Like Latinos, Asians in television and film often speak accented English, suggesting that they’re recent immigrants to the country.These portrayals ignore that the United States is home to generation after generation of Asian Americans.Even more alarmingly, she not only fetishized underage K-Pop stars, but also made various references to raping them.While this particular woman’s racism may be one of those cases where you sigh to yourself, whisper yikes, and resist further engagement, it’s still indicative of a larger, and sometimes seemingly innocuous phenomenon of fetishizing and dehumanizing Asian bodies – a subject that I find myself all too familiar with.

“They’re most often shown in ads for business-oriented or technical products—smartphones, computers, pharmaceuticals, electronic gear of all kinds.” Although people of Asian descent have lived in the United States since the 1800s, Asian Americans are often portrayed as perpetual foreigners.

What she implies is that we should also be grateful to anyone who does take a liking to these stereotypical and essentializing qualities about us, because ultimately white women are the pinnacle of male, and especially Asian male desire.

I went through the majority of high school believing that being Asian made me unattractive.

A few weekends ago while doing my daily browsing through Tumblr, I stumbled across this particularly inflammatory, offensive, and all around racist, anti-Asian post written by a 20-year old white woman under the guise of a personal rant questioning why Asian men only date Asian women.

Fortunately, I only came across this post because many of my fellow Asian/Asian American women bloggers on Tumblr circulated the posts, calling out the user for what she had said, to the point where she was rightfully reported and removed from Tumblr (to my knowledge).
