@Helo

So you also do not believe in unconscious sexism, ageism, nationalism, cultural bias, etc.?

I mean, its cool if you don't. Hey, live and live, right? But I tend to go with the idea that a lot of our behavior is shaped by unconscious forces that, if not examined, can cause us a lot of problems in life.

But, about the racism thing...

Not sure if preference based on our own personal Imago can be considered racist, at least not reasonably. I've never been that attracted to pale, skinny women because I really like thick, curvy women with dark hair. Doesn't matter if they are thick and curvy Polynesians, Puerto Ricans, Italians, Blacks, etc. I don't think that makes me a racist, although I KNOW that I have some racist beliefs (as do we all, America!) that I have been working on...mostly towards my own race (LOL).
