I wouldn’t mind most dating preferences based on race and ethnicity if they weren’t offensive
But 99.9% of times, when people say “I don’t date men/women of x race, it’s just a preference”, their justification is rooted in harmful stereotypes
And it sucks because you wanna give them the benefit of the doubt
But then, inevitably, someone will ask them why they don’t do date that specific race, and they always reveal themselves and spew out a bunch of racist bullshit
"I only date latinas because they’re motherly by nature"
"I only date white men because they treat me better"
“I have a thing for asian women because they’re sweet and docile”
"I don’t date black women because they’re loud and don’t like intelligent men. they only like thugs"
