Blackface is not okay. Blackface will never be okay. Blackface isn’t funny. Blackface is not fucking cosplay. Darkening your skin for the sake of a fucking joke is not funny. It’s not cute. It doesn’t make you cool. However, it is hurtful for black kpop fans to keep seeing this happen. It is annoying for black kpop fans to watch you defend your faves when they do problematic shit like this. It is a cause of anger in many black kpop fans who see their race turned into a fucking caricature.
It’s 2017 people can freely educate themselves on the internet about whether or not doing something is okay or not.
So you can casually miss me with that “oppa/unni didn’t mean it uwu” bullshit because yes they fucking did.
….sooo y'all just gon let Henry equate blackface - a historically racist portrayal of black people - to a blonde wig and cosplay? bye lol and don’t bring up any of that “he’s from Canada” “it’s different over there”
It’s 2017, he’s an intellectual adult, and reading and Google are free.
