Some examples for us to discuss?

Astonishingly, not everyone is looking to be objectified along racial, consumerist lines. You are probably ugly so it's hard for you to understand?

Exoticisation is a thing, and it contributes to other forms of racism.

I was not aware that wang or booty were race-specific terms.

I think you've missed the point. This thread is about the mass media.

Ironically, I think that it is the very sexualisation of black bodies (booties & wangs) in the media which has turned you against blacks.

I've heard some talk of exoticisation/fetishism around race before and I've never really known where the boundaries sit. I find dark skin to be an attractive feature but it's not like I fancy every black person by virtue of their race. Where does personal preference end and exotisation/fetishism begin?

Former Observer, it's not even 24 hours since your thread espousing a viewpoint that's the polar opposite.

When you troll you gotta be more stealthy.

There is a strong correspondence between ugliness and low IQ. Your use of the word "mate" is therefore a big turn off for me.
