“Women are sexualised according to their race all the time. With the help of the media and pop culture, women are placed into different colour coded compartments; sweet and submissive, wild and sexual, sheltered and passive, all based on their ethnicity… The biggest problem with racial sexualisation is that it’s just regular old racism, but more insidious because it’s clandestine. And it can go from flirty to hostile pretty quickly.” – Rula Al-Nasrawi for Vice.
