Hey guys! So, uh, I’ve been thinking it over for a while, and I’ve come to my decision finally.

I’m gonna be deleting this blog.

Now!! Don’t worry, I’m not leaving Tumblr or going anywhere. I’m merely going to pretty much restart everything, and start up new and fresh. I have my own reasons for this, consisting of just wanting to erase any embarrassing things I’ve done, and a lot of bad memories. There’s simply just some people I want to move on from, especially those who have already done so themselves.

So, a week or two from now, I’m gonna be deleting this blog, and going to my new blog, vanellathefirst. Very kingly, suits me well B)

So, that’s basically it! I’ll be updating you daily!

TLDR- The Countries listed are:

  • Germany
  • Russia
  • Greece
  • Spain
  • Italy
  • Thailand
  • China
  • South Korea

Makes me not wanna go to any of these places.

Basically. I’ve been to Germany, Thailand, Italy, and Spain and I can vouch for this.

The locals will “act” polite for a time, but most of the time you’ll be ignored and passed over for service or help, or they’ll be outright rude.

I remember in Greece my dad and I politely asked a lady to take our picture and she cursed us out and told us to go back to Africa. Like she really thought we were African immigrants in the country instead of American tourists.

In Italy they only like a certain type of Black person, and that’s as close to Eurocentric as possible.

Germany should be self-explanatory.

The bottom line is, people from these countries love coming to Africa as expats to lord it over the locals, but God forbid we come to their respective countries as tourists.

I was born in korea and i visited last year so i can vouch for the korean one. For some reason Koreans has a very negative views on Black people or the culture.
Koreans tend to relate gang violence, drug using, and ignorant rappers as ALL black people.

Its kinda sad to see. I remember waiting for a bus and this guy (african american) who was standing in line for a bus. and this middle aged lady picked a fight with him because she claimed that he cut in line.

I didnt know if he did or not, but her reaction just seemed too extreme to a person who spoke little to no Korean. It was as if she felt threatened or even scared by him. And keep in mind, this guy wasnt wearing anything that would make anyone think that he was a violent gang member. He was just wearing a simple collard shirt with jeans. And thankfully, he politely smiled and let the women go in front of him after I helped translate.

The most shocking part was that the lady said somewhere along the line of
"These black people, why are they here in our country" in a very disgusted tone.

Now Im usually very proud of Koreans and Korean culture, but the racism and even homophobia they have there is shockingly disgusting. and surprisngly, even koreans living in America has similar, maybe less extreme, stereotypical identification of black people. If i had to put my two cents on this matter, I would probably blame it on the media and also the LA riot, which involved alot of Korean store owners also. And according to alot of media and cartoons, they depict black people has very aggressive and easily agitated. 

so.. if you are black and you happen to visit korea, there WILL be alot of racism, even subtle ones. But thankfully, some will be polite and accepting. 

This shits on my bucket list.

Been to Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, South Korea (Currently living), Thailand, And China.

Didn’t notice any in my travels outside of China…but living in South Korea I can see it. I believe it for the other countries. Just really sucks that it has to be that way.

Planning on moving to Berlin in July and I’m pretty nervous about hatred towards blacks. ;/

For some reason Koreans has a very negative views on Black people or the culture. Koreans tend to relate gang violence, drug using, and ignorant rappers as ALL black people.”

It’s because of American imperialism essentially; when Americans came over to Korea they basically brought all their racist anti-black views with them including movies, shows, and the comedy (depicting black people as violent, aggressive, hypersexual, use of blackface, etc) so we basically saw those and thought, “Thats how black ppl must be.”To some degree, also the black American soldiers who came to live/stayed in the military bases as well. So I think because of the US military being so involved with Korea in the past and coming over, I think (imo) that our people have somewhat been obsessed about Americans? Entertainment wise; i can definitely see some of the rappers in Korea or K-Pop being really obsessed with black culture. The notion of “wanting to be black but not actually black” is definitely strong esp in the K-pop industry. 

This is not an excuse or anything; since you were wondering why I thought I’d just fill you in. What you said in your post about Korea is pretty much spot on. 

(there are others here who can really get into the details but I’m just kind of scratching the surface of the history)

Your name is JADE. You have just woken from a restful nap, and as usual, you have no recollection of having fallen asleep. You have quite a number of INTERESTS. So many in fact, you have trouble keeping track of them all, even with an assortment of COLORFUL REMINDERS on your fingers to help you sort out everything on your mind. 

Tumblr is doing awful things to the resolution on these, please full view!

Everyone needs to calm down about ebola. Is it an epidemic that needs to be taken seriously? Yes, at least in Africa. But people don’t understand that you actually need to be in contact with a person’s bodily fluids (spit, urine, semen, etc.) or blood in order to contract the disease.

I’m not sure if I ever told you guys, but I’m going to Animate!Miami this year! It’s gonna be from November 14-16, and I’m going for the weekend. Saturday I’m gonna be there as Aradia, and Sunday I’m gonna be there as Bee. I’ll be posting completed cosplays later this month~
