Racial Fetishism according to Wikipedia Racial fetishism is; Racial fetishism involves fetishizing a person or culture belonging to a race or ethnic group that is not one’s own—therefore it involves racial/ ethnic stereotyping and objectifying those bodies who are stereotyped, and oftentimes their cultural practices. This can include having strong racial preferences in dating, for example,fetishization of East Asian women in Australasia and North America is quite prevalent. Fetishization Is Not A Compliment

Racial fetishism is the indulgence of certain people based on racist notions, discrimination and stereotypes.Whenever you have people who will make presumptions about other. Some of those presumptions and preconceived notions will be sexual in nature, and people will be basing their opinions on them.

In the Tumblr Creepy White Guys, we see a fairly common racial fetish – white guys who have a “thing” for Asian women, finding them more desirable than women of other ethnicities. In and of itself, finding people attractive is neutral; your junk is into what your junk is into, no harm no foul. We all have types that turn our cranks more than others. The problem comes when it goes from simple physical attraction to fetishization. Case in point:CreepyWhiteGuys-1

Let’s break this down for a second.

To start with, the man is dripping with entitlement issues; his listing his accomplishments – including being white – are set as evidence as to why he “deserves” a hot Asian woman. Notice how much care or attention he pays to the woman he’s writing to absolutely none! He’s asking her to apply  as though for a job  but only if she meets his stringent requirements. He don’t want to know about anything about her and cares less.

This man is a racist!

“But hey,”  I hear some folks say, “he’s saying that Asian women are the best. Isn’t that a sign that he’s not racist? After all, he’s talking about how much he loves Asian women.”

No. No, not at all. This pretty much makes him as much of a racist douchebag if he lead off with jokes about doing his math homework (or his dry-cleaning, for that matter) or martial arts.

Those of us who come from a race or ethnicity other than “Mayflower White” are constantly expected to live up to our racial or ethnic standards, according to how the hierarchical alleged melting pot around us sees us. I strongly suggest we get out the melting pot altogether and remove ourselves from this type of exploitation! tb
