Having racial preferences is nothing new, nor is it scandalous. Having a racial preference of your partner might simply mean you find that particular race more attractive or it is simply the only race you have ever been actively exposed to.
Mixed racials, despite being raised in equal measure by black and white parents, had to admit that they grew up socially as white and that they had never been with a black guy.
Equally biracial men had to admit to actively avoiding black girls. No white teenage boy wanted to be known as the guy with the black girlfriend.
Categorically ruling people out for anything, be it professional, social or sexual is discrimination in the purest sense of the word.
The fact that 80% of the online dating contacts initiated by whites were to other whites.
With only 3% going to blacks (both men and women, young and old) this is problematic.
And symptomatic of a Society who has not shed racial stereotypes as well as it thinks it has.
Women strongly discriminate on the basis of race.
White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else.
Asian and Hispanic women prefer white men even more exclusively.
90% of white women prefer not to date East Indians, Middle Easterners, Asians, and Blacks.
White women who describe themselves as slim, slender, athletic, fit or average are 7 times as likely to exclude black men.
