Complex recently posted a video featuring a diverse group of interracial couples discussing common stereotypes they’ve dealt with when they first started dating each other.
But what it seemed to be filled with was a lot of jokes that fetishized each other’s race.
“I like my coffee black.”
“When I saw his dick I couldn’t believe it.”
“I don’t see her as black.”
Complex definitely dropped the ball and seemed to play on these stereotypes instead of addressing actual issues interracial couples have to deal with. Also, where were the LGBT interracial couples? Also, don’t Asian and Hispanic people date each other? Or Asian and White people?
In making a video about stereotypes, Complex fell into many of its own.
