Reverting back to the topic of this post, you can usually tell who is black (unless biracial), not always the sexual preferences from first glance. There never seems to be a rational explanation about the first one though--just she's black, he's black and that's that. It would not bother me so much if the suggestion came from people who actually knew me or my type (or whichever black person I'm talking about and his/her type). Gotta be more than race from first glance though.
