    Without incurring kneejerk indignation (or one of Daveman's dancing Hitlers), is it racist, or indeed, morally repugnant to (within the law) go out of your way to restrict yourself from interacting with people who don't belong to your race?

    Sorry, daveman's dancing Hitlers are the response to any conceivably politically incorrect opinion on race. And some unconceived, I'm sure.

    Lets go with this for a second. You enter a room full of white people because you knew that room would be nothing but white people. In this particular room though, pretty much all of them are assholes to you.

    Then what do you do? Those whites you seeked out are assholes and you only want to be around whites. Then what do you do?

    Of greater concern would be why one should feel the need to do so.

    Yes, lets go with it. But instead of distracting from the OP with hypothetical scenarios or bias or additional factors that favour the OP's detractors, why not just answer what's actually a rather simple question.

    No it is not racist. Freedom of association.
