The whole "preserving history" concept seems utterly bizarre to me in this context. Do they really think that their ancestors, whose cultural heritage they claim to be so set on preserving, subscribed to the "racial purity" views that were briefly popular during a brief and, frankly, stupid period of modern history?
That a Viking, a Celt, a Greek or Roman of old would have had any particular taboo against sleeping with people from different countries or even — *gasp* — with different skin colors?
Really, everybody who is alive today is probably a mixture of quite a number of different ethnic groups. Which, of course, always were quite a lot more fluid than white supremacists seem to believe.
I was under the impression that this was less about Black women finding white people unattractive and more about Western standards of beauty considering, for some unfathomable reason, Black women generally less attractive.
