Are Racial Dating Preferences Racist?

Do you think saying you’re “not into” a certain race is just a matter of preference?

A lot of people do – and Kat Blaque used to be one of them. But in this episode of her True Tea series, Kat shares how she’s since come to realize how her “preferences” were actually informed by white supremacy.
