WEIRD HISTORY OF ASIAN SEX STEREOTYPES by Chescaleigh


I know tons about how black stereotypes were constructed in the United States.  And I'm beginning to know snippets here and there about very similar black stereotypes constructed in white England, white France, and the ultra white Netherlands despite our black histories being so different because of Cecile Emeke's series on the Black Diaspora.

But Chescaleigh has put together a lot of information in the video below from here, there, and everywhere about the construction of Asian stereotypes.

I think I'd SEEN a bunch of the things she's describing here. But I hadn't put all the images together in a big picture and a history of Asian people in the United States.

Why Asian women are hyper-sexualized is explained.

Why Asian men are hypo-sexualized is explained

How institutionalized racism is at the root of it all is explained



It's not a sociology course, but it hits a bunch of the highlights at once so you can get a picture.
I'm a firm believer in learning all I can about other ethnic groups. If people of color being a larger group than white people in 2060 or so, then we better get to know one another's group-self as much as we get to know individuals in other groups. We don't all have to be the same. But we have to respect one another's differences. And respecting one another's differences means getting to know another group or demographic's history in the United States.
