In an article titled "Here’s A Fascinating Survey About Sexual Racism Every Gay Guy Needs To Read," Moore details the damaging effects of not finding black men sexually attractive.
He begins by explaining that he's written articles on "gay sex, race and racism." In response he has received a backlash, including one email in which a reader said, “You’re just mad because you’re black and ugly and nobody wants to [have sex with] you.”
Moore then explains the pain of "sexual racism" that he, and others, have faced. "Sexual racism, or sex preferences and prejudices based solely on skin color and perceived ethnicity," Moore writes, "is one of the most psychologically damaging and mentally exhausting forms of racism in the contemporary gay social world."
He continues, "Unfortunately, it’s difficult to be a brown body talking about racism without preaching to people who already know what time it is. It’s a highly emotional topic, and chances are you’re already surrounded by people from all backgrounds and ethnicities who get it. The hard part is getting other people to get it, too."

A small minority of people (21%) specifically said they did not have someone because of their race. To those who did, Moore responded (emphasis his), "GURL."
With this in mind, Moore asks, "What’s the difference between denying someone a job because of their race and denying someone a date or sex because of their race?"
He then contends, "People think desire is just a harmless preference, but like all taste, preferences are learned."
Moore concludes in the end, "It’ll take a lot of work to dismantle the harmful effects of sexual racism because the thing has a long, terrible history. In the meantime," he suggests, "create a safe space by surrounding yourself with people who like you because you are you, not because you’re an ethnic collectable [sic] or a one-off sexual fantasy. Chances are if someone can’t understand sexual racism and how it bothers you then they are probably not good for you anyway."
