I am a white English male with many black and asain friends if i tell an estate agent i dont want my house rented to a white family am i racist?


Yes.

Mike Caro controversially pointed out that stereotyping is not always stupid, when you don't have access to the information you want, as race can sometimes help predict behaviors (not that it necessarily causes them) because it can be a reasonable proxy for cultures and demographics.

However, this is specifically a situation in which you can get all of the financial, career and reference information that you want, you can discriminate based on that, so it would be absolutely ridiculous to specify a skin colour.

Quite a lot of people. If your question is rhetorical and you mean 'I don't care', then fine.
You are of course entitled not to care.

I don't care that you care. If you feel that the masses will get irate over it, then do something about it. If you dont want to though, and would rarher spend your life on forums discussing your feelings, good luck to you.

It's ok to eat pizza and chips n cheese right. So how come when I asked Dominos to put chips n cheese on my pizza as a topping, they said they can't as it would burn and come out Black.

Dominos are racist.

If it was a troll you could excuse its stupidity.
