Sexual Racism: Skin Colour & Sexual Preferences

Sexual racism (the sexual preference for specific races to the exclusion of others) is still quite rampant in 2020. And it has to stop!

Look, it’s okay to prefer bleach-white blondes with big tits after years of bonking in the worldly cesspool.

Or having a taste for spice and all things nice.

Or even being a “once you go black, you don’t go back” kinda person.

But to brazenly exclude a whole ethnic group from your sex life? Well, that’s just a bit racist…

And yes, it is racist!

Let’s remind ourselves what racism means:

“The belief that people’s qualities are influenced by their race and that the members of other races are not as good as the members of your own, or the resulting unfair treatment of members of other races” — Cambridge Dictionary

If you’re a [insert race here] who only prefers to sleep with your own kind because you consider it better than other races, then your racist. But that’s not the only problem here. Treating those particular races with overt contempt is also racist.

And no, race is not a preference like blonde hair or large appendages, or even youthful looks. Because all those preferences transcend race.

Also, those sizeable stereotypes about Asians and Black people are not plausible. Trust me, even I know.

And let’s not forget that beauty transcends all races too…

So the only logical explanation for not being sexually attracted to a particular race is simply based on the colour of their skin. And that’s probably got something to do with the historical racism that’s flooded ( and still floods) the western world. But that’s for another article…

As I noted before, it’s not racist if you have higher preferences for some races over others based on personal experiences and desires. And I also understand that this can change over time.

But I’ve never grown so averse to a particular race that I’ve refused their entire ethnicity from my sex life.

Grindr & Tinder Finally Get It

I have to applaud all the “dating” (aka: hookup) apps that have removed racial referencing filters this month — even going so far as to change their rules so users can’t be racist in their bios. Because sexual racism is more than just being uncultured, it’s actually a mental strain on users who are blatantly refused for the colour of their skin.

For years, Grindr and Tinder, along with a host of other hookup apps, allowed ethnic referencing. This included allowing users to put “No Blacks, No Asians” on their profile. And that’s just cruel.

I can understand if you’re drawn towards a particular race over others, but there’s no need to flat-out refuse an entire race. I mean, you wouldn’t walk into a bar with a shirt that says “No Blacks, No Asians”, would you? Not unless you’re an apathetic arsehole.

Why not just say they’re not your type and leave it at that? Or that you’re just not interested? You don’t need to tell them it’s because they’re black, just like you don’t need to say it’s because they’re fat, or because they’ve got no tits, or because they’re not muscular enough, or even because they don’t have red hair.

How bloody shallow can you get? Obviously enough to be drowning in ignorance!

Stop being a dick and get some culture in you!
