Since this topic comes up once a week on here: Is having a racial preference in dating racist? (1) it is, (2) it may not be your fault, you could have been conditioned by society to view one race as attractive, (3) no it’s not the same as gender preference, (4) yes this damages our community, basic emotional intelligence would let you realize this, and (5) pick up your phone and Google instead of asking here over and over. There is a wealth of research and history behind this topic.
