(Image description: Kpop star G-dragon in blackface while wearing a hoodie allegedly in “homage” to the iconic image of Trayvon Martin in a hoodie)
I feel like every single day there is yet more confirmation to me of why I don’t really listen to kpop much at all anymore. So much cultural appropriation and a lot of antiblackness as well from the idols and the fandom world, and this is particularly the case from YG Ent. Then of course there is G-dragon who is arguably one of the worst of all in the entire kpop world (although Tae-yang gives him a run for his money too). Allegedly this recently posted image from G-dragon is his black face homage to TRAYVON MARTIN.
Yes, a BLACK FACE homage to Trayvon.
What. The. Fuck.
No words necessary really. This is disgusting. And to any dumbass fans of his that might try to defend this (I’ve seen some saying that it’s a chemical peel?! Like what? Even so why would he be glamorizing the fact that his skin is that color in a photo and putting on a hoodie as well— hmmm I wonder?) just stop while you’re ahead because you’re racist and antiblack if you think that blackface is okay.P.S. even if it isn’t the alleged tribute to Trayvon. It’s still fucked up.
