Romanticizing

Has anybody ever seen the front cover of those romance novels with the paintings of usually a man and a woman on the front of it caressing eachother? I am sure you have, but I have seen tons of them with Native American men and white women holding and kissing. The idealism of native of americans being romanticized is something that I have spoken about in a class I had in college called american culture. People seem to agree that romanticizing native americans is wrong and creating novels like these is also wrong. What do you all think?
