Daniele Watts' Boyfriend Throws Her Under The Bus




I ENCOURAGE you to listen to this audio. This is a sad example of what we discuss here on fucknofetishization. Interracial relationships DO NOT end racism, just like heterosexual relationships do not end sexism. You can be fully be in an interracial relationship and still have animosity towards members of a certain race or remain ignorant to the certain oppressions that that race has.

In this audio we can hear Danielle’s white boyfriend agreeing with the officer that she stepped out of bounds and that doing some time in the back of a police car will do her some good. Danielle’s boyfriend repeatedly agrees with the officer participating in the antiblack racism the United States law enforcement perpetuates.

This is inexcusable. Hopefully Danielle hears this audio and does what is best for her physically and mentally after this incident.

"Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today."
