I only like the white ones.
It's pretty blatantly racism.

I could see wanting to date people who understand your culture, but to write off an entire race for looks? Despite never seeing every member of that race? Or to automatically attach negative traits to a whole race to justify your "preference"?

Preference: I'm sensitive to scent; it's what turns me on. Each race has their own characteristic odor (might have something to do with nutrition? idk idc) and I've only found myself falling for people my own race.
MHCs have to do with genetic compatability (greater genetic difference produces better smells), and since you're as likely to be genetically close to someone of another race as you are to your own, I doubt it.

Actually I've seen that study on tv a few years ago... The sample's DNA was tested and compared. The testing involved female clothing worn for seven days at night. They had males smelling them and rating them. I have to say from experience that even if an egyptian person's genes potentially differ more from mine than a white person's that doesn't make his smell sexually more appealing to me...

After all there's been a lot of miscegenation amongst white people.
Odds are that race won't determine that, was my point.

I know racism's coming back into vogue, but are we really using miscegenation again?


Eh, I don't consider myself racist because I've not yet felt attracted to an Italian, Egyptian or African man's scent; I can't argue with my own personal preferences for a mate now can I?
Preferences aren't innate and are shaped by other things.

Didn't you know, saying, "I'm not racist because I have black friends" means your a covert racist? But really, who isn't these days?

I personally prefer dating men of my ethnicity. I'd go out with another ethnicity assuming they didn't act completely irrational. It isn't racist if you know the difference between a black man, and a n****r. I would indeed date a black man. One who speaks proper english, not ebonics, and one who acted educated. I would not, however, date a n****r, who wore his pants down to his knees, said "********" every other word, and just acted unintelligent all the damn day.
Why is racism separated from racial preference? Aint it the same thing?

So only blacks who abide by Euro culture and Euro ideas of intelligence are people you'll date.I mean WTF that "proper English" bull gets puts a flashlight on bigoted EuroAmerican people all the tiime. rofl
The reason I've mostly dated women of my own ethnicity I think is because of availability. And there seems to be some inherent skepticism to cross-ethnic advances.

why does the latter matter at all?

It matters because I only have a certain reservoir of patience. I'm not jumping through an extra mile of hoops just because she's of another ethnicity, that's even more racist.

So basically, you're the type of girl who would rather date thugs than black guys with a sense of class and decency. All because you think they're "abiding by Euro culture?" You wouldnt say that all men should behave this way regardless of who's culture they're "abiding" by?
