Him: I don’t date black women. It’s just a preference.
Me: Based on what?
Him: Nothing, it’s just how I feel.
Me: Impossible, deliberate aversions come from somewhere.
Him: Its just a preference, that’s all.
Me: No, a preference is preferring broccoli to asparagus. You can say that because asparagus will always taste the same, even when prepared differently.
Me: And we’re not always the same at all. There are hundreds of millions of us and we’re each completely different from the next. If an employer said not hiring Black people was a preference would you agree?
Him: No, but that’s based on stereotypes.
Me: … And what is yours based on, facts?
This conversation is stupid. You are trying to make him sound like a racist. Like he’s racist just because he’s not attracted to black women so you compared it to someone not wanting to hire black people for a job. Fuck you. (via nocturnal-flare)
Sorry to break it to you nocturnal-flare but this argument is valid for various reasons…
Preference is defended as…
1 liking, partiality, predilection, proclivity,fondness, taste, inclination, leaning, bias,bent, penchant, predisposition.2 favorite, (first) choice, selection; cup of tea, thing, druthers.3 priority, favor, precedence, preferential treatment.
That means this dude has had to have dated a black womyn at least once to know what thats like. If he did date a black womyn and didn’t enjoy that experience, that’s based on that particular womyn. Her skin tone has NOTHING to do with the relationship or the experience. Culture, maybe, but skin tone?
Now assuming that ALL black womyn are like this womyn you dated is stereotypic, pretty ignorant and straight out racist. There are so many types of black womyn. Their are black womyn that are Latinas, Arabic, American, Canadian, Australian, etc.
So yeah… that’s what this person meant. I hope this explanation enlightens your perspective. Peace and love and I hope you grow in understanding peoples experience <3
