An incredible clip from April of this year tackled this issue, branding it "sexual racism." Note: This is way different from having preferences.It's about ruling out entire groups of people because of stereotypes or because you think there's no way you could be attracted to them.The clip is a great summary of so much annoying racial asshattery.

"He started talking about how sexy these Asian dancers were, and I also found out that pretty much every other girl he'd seen on Tinder was Asian.
