Interracial dating comments
"The hypersexualized images of Black women which have persisted throughout history and into present day media have continued to feed into this monster."Of course, not everyone in an interracial relationship is in one because of racial fetishism, and no one knows what "The Bachelorette" suitor was actually thinking when he made his comment, or if he was even aware of the implications.
However, if you can embrace these differences, then your romance can flourish. Fetish assumes that you are turned on by certain characteristics or things, such as people with a fetish for pantyhose or scat or whatever. It is a bit difficult to define the difference between a fetish and attraction.
You might even learn something too by stepping outside your cultural norms. We can’t help it if we have a preference for one type of look, such as one guy being attracted to skinny women with blond hair whereas another prefers curvy women with darker tones.
Whites are privileged in this society and having what they have serves as validation for a lot of people.
Successful minorities love to say, “You're privileged but I'm so smart and awesome and financially secure that I have the same, if not better, house, car, and woman as you.”Need evidence that some black men see dating a white woman as a sign of their success?
How can you tell when it is a fetish and not just attraction?
