Watching CNN’s “Who’s Black in America” and a 7 yr old said she’s ugly because she has dark skin and wants to be light. Ughh. That broke my heart.
Colorism is the devil!
Black Kpop Fans: In response tp Kpop stars saying Nigga-blkshineegirl
I hate that word and don’t even like when black folk say it. BUT…if I had to make an exception, it would be Zico. See, Zico is as good as a brotha in my eyes so I mean… even if he’s not physically black or anything, he totally has street cred in my opinion. Now, that’s not to say that it’s okay…
I respectfully disagree with you. I don’t think ANYONE should use it, no exceptions. Black, White, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, Mexican, etc. To me the word is disrespectful and using it doesn’t make you seem cool or a badass, it just makes you look ignorant. I like Zico also and think he’s a good guy but Kpop and non Kpop starts shouldn’t use it, but I know a lot of them don’t know the history behind it and just say it b/c their fav American rappers say it.
Here’s a poem that’s powerful and thought provoking that I found on youtube:
Julian Curry: Niggers, Niggas, and Niggaz
Black Kpop Fans: I have gotten used to asian people (with light skin) getting annoyed...
I have gotten used to asian people (with light skin) getting annoyed about the sun and getting dark. Since I’ve had many asian friends who were like that I know that they don’t mean in anyway “ugh elyssa i don’t want to be dark like you” its just that being dark is seen as poor. You are dark…
Hmm I get what you mean, but the fact that they even feel that dark=poor is messed up. Its and example of shadeism and I don’t get down with shadeism.
I think if I wanted to got to bat for him and say “he ment that it may be a disadvantage to others because he may not get as many fans and endorsements” I could but ultimately I don’t like the fact that they have negative perspectives about what they percive to be “dark” skin (which is usually just a tan).
There are many different types of skin tones that exist in every ethicity and for him to say that is just ignorant.
So I feel you but still

YASSS!! She’s amazing!
Why when someone refers to a genre that black people dominate in, they always have to put “black” in front of it. Like Black music, Black comedy, Black dancing. I mean music is music dance is dance and comedy is comedy.
