Sexual racism is the individual's sexual preference of specific races. It is an inclination towards potential sexual or romantic partners on the basis of perceived racial identity. Although discrimination among partners based on this perceived racial identity is characterized by some as a form of racism, it is presented as a matter of preference by others.

Eusebius McKaiser 26 Apr Despite the tempting simplicity of reductionist approaches to making sense of our world, many of us are beginning to grapple with the irreducible complexity of life. It is rightly, if slowly, becoming less fashionable to persist in looking at humanity and society through only one lens.
This is a great book for those interested in African American history, women's studies, the Civil War, or the history of race relations in the U. A brilliant work, imaginatively researched and well written. Highly recommended.
When white women present their own desirability and sexuality as weapons against white supremacists, they gloss over their own role in racism and demand too little of themselves in fighting it. White women declaring they're denying white men sex reinforces the racist idea that sex with white women — and only white women — is some kind of prized commodity white men should have access to in the first place. During slavery, racist men and women thought of black men as animalistic and overly sexual; these stereotypes have carried over into present-day expectations that black men are more well-endowed and have higher libidos than anyone else.
Older women going online to date face a fierce double-standard of aging; the typical man of any age wants young women. In societies with polygyny, some men have two or more wives, while the others have no wives and sometimes no sex partners as a result. These examples remind us that access to sex can be unequally distributed.
There is ample evidence of sexual relations, from rapes to what appear to be relatively symbiotic romantic partnerships, between white slave masters and black women in the Antebellum South. Much rarer were sexual relations between white women and black slave men, yet they too occurred. Using an intersectional socio-historical analysis, this paper explores the factors that contributed or may have contributed to the incidence of sexual encounters between elite white women and slave men, the power dynamics embedded in them, and their implications in terms of sexual consent. The paper demonstrates how upper-class white women who engaged in these relationships used sex as an instrument of power, simultaneously perpetuating both white supremacy and patriarchy.
One night in Sydney, I was a little taken by a year-old woman in a gay bar. A mutual friend introduced us, and we proceeded to have a curious conversation about color — or as she would have said, colour. She was a chatty and congenial Aussie, with a distinctive no-bullshit edge.
Black skin is thick and lush, sensuous to the touch, like satin and velvet made flesh. There's only one patch of skin on a white man's body that remotely compares to nearly every inch of a black man's skin. The first time I caressed black skin, it felt like a luxury I shouldn't be able to afford. I craved it more strongly than Carrie Bradshaw craved Manolo Blahnik shoes.
