    Mix as in inter-racial marriage? Sure people have a right to their own preferences. On the other hand, I might question motivation if someone completely closes them off to other races in dating.

    A while back I saw something about online dating preferences where you can restrict based on race and it took the view that it was racist.
    For myself, I'm generally not attracted to black women but would I say 'no blacks' on a website? Is something else at play if someone does? Maybe.

    I was called a racist because i wouldnt date a black guy who kept hounding me at work. Before you question my motivation, i dont find black men generally very attractive at all. As well as chinese men, or japanese men, hispanic men, etc. I prefer white men.

    A while back I saw something about online dating preferences where you can restrict based on race and it took the view that it was racist.
    Then you should be forced to date a 500 lb 2 foot tall chinese woman who is 20 years older than you. Right?

    For myself, I'm generally not attracted to black women but would I say 'no blacks' on a website? Is something else at play if someone does? Maybe.
    So you beleive you dont really have a right to your own preference. Youve been brainwashed sufficiently.

Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    And this is your right. I don't find it racist at all. And I'm not a white guy. When that black guy was hassassing you you should have worn a T-shirt with the Confederate flag on it!

    On a side note Hispanic men can be white as well.

    This is a reall interesting video. The filmmaker interviewed a group of people to ask them about the definition of "racism" and to give examples of racism they have witnessed or encountered. It's really interesting.

    What i mean is, that my preference is lighter skinned guys as far as looks goes.

    true story alert:


    i used to teach, mostly high school

    i taught in two adjacent school districts, one urban, primarily black, mixed representation in terms of poverty/affluent

    the other was the suburban district i lived in, my kids were going through, i had graduated from thirty years before - mostly white, mostly double parent households, mostly modestly affluent

    a local business magazine did an annual survey of all 431 upstate new york public school districts (upstate means excluding the NYC area and Lawn Giland)

    the suburban district always scored in the top five percent

    the urban district always scored dead last

    the suburban district spent $13,600 per student per year

    the urban district spent $16,700 per student per year


    that's right - 23% more money to achieve failing results

    What is your definition of racism?
    The belief that race is classifiable by worth or ability.

    Not only that, Angel; but to be PC you have to accept other cultures as well.

    I like my culture.
    I don't want to change it or mix it.

    Same here.

    I have friends galore of other races (close friends), but I would have never dated or married them because that sort of attraction was never there.

    I don't believe racism exists because I don't believe there's more than one race.

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?
