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.

I'm sorry you experienced such a rude, immature behaviour of those girls at the concert.

When I read the title, I was like "Huh? "Generation of New Hitlers"? Did I miss something?" (didn't know beforehand that nothing in the article was really new), but after having read the article, I was more or less disgusted by the title. I, as a German, am so sick of people using "Hitler" to label everything racist.

As for the "n-word"...I'm not even sure if Korean Idols (especially the younger ones) really know what they're saying when it comes to speaking English... Not trying to to take sides here, not knowing about it doesn't make it right to use the n-word, but it might be an explanation why they're saying it in the first place /shrugs

totally agree with you on your n-word opinion

Another thing about Tae's hair, I'm pretty sure it was based on him after he had his braids out

Some older pic of Tae's hair

there's a girl in my old school with hair like that and it wouldn't straighten no matter how many times she rebonded it, she just gave up in the end and let her hair be lol.

I don't know, I just would have taken this attempt at journalism a lot more seriously if it didn't remind of an angry girl yelling at me in whiny voice the entire time.

As for the n word, I seriously don't get why they expect Koreans (or anyone else in the world) to understand the history and the connotation of the word enough to not say it, when it's still thrown around in rap songs and regular daily language by black people themselves.
Don't give me that "we're black, we can say it since it won't offend us when we say it" bullshit, because you don't see Asians calling themselves Chinaman or ching-chong people and be okay with others calling them that at the same time.

Either you use the n-word and be okay with others using it, or if you think it's racist, you don't use the word in the first place.
This entire post became irrelevant the moment she started using the n-word herself and sunk to name-calling - sounds like she could have handled the situation more maturely in the first place, didn't, and is now ranting about how racist everyone in the world is.

They should've said don't use that word. I don't get why they didn't say that to LE. Both hosts have lived in the US so you would think they'd say something.

I gagged at the first sentence. Can't the OP talk about the issue at hand without lifting her own throne, like REAL investigative journalists do?

" 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."

ngl I pretty much just died in your arms tonight.

thank you for making my xm-asssss.

I have no words to describe how terrifying, foolish and disgusting this comparison is.
You are as ignorant and insensitive as those people you mention.
11th_dance 26th-Dec-2012 11:19 am (UTC)

what Hitler did and what happened during the concert / OP's bad experience are drastically different, they aren't even on the same level ffs. if the OP's trying to say that kpop's racist like how Hitler's racist then the title is way way way way waaaaaaay off.

Cultural appropriation is not the same as racism.

I find it difficult to take this article serious by the lack of objectivism by the "journalist" and by the fact that she clearly does not understand the difference between cultural appropriation and racism.

It's a shame, as I would have liked to read a well argumented article on racism in Korea.
love_keiko 26th-Dec-2012 08:31 pm (UTC)
cultural appropriation is a microagression of racism. just like white privilage, white washing, fetishizing, and colorism.

Just curious OP: If you think Big Bang is so awful and racist, why did you go and see them twice? How does going to an event of people who offend you, your people, and your "sisters and brothers" in other minorities in any way help things? Did you sit there and frown at them the whole time?

To anyone who went and saw BB and is complaining about how awful they are in this post: Why did anyone who think Big Bang is so offensive and went to see them go and see them, especially if you paid money for the tickets (I know OP didn't)? If you find this group so hateful and rude, why would you contribute to their continuing existence by giving them funding?

What are any of you who find K-Pop so racially insensitive doing to try and change it aside from complaining on Omona? This is a serious question.

For OP: Wouldn't it be more helpful to your cause of promoting the equality and rights of your people to stage a protest instead of actually going to the concert? Maybe call your local government and complain about them giving a permit to perform to a group that promotes racial insensitivity? Start a petition to send to YG in which you outline the group's offensive behavior and ask them to stop? Alert local newspapers and organizations about these issues and get them to do a story on it (if you want to be a journalist, and a CREDIBLE journalist mind you, this would be an excellent way to establish contacts in the industry)?

You want to point out offensive behavior and help your people whom you feel are mistreated in the world. That's great; definitely a worthy cause. However, you, and many of the posters in this thread, need to give much more consideration to how you present yourselves and your arguments if you ever want to be taken seriously and actually cause real chance to happen. Real journalism, good journalism, is supposed to present stories objectively. It is also typically sujbect to an editorial process, which you would definitely benefit from (or at least don't point out the bad grammar of others when you are using bad grammer yourself). If you want to be a "journalist" in the sense of one who produces only sensationalist tabloid fodder or cable news network worthy vitrolic, then keep doing what you are doing. If you want to change the world in a positive and meaningful way, you are very much in need of a revision of your style.

Bc dummy there's a difference between enjoying shit that you acknowledge is problematic and excusing problematic shit bc you enjoy it.

You have enough intelligent ppl here who get that and call out racism, sexism, ableism, fatphobia, homophobia, etc but still listen to kpop or engage in any fandom

of people with african heritage for inflicting you guys with this moron

bulleusekat 26th-Dec-2012 11:34 am (UTC)
You are showing even more ignorance and insensitivity by using Hitler as a reference. Thank god your journalistic "skills" will never be acknowledged.

What's the problem with the N word being said by a bunch of korean people that have no idea of what it really means ? As a native french speakers I once read the expression "fo shizzle ma nizzle" and had absolutely no idea what it meant, so I went on google to search for an answer. And that's what I found :

"fo shizzle ma nizzle" is a bastardization of "fo' sheezy mah neezy" which is a bastardization of "for sure mah nigga" which is a bastdardization of "I concur with you whole heartedly my African american brother"

And you know what's the best ? I believed it ! I thought that Nigga meant "My african american brother" and it took me months to realise that Nigga was probably from the word Nigger which meant "nègre" in french ! You can't expect from people that live in korean, a country where there is a very,very,very little proportion of people of color and where english is used in the weirdest way possible, to actually be culturally sensible about stuff like that ? That would be great but I don't think it's gonna happen any time soon.
