Do I hold some anger or hate just because they are Latin?
Simply put, we are generally not compatible and thus for the sake of simplicity, I just don’t look at them anymore. That is not to say that I would never date a Latin woman if we matched, really, REALLY well.

But somehow, dating someone based on their skin is not.The ad also specifically warns white women: “Dear women of the West: Without white children we will perish.” –After deplorable Roseanne Barr fires shots at Black-ish our writer is ready to throw hands The ad is gross in so many ways, from its racism to its sexism and everything in between, and the internet rightly called Reddit out for allowing it to run.But after all the backlash, Reddit only offered this semi-apology: It was an accident.“White women prefer white men to the exclusion of everyone else — and Asian and Hispanic women prefer them even more exclusively.” “Men don’t write black women back.” Their gay data reads the same: “Blacks get fewer responses.” Have you closed your browser and crawled into a hole to live out the rest of your days unencumbered by society and its bullshit yet?As is protocol with sweeping epidemics, people should start by honestly talking about the problem (see: for suggestions).
