QCQ for _____Blackfishing_____________________________________

Quotation (with page number or parag number or time stamp if video/audio)

“Neoliberalism commodifies  difference using the same consumer logics it uses to flatten race, gender, and class, diversity.” (pg 4)

Comment (250-500 words)

This quote in the article stood out to me because people tend to urbanize and use black culture to capitalize on the black markets. Many entertainers tend to use black culture to appear to be mixed race or racially ambiguous towards marketing opportunities. The surplus to idolize black culture and tend to blackfish are trying to become more “stylish and exotic”  to achieve more attention from others on media. However cultural appropriation plays a major role. The viewers will tend to call out influencers who are black fishing and will cause a major backlash on their influencer page.


There are is also Asian fishing, how come that is less looked upon than black fishing? They are both cultural appropriation?
