Yeah I agree with you on this. These girls need to understand that if someone fetishizes you they only like the idea(?) or an aspect of you. There is no guarantee they actually like you for you so it's a sell out. ngl Zico, Jay Park, etc are so problematic it's unbelievable, I mean yeah their music is not bad but their personalities are a different story. If you're a black girl who likes these guys just because they like black women I think you need to take a step back and analyze yourself imo.
OMG this is too much. As a black person I do understand getting into something like kpop, jpop, or anime can be difficult due to the fact that you don't know if the people in those niches like you for you or like the idea of you. Kpop, especially k-hip hop, is becoming very problematic in terms of the way they treat some minorities. From mamamoo doing black face, to bobby and mino and their snl skit it's not all fun and games being black or darker skinned in kpop. However the fact that KMusicandBlackWomen won't call out problematic Kpop artist bothers me. Like have some self respect you can't keep staning someone who has done racists or problematic shit towards a group of people
So happy I found this thread cuz now I have a place to post pics of all the scary looking ig models I see on IG. This one girl I'm pretty sure is Japanese but idk she gives off the typical chinese living doll vibe so i can't pinpoint her race however she is a model for a fashion brand in Japan know as never mind the xu. Here are some pics:
I don't know why we are discussing certain cultural appropriation topics here but there is a thread for that in the General discussions area. Can we plz stay on topic and my two cents about what has been said non-western people listening to western music, hip hop etc is a lot more complicated than just stealing black people's music remember Korea had their own traditional music they listened to before kpop became a thing and btw since when was laying down your edges just a black people thing??
In terms of of her discolouration I didn't know anything about that. But in terms of her chest, while it's true it's not her fault for being flat chested, have inconsistent boobs in every photo is something to talk about. It's very hard for me to take her seriously when she tries to make her boobs look like a D cup in one post only to have them shrink to an A cup in the next one. If you're going to enhance her boobs in whatever way at least be somewhat consistent about it because it comes of as fishy especially with the amount of sponsors that Lily gets who only know how she looks based on her IG
From what my Korean friends have told me it's taboo in the workplace and among older citizens who still find many things taboo. Of course most women, they told me, don't show cleavage it's not uncommon to see it as opposed to before. Idk i think she's taking assimilation too far and does not have a firm grasp on Korean culture and customs. This gives me a Mira sort of find tbh
I think she forget's when it comes to assimilation you only assimilate to things that are considered quite important to most ppl in society. Giving up you individuality is not assimilation it's turning into a robot with nothing unique about yourself
Haha I also noticed the same thing and actually a friend of mine who has just noticed that Lily never really looks the same mentioned that the lipsticks she promotes are very basic and aren't any different than the ones found in a Sephora store. I understand liking a certain shade of lipstick a lot but when you have the opportunity to promote for companies like Etude or 3CE at least make them look slightly different
I apologize if I offended anyone that wasn't my intention I'm not telling any American citizens to get over it I'm simply stating my point of view from an outsiders perspective who has been listening and observing what is going on. I will no longer comment on this topic till it blows over since people are still dealing with Trump's win in this election.
I totally agree. American students at my uni were contemplating missing class either to protest or cry. Like common, I get that your not happy with him but it could be worse. If we look at all the countries who have not option but to vote for one person or are stuck in a dictatorship it makes all this complaining seem a little over the top. Eventually everyone will need to deal with the fact that Trump is president and hope for the best. In terms of black people voting for him me as a black person find it odd but I'm not surprised. Black people can be quite bigoted as well no matter what they might say or tell you. Also I've notice in general black people in the States will vote for anyone who claims/says that they will help the community regardless of if that is true or not** **Correct me if I'm wrong about that, I'm Canadian so this is all based on what I've observed, read or heard during the course of the campaign from the black community. Can I also ask why some Americans think that moving to Canada will solve their problems?? One getting Canadian citizenship is quite difficult and we are not lenient on anyone including fellow Americans and two moving to Canada will not lessen the impact of Trump being president. So it is better to stay in your country and fight for what you believe in rather than run away. Seriously I don't hate Americans but looking for a loophole out of this mess isn't the answer ok?
This feels like Ronald Regan's presidency to an extent. He was also incompetent and had all his advisors do everything for him which led to huge corruption scandals. Trump like Regan knows nothing which means that all his advisors and Pence will do the thinking for him which is what scares me the most because these Pence is a horrible person and the republican party even though they claim they do not agree with Trump's rhetoric I feel like some of them, or most, are a bunch of silent racists, bigots, homophobic, sexists people that hide behind the god fearing Christian act that I hate a lot. So if anything if Trump doesn't go through with his bs there is no guarantee that his party won't. So I feel like this presidency is Regan's all over again except more radical
Exactly, that's why i don't really believe in multicultural countries since they only seem to be multicultural when it benefits them and their image. This thing about being a black women and being judged for who you data has caused be not to be pro-black since I can't stand groups that have rules and regulations on how you should act/be. Yes interracial dating can be difficult but don't tell me it's worst than same race dating after most domestic abuse cases in the black community are committed by other blacks so i don't necessarily see the argument of policing who ppl date
Idk if this applies to other racial communities but I hate this "black love" movement that's been going on in the black community. Don't get me wrong I don't hate the idea of two ppl of the same race dating since it is more common but I hate that ppl now feel they have the right to judge you on how pro-black you are as a black person based on who you date. All of a sudden dating a non-black guy is a huge no-no and makes you anti black and tell the whole community that you are out to ruin "black love" and the "black family". Um no you can call everyone else racist and oppressive then turn around and do the same shit to your own community. I honestly can't stand the community sometimes, like I want to stand with them but they can be so fucking petty that I feel like just going my own way because if falling in love with someone who isn't black makes me "whitewashed" or "anti black " than there's no point of hanging around.
