: I know that you like the song but I find the
: description that it is racist a bit
: disturbing. It's certainly un-PC though.
: If we treat race and skin colour as merely a
: physical characteristic a person have.
: Well some people prefer tall people, some
: people prefer short people, some people
: prefer blonde hair, brunettes, people with
: certain eye colour, people with more muscle,
: people with big breast, etc
: There's absolutely no reason why someone
: shouldn't allow to have a preference of skin
: colour. It's not like the song is saying
: it's wrong to like people with different
: skin colour but merely stating it's
: preference for the white skin colour in
: terms of sexual attraction.
: I mean racism is wrong because you
: arbitrarily using people skin colour to
: dislike them or exclude them from occupation
: or at the most extreme commit violence etc.
: You don't defeat racism by arbitrarily
: elevating skin colour to the level of
: importance above every other physical
: features in your body and treating it as
: some sort of sacred cow. The solution is to
: simply treat it like any other physical
: characteric a person has.
: Like Jerry Seinfeld said "If I like
: their race, how can that be racist?"
: It's really politics and cultural and
: historical connotation which has nothing to
: do with basic principles of treating race as
: equals that it could be consider offensive.
