White privilege exist, change my mind.

  • no, they are not. :pepefacepalm: miguel angel silvestre is a white man from spain. i and now i know that you're trolling and i'm wasting my time with this discussion.

    when i looked them up it said mexican but that must have been the other guy. Well he is european which would make him white which means he had white privilege and again u have yet to show me proof on how it does not exist especially in your country when u already said that racism happens there when white privilege i a form of racism. I'm not trolling i genuinely want an answer you seem mad, EVERYTHING that you have said has no backbone because you have yet to provide me with any evidence on how to does not exist, like now you have the privilege to completely ignore racism because it doesn't negatively affect the white race because yall have never gone through something like that compared to POC who have to go through those type of thing every single day. Again this is your white fragility.


    i'm not talking about nationality privilege, nor economic privilege im talking about how white people (generally speaking) have privilege, would you like me to list them?




    can you acknowledge these

    white privilege is racism

    who said looking at black people was racist?

    i don't care where your from if u have european ancestry u r white.

    how does not it and again show proof

    i was talking about white privilege and you said this ¨

    in case incidents happens, which is REALLY rare, it's always reported in the news and we as a society always apologize to the victim and seek punishment for the racist.¨

  • Oh really? Since I'm white and Korean, please tell me how, honestly curious what you actually know about it

  • I'm white and Romanian. Our people were enslaved by the Turks, Polish and Austria-Hungary.

    We got our independence quite late and we had to fight for it.

    Even now, living in London. If I say I'm Romanian, I'm being told to go back to my country and to stop stealing their jobs.

    How it came about that people think Koreans through plastic surgery want to look white is because during the Korean war, a doctor was over there doing skin grafts, helping burn victims and this guy asked him if he could do his eyes to make them have double eyelids. The doctor did it, therefore revolutionizing the double eyelid procedure, and the reason everyone thinks they want to look white is because this doctor wrote a report on it, scientific procedure, saying how happy the guy was to finally look white.


    Koreans have always, for hundreds upon hundreds of years, had the beauty standard of pale skin, from almost 700 BC, before white people had ever made it to Asia. Pale skin meant you didn't have to work outside in the heat, it was a status thing when it started, not like 'oh pale skin is pretty' but more like 'oh that person's skin is pale, they don't work, so they are of high status'


    This has nothing to looking 'white', except maybe the army men, but that was what, a hundred years ago, barely even a dent in the Korean beauty standard's history.


    Also, excuse me, but here a lot of jobs want a photo before they will hire you, even though lots are trying to get rid of that practice, and because I'm white and I look white, have a white name, speak Korean with an Northern american accent, I have been turned down to my face for these reasons. And this is not just me, it is a constant struggle for white females to get work here, because we don't fit into their standards.


    White skin isn't what they are going for, they want PALE skin, and yeah my skin is white, but it ain't pale by any means. White people don't naturally have the small face or the jaw lines they want. Small noses, white people have bigger faces in most cases.


    Please, for the love of god, do more research, maybe actually talk to people living the experience before you pretend what you are saying is fact.

    which further proves my point on white privilege because you r white you have an advantage

    " there's a difference between being turned down because of language and being turned down because of race.

  • Please calm down :)

    The simple explanation: Rich people in Joseon didn't work in the fields. They were always under shade.

    So they all had fair skin (no tan).

    In Joseon and later Korean, pale skin means somebody of high status.

    Simple as that :) And it's not just SK, in China as well.

  • sorry if this comes off as rude but what are you trying to get from creating these threads and arguing with people who don't necessarily agree with your point of view?

  • Black people are not perceived at all in SK. They just are there.

    They care about Korean shade of color.

    It's classism not racism.
