No they sure didn't, did they.
No it's not racist.
Would you be asking this question if you were Black, saying you really only found other Black people attractive?
It's what you find attractive.
I have to disagree with you saying "most white people" don't like being pale. Where did you come up with that? I'm pale, I like it just fine.
If you're going by that article ci linked to, that 32% of young white women who use tanning beds are ages 18 to 21. In other words, college age kids. People who probably not yet supporting themselves, and don't have adult responsibilities yet.
Tanning beds have been popular with younger college age people for decades. They get over it when they go out into the world.
If you continue to read on, it states that 5.6% of adults have reported using a tanning bed in the last year (even once).
Do the math. It's pretty much very young people/adults.
There are some ethnicities I find attractive, and some I don't. It's human nature to have preferences.
