I feel like I need to let this out. I recently have been seeing cultural appropriation in k-pop and I'm disgusted. The fact the black culture influenced k-pop but Koreans hate on us for being a certain color is just disturbing. I've gotten more educated on these sides of k-pop groups who have discriminated black culture. Bts included. They have said some racial slurs and got away with it. Black English is not a thing people can make fun of. I am disappointed in army's because they hid all this away from new army's. They keep saying they are uneducated and don't know any better but they also hold them like their gods. Army's are toxic, being a black army and then seeing this side of k-pop is sad. I thought I good enjoy music but I need to get aware of things like this. Go on youtube and get educated on stuff like this. When black stans see something like cultural appropriation happen we get triggered and have to voice our opinions on it. The fact that the Twitter war with army was sad. People need to get woke on situations like this. Discriminating someone because of their skin color is awful. People will call you ugly but take our style and think its ok. People overall need to stop babying these idols they know what they do but stay ignorant of what they caused. People may say we are sensitive about is but if no one did it then we wouldn't be on topics like this. Its sad how fans still act as if the idol has every right to do it. There is a difference between appreciating culture and appropriating it. Pls I beg of y'all get educated and don't justiftly bad actions just because your idol is doing it.
@chickenstarr I went to check this out... I am beyond heartbroken... Thank you for posting this... For... Trying to educate people... I really am disappointed beyond explanation. And it's great that I at least went to see it with my own eyes. And as a black "army" (I might not even consider myself anymore) my heart just clenched with every joke that disrespected my skin color and the struggles of black people everywhere. This is beyond culture appropriation this is human disrespect... Lowering an entire race for something as insignificant as the color of the skin... I might have written a lot but am speechless, disgusted and I really need sometime away from them... Not BTS alone, them all... The entire industry even. I have a really wierd feeling now. Am glad am educated about this though. Thank you sister
