See, that is another reason why ill never think fetishization is harmless. Like sure, “latinas are so hot!” might look like a nice, positive stereotype on the surface, but look at the consequences of said stereotype, the sexual tourism industry it has created and sustained with the money of white gringos coming to my country looking for a spicy latina wife.
Fetishization is profoundly dehumanizing and no one will ever convince me otherwise.

This is the biggest set up I’ve ever seen…nope not gon catch my black ass with this. Nope.
Hell nah son, niggas will lose they muhfuckin life over this nonsense
White people create things like this because they know they can get away with it.
File under things not for black people
As soon as I saw it I was like naw this is a set up sad that that’s the first thing that comes to mind smdh but that’s the truth about the world we are living in
Did Thomas Jefferson have such a hard time getting “All Men (and ideally i’d hope women) are created equal” through peoples thick skulls?

Poor bastard was ahead of his time and ours.
Text: Especially with #Ferguson all over social media, here’s my pet peeve: People who complain about racist family/friends without actively confronting them. Unless you’re depending on this racist for your livelihood, e.g. living in their home or relying on their income and they could cut you off, CALL THEM OUT. That racist aunt you visit maybe 3 times a year is posting about “thugs”? Send her facts. Show her the hypocrisy of her words. Don’t just let it go because you don’t want to “cause trouble”, THIS IS THE TROUBLE. And this applies to non-black POC. Recognize the anti-blackness in our communities (Asian Americans, you have a big responsibility in this) and do something about it. I always say no one is obligated to educate strangers that pop up demanding a breakdown of race relations, but if you consider yourself an ally yet can’t even confront that guy from high school you keep around on Facebook? I call bullshit.

"Excuse me, I once read a detailed analysis of The Matrix trilogy, I think I know whereof I speak.”
When men talk of women and girls in terms of legal/not legal, what they’re really saying is “I already sexually objectify this child and would attempt to fuck her if there were no laws in the way.”
You can’t deny that is fucking scary.
Sometimes there are things that just sort of vaguely seem wrong, but you can’t put your finger on why…until it’s worded like this, and suddenly everything slides into place and you feel like someone punched you in the gut.
"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin
This man was a pure genius.
The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.
