Is This Why They Burned White Women At The Stake?
More commentary on my increasingly notorious “interracial dating” post. From Egotistical Whining:
Saturday, June 10, 2006
At the freeslave, there is some discussion of interracial dating between black men and white women. My take is this. What reason do you have for dating white women? Did you just meet some girl and find that she was totally amazing and the one that totally completed you,etc? Did she just have a nice ass and you wanted to get some? That’s ok too- just make sure everyone agrees that you’re just there for the panties. Or are you doing it because you think black girls are ugly, or insert stereotype here? The first is fine. Love is love and do what makes you happy. But if it’s the second, you’re a terrible person. You have to think to yourself- how did you get this stupid idea? How can all black girls be X way? You know all white girls aren’t Y way. And if you have to resort to the whole “I’m just not attracted to black women, it’s just like not liking redheads” crap- shoot yourself. Maybe you need intensive fucking therapy to see why you want to lump a bunch of women who all look different in one box, you dumb fuck*. So to keep it simple, liking white women because of actual traits individual white women may have, yes! Disliking black women because of crap somebody made up, no!
*This rationale is more common among whites, who when they use it seem equally as dumb.

I agree our beauty standards are influenced by our culture; all of our standards are influenced by something or someone outside ourselves. To become human AND an individual, one must act in the world in accord with and in contradiction or opposition to externally imposed standards. How else does a person figure out what THEIR standards are?
People have to act, do, experiment, observe, think, feel, assess and re-assess. Then they figure out what makes sense, figure out what THEIR standards are. And then the process repeats itself, or not.
Robots are programmed to move in a certain way. People who are programmed to think certain ways about themselves and others and act accordingly are robots.
