I've had similarly inflammatory stuff, although for the life of me I can't remember what has been said.

I assume it's attention seeking whether the 'new' profile is a scammer, or sock puppet, or whatever,

So I don't.

No reply, no blocking, no opening future mail.

I think people read the threads and when they see a subject that gets a lot of attention, they send emails to stir people up. If you respond to this person in any way you give him/her the attention the seek.

It could be offensive and racist, certainly tactless. Although to be honest I feel the same way about women from the far east. They look like aliens to me, not my usual type.

I seriously would consider to say:
"Yea you may like me now but I'm sure when you get to know me better
and all my concealed blackness comes jumping at you like a Rottweiler with rabies
you may want your money back. So I'll spear you the downer."

And then you block him. On cs they can read your last mail even after blocked.
It's only when he will try send you a "no sorry I didn't mean it like that..."
he'll find himself blocked.

If you wanna just go straight for the block button instead
that is understandable. You didn't deserve this.

Didi, it's rather rude than racist...
Some people have their own preferences and would choose an Asians or black woman than white.
There is a white British comedian who always points his preference towards black women and mocks white women.
I don't think anybody would call him racist.
If it was the other way round, racism was going to be found in his words for sure.
Some white people don't like Eastern Europeans even if we are white, that doesn't bother me at all.
I have been told I wasn't that bad as they expected and it was meant to be a compliment .
Jeeeezzz

Thanks for the support Snowlynx, TM, Tru, SA, G and others teddybear . Guys, I really was a bit shocked, so this was my response, and his followup:

"wow So big of you to like me "despite my color". hmmm"

"Likeness and color goes and it may not be your color is what I like but the content of what is in you. What is your job if I may ask you?"

I really agree with most of you that I should ignore any future emails (haven't answered the last one), but part of me just want's to tell him off, then block him. I really feel that he should know better. Could he really be what people refer to as being "tone deaf"?
