I’m sorry, y’all.

I know this is a Black Fashion Blog and nobody here signed up for this tangent kpop post…but I can’t.

I use to love…and I mean LOVE, 2NE1 & Big Bang. I would always argue that YG ENT artists were THE heavy contenders in the kpop biz.

Then a whole lot of cultural appropriation and racist acts later, I threw in the towel. (My last straw was CL coming at me with some fake west side Chola impersonation talking ‘bout, she was worried she wouldn’t be able to get a husband after that video.)

*Le final side eye*

I, like any kpop enjoying person (not living under a rock), heard about 2NE1’s new album release. Wanting to check in on my girl Bom and thinking maybe YG had gotten their shit together, I non begrudgingly watched their live “Crush” video…now wishing I hadn’t.

And wondered who okayed this and why. Who went ahead and decided it’d be the shit to take classically Black hairstyles and make it yet another “quirky/funky” kpop trend?

Who pulled a Moesha on Dara’s head? Who got those packs of Kanekalon and braided each synthetic strand into the poor girl’s possibly already bleach damaged sensitive scalp? Who got the tub of black protein gel and designated toothbrush to slick down her baby hair/edges à la TLC’s Chilli circa 92?

This, alone, doesn’t amount to much offense but added to the already shit ton of things YG has taken from Black Culture, it’s enough.

As a little Black girl, I remember to this day being ridiculed and accosted on a daily basis because of these hairstyles. As a child, I was mocked by teachers and classmates and as an adult I’ve been called “Shaniqua”, “baby mama” and “ghetto fabulous” at work.

Black and Latina women get shamed for wearing these beautiful hairstyles. So no, Yang Hyun-Suk-ssi, you cannot just “ghetto-fy” your artists to urbanize kpop and profit on a culture that’s already bastardized. 

And you know what else you shouldn’t do? Use Black people as props.

I first saw the all Black band in Big Bang’s YG on Air live “Blue” performance, thinking I may just be trippin’ but didn’t put it pass Mr.Yang to pull some shit like an all Black band for possible…I don’t know…proximity swag cred? Well low and behold, the all Black band was rolled out on us again! You’ll find them once more, accompanying 2NE1 in their performance of “Crush”.

We said it most recently to Miley and I’ll say it now to YG ENT; Black people aren’t accessories. And if you don’t understand the implications behind YG’s all Black band…well bless your heart, ‘cause I can’t help you, child.There are just too many receipts available for proof of foul play in regards to YG’s racism on the internet for you not to know what’s up. You either don’t WANT to know or you’re an apologist fangirl/fanboy who will ride or die for their oppas & unnies (and their labels), regardless of whom they trample on.

Now, again, you may think this does not amount to much offense, but on top of Taeyang’s past wannabe light skin racist tomfoolery and GD’s blackface wearing and constant quest towards becoming the Korean incarnation of Snoop Dogg…It’s enough.

My love for music and innovative musicians transcends language and genre…but not racism and cultural appropriation.

YG…get your shit together, please.

-A.

Saw this on deviantART’s Feminism article and I just

—Nella

  • Quevanzhané Wallis as Annie: YOU'RE RUINING MY CHILDHOOD, ANNIE IS A RED-HEADED WHITE GIRL, NOT SOME GIRL FROM THE "GHETTO" THIS IS STUPID, IM NOT RACIST I SWEAR
  • Rooney Mara as Princess Tiger Lily: Ah yes, she was perfect for the role. What do you mean whitewashing? She is a good actress. Native American women don't try hard enough to go into acting, that's their fault. Make your own movies if that's what you want to see.

white people literally be like ”i’m not racist you fucking nigger”

Once again, Caucasian does not mean white, and using it to mean white is actually racist.

There are real Caucasian people who live in the Caucasus region, and they are not white.

I don’t care if this is a joke or not, regardless it trivializes the ramifications of the white washed skin complex and beauty standards prevalent in Asian (South and East primarily) and idol culture as a whole. Not even considering how fucking damaging this sort of mockery is.
The industry profits from white washed beauty standards via cosmetics, whitening creams, founding this infrastructure that requires you to look and present a certain way if you want to ensure success. Within idol culture, female idols are constantly hounded and harassed for their appearances not conforming to Western standards and more often than not undergo bouts of plastic surgery in the process:  double eyelids for eyes, v-lines for chins, s-lines for curves, choco-abs, you name it.
However, it’s with both South and East Asian’s skin complex that show you how damaging and ingrained antiblackness has become within the industry. Skin tone is still associated with social status, the beauty ideal of fair skin is still being maintained; it’s pre-existing social more whose hold on society was further deepened with increased exposure to Western cultures. And it degrades and demeans the worth of Asian women on a daily basis. Most KPOP idols will be asked to “bleach” their skin before debuting as a singer in the entertainment industry. The increasing of whitening products to satisfy the female customer’s needs has shown that whitening takes on a huge part in most women’s lives.
The punchline is that she’s darker than the others and it’s been taken to an extreme, but this a mentality that actively harms Asian folk, myself being included, that is still the source of profit and serves as a justification for the harassment of KPOP idols on a daily basis. Too dark is synonymous with different and unattractive. That’s a byproduct of imperialism. And it’s not fucking funny. East and South Asian societies are more often than not willing to ostracize women based on skintone due to the, as stated before, association with antiblackness. And it makes people feel like fucking shit and degrade themselves based on eurocentrism that manages to milk them for all they’re worth.
Whoever thought this was funny can sit their Western ass the fuck down honestly.
