Ah, the old "white people are the real victims" card. Cool, cool.

Do you mean like the "only white people can be racist" card?

No it isn't.

You can say things like "Serious encounters only, In town for a short time. Do not contact me for sex." etc. Things like that. That's okay.

But saying things like "White guys only, must be good looking, no ugly men." etc. Is kinda petty and unnecessary.

If someone you don't like contacts you, block and ignore them and don't pursue anything with them.

Whites Only is a sign one would in Jim Crow southern US back in the 1960's.  It is OK to have a preference.  Everyone likes what they like, but you can preface it in a way that does not come across being racist.   At the very least, just say that you prefer white guys or guys with x y z characteristics.    Saying things like no asians, no blacks, no Indians, etc just reeks of racism.   I truly do not know how anyone could not find the statement "no rice" offensive.

Honestly, it's not ok.

If you're generally more into a certain thing, that's fine. But excluding entire races pre-emptively says a lot about your openness to other people. It doesn't just say that you're more into the other people. It says that you can't even fathom being attracted to a person of a different race. And that's weird. I wouldn't want to date anyone that had a statement like that in their profile.

I don´t see why not. People have preferences, it´s about the same as posting "Asians only" or "Blacks only".

I mean, no need to be an asshole, but you can´t force people to like everyone, and it helps to avoid disappointing people.
