it’s so weird that learning about racism is totally a completely optional side quest for white people
tell them that it’s racist to write off an entire race because a race consists of millions of diverse individuals with depth and emotion like.. if the only thing stopping you from dating someone is the colour of their skin, that’s cheap and gross; it’s reducing someone to solely their race which is racist. ask them to think hard about why they don’t find that certain race attractive. we’ve been brainwashed into thinking white European features are the epitome of beauty, and that’s been drilled into us since the day we were born. we see that everywhere from Disney movies to beauty magazines to everything mainstream media feeds us. and before they can argue that “it’s only a preference!” it’s not. a preference is like preferring blond hair to dark hair or brown eyes to green eyes. you wouldn’t look at a person with brown hair and be like “ohh I can’t date that person they’re brunette!” and write them off but there are people who would look at a person of colour and immediately dismiss them and not give them a second thought BECAUSE of the colour of their skin and that. is. racist.
