Don't forget the drinking... sake is vital.

I would say it is a case of "grass looks always greener on the other side". There are pretty women in every race, just today I saw a beautiful naturally blond girl that took my breath away. And yeah, I have seen some really pretty asian girls, especially on TV. And thats the root of the problem, what you see on TV is hardly a represantative sample of the population.

I only admit a preference for small and petite (but with some curve thanks) but yeah, I'm completely 'star trek'/UN when it comes to saying, "wow, that's cute/beautiful/etc". There simply are more 'small and petite' on the Pacific Rim I guess. Standing in the middle of, say, Japantown or Chinatown in a West Coast city - I'm usually just floating along into lightpoles and such.

OTOH... my department secretary back in the 80s was a tall, statuesque black woman (think Zoe from Firefly). Just jaw-droppingly pretty and great personality. I had a sports car at the time and she was always... "oh oh, shotgun with 'Vexx'!" when we were off to meetings, heh.

I grew up somewhere that I'd occasionally take heat from acquaintances of the racist kind if I admired a 'latino/black/asian/whatever' for being pretty. Seems pretty stupid to rule out being aware someone is pretty on that basis. Oh yeah, it is stupid
