Cringe-worthy TikTok videos of white women fetishitizing black men have been circulating online.
The videos involve white women rapping or making comments about black men’s physical attributes, and are accompanied with hashtags like “#mytype” and “#blackmen.” The Daily Dot found nine videos where black men were objectified.
One of the videos was made by TikTok user @ms_k_mc, who appeared to be making faces with the text “Men I like.” The footage listed four options: “White men,” “Asian men,” “Mexican men,” and “Island men.”. She shot down the options, but showed her approval when the last choice, “Black men,” was presented. The post racked up over 4,500 likes on the video-sharing platform.
Another user, @halpal__, unveiled a video with the caption, “Where are my dark chocolate boys.”
“Just to clear the air—no, I don’t date white boys,” she declared in the clip. “I do date mixed boys, I like y’all little caramels okay. Y’all is fine as s**t. But if you are chocolate, specifically dark chocolate—baby boy,” she continued.
Internet users are calling out the trend of objectifying black men. “Stop this trend of fetishizing black men in TikTok. It’s weird and uncomfortable to watch. Just say you like black men and go,” one Twitter user weighed in. “The girls on TikTok calling black men fine like they’re rare creatures,” another Twitter user said.
