I'm glad I didn't notice that.

I hope Glacier was making that up.

Oh yes, the entire planet is racist to some degree. I'm sure what is being said about anyone is repeated by everyone all over the globe.

I'm not sure I follow your example, but I get what you're saying. I agree. Not loving someone's faith or traditions doesn't make you racist. Yes, you might want to sleep with beautiful women of all backgrounds and still be racist. That is to say, you might want to sleep with a Muslim, but outside of your horniness, discriminate against Muslims (refusing to serve them in your restaurant, or give them poor service).

If someone's attractive then they're attractive, if they're fugly, then they're fugly, regardless of race.

Big difference between racism and preference.
People tend to date those who are in their same circle. Personally I find black men hot - and I like people who look exotic/unconventional good looks.

Is there? In most areas sure. I'm getting at the point of Great! or Gross!...I can, or I can't exchange bodily fluids with this person. If a person is totally repulsed by a particular ethnic group on most levels, they probably will be repulsed at the thought of 'exchanging...' I'm using that term because it makes a person think about what they are really doing.
Just because there is a 'ick' factor doesn't make someone a racist either...preference as you said.

Told you what exactly.. I have been with white Men just as big a dik :) Maybe stop " exchanging" and get down to business
I like all different groups, but I only like dating someone who is my height or taller, and I am nearly 6 feet tall.
Remember size doesn't matter, it is what you can do :) btw, just read men under 30 don't fancy doing oral sex with their partner

I guess I have no racism because when I was young and free I had no limitations when it came to sex. If they were willing I was. I definitely had preferences, but nothing to do with race. I also would have married someone of any nationality if it was someone I loved. I definitely had preferences in who they were for a long term relationship. Good looking by my standards, smart a definite necessity and like doing the same things I do. I've never really much about what other people thought. If they didn't/don't like it too bad. I'm here for me and mine not them as a whole. I always try to people help people of any race if I can. I got a great deal of satisfaction out of being a safety officer, first responder, firefighter and union rep. Never really worried about race.

I definitely do not like some of the actions and beliefs of people of other races but that is their right and if they don't try to force it on me then so be it. I also don't believe it is up to me to tell them what is right or wrong. They probably feel my opposing beliefs are just as bad. I will tell them I don't agree but in the end it is their right to believe what they do is right.
Consider how hard it is to change yourself and you'll understand what little chance you have of changing others.

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything, they just make the most of everything that comes their way.

I disagree, I don't see color period. You are either a good person or a bad person and pigment has zero to do with it. I don't care what color or sexual orientation or which one of the 7 billion genders you claim you are. You are either a good person or your not, just don't expect me to address you by your make believe gender. I only believe in reality so I will address you as you present your self that aside you are a good person or bad person and that is all. Just remember, you are unique, just like everybody else lol.

Racism definition is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior

It's a "preference" that i'm drawn to women who can't be in the sun long, not a conscious choice - it is what it is.
Doesn't mean if I were young again circumstances couldn't veer me off that path.- How lucky would they have been :up:

I wonder what would happen if I confronted a new Canadian who was being racist toward another newcomer and said "You don't bring that garbage to this country." Do you think that would fly? No. No, it would not.


IF I were there at the moment, and not in danger by speaking out, I would support you in doing that.

Quoted excerpt right out of the Canadian Constitution under Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, if inequality and racism is coming from the very top then it looks like the top is where the change needs to be made first!

Equality Rights

Marginal note:Equality before and under law and equal protection and benefit of law

15. (1) Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

Marginal note:Affirmative action programs

(2) Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.

Laura Inglis Wilder is now racist because it's totally unacceptable for someone born in 1867 to to grasp 2019 critical race theory!

Have these people even read her books!? This is an assault of classical literature.
