Reverse racism is bullshit.

this pathetic excuse for a woman should have been arrested for disturbing the peace and hate speech.

3 things here:

1.) “i’m calling my husband”: “my husband’s gonna kill you” because what could be better than a woman who HAS A MAN as an attack dog, right? and another racist one at that!

2.) “you’re scaring my children”: yeah no, she doesn’t get to use her children to make herself look worthy/better. she is implying that he’s some kind of predator. also, she is using the children as pawns to play the victim.

3.) “you’re a racist”: the racist white woman calling a black man a racist, that’s rich. egalitarianism in a nutshell; yet, both sides can’t be wrong here.

either one of these 3 things can be played out in many other scenarios involving parents, white people, or straight women. and they have.

on a similar note, here is a quote on the sexual fetishization of black men:

“The ad was in a women’s magazine and if I remember correctly, was for a perfume. It featured a white woman lying in bed with a black man. The man’s shirtless back was to the viewer, making only his taut, muscular form and powerful-looking arms and shoulders visible. He was faceless, unidentified. The woman looked sultrily at us from over his mysterious form, satisfaction writ large over her features. She had partaken of whatever delights this man had to offer and was smugly, luxuriantly basking in the afterglow.

The ad copy was, “Take a walk on the wild side.”

My teacher used the ad as an example of how marketers can use certain words and images to convey large amounts of information subtly and effectively. A white woman having sex with a black man? How risqué. The implication: be a little like that woman. Spray on that perfume and feel like the kind of girl who has sex with faceless, muscular black men in ritzy hotel rooms because it’s an adventure, a thrill, a risk, something illicitly pleasurable.

These are the semiotics of race. This is why columnists will trip over themselves not to call Lupita Nyong’o or Angela Basset “beautiful”, choosing instead to use terms that call to mind a kind of savage, animalistic magnetism: fierce, striking, edgy, eye-catching. Words like “pretty” and “beautiful” and “cute” are for white women whose bodies and sexualities are not seen as wild, animal, or untamed. Black men are hulking, threatening, thuggish; white men are charming, sexy heartthrobs with hearts of gold. Brown women are exotic, with their “honey-coloured” skin and their “mystical”, “enchanting” beauty, unlike their white counterparts, who are held up as not only ideal, but knowable and safe. White people are beautiful; non-white people are dangerous.”

by Aaminah Khan

these same racist fetish tropes play themselves out in porn where “white women like taking bbc” and that’s just sickening. there is misogyny as well but ultimately though it is about white supremacy, ‘cause these same tropes depend on the belief that black men are savages out to ‘ravage’ helpless white women, all while white men are encouraged in their racism. statistics show that rapists are predominantly white men, and not stranger rapists, either. so even though ‘false rape accusations’ are largely a myth promoted by MRAs you can bet that if the wrong man were arrested or the woman DID make it up altogether, a black man is arrested for it.
