From there, fetishism has evolved to be defined as "the pathological displacement of erotic interest and satisfaction to an object or bodily part whose real or fantasized presence is psychologically necessary for sexual gratification".According to William Pietz's The Problem of the Fetish, I, characteristics essential to the notion of fetish include the fetish object's irreducible materiality which resides in its status as a material embodiment, the theme of repetition compulsion, and the dependence of social value on specific institutional systems.Racial fetishism also often includes the fetishization of white women, black men and women, and latino people.Racial fetishism has been theorized in academic discourse in relation to Freudian sexual fetishism and Marx's notion of commodity fetishism.You don’t need many markers, depending on the grain of your phylogeny (e.g., to differentiate West Africans vs.Northern Europeans you actually can use one marker! 2) These phylogenies reflect evolutionary history, and the trait differences are not just superficial (i.e., “skin deep”).
Some writers who have extensively discussed racial fetishism include Homi K. The notion of "fetish" has been around for a very long time, and in fact, the origins of the word itself arose within imperial, racialized tensions.
