KOREAN POP, THE GLOBAL "PHENOMENON" CONTAMINATING CULTURES + My Real life encounter with Racism at Big Bang concert

Investigative journalist Tay Symone (moi) has been getting worldwide recognition for her work and dozens of journalistic offers and opportunities. I'm not gonna lie I do appreciate the fame and money I've made during my time reporting for ohnotheydidnt but due to my journalistic integrity I could NOT accept those offers due to the censorship and corruption from the government, white house, and other racist institutions. I will remain a free woman reporting for the people and fighting the GOOD FIGHT!
The year 2012 has shown that Korea will stop at NOTHING to dominate the world's music industry while simultaneously attempting to obliterate every culture and race across the globe. The one area in which Korea displays diversity is in their widely varying spectrum of Races in which they spew hateful stereotypes and cultural contamination. The usage of the n word is definitely nothing new in KKK-POP, yet it's still just as disgusting to see. In light of fizzled out girl group "Girls' Generation"'s songwriter advocating for a Black Genocide (covered in my previous post), year-end statistics show that racism in K-pop is in fact at an all time high in what some are calling a "nu-Hitler" generation.

(as someone from germany) I'm seriously offended by that title. (it's just as racist as the things that are being listed in this article)
We take our country's history very seriously and the name 'hitler' is not something you should just mess with.
before criticizing others the OP should raise her own awareness of racism and not offend people from other countries or cultures. also, if she wants to be taken seriously she should stop writing such shitty articles.

I would love to read an article about racism in kpop and korea in general that is informative and serious. I think racism is a very important topic, but I just cannot take this article or the person who wrote it seriously.

>.> Why are you acting so righteous and actively ignorant? Ok we'll wait for the day racism in kpop is written with a quill and fine parchment paper before its uploaded on the net. You don't have to wait, the problem with most of you dismissive assholes in omona is that racist problematic shit comes up all the time yet none of you take the initiative to call it out and confront it. You wait until others do it then focus only on their approach and tone. Why don't you do it yourself if you're so concerned?

A+ comment all around but...

actively ignorant?
I never once said that the topic of this article is not something to discuss about. I think I'm doing more against racism than this girl does and instead of basically 'complaining' about her bad experiences she should do some real research and write an article that could maybe even be used somewhere else. The only thing we (from other countries) can do is to try and raise the awareness of the fact that korea is a very racist country, but to do that we have to set a good example and be reputable so that others can take us seriously.

okay so you want me to stop complaining about the op? what is your idea of confronting it? discussing it over a bad article on omona? I mean if you guys are so offended by korea's racist society then either stop listening to kpop or do something real and go out there and start with doing something against racism, maybe even start in your country because I think it's not only a korean problem.

what I'm saying is that this girl does it the wrong way. I mean it's great that she is trying to do something but she is complaining about people who are ignorant and uneducated and calls it racist even though she is ignorant and uneducated herself.

just a quick information.. the GD and Taeyang pict from GD instagram WAS NOT intended to "shows off
their racial insensitivity to Indian people
as well".
the musical instrumen Taeyang held IS NOT FROM INDIA. It's INDONESIAN traditional music instrument called suling. The hat Taeyang and GD wore also INDONESIAN traditional clothes called BLANGKON. I am a part of BIGBANG Indonesia regional staff based on Yogyakarta (it is a small province in Java, Indonesia) personally bought the hat (GD hat) you can check it on my instagram (ekyamelia) if you dont believe it. While the clothes GD wear as well as Taeyang's hat were gifts from BIGBANG Indonesia Regional Bali member. You can track back their twitter account @VIP_Bali

The picture it self was taken after BIGBANG ALIVE TOUR INDONESIA (13 Oct 2012). As an INDONESIAN my self i didnt get offended by this. We (INDONESIAN VIP) treated this as a fanservice of them.. A gesture of an appreciation of the gifts from us, INDONESIAN VIPS.

Sorry for making INDONESIAN in caps.. we often mistaken as India which the whole different country as Indonesia.
liarose 27th-Dec-2012 03:43 am (UTC)
they were complaining more about the pose.OP confused it as mockery indian pose, which for us just look like GD was doing basic Bali tourist pose (maybe because he was aware of the barong shirt?)that's why none of us Indonesians feel offended.

curlylooks 27th-Dec-2012 05:09 am (UTC)
thx for the head up!
Actually we can find that pose from India, Indonesia and also Thailand traditional dance.. and maybe from other countries too..

This article got me thinking if I ever gone to Korea, wearing hanbok and doing some buchaechum pose, do I also doing a mockery to Korean culture?
bolingi_aii 27th-Dec-2012 02:05 am (UTC)
As much as most of you in here complain about the OP, these post seem to be to be made only when she comes around. If all of you are so sick of her and her approach, then do something about it. Write your own scholarly articles on this issue. Don't just sit there and complain about her when you all are inactive in calling racism in kpop.

Tbh, judging by some of the comments here, if these ppl did their own posts it'd be full of whining about reverse racism, ppl butchering MLK to tell black ppl to shut up, and how black ppl and poc in general need to forget 600 years of ongoing oppression and micro/macro aggressions that mentally wear us out but we should never ever forget about that one black or asian girl in middle school who teased them once. Or how asian ppl outnumber them and are mean to them (while not understanding the historical context as to why these people do not like you)

I said this above but a lot of ppl on omona (or fans of east asian pop culture) don't like complaints of racism getting in the way of their gross fetishization, infantiling grown men and women. and "soft" racism.

Op used to be nice too! They yelled at her then too. I appreciate her fuck yall attitude and jokey approach.
bolingi_aii 27th-Dec-2012 04:44 am (UTC)
This is exactly why I challenge them, because I can tell by their petty complaints that they don't know shit. You couldn't be more right! A majority of these white people can't even discuss or note the active racism against the Asians they love so much. Look at how they handle the one critical and nonpraise worthy article about Psy. The way they handled it was so childish and reeked of fetishism. They refused to look at it in an intelligent way, refused to acknowledge the lack of representation for Asians/Asian Americans that fueled by racism, all they could say was " so much jealous!11, its totally not racial". These people are so disgusting and racially unaware.

They all just want to love their oppas and unnies and spill western paternalism all over the precious baby king known as South Korea.

Exactly, people in omona seem to have acquired amnesia about the way they used to dismiss the OP and a lot of other black POCs when they would speak up... intelligently ~~**~~ about discriminatory things against blacks.

*slow claps*

someone REALLY tried to argue that cultural appropriation wasn't a microaggression of racism with some bullshit ~can't we all just get along~ sentiment.

i really can't. and this right here:

is the motherfuckin' T R U T H.

We all saw the Omona reaction when Korean netizens went off on white foreigners over those foreigner models being disrespectful. I laughed tears of blood at that one. Majority of post were complaining about Korean's being racist, completely ignoring the initial act of racism done by white people that netizens were responding to and also ignoring the sexism too. I like ThisIsNotKorea on tumblr cause she goes off on these fetishizing fan girls.
bolingi_aii 27th-Dec-2012 02:11 am (UTC)
That show with EXID is so irritating. Everything that host said with his "apology" was idiotic,this is the problem with people dismissing issues like this, misinformation is spread. They could have taken this as an opportunity to really address this issue, and all you koreaphiles sit up here and cry about how " they don't know" clearly they know what the fuck they are saying and how to use to it and that they shouldn't. I feel like the English speakers in kpop are so weak and passively enable this type of cultural ignorance.

Love these posts and the same wet diapers ate coming here to whine.
bolingi_aii 27th-Dec-2012 04:50 am (UTC)

And we are supposed to take this seriously?

I guess the mods on OMONA got bored and decided to liven things up.

reelrecnizereel 27th-Dec-2012 03:38 am (UTC)
I am glad that OP brought up this subject. I wish OP would've handled such ignorance better.
"(First of all that bitch looked more like a monkey than I did cuz my new sneakers were spotless and I had just hot combed my hair an hour before the concert)"
I facepalmed so hard here lol

Kpop is going to need it's laundry aired every 6 months.

A lot of you ignorant fuckers on here are absolute douches.
If you took some time outside of googling your "oppas bulge" and looked up some real world issues going on, you wouldn't have to embarrass yourself by asking such stupid fucking questions & then proceeding to excuse the racism.

"So I stretched out my foot because my new gforce (some kind of jordans or whatever) were too small for my feet (they were the only ones in my size at Champs)"


fatjackinc 27th-Dec-2012 04:15 am (UTC)
i tried to read the concert part but then i just couldnt when she started to go talk about her jordans and hot combed hair omgggg im sorry i did try tho
_lightmycandle_ 27th-Dec-2012 04:17 am (UTC)
CRYING @ this post and it's brillance
amy 27th-Dec-2012 05:36 am (UTC)
i think op's satirical tone through a lot of her writing is actually what makes these articles most important. it makes people comment and makes them talk about the issues that are brought up in the actual content. so many important articles that should be sparking discussion on omona don't. and as sad as it is to see all the apologists in this post, it's encouraging to see the users who are willing to step up and say something in reply to educate the people who come into these posts ignorant to any and all degrees. i know that reading those comments and threads has taught me much even if i've just stayed silent while i read.

basically, thanks op. even if your methods aren't always perfect, the outcome is always flawless.
uledy 27th-Dec-2012 07:08 pm (UTC)
I find these posts completely pointless. Mods accept them and pretend like they care about anti-Black racism. Fine, but all these posts do is re-affirm the anti-Black racism that Black folks on Omona already knew was bubbling beneath the surface anyway, giving these racist folks further reason to disregard these very real issues.

I do not approve of OP's method, but if they are earnest in their intent, then fine, but don't lie to further your agenda. I have no idea what the purpose of the BB account was except to incite disarray and anger, especially since many aspects of OP's account were straight up LIES or completely unrelated to the issue at hand. But, whatever. No reason to complain any further- OP's going to keep posting, Omona's going to keep being racist, world's going to keep turning...
justtakisha 12th-Jan-2013 04:35 am (UTC)
I agree with everything. I felt like the entire thing was fabricated for sensationalism. I was there and I had an amazing experience as a (short) black woman surrounded by Asian and whites.
poppyonmars 28th-Dec-2012 05:45 am (UTC)
about girls who stood up in front of you on the concert: we were on SS4 in Singapore, and when show has began, girls from seats in front of us stood up, and we have too stood up too, otherwise we wouldn't be able to see anything. we were kinda lost at first, but that was our first kpop concert, and we thought that maybe it's normal at events like this, and we didn't ask them to sit up... and when i looked around i saw that whole stadium are on their legs, dancing and cheering. so we spent 4 hours on legs, but that was very very enjoyable 4 hours.
sorry to you, op ^^
