I told my friend (girl, half black) that I don't see myself dating someone who is of African descent. This is mostly just preference, apparently that makes me racist. She flips out and keeps making comments mentioning how racist I am. This pisses me off to no end. I told her its like me trying to pick out fruit, I like watermelons, but I would pick strawberries over that any day.

Sure you could make the argument, "what if you find that perfect girl who's black?"

Then I would date her, but I haven't met said person yet.

so am I racist?

Not at all. I dont find the majority of black girls attractive either, and I don't feel consciously racist.

This.

Now, every so often, I come across a very attractive black girl..but for the most part, just not my taste. And if my personal preference in that matter makes me racist? Haha. Too bad.

I guess her argument is that she's half black and I don't find her attractive (she likes me but that is a huge NO due to many circumstances). So she probably says that out of frustration.

And it doesnt even have to do with skin color. Black girls prefer to have GIANT asses, I personally dont find that attractive.

It sounds kinda racist in that you're sorta excluding an entire people from potential future romantic escapades based on the color of their skin, but it's not necessarily a conscious form of racism.

I really don't have a preference when it comes to skin color and women because there are so many more things that are important than skin color when it comes to attraction. Wonderful women and complete bitches come in all shapes, sizes and colors.

I'm pretty sure generalizing a specific racial group based on the features of a small proportion of that group is closer to being racist than the dude's issue of racial preference in women.

Wait, she called you a racist AND THEN you talked about watermelons?

Anyways, I don't think generally finding black girls unattractive to mean you're a racist, unless, that is, you find them unattractive because you think you're superior to them based on the color of their skin. I think racism is overused and undermines actual instances of racism. However, on the other hand, I can see it being offensive and would avoid talking about it in polite company.

I don't think it makes you racist, but regardless, to avoid future conflicts, I would suggest that you just tell people what you're most attracted to, instead.

If I was talking to some girl who told me that she couldn't see herself dating someone of my ethnicity/race, I wouldn't call her racist, but I would probably be a little put off. I might feel targeted. Alternatively, it would be nicer if she told me what she desired most, so that she gives the message that she's looking for something else and not the message that she doesn't want me.

Just tell people what you want, not what you don't want. This might still make the person feel uncomfortable, but I imagine it would be less likely to be taken offensively.

I think it's the tendency to associate an individual's level of attractivess with the color of their skin in the first place that denotes racism...

Well you're certainly discriminating on racial grounds. But is that really something you think is wrong? And if it is, and you still think your actions are okay, maybe you should think it is less wrong in future.

As I see it, no-one has a right to your affections. Racism is only a concern to me when it affects a right. All the rest of the time you can be as racist as you please. Ya' know? Next they'll be saying that people who don't want to get arse fucked are sexist because they're excluding gay people from sexual relationships with them. You've got to start staking out a territory around your own preferences somewhere.
