Not sure if this is a better fit for the political forum so the powers that be can move if over there if they feel its appropriate. I don't know if I should be bothered by this at all but its always struck me as a little odd and I'm wondering if anyone feels the same way or I'm completely talking out of my arse. My dilemma is that it somewhat bothers me when I see someone state that they prefer someone of a certain race/ethnicity for a partner. I can understand say preferring someone of a certain religious conviction and similar world views but doesn't it open a whole can of worms when you use skin colour etc. to narrow down your search? I see this most often with white men and Asian women. I've talked to a couple guys about it and I've gotton responses from "I like the face" to "At least I'm racist in a positive way ." Isn't it just as weird sounding if you substitute Asian for white? "I (white man) prefer white women." I'm part of a minority group where a another certain of people (99% men) literally fetishise people like us so I just notice some similarities. Not enough to say I find it creepy, just odd and I don't quite understand it. Thoughts?
