I think that statement is part of racist conditioning. I have heard white people say the same thing about black people - that they smell different, or funny, or strange. I think someone saying that a certain race turns them off because of how they smell is like equating that with garbage or something not as clean or as human as they are. It's different than being turned off by someone's cologne or garlic breath.
