There's a right way and wrong way to express love for black folks. Fetishizing us is most certainly the wrong way.

On Sunday, blogger Dami Olonisakin tweeted a clip from the sex-positive podcast Guys We F**ked, and expressed her disappointment in the content, according to Buzzfeed News. Olonisakin pointed out she had been a fan of the podcast and Corinne Fisher and Krystyna Hutchinson, the comedic ladies behind it, until she reached an episode in which they "started fetishizing black men."

"Their concept as a whole is an amazing idea – having guys you’ve slept with come on the show with you. As a black woman there’s no way I could do that because there is still a level of slut shaming within my culture,” Olonisakin told iNews.

In the clip, Fisher brags about bagging a black dude, and Hutchinson enthusiastically applauds before adding a sprinkle of hipsterness to her fetishization by noting she's been "f**king black guys since the early 2000s."

"It was my second black guy though," Fisher says of the black man she's slept with, before Hutchinson says, “Yeah, but you even said your first one didn’t count.”

This second black man counts, apparently, because he was "like a real black guy, like basketball player height, deep voice, lives uptown."

Fisher then goes on to complain that although she considers this sexual partner "a real black guy," he wasn't "black enough" for her because he didn't "act, more like, thug. I don't like … black people who act like white people.”


Doubling down on the casual racism, Fisher says, “And I know we’re gonna get a bunch of letters like, ‘What do black people act like?’ Guys, we all fucking know when we say stereotypically what black people act like, and that's what I like.”

Not wanting to be left out, Hutchinson joins in by referencing an ex partner of hers, saying, “Nico’s kinda like that. He’s got that hood swag, mmm, I love it.”

Olonisakin, and many others on social media, did not love it, and pointed out how "disturbing and super offensive" it is to fetishize black people, and to treat black men as "sexual objects you can tick off your bucket list for your own sexual gratification."

 Hutchinson took to Twitter to apologize, and said she will strive to "do better."


"The thing is, although this isn’t new, you’d expect that a sex positive blogger would be the last kind of person to enforce those beliefs because they’re not only problematic, but they’re violent," said Olonisakin.
