When I pick my son up at the library, he is standing in front of a blonde girl. As I move closer, I hear them talking, laughing, flirting in that awkward early-teen way. She clearly likes my son, and I can see him basking in the attention. I admit to some motherly pride that someone besides his grandmothers and me recognizes his attractiveness. But, at the same time, I start to watch the door. My son is not white. I remember a time when I easily fell for the story that Latino men liked big women. For a fat girl like me, it was a comforting story.

But as other white women shared these stories with me, I started to get itchy. There was something to the narrative that kept bothering me. Yes, my partner has a leaning towards fat White girls love latinos like me, but to suggest that everyone in an entire ethnic group has the same preference, I realize now, is clearly wrong. When my son underwent his teenage sexual awakening, I started to pay even more attention to these stories from my past.

After all, these women were White girls love latinos about men like my son. Girls in my classroom had warned each other about Mexican men. The men leered at them, they claimed. These stories did more than shove people into stereotypes.

They perpetuated the idea of the hypersexual brown man. When we as white women emphasize these stories of being checked out and catcalled by men of color in particular, we are contributing to a culture in which these men are easily seen as sexual predators. I am as guilty as White girls love latinos friends, which is why I committed to stopping this line of thinking. Nobody deserves to be unfairly cast into any role. When we do so, how big of a leap is it to imagine men of color as unable to control their sexual impulses?

A quick look at the arrest records for rape in reveals that men of all ethnicities are accused.

Rape arrests based on race show white men being arrested far more than men of color with the caveat that there is no listing for Hispanic men, who are usually considered white in statistics. White men are more likely to be arrested for rape because there are simply more of them. My own experience with sexual assault bears out the truth that brown and Black men are far from the only ones who rape.

As a young teen, I was raped twice — both times by local white boys. Nothing ever came of the rape charges because no one believed me; I had a low social status, and I was drunk during the assaults. I spent many years after these incidents being afraid of white men. When I finally left Maine and began to hang out with a more diverse group of people, I found myself less afraid of men of color than of white men.

In fact, the one time I got drunk with White girls love latinos new group of friends, I was turned down by a Black male friend, who opted instead to just hold me. I am a lot more uncomfortable around the white frat boys who frequent my local grocery store than the young Black men who do the same. And when Roof used my white womanhood to justify his act of slaughtering mostly Black women, he justified the slaughter of those who are victims of sexual assault.

As such, the desire to protect white female bodies from Black men is even more absurd. An intersectional feminism must root out all racist stereotypes, including those leveled at men of color. If we continue to see these men as hypersexual, we give power to white men like Roof and Trump. He is smiling at the camera. Behind him is a blurred building with trees.
