Is being attracted to only one race makes you a racist?

You respect all other races. You don't think your race is superior but you are simply only attracted to those from your own race (Or some races but not all of them). It's something you can't change because you can't choose to be attracted to all races.

Strange question for a tennis forum. I've seen extraordinary beauty in all races. Good looking is good looking.

And theres no such thing as superior. Bring me a man who thinks he is superior, and I will ask him one simple question. CAN HE STOP TIME?

He will of course anwser NO. That's how I know no one is superior to me. You may be better looking and have more money, be smarter. But in the end we will all die.

Nobody can stop time or reverse it. The day someone can. Then they REALLY HAVE SOMETHING.

Of course not. Sexual attraction is not based on your higher cognitive functions. Racism is (in the sense that it is an attitude based on prejudice).

On the other hand, if you put a little pointy white hat (KKK style) on your wiener, then you will be a racist.

Yes, and there is nothing wrong with it. Just like only being attracted to one sex makes you sexist. Acknowledging differences is fine and natural.

Re: Is being attracted to only one race makes you a racist?

Maybe technically it can be considered racism as it is a discrimination based on race, but yeah as academy said there's nothing wrong with this kind of racism.

I'm curious, though, is there any race where you have never saw at least one woman you considered attractive?

But no athlete had the year Novak Djokovic had. No athlete was as consistently superb, January through November. No athlete was as complete in all the aspects of his or her game (...) the best on all surfaces: indoors and out, hardcourt, clay, and grass. No athlete, week in and week out, faced the level of competition he did: men’s professional tennis, as gets said at the start of every big televised match—because it’s true—is in a golden age. (...) And while Federer had some year (2006), he accumulated only about half the A.T.P. point total Djokovic just amassed.

This is a silly question. It doesn't make you racist. You are attracted to who you are attracted to. It's usually not a conscious effort. That's like saying unless you are bi, you are sexist.

Re: Is being attracted to only one race makes you a racist?

We'll start with some definitions.
Stereotype is making general assumptions about the members of a group irrespective of individual differences.
Prejudice is a belief of feeling of dislike for a particular group.
Discrimination occurs when this prejudice leads to actions that cause harm to those prejudiced.
Racism is a form of institutionalised discrimination that becomes perpetuated throughout society.



Given you don't harm or have a negative belief about other people based on your preference, it will not be classed as discrimination or racism. Besides, you have the right to choose who you want to be with.

Re: Is being attracted to only one race makes you a racist?

Does not make you racist because sexual preferences are for the most part not a conscious choice.

But I am quite surprised that you are only attracted to one race. I always assumed it was natural for humans to be attracted to people of all races. Makes evolutionary sense to want your offspring to benefit from healthy, diverse genes.

Of course not, being racist make you racist. If someone is only attracted to, let's say, Japanese people, it doesn't mean they're racist towards Americans or Europeans, it just means they're not physically attracted to them.
