this blog is making me laugh. so. hard.
let me explain. i am a white girl (woman). and i have had the experience of being the ‘exotic’ one. and it sucks! so good for you for pointing out how…
It does happen but the exoticism of white girls is mostly positive. Send a white English teacher and a black English teacher to Japan. The white English teacher will have more opportunities and be treated more favorably than the black teacher. Lets not even bring up sending a Japanese-American teacher to Japan, that’s a whole another bag of worms.
White is seen as the default of being American and beautiful. Lots of countries have their own version of Vogue that doesn’t even show them. Its the “exotic” white girl page after page.
Then they’re are casting people from foreign countries who believe that having a white face for they’re campaign/commercial/school makes it better.
What I mean is that White girls in foreign counties will still be treated better than non-white girls in foreign countries. They are still the advertised default of the world.
