Discussion: Why preferring to date one race over another makes you racist.

// December 11th, 2014 // No Comments » // Media discussion

Single gay guys who prefer one race to another aren’t “picky.” They’re racist. Here’s why, according to Jerry Plaza (RealJock, December 8, 2014).

Plaza writes that there’s a difference between a type and a generalization. “Everyone has a type. Our types are the first ones we look at in the room. Some guys prefer blondes while others prefer redheads; some guys like to look at a man’s fashion sense, i.e. hippies, skaters, or professionals; and some guys prefer taller boys over shorter ones. These are all types. A generalization is different. It’s sweeping judgment on an entire group of people based on a fantasy or stereotype.

What we need is to expose ourselves to the damage of racial preferences in the gay community. Too many people fear discussion because it’s uncomfortable.”
