Racial preference gay dating
To unpack and understand what makes sexual preferences racist, you have to understand that anti-blackness is a core American value. But before we get there, we need to talk about the most common defenses of your sexual “preferences”: This is a false equivalency and there’s this thing called intersectionality.
Men of every race can be short, hairy, or have green eyes.
White gay men have sanitized and commoditized the culture of queer people of color while giving us no credit and even less respect.
But alas, we only have time for one cup of tea today.
So sip on this: Racial sexual "preferences" are a lingering vestige of the Jim Crow era “taboo” that is interracial dating.
Interracial dating was such a provocative thing that it was illegal in many places — just like sodomy!
