Why would they be racist?
Apparently "is unattractive to me" now equals "are lesser human beings who should be hung or some shit". There was a memo.

Much like the "Anyone But England" World Cup t-shirts that have just been pulled from store shelves in the UK because the police stepped in and said it could "incite racial hatred" despite English not being, you know, a race, apparently the expression of a personal preference in any form is now racist, whether it refers to race or not. It is spectacularly stupid.

While calling him ugly in such terms is kind of mean, it's not racist. Sheamus is whiter than the average white man, and that was what was being addressed. He's not saying he finds all white people ugly, and even then it wouldn't be racist. You're not in control of what you're attracted to and there's no implication that things you aren't attracted to are worse; you just are attracted or aren't.

That said, while his skin colour and hair colour is a slightly unfortunate combination, I don't find Sheamus painful to look at or anything. I mean, I did in January, but that wasn't anything to do with his appearance.

I think the point is if this was said about a black guy being too black then it would be considered racist.

As a person with red hair and pale skin I'm siding with the OP.

Not by me. If someone finds very dark skin to be sexually unattractive then how is that being racist?

I'm not saying it is, but that's the general perception in our overly PC society.

How is attacking someone for being "pasty white" racist? I'm pretty sure pasty white isn't an actual race.

Re: Ethiks 'TM' is an ignorant piece of shit.

If someone isn't attracted to a particular race or ethnicity, calling them racist is unfair.

This is a bit radical, but that's just like saying any guy who isn't attracted to another guy, well surely he must hate gays.

I have to agree, I rarely find black and Asian women attractive. I have nothing against them personally and I think some are beautiful, but I don't feel a physical attraction.
