Id heard of blackface being viewed as a form of appreciation is Asia but I guess I just didn't believe it...Since it's rather old video, blackface has only become known concept recently outside of USA. Well it's still not that known, it's sth you can still see in the tv as well as people dressed as some other racial stereotypes. Two years back major Finnish company had to apologize for including blackface in advertisement based on Finnish Christmas fairy tale. Regardless the apology, the Christmas act is still being done with blackface as it's traditionally done..
So anyways i'd guess JYP had no idea this would be seen as blackface and sth racist and bad. I think kpop companies are getting more and more aware of these things anyways, as is rest of the world. I don't personally think there is point to dig old vids and pics of people doing blackface and calling it out ^^;
Well although it's not recognized as blackface it can be still used to make fun of black people and be ignorant, so i don't think it's good thing, but i don't think many did know there wasn't sth wrong with that either. So usually i don't really get angry over it since chances is they had no idea.Id heard of blackface being viewed as a form of appreciation is Asia but I guess I just didn't believe it...
As usual, JYP is weird af
