    There's nothing wrong with not having a butt. I think the problem with that photo is that she photoshopped her butt out in order to make her legs/back look slimmer, and it looks weird.

    It's weird because there are a lot of white women who look like her who are perfectly okay with saying that they're white. 
    Why put up a front? What's the point? 
    Money? Probably money.

    I've seen this girl. Apparently, she was also posted on a curly girl appreciation page for black women. 
    And yes, her face looks shopped/facetuned to me too.

    Just wanted to say, not all black people have dark skin either. Well, Black Americans at least. 
    I'm black, and I'm much paler than Ariana and any of these women mentioned so far in this thread. 
    At my darkest, I was Alissa Ashley's (and her twin's) skin tone. I stay inside a lot, so I tend to be paler. Think Mariah Carey's color, except type-4 hair and more stereotypical "black" features.  

    That's one of the main reason's Rachel Dolezal got away with pretending to be black for years. There are black people that skin tone or lighter with lighter-colored hair. 
    This doesn't necessarily pertain to Ariana - I just wanted to put this out there.

    Honey, you are tan, but you're using foundation several shades darker than your naturally tan skin color. 
    Your hair is not curly - it's wavy at best. You've admitted to sleeping in braids to get your hair to it's desired curly style and volume. 
    You also put on quite the fake accent and exaggerated AAVE whenever you post a video to Youtube or Instagram. 
    Stop lying. It's clear as day what you were doing, and you're caught now. Best to apologize and move on.

    Thank you. 
    I think people took what I said a bit too seriously, but I'm glad for the people who actually got what I was trying to say.

    I feel kinda divided on Ariana. Although I do doubt she can naturally tan to that color, it is a more believable tan than these ig girls. Plus, she still kept the majority of her features the same, as well as mixed make-up styles from a bunch of different places rather than just one. 
    If anything, the randomn, out of place use of AAVE and slang on her ig and Snapchat stories is all she has going for her. I'd categorize her as going for the "ambiguously brown" look, not the flat-out black minstrelsy going on in this thread, although that is a problem of its own.

    Okay. I agree that race-fakers who are white are coming from a more malicious place than race-fakers who are POC, but I feel like this is kind of implying that race-faking when you're a POC is not that bad.
    This girl is not Blasian. Considering how Blasians are treated, especially in contrast to Eurasians and full Asians, this is still pretty bad. Especially if she's taking opportunities or getting recognized more than actual Blasian women.

    I just made a tread about this. If people are willing to make this a general race-faker thread, I'd be willing to move info from that thread to this one.

    This chick is all over the place... 
    Proud of your heritage, but it's a compliment to be mixed race? 
    And yes, there is more to this than just getting a tan. I mean, take a look at Ariana Grande. 
    https://www.betrendsetter.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/ariana-grande-lip-fillers.jpg
    Fake tan, (barely noticeable plastic surgery). However, she still looks Italian. 
    She doesn't. 
    The makeup, the hair, the style... You were definitely trying to get people to believe you're lightskinned or mixed. Now you're caught, backed into a corner, and like all race-fakers who can’t get out of it, you pretend that this was never your intention in the first place. 
    If anything, her going through an emo phase makes me believe this more considering that already confirms that she had identity issues before.

    General "Non-Blacks Pretending to be Black or mixed Black"/Blackfishing Thread
    There's been a trend of fully white or non-black IG models who pretend to be black or have all the general marks as race den fakers/catfish. 
    Before any of y'all hit me with the "but x people can have tan skin/curly hair/thick lips/curves/ect." those people aren't who I'm talking about. 
    The types I'm talking about have all the trademarks of race-fakers discussed in the Koreaboos/Weaboos threads. 
    This girl was the first one I came across - she's fully Swedish. 
    https://www.instagram.com/eemmahallberg/?hl=en
    She has a tan naturally, but also uses foundation several shades darker to complete her "look". She also went viral for her highlighting a while back. Had a YouTube tutorial, but I can't find the link, so I'm thinking she took it down. Before she did, she had to disable the comments due to how much people were dragging her. 
    She's far from the only one. There's a few Twitter threads about this topic. I don’t like the popular term that's being used for this now, and you'll see why, so if you find more, please just use the term blackfishing.

    Of course, there's obviously miss trendsetter Rachel Dolezal. 

    And this German woman who got full blown surgery, including skin injections, to wear blackness like a costume and thinks she's actually black now. 

    As well as Truedy from Unpretty Rapstar. 

    ^^^ She even had interviews where she was crying about being compared to Yoon Mi Rae, but tried desperately to copy her. When she was outed, she was quick to backtrack, but deleted every comment on her Instagram that was trying to politely educate her on why what she was doing was offensive. As well as dropping the "I respect the culture" excuse a lot of race-fakers use when they're caught. 
    As with all race-fakers, it's usually painfully obvious people are pretending to be something they're not.
