For those who confuse “could care less” and “couldn’t care less” here is the greatest unprofessional chart you will ever see.


One of my biggest fucking pet peeves is when people misuse these terms.

If they don’t introduce a new POC soon I swear I’m just gonna quit and I don’t mean any of that ambiguously brown, maybe she is or maybe she’s just tan type nonsense. I mean a real, official this is exactly what race she is WOC!

Kim Wonjung by Zo Sunhi for Vogue Korea September 2014
please read the original caption of the photo below.
“세상의 모두 피부는 아름답다. 하얀 피부든 검은 피부든 상관없다. 김원중은 어떤 그림을 그려도 완벽하게 그려지는 마법의 캔버스 같은 모델이다. 나는 그의 모습 속에 검고 흰 두 사람이 존재하는 듯 보이길 바랐다. 그러면서도 아름답게.” ━ 사진가 조선희

This is blackface. This is clear and blatant blackface and instead of this mess here are some actual mixed Black Koreans who could have posed holding hands or something.
1. Insooni

2. Yoon Mirae or Tasha Reid

3. Sonya, or Kim Son Hee

4. Lee Michelle

5. Ameriie

There’s probably more. 
Any of these people could have done the job with more grace and beauty.

How is this blackface? They used the side of his face as a canvas to paint another man on and they probably chose KWJ because he’s known for having very pale skin (like canvas). They are trying to say that skin is beautiful even if it’s the palest of pale or the darkest of dark. The makeup isn’t supposed to make him look like a black man, it’s supposed to show two people being displayed by the same model. Do black people only have half a face? Do you think a half black Korean holding hands with a half white Korean would have the same impact? Actually the fact that he’s Korean seems irrelevant to me anyway. Look at the other images from this series. Jesus Christ only tumblr could get mad at this.

“세상의 모두 피부는 아름답다. 하얀 피부든 검은 피부든 상관없다. 김원중은 어떤 그림을 그려도 완벽하게 그려지는 마법의 캔버스 같은 모델이다. 나는 그의 모습 속에 검고 흰 두 사람이 존재하는 듯 보이길 바랐다. 그러면서도 아름답게.” ━ 사진가 조선희
I feel that this quote needs to be translated in order to understand the context of this particular body of work. 
"All the world’s skin tones are beautiful. White skin, black skin, doesn’t matter. Kim Wonjung is like a magical canvas that turns out perfectly no matter what he models for. I wanted to display the dark side and light side of my subject to show two sides of a person embodied in one. And to do so beautifully." 
-Photographer Jo Seonhui. 

Sooooo because I don’t feel like being talked down as if I don’t know the fucking context of why the photographer did this crap by someone who labels himself as “Upper-class sociopath”, and because I don’t like people who assume I don’t know my own fucking native language, here’s basically a Korean & English smackdown of people who keep doing this crap. 
1. The photographer’s intention does not absolve the fact that this is literally blackface. The context does not matter. It is still racially discrimination in that it does not use a dark skinned person-it is still brown paint or makeup put on a light skinned person’s body. You’re not treating darker skinned people as real actual people.
사진가가 무엇을 바라고 했는지, 전혀 중요하지 않습니다. 그것과 상관 없이 blackface, 즉 흑인으로 분장하는 것입니다. 실제 검은 피부를 가진 사람을 쓰지 않았고 분장을 통해서 메시지를 전달하려고 했는데, 이건 실제 검은, 혹은 까무잡잡한 사람들을 실제 사람으로 보지 않고 분장을 사용하는 것으로써 인종차별적 요지가 있습니다. 사람이 아니라 분장으로 치부하는 거니까요. 
2. Even if we disregard the long and racist history of blackface, which shouldn’t be disregarded in this conversation, colorism and antiblackness both affect darker skinned people, whether it be darker skinned koreans or black/brown people, negatively in Korea. As such, the model has the ability to scrub off his makeup at the end of the day and go on his daily life being pale skinned. People with actual dark skin do not. You really don’t think this is discriminatory at all?
흑인 분장과 관련된 인종차별적 역사에 대해 다루지 않겠다, 라고 해도, 물론 다뤄야 하는 것이지만, 컬러리즘, 즉 피부톤에 따른 차별과 반흑인적 인종차별은 모두 한국에서 까무잡잡한 피부를 가진 사람들에게 영향을 줍니다. 그렇기 때문에 여기에서 쓰인 김원중씨는 모델로써 촬영 후에 분장을 지우고 뽀얀 피부를 지닌 채로 돌아다닐 수 있는 특권을 가지고 있습니다. 실제 까무잡잡한 피부를 가진 사람들은 그렇지 못하는데 말입니다. 이게 차별이라는 생각이 들지 않으십니까?
3. Now let’s get into the history of blackface. It’s historically been used in minstrel shows in the U.S to make fun of Black people-typically the white performer would don black makeup to look like a black person, do “stereotypical” Black things to gain laughs from the crowd. Consequently the image associated with blackface has been used to make fun of Black people, and made into caricatures. 
This would have nothing to do with Korea….except that when the Korean War happened, and before that with the introduction of American media to Korean audiences through books and such, blackface was introduced into Korea, and is still being used today for cheap laughter. Example: The bubble sisters. 

흑인 분장의 역사를 보면 이걸…민스트럴 쇼라고 번역해야 하나…미국에서 백인이 얼굴을 검게 분장하고 흑인 풍의 노래나 춤같은걸 하면서 흑인 노예의 삶을 희화하하는 이런 쇼같은데에서 주로 썼습니다. 때문에 여기에서 주로 쓰인 분장-피부를 검게 칠하고 입술을 붉게 칠하거나 혹은 검은색으로 칠하고, 등등-의 이미지가 흑인들을 비웃고 차별하는데에 쓰이고 하나의 캐리커쳐로 만들어졌습니다. 
이건 한국과 상관 없다고 생각하실 수가 있는데, 한국전쟁 이후 그리고 그 전에 미국에서 책이나 방송등을 통해 미국 문화가 들어오면서 흑인 분장같은게 자연스럽게 받아들여지게 되었고, 현재까지 웃음을 유발하는 소재로 쓰이고 있습니다. 예로 버블시스터즈가 있습니다
4. I don’t know what’s so revolutionary about this idea that we should use darker skinned models. They are actual people with actual skins that highlight how beautiful it looks on a human body. Pouring darker paint on a light skinned person isn’t going to show that. And darker skinned models, or just any darker skinned person in Korean media is rarely featured anyways, so this would have been the perfect chance for some representation. 
검은 피부를 가진 모델을 쓰자는게 뭐가 그리 힘듭니까? 실제 사람을 사용해 실제 피부가 어떻게 생겼는지 보는게 낫지 않습니까? 뽀얀 피부에 분장을 한다고 정말 사람의 피부를 제대로 표현할 수 있다고 생각하지도 않고, 실제 사람을 쓰는게 훨씬 더 자연스럽지 않습니까? 그리고 한국 언론이나 영상매체에서 피부가 검은 사람들을 자주 쓰는 것도 아니기 때문에, 유빈이나 이효리밖에 생각나는 사람이 없네요,  대표로 보여주기 위한 좋은 기회였습니다. 
5. There are already work like this that’s far more tasteful. 
이미 주제를 훨씬 더 잘 표현한 작품들이 많습니다. 

So no, there’s absolutely no need for fucking blackface. 
-admin J

I love how non-black people are the one’s who get offended over stuff like this.

It IS disrespectful and as a Korean person I’m offended and ashamed that another Korean would spread this kind of disrespect. My opinion is still valid because this is my culture and I understand that there is a lot of anti-black and colorism within East Asia, in this case Korea. But if you want more POC’s opinions  just ask around like whitepeoplestealingculture or just do research on it. There are articles by African American and Black Americans on why black face is wrong. 

As a black person, I /am/ offended over this, thank you.
