If you began to be very attracted to someone of another race, how would your behavior differ from what it would be toward someone of your own race?
This is a stupid question. I can almost guarantee, based on 20+ years of post-adolescent experience, if I like a girl, I’m pretty much going to act the same way. Doesn’t matter how she qualifies herself when she fills out an online survey. See, because when I’m attracted to a woman, I will pretty much lose a firm grasp on the English language. I will get a nervous feeling in the pit of my stomach that will make me pray that there is a convenient restroom somewhere nearby. And then, of course, I won’t do anything about it because what’s the point? Just so I can have her tell me she doesn’t want to ruin the friendship that probably doesn’t really exist in the first place?
