Subtle racism has been shown in studies to be far more taxing and damaging to the victim, compared to (non-physically violent) overt racism [APA, WebMD].
This blog is a safe space by, and for, people of color where they can share their experiences with everyday, subtle racism, or racial microaggressions.
Our main goal is to help people of color feel supported and validated in dealing with this insidious form of racism. We know how incredibly frustrating it is to have people doubt our experiences, so please be assured that you will always be believed here. No exceptions.
White people are welcome to follow and learn what subtle racism can look like and avoid doing it themselves, and stand up against it as allies.
Hyuna makes a new video featuring apes, monkeys and giant bananas galore. This is kpop, though, so of course between scenes of her riding giant bananas, running around with said apes and such she just has to throw in a black dancer dancing in a totally fetishized and exotified manner dressed with a leopard skin bandana around his head as well for maximum racist effect. The antiblackness in kpop really knows no bounds.
Not only do your “biases” make shitty music, half of which are terrible rip offs of black music anyway, but they are racist as fuck too. And all of you oppalogists who will inevitably flock to my inbox can just go to hell. Search my “kpop” tag and you will see the dozens of times I have dispatched with you and your flaccid excuses for blatant racism before. The moment that your stars actually start respecting and recognizing the full humanity of black people is the day we can talk. And Hyuna with this bullshit is exactly the reason that I rarely listen to kpop anymore.
