Though the term is more socially acceptable in today's society, the original meaning of the term is often considered racist or at the very least derogatory. Jungle Fever's original definition was used to describe a white woman whom has a fever causing her to be sexually attracted to a black man (from the jungle). Before the term jungle fever became popular, there was another more racist term being use to describe a white woman's love for black man known as "Nigger Fever". Nowadays, the term is socially acceptable by many, though it's not uncommon to find certain people whom take offense to it.
