Q&A How do Koreans react when they discover I'm black?

HELLO!!!! SOOO!!!!!!!
Recently people have been asking about my race/etc. And How Koreans act when they find out when I am black. SO, for everyone that didn’t know. I am black. LOL And, It seems like Korean people cannot wrap their minds around that fact.

When I tell them that I am black, they usually tell me NO!! and I HATE THAT! LOL I usually don’t mind things, but that does make me upset, a bit. SO THEN I BECOME LIKE MINA from Girl’s day Twinkle twinkle, and plot evil against them! LOL JOKE!! But really…..

It seems like in Korea people tend to think that if you are from a certain country then you should have certain features. If you don’t fit that mold then people think you are not “really” from there. They may think that your parents are from another country, etc.

For example, being American, you must have light hair and light eyes to be real American. SO, At work people think that I am not “real” American since I have dark hair. But I cannot speak for the whole of Korea, just me and my experiences! This is what I have experienced!

They usually think that I am either, Indian, Spanish, Moroccan, or from a Middle Eastern Nation. Which is Understandable. SInce people from those nations think I am from there sometimes. LOL

    It is not a crime to be black. African people have many color. Thinking Africa is poor is primitive away of thinking. It is not a crime if u are from Africa.

    Perhaps Koreans are thinking of Africans from Africa and those are very dark skinned people while you may have some of this and that from Mom and have been raised in the American Black culture so you identify with American Blacks. You feel Black, you are esencially Black….You appear to be very light skinned though and you probably fit in nicely in the Korean culture as they sure aren't White. It must be frustrating, you are beautiful.

    Real talk.
    It dosen't matter if ur black or white. You look white, in many cases I "guess" you are treated as white. That's what being black is about, how you are treated.

    Im 50/50 Haitian-Bantu/European. I'm very dark and people identify me as black. That's when u are black and have to endure a type of inequality only black people experience due to racism.

    Good you are aware of ur roots, if we all were there would only be one race, and that would not be defined by our colors!

    Technicly white ppl have neandertal DNA. Bantu people don't.
    Recent research points to that white ppl comes from Bantu people intermingle with neandertal. Thefore white ppl = Hybrid. Very cool.
    But we are all gods people. And that's all that matters.

    This is what I get when I tell people I'm half Asian lmao I look completely white. The only time someone can tell I'm Asian is if they notice the very SLIGHT almond shape of my eyes. Other than that I'm called an Asian wannabe but like babe I think I know my own ethnicity lol.

    Itโ€™s crazy how Asians canโ€™t understand people can be multiple colors when Asians are multiple colors. Some Asians are dark and some are light. They need to stop with this BS. I have seen plenty of dark Asians they are usually poor and not using lighting creams.

    I know this video is like 5 almost 6 years old and I'm super behind so forgive me. I for some reason thought you were from California and were mixed. Not only are you a Southern girl lol but your not mixed at all. Not that it matters to me your personality is why I'm a follower lol just cool fun facts. It is also nice to hear you tall about it too.

    So my mom is African American and my dad is Trinidadian..(most of my mom and dads side are light skin). I am a light shade of brim like Iโ€™m lighter than Rihanna but almost the same shade… My friend thought I was mixed and then someone said this I was Spanish… I was like Iโ€™m black.. Someone asked which one of my parents were white I said neither and they were shocked…

    regarding 07:03 I AGREE! I'm African because I was born there, and have lived there my whole life, but whenever I tell online people that, they think I'm lying or something because I happen to be super European. (My profile photo)
    It gets really annoying sometimes, trying explain myself over and over again… Also they like to assume that if you're living in Africa, a lion lives in your backyard or something. XD
    It can be funny sometimes

    Hell, if Drew Carey said he was black, there would be some black person arguing you down to the ground, saying that him and Mariah were brother and sister.
