The details are important here. It's fine to say "I don't want to date people who don't share my values". You can criticize that, but it's not an offensive thing, in-and-of itself. It's another thing to say "I won't date black people" because that's pretty racist and ignores the huge variety of how people look and act. You could say "I'm not attracted to black people", which isn't as terrible, but still pretty bad.
You can't control who you're attracted to (at least usually), but translating that to sweeping generalizations or justifying it with sweeping generalizations is bad.
