    So Jinwoo from Winner wore a shirt with the confederate flag on it.

    As a black female, this is upsetting but I'm not mad at Jinwoo, I'm mad at whoever put him in the shirt. I just think it's insensitive and yes I know not everyone knows America's history but I'm just saying. I have a right to be upset about it. I'm not gonna unstan tho.

    But what makes me more upset is when a black K-pop fan says they're upset about something and another black K-pop fan is like, "WELL I'm black and I don't care." Or when a non-black person tells us not to be upset and I'm just dumbfounded.

    But anyway, black K-pop fans how do yall feel about this?

    Probably doesn't know what it meant and just thought it looked cool to be honest, Tzuyu wore a shirt when covering Gee with GFriend that said "Hoes take off your clothes"

    I don't think it's too hard to make a little bit of research before putting someone on clothes that has simbols or flags on it, espeially if famous people are the ones using it.

    I had no idea what flag was that.

    Not everybody needs to know other's history tho, for example, you cant know the story of my flag or the things you shouldnt use.

    this already happened with yeeun from clc, honestly.... if korea doesn't understand why blackface is problematic then i guess i can't expect them to know about the confederate flag. who i think is actually at fault is damn distributor who made the shirt!! because they for damn certain knew what it meant.

    asians worship white supermcy , they even had white supermicy through cast system even way before they come in contact with europeans , east asians including indians are the most racist in history , people just are ignorant to that truth cuz people tend to ignore history of other nations and only focus on westren history .

    Ehh, I think being offended depends on where you live. A lot of people where I live of many different races use that flag as a cultural and regional pride symbol. A lot of southern black rappers wear it so they might think it is a Hip hop thing in Korea.

    How is an Asian Caste system that was invented before they came into contact with White people, White supremacy?

    I know they probably didn't know what it meant but I mean I have a right to feel a little upset right? I'm just saying especially because I live in the south and racism is still very much alive I'm just sad to see the flag in kpop

    I agree with you but the flag is everywhere in the South. People seem to equate it with Southern pride. At least that is why a lot Southern rappers use it.

    Not supporting it btw. I live in the North, in a big city and I think the confederate flag should be burned.

    I understand why people are angry. I would get pissed too if it's something that has caused a lot of suffering, aware or unaware. YG should issue an apology. I don't think they acknowledged past instances as well (?).
