    They are legitimate claims. The outfit he's wearing is from a French clothing brand started by a Georgian designer who is also the creative director of Balenciaga. The script around the neck is Georgian for "Lord Have Mercy on Us". 
    I can't speak on his intentions, but the iron cross (just like the swastika and even the Celtic cross) were appropriated by the Nazis and only slightly altered to make them somewhat distinct. I would have never looked at his shirt and thought "Nazi" because the swastika is the main symbol that comes to mind. The other ones I've seen from the Roman Empire and the Middle Ages. It is amazing how much Hitler, and the Neo Nazis after him, just altered the view of certain things.

    Mark my word, when her views start to drop (due to the uninspiring videos), she'll start talking/advising about sex. It just seems like a move she'll do.

    Yeah, that's how I felt when I came to the part where she talked about her groundbreaking trip. She really shoehorned the "getting beat by that..." joke. I paused the video because I had to do a double take. I don't find it empowering or 'feminist', if I'm going to be honest. 
    It was, overall, a good video. I will say this about her, it's good that she's just an average girl talking about these things. I don't think she's ugly, but I do think she's average and that's definitely more relatable than the beauty gurus that try to be relatable but are near perfect.

    I'm of the same opinion as oneminusone. I know Darcei says she's been into KPop since she was 14 and busted out her old high school journal for a video, which I think was to basically lowkey "prove" that she's not a Koreaboo but an OG Korean pop and drama lover. That said, I do wonder if she is one or if she's pushing an image to cater to her audience. She admittedly was going along with trends when she started her channel, but wanted to be more "authentic", do the make up she truly feels is her style and saw there was no representation for dark skin. Even if I didn't have my doubts on Koreaboo vs catering, I still find her annoying as hell because she is truly a clout chaser/drama seeker. I'll admit, I look in on her because I want drama to ride up on her ass where she gets taken down a peg or three, as she needs to be brought down to reality. Before, it was figuring if I actually liked her enough to follow as a subscriber.
    I want to see a black girl succeed in the realm of (East) Asian beauty, I really do. However, it's gotta be one of two scenarios, as I've come to find with Darcei and Kennie JD: 1. A half black, who has been raised in/with whatever particular culture, because I ultimately think that someone within the borders or bloodline of one East Asian will show more respect that will get them in the door, 2. A black girl who actually has deeply researched the culture and can relate more than just damn KPop, Kdramas and food. 
    In a lot of ways, I feel Darcei wants to be the Jackie Aina of Korean beauty - except without the make up skills and harping on a culture that isn't her own. Plus, I think Jackie earned her place through hard work rather than riding on drama.

    I'm Japanese mix. The best advice I can give is trust in your partner because you're not going to easily win over his family. I don't say that to be pessimistic; I say that to be in the realm of reality. As much as love my heritage, East Asians are some of the most intolerant people. Oh, I could tell you some things my Japanese side has said about other cultures (Yet, surprisingly not my black side directly). 
    Anyway, you need to trust that he loves you and wants to be with you; you need to trust that he won't cave with the family pressure and fold. However, make it clear that you want to enjoy his milestones and growth where you aren't going to miss an occasion, such as graduating uni, because his family is there. That is some BS, in my opinion. The older generations are about tradition and that pure blooded. However, if you show (or keep showing) enthusiasm for Korean culture, it would help. At the end of the day, you aren't any other type of Asian  . That was a joke full of truth. Believe me, a family member of mine married someone who is Chinese. That made family gatherings very interesting... in the worst way possible. 
    It may seem difficult now, but I have faith they'll warm up eventually. It will just take time for them to see that the very thing they may want for him to be happy is the very thing you are providing him; it's just, some parents, don't immediately look out of the box.

    There is nothing wrong with being a virgin. I lost my virginity at 16 and regretted it almost immediately, definitely more throughout the years. It was not only the societal pressure but also the fact that, for once, a guy I was into seemed to also be into me. I wish I had stuck to my guns to remain a virgin.
    Sex can be amazing, but the times it's been amazing has been with the person I actually have feelings for. Just wait; your virginity is not mine, but it sounds like you more want to give in out of curiosity and societal pressure rather than actually experiencing sex for what it is. We aren't animals of the beast variety. A male anything can do the mating dance, then (once accepted) just go all in because it's hormones not feelings that are driving their mating. Humans? We feel and we feel deeply. The act of sex is more emotional than people care to admit.

    Can’t wait to see what the wise sage will bring forth when this video comes out!

    If you look at her oldest videos, you can see that her lips are smaller. There may still be filled, but they aren’t as dramatic. It kind of gives you a better idea without.

    What bothers me the most is her hypocrisy as well. In addition to buying from fast fashion brands, she talks about buying clothes. It's like these woke upper middle class/upper class young liberals don't understand the basics of economics. If you demand (or promote the demand) companies will continually supply, even the high end ones. As cool as the thought of starting a make up and/or clothing brand is, the fact of the matter is that too many of them exist when they don't need to. Real sustainable lifestyle influencers truly recycle and allow themselves to be "boring" because that is life, if you want to save the planet. You can't buy sustainable, yet keeping buying, buying, buying just because you want a paycheck. If you're going to talk the talk, realize that here is more to the walk than just WHAT you purchase; it's also the FREQUENCY. Oh, and maybe keep doing your resell shop because there are girls/women in the midwest and rural areas that don't have access to cool, trendy thrift pieces.
    My other gripe (as highlighted in her HB segment) is the "sustainable is elitest". Yes, most sustainable brands are expensive af, but she misses the whole point on the WHY. If you're going to be woke, then you should probably highlight that the price tag of a sustainable brand is what a garment when it's 1. Well made and 2. Being created/manufactured by people that are getting paid a livable wage and benefits to boot. It's not elitist in any way because that's what we want in Western countries - to be paid a livable wage. If you don't want to pay that, then focus on brands paying their foreign labor a livable wage according to THEIR country, because that would be cheaper. Sustainable brands aren't just expensive because it's for rich IG girls! I mean, she loves spewing out "woke" political talking points so much, why not bring up the whole conversation and show how all these issues are interlinked... OH, and maybe don't be just a Western feminist with your shoulder jokes!

    This came up while I was looking at sustainable fashion videos. I have my thoughts on her segment, but I feel maybe it's too nitpicky. However, I can't believe she spent $600 on those boots. I understand that she said she splurges on items that need structural integrity but... they're ugly af! Just had to let that out on the internet.

    I understand that there are people who say mean things, but I can't understand why some of these gurus feel they need to "call out the haters" all the time. It's one thing to want to be an advocate to stop cyber bullying, which then you just discuss the topic as a whole rather than point out ONE comment, but this obviously isn't that. The crusade to shut people up just makes them do it more because you played your hand at showing it got to you! Celebrities do it all the time and they get trolled on the internet and harassed in the flesh; celebrities are human too and no amount of money will change the effect of an insult.
    Also, Rihanna sends PR to many influencers that don't go the extra mile to look like the 'sex kitten badass' because it's for promotion, meaning it has nothing to do with you looking hot. Sorry to break it to you, Sarah!

    I don't know if I said something incorrectly or if it just that I put a screenshot with only one of her followers saying something in a live, so I'm going to assume it's the latter. It could be that it was never pointed out on other threads, so I'm sorry for just saying something with zero context. Basically, her followers have been tagging and @ing Christian Yu and others, trying to get Kennie attention - whether to maybe hook up or collaborate. I know a day or so ago Kennie talked about re-recordings one of her songs and wanting to collaborate with Dean or others; or it could have been her followers that said she could. I don't know. I can't remember.

    Man, how embarrassing... 
    I know that celebrities get all kinds of thirst from fans, but to basically have a mob of followers tag you and dip into your live streams (probably even dms) to bring attention to one person who thirsts? That’s next level... and desperate for attention. And, yet, it is entertaining because it’s just so sad.

    I know how you feel. I may not agree with some of the things she says, but I remember being in that place, especially when I was her age wondering wth I was going to do with my life. There was part of me that felt like big sistering, but I know she'll get through it.

    It's because Darcei knows she can't grow, gain subscribers or keep watch views up without trying to perk up drama. It seems that now it's pointing out people giving her flack for her skin color and doing Korean beauty and other black people saying she needs to do more "black things". She was complaining in her latest video that she got popular for being "different", but now people are saying she needs to do the same thing as other people. No, girl, you gained popularity through drama and complaining/ranting about said drama.
