can someone explain to hiphop inspired kpop groups that black children are not their easter eggs
Can someone explain to black kpop fans that when kpop stars travel outside of their own homogeneous country they can finally see children that don’t look…
Please read this comment by Jack-X-On. Let it really soak in.
"So when I travel to Asia it’s alright to look for an Asian kid and take a picture with him? Completely randomly just because I like kpop culture? I personally would find it offending, and this isn’t the first time bts has offended me but.. :/ thing is they like hip hop, and they think that anything/anyone black = hip hop. Ummm how about no. That’s like me saying i like kpop so I like everything Asian as well which is extremely wrong because not all Asians have anything to do with kpop. It looks like their using them as a prop, to make them seem more hip hop like. Rapmon did this before when he said his talent was speaking black like whut. And black people aren’t being sensitive about the issue, probably feeling disrespected, I’m sure you would feel the same way if someone disrespected your race like that. That’s all I have to say c:"
So…..lemme break this down for you, Jack-X-On and others who just don’t get it
From what I’ve gathered from your response to Ms. Cozette is that by taking a picture with an Asian person during your travels in an Asian country is some sort of proof that you are indeed in Asia not realizing that people of Asian descent live on almost every continent in the world. But going with your logic, if I traveled to S. Korea I will have to go on a “safari expedition” to locate a Korean person because Korean people are actually a rare sighting in S.Korea because that is literally what you assume Rap Monster is doing in L.A. Let us just ignore the fact that they were INVITED to work with producers like Warren G, Coolio, and other famous, world-renowned, OGs in Hip-Hop especially on the West Coast. Let us ignore the fact that these producers happen to be black because, you know, hip-hop, rap, and R&B were created by musicians who are…wait for it…Black Americans. Let us ignore the other fact that they are staying in LA a well mixed city which has a large population of Black, Latino, and Asia people so running into a Bangtan Boys fan of any of the aforementioned race is not so difficult to do. Finally, let us clearly bypass, swerve by, tumble along, hop, skip, and jump over the fact that maybe one of the producers or those part of the production crew have male black children (who remember are Black Americans) and was being adorable as children sometimes are that lead Kim Namjoon aka Rap Monster of Bangtan Boys to take a selca with him because OMG the child is super adorable and is now Rap Monster’s new friend. Are you mad or nah?
Allow me to bust wide open another one of your statements to reveal the ignorance that you unfortunately allow to fester and grow. ”Rapmon did this before when he said his talent was speaking black like whut” Like “whut” indeed. Kim Namjoon moment of ignorance which hopefully through this mentor-ship is not going to occur in the future is completely UNRELATED to taking a picture with a child. Darling, your arms must be hurting with how far you reached to make some sort of connection. Take rest, stretch a bit, find some common sense, then rethink this whole situation that was blown way out of portions.
Last one, liking kpop means that people will assume you love everything Korean not “Asian” because you were right (only time throughout that not so well put together paragraph) not all those of Asian descent likes Kpop. Just had to clear that one up, sounded to ignorant for me.
BTW, though this does not matter, both myself and Tracy Cozette are beautiful Black American women who happen to love Kpop and stan Bangtan Boys like no one’s business. c:
Check, point, and game.
