Today, I confessed to my coworker that I'm interested in her romantically. She turned me down, saying that I'm a great guy, but that she basically doesn't want mixed-race children. She said she isn't racist, though, so I guess it's all okay, right? FML

It's super cliché and annoying but... you dodged a bullet. And mixed race babies are beautiful!

Preferences concern what we find attractive, not children we might or might not have. And even if it's a preference things, it's always kindest to say "I'm just not attracted to you".


I think he was referring to her preferences of children. Some people might not want children of mixed race and they're entitled to that opinion. Also, it isn't really racist if she doesn't want her children to look a certain way. They are, after all, her children


@#35- Good to see at least someone gets it. Nice of you to try to explain it to her, but she won't get it, no matter how hard you try. Our society today is unfortunately full of spineless hypocrites.

You can't choose how your children look, I get having a preference with who you date, but in terms of children, I think that is more tricky. Although I suppose you are correct in that you can partially determine their skin colour depending no who you sleep with.

That's a touchy one. She's certainly allowed to have a preference on who she dates without being racist, but the way she phrased the rejection was both presumptuous (OP may not have wanted kids) and racist.


@#20- I feel your pain. I said something similar a bit before you, and I think my comment's the only one that's been buried so far. People don't understand that having a preference and racism aren't exactly the same thing. Having a preference is a natural thing EVERYONE has. Unfortunately, our society today is full of spineless hypocrites. No matter how hard you try to explain that, they'll never understand it.
