Its hard cause, unless we were born multi ethnic or just use perms, we will either still have darker skin than most women in Korea.Also there is still, even though I've had so many people try and the whole (excuse my French ladies) Bullshit over and over again, "its a new generation, racism doesn't even exist anymore, get over it""What racism?
And a few like "ew why would want to date someone who would be Loud and ghetto"It irked me, but then i thought about it til this day, even after that show aired, he was loud, and a bit whacky too, and random. So that fan was rolling in some stupidity that day. There are Japanese Black girls, Korean Black girls, etc etc. And you can see how she thrived and overcame the racism from her peers. Thanks for writing this though, I'm mixed race but I look more white than black, but sometimes racist jokes made in kpop do hurt.
What do you guys think, please don't be disrespectful, be open minded. im african American, white, native american, and a little latino. If K fans have a problem with idols dating outside of the race, then they are not true fans. I'm very glad and proud of you to come out and make these things aware because most people with darker skin tones do think like this and its a shame I am African American and although I am asexual and I don't dream about me hooking up with them it still hurts to see comments from others saying that type of stuff and I feel like it's not very fair.
I think that they should date outside the race because normally when asked for ideal type its white skin and all. I have a thick waist and hips and im proud, even when they say they prefer long legs, and thin limbs. You can't discriminate against a race who is dating your men. I would have never had the courage to say this because I'm afraid of the outcome, there is a lot of nasty rude people in the world and I just appreciate this post.
I also love SHINee, Jonghyun being my personal interest along with Taemin, and sometimes onew and key, or on a special day Min Ho lol.
P then, GD, but then i fell for angel DAESUNG and still til this day, i love him.
I can freely say all of this, and since kpop is going viral, worldwide, fans of all ethnic and different backgrounds come together to sing in a language we probably know or have NO clue how to speak in, or maybe just the basics, where we only sing what we think we hear lol.
But enough of that, as a fan of kpop, we and millions would truly want to know, will kpop idols date outside of their ethnic, experience a new background, something different, most the times i hear they would date, westerns if they could, or they would date out rheir race, but it's a let down when some of the artists i like go for the fair skin, long hair, green or blue eyed beauty. I, African American, feel sad about it, but i know deep down inside, there is plenty of non idol men who might like women of color.
Do back to the things i wanted to explain before, when ever an idol, express their love for different races they always for fair toned when, even Beyonce shes still darker shade and all, but what about Lauryn Hill, India Arie, or more specifically Lupita Nyong'o. I think that inter-racial relationships would be flipping adorable.
To me they seem way to scared to voice their opinions because of most fan girls reactions will be pretty harsh and disgusting. Well ive had my share of shawol fangirls ive ran into at ALLKPOP's site when SHINee's Kim KEY Kibum where to appear on the show, and at that time no one knew who he was going actually pick, or who the producer might pick, so i insisted on something different, while the fans were posting mostly korean-japanese-Chinese or rvrn European women. You are too old schooled to be thinking like it's the Joseon's era. I'm straight the whitest white girl there ever was but I find Asians more attractive than Caucasians.
I took a leap of faith and posted (not in these specific words but similar)It would be nice for a change tp see a Brazilian women, or a African American women, or Spanish women, to be keys date since he is quite the happy type seemed he would be the real chill type of guy. (Maybe that explains why I'm here lol) But seriously my take on it is if two people like each other, they oughta get together. I understand a lot although I am the "whitest" in my family the blackside I still think Korea needs to be more educated in how to respect other countries opinion and actions and also to be taught that staring openly and being racist isn't funny although that's how they view it. Black people always be getting the racism issues the most, but hopefully in time more and more countries like South Korea may become more accepting of different races. I remember SHINee appeared on a show (I forget what it was), where they had a variety of women from different countries as guests.
Then the replies were just so.disgusting, and rude, and vile."Nooooo, if that happens, they might make him drunk, and try to fuck him for national recognition or child support. If you go on youtube and watch Blasian family videos, you can see how happy they are. As much as I love Korea not everything is as perfect as it seems and I hope Korea can accept diversity since they are getting more attention for their music As an African-American myself i've also had this thought process when watching kpop. The host asked Onew which women he thought was the most beautiful, and he said he thought the black girl was the prettiest.
