the mix to distract from whatever else is going on. So, no.

You do know that yellow fever is contagious, right? It's also known as vomito negro. Attractive.

I don't consider it outright racism, but I imagine quite a few people would-and you couldn't convince them otherwise.

In the most basic sense though, it is racist. And it's a fact of life.

I think it is more of preference and not racist.

RE: Racist or not?
Some people are more visually oriented than others.

Personally, I don't have a visual type I am attracted to. I am more attracted by certain mannerisms, intelligence, general attitude, humor... and visuals rank after all these things. Not saying that I don't appreciate looking at an attractive individual, but this does not cause me to take a romantic interest. And I do find individuals of all races and genders attractive - if they are - well - attractive. Tongue

RE: Racist or not?
Is it [something]-ist to prefer certain hair colours or body types (or, shit, genders)? Not last I checked.

Having an opinion is not bad - it's inevitable!

Now, having a prejudicial opinion, and acting on it in dickish ways, that is bad. But that's not exactly news.

... this is my signature!

RE: Racist or not?
Possibly stems from unconscious racism which most people have if they were not born/raised in a multicultural environment.
even then there will be a few races that were singled out by peers for "jokes".
But as you are pondering if its racist, it means you getting as close to one can get as non racist.

Lately i find the term racist is racist, only western caucasians are accused of racism, Asians are far more racist , but to accuse them of racism is for you to be racist.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: Racist or not?
I think it depends on the person. I personally dig scrawny pale boys with tattoos and those are the ones who catch my eye and make me drool. But I've seen a handful of black men who I found very attractive as well. And none of that means that I would be compatible with those people outside of physical attraction. When I get to know someone and understand their personality, only then can I say whether or not I'm actually interested in that person or want to be involved with them. That interpersonal growth doesn't change with their looks, race included.

But for someone to say that they would never even consider dating someone of a specific race or ethnicity does strike me as somewhat racist. That's letting what's on the outside overshadow what's on the inside. I would think of someone as narrow-minded at best if they swore they would never date someone who was fat, ugly, blonde, older than them, or whatever characteristic you want to insert.

Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it- not even if I have said it- unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. - Buddha
