The Rules Of Attraction

"That girl is hot!"

"No, man, black girls don't do it for me!"

"Are you kidding, black girls are sexy!"

"Nah, black guys are sexy! Fuck white dudes. Give me some dark meat!"

"Are you kidding, Asian chicks are the hottest!"

"WTF? Dude, don't you like breasts? Give me an Italian babe!"

This is a selection of random comments I've heard in various bars over the past couple weeks as the weather has gotten warmer, people have started wearing less clothes and scoping out hotties has become the sport of the town.

All of which made me start to wonder. It seems like a lot of people get either really turned on by or really turned off by people of a given race. Now, is this just a sexuality beyond your control - like being straight or gay - or is it part of some form of subconscious racism?

I mean, I'm sure we've all heard comments and conversations along these lines. So, what do you think?

The Drunk Ex Pat Writer wants to know - on the Q.T. and very, very hush hush.
