General "Non-Blacks Pretending to be Black or mixed Black"/Blackfishing Thread


33 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

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.

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.

I don’t think we can discuss Danielle Bregoli/Cash Me Outside/Bhad Bhabie until she turns 16 in March.

@mikafrancis was also called out/exposed on Twitter today.

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.

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.

Ariana probably didn't intend for it to look like that.

But she literally looks just as dark or even darker than some of the black singers here with her very dark fake tan.

Yeah Ariana doesn’t look like she’s purposely trying to appear black, but I doubt she could naturally tan to that color on her own. Ariana has also had quite a bit of plastic surgery. She looks so different from her Nickelodeon days.

Sounds believable to me. 

I take that back, everyone came with points I didn't know about before.

Lol the “i tan easily” and claims of being exposed by the sun in the summer are such bs. Like I didn’t know Sweden was hot all year round lmao. Yes some white people tan instantly and do get very dark, however, there’s a difference between white girls who are tanned vs these ig thot minstrel shows. They style themselves after Black influencers and if it’s not that, then they’re a Kardashian clone and we all know who the Kardashian’s steal from.

Emma Hallberg needs to give it up because it’s clear she’s deliberately making herself look ethnic through makeup, hair, and filters. And wasn’t her bf blackfishing too lol? He had cornrows in but she deleted all his pics.

If her hair is naturally curly as she says why does she sleeps with braids? if she gets tan easily why does she promote fake tan (and has now deleted it) and use foundation that’s obviously too dark for her? I don’t believe her she totally tries to look black.

There’s alot of korean hiphop fans who try to look black as well i’ll try to find their instagram accounts.
