i hate how some kpop editors still whitewash after they know they whitewash
I don’t like calling specific people out but to give an example tumblr user dazzlingkai would be one
if some of you haven’t seen her edits i will show you
here is an edit dazzlingkai made of taemin, i mean look at this idk what i am looking at??? am i looking at a jar of mayonnaise?? am i looking at a ghost???
some people might say,“ oh me so dum me cant tell the difference in his actual skin tone and this pic, gimme sum evidence that this is whitewashed” so i can tell you that he definitely did not look like this during his performance. to support my claim i have a picture of him on the same day
wowow look at that, i can actually see his face in this picture!! So yes, she did whitewash taemin in that edit cause he sure as heck does not look the same in these two pictures does he???
as some people might say,“ wow me sum dum i cunt beleib that its whitewashed gimme more evidence"
and here i have another picture showing how dazzlingkai whitewashes her edits or more of whitewashing taemin
what am i looking at??? where are my sunglasses??? taemin might as well blend in the white screen on a new tab!! his shirt is as white as his face in this whitewashed edit
wow look at that blends right in
anyways heres a picture of him on the same day at the same radio show
look at that major difference, wowow i can see your face taemin!!
again there might be people saying,"oh meh gawd im still so dum i cunt see that this is whitewashing give me more proof so it can suck in this brain i apparently dont have"
look at this, this isnt even a natural skin tone. how are you going to make taemin look like this????? when he actually looks like this??
wow look thats him on the same day, cant believe at how white she made him? me neither!
and i do know that taemin whitens his face himself as well so editing probably makes his face whiter. But there is an extent to how white his face can get. Examples of really whitened are the pictures above. Some ideal editing when taemin whitens his face are
and even this
in conclusion you can see that many people still like to whitewash even though it looks really horrible????? i cant see any of idols faces in whitewashed pictures just like i cant see those people’s editing futures??? well unless they change their method
woah woah dont think i forgot about excuses for white washing, you thought i forgot didn’t you??
"oh me goash whitened picz look so much bettur on pastel themed blogs leik you don’t know"
um you can still edit a picture for pastel themed blogs? for example look at this picture
(credits to sugatrash for making this edit)
Wow look at that!! you can still make a pastel edit without whitewashing people!!
just a tutorial on how to do that because i know some of you whitewashers are too lazy to change your method, i have a link for you! Just click this
Basically, calling out whitewashing isn’t just "butthurt” people wanting to call out or hate other people’s edits. Whitewashing is actual serious business, guys! You may not notice when you reblog these pictures but changing the color of someone’s skin tone can hurt some people’s feelings. Colorism is prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group. Whitewashing is discriminating against people with darker skin colors. How, you ask? I mean come on, you are changing someone’s skin color just so the look of the person appeals to your standards of beauty. I’m pretty sure that is colorism, if that is not colorism I don’t know what is.
Even in asia they discriminate against people with dark skin. They have always favored lighter skin because back in the day if you had light skin it meant you didnt work and you were wealthy while the darker people worked and weren’t as wealthy and rather poor. But we, as fans, should appreciate the idols with darker skin tones and respect them by not lightening their skin in our edits. Also whitewashing only adds to the problem, and if you don’t see that then it’s because you haven’t experienced colorism the way so many people have. Whitewashing is really serious so i hope you take it serious too.
thank you for taking your time for reading this i hope you whitewashers change your ways and go on the right path. ill do some dua/prayer for you guys
