The conclusion of Interracial Love, Racism and Fetish “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” William Faulkner “Racism is not an event, it is a structure.” Dr. J. Kehaulani Kauanui At the end of Part Two of this blog series on interracial love, I asked two questions:
- Is it any wonder that Black women are the demographic least interested in dating and marrying white partners.
- Are we surprised that they cite feeling fetishized as a leading reason why they avoid crossing over the racial divide?
- Given the definition and origins of fetish, how could it be any other way?
