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.

Member Lime of the alleged "girl group" Hello Venus uploaded a video of her rapping Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now”, and she clearly says the word NIGGA loud and proud. The company attempts to cover up the racist act upon realization of the aforementioned racist act by bleeping her out. Bleeping it out doesn’t change the fact that she had the nerve to say it as clearly evidenced by her mouth, once again showing the insensitivity of KKK-POP.

In an even worse instance, LE of the girl group EXID uses the n word in CONVERSATION during a talk show, thinking she’s cool for saying it. Though the hosts tell her it’s bad for her to say that word, they laugh along with her. Truly disgusting. Check the video at 13:49 for the chilling footage.

Top tier girlband 4MINUTE released a “Hindi” version of their song “Volume Up” which was in all actuality, them singing in gibberish. Moreover, look at all the stereotypical and racist imagery in the video.

Indie boyband WONDERBOYZ also released a music video for their single open the door which had racist potrayals of Indian and Bollywood culture. We shall not let our Indian brothers and sisters’ culture be exploited by these uncultured hooligans.

The most popular boyband in South Korea BIG BANG, who is usually known for their appropriation of black culture, shows off their racial insensitivity to Indian people as well.

It doesn’t stop there with BIG BANG as well. Look at one wannabe black man member (Taeyang)’s twitter icon. It’s a drawing of him in black face with nappy hair.

Now last month what had happened was is I had found out a friend was a huge big bang fan who had two extra tickets to their show in Jersey. I jumped at the chance to go out on the field and do my first on-the-scene report.

The concert venue was empty. Seungri and Taeyang tried to explain it off as because of the blizzard but the snow had already melted by that afternoon so they were lying.

So these four korean girls came half way into the show and had their seats in front of us. They were wearing ugly home made big bang tshirts with the korean flag on them. Me, and Shadavia (my cousin's girlfriend) were sitting behind them. They got up to dance stiffly and we couldnt see the concert because they were in our line of vision. I asked them nicely to move or sit down so we could see and they said "No, I don't care if you can't see" and started snickering to each other in Korean. 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) and rested my foot on the back of her seat. All of a sudden she slams my foot back and tells me to TW: RACISM "take (my) nasty jungle bunny feet off (her) coat" I was stunned and if it weren't for me carrying an eighth on me and Shadavia's probation I would've whooped her ass. She started calling me and Shadavia apes and said she didn't know why they let monkeys into a concert for humans. (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 was surrounded (more or less cuz I told y'all the venue was empty as hell) by other asian and Korean people and they didn't say anything to me but a lot of them snickered at the verbal hate crime I had just endured. SECOND OF ALL THOSE NIGGAS WERE IN JERSEY AND THEY SANG EMPIRE STATE OF MIND FOR US! Which some may find humorous but looking deeper it's just a sad reminder of how ignorant they truly are to the countries they're so desperately trying to overtake. Thirdly, Daesung said "What's Up New George" and ALL 5 OF THEM failed to address Hurricane Sandy, showing a disgusting lack of concern for the very people they were making hundreds upon hundreds of dollars off of for that concert.

At the end of the concert on the SECOND night we waited outside to see Big Bang before they left, but their racist staff members pushed all of us dark skinned folk to the back and let the white people in the front. I guess they didn’t want Big Bang to be “scared”!! Truly horrible experience.

Omg, stop this. You ruin perfectly good conversation on this complex issue by trying to solely target K-pop as the origin of global ignorance on black people and should be scapegoated as such. I really can't stand how these ignorantly narrow-minded posts keep getting approved.

No, I'm acknowledging the complexity of the topic at hand, which you roundly fail to do, every time you try to scapegoat K-pop and Koreans for all global racism against black people, while offering no actual solutions, or suggestions, just narrow-minded, reaching condemnations on a whole group of people, and industry. I'm sorry you had slurs thrown at you by individuals, but your subsequent conclusions on the whole of the genre/fandom/etc is basic as hell. You offer nothing intellectual, just sensationalized vitriol.

White girl whining that racism is ruining her fetishization. Lol merry Xmas to meeeeee
tiddlywinks103 27th-Dec-2012 03:25 am (UTC)
You should have asked for some brains, unfortunately. Sucks for you.
45s 27th-Dec-2012 03:49 am (UTC)
I have plenty. I can send some to you since you're desperately in need!
tiddlywinks103 27th-Dec-2012 04:11 am (UTC)

I'm good, thanks. Enjoy being basic.

U should go back to tumblr and find more aave to misuse and appropriate here, LOL

But seriously though, op used to be nice and still got ppl like you tone policing her and yelling at her about "ruining their fun". We've had ppl here post stuff on racism, be nice, explain politely, and they still get shat on. You realize no one has any obligation to be nice to you after all that.

Honestly I appreciate op for going off bc it definitely shows us who the racists and apologists are.
tiddlywinks103 27th-Dec-2012 04:38 am (UTC)
You seriously do not know just what tone policing is if you, for one second, think that is at all what my comments have entailed. But, then again, like I said, you obviously failed to ask for brains, so I am not too shocked.

Just because one 'fights' against racism, does not excuse one employing racist attitudes, judgments or phrasing to bolster the points. It makes you a shittily useless advocate, hands down. And no, you do not deserve to be the instigator of racial discussions, when you act that way. So sorry.
45s 27th-Dec-2012 12:20 pm (UTC)
I actually do know what tone policing is bc I'm black and deal with ppl like you often.
