SHINee ignites RACIST scandal with anti-Native American performance

Boy band "SHINee" from SM Entertainment has been spotted being RACIST in a new performance in Fukuoka, Japan.

The boys are seen in the beginning being attacked by some supposive Native Americans who are dressed in tacky and stereotypical native outfits. They are then placed in shackles and taken captive by these backup dancers who are mocking the Native American culture. They make calls reminiscint of the time when Native Americans were jokes and ridiculed as barbarians. Onew and the boys then continue to dance with them in a Native-mocking fashion that is both untalented and unattractive and uncouth because of its racist undertones.

The video has already garnered 3 dislikes and it's becoming a major controversy on places like Twitter where one user said, "SHINee bein racist as fuck what else is new" and "u think after korea recognized their racism when i made my first editorial they change? no they just find another culture to degrade"

Another fan cam can be seen here:

i seriously CANNOT handle this right now. a public apology is needed right away by the racist group SHINee
patentpending 11th-May-2012 05:45 am (UTC)
They're not going to apology, they never do. The one time a variety show "apologized" for a black face incident, it was the typical "sorry you were offended because you just didn't understand the joke" bullshit. Other than that, when they are called out for things like this, they just ignore it, because obviously, if you ignore there's a problem, then it doesn't exist in the first place.~

THIS is exactly why i always thought kpop fans were racist. now i have proof
mayhemagenta 11th-May-2012 03:32 am (UTC)
I don't think it's right to assume that kpop FANS are racist, at least, not all of them. It's obviously out of line for SHINee to do something like this, but seeing as these are fancams that FANS are watching, don't you think it was probably a fan who called them out for racism?

It's really funny they keep doing this since T-ara got called out for this also on Yayaya.
If people didn't react well to T-ara, do you think they'll react well to this? LOL
glider 11th-May-2012 03:26 am (UTC)

I know its not the appropriate time but I need to get it off my chest...I am jealous of your user name!!!
kamelover101 11th-May-2012 03:40 am (UTC)
Plz get out of japan, we don't need your racism

Yes before i get called out, japan has its racists too, but at least japan acknowledges it and does something about it =_=

they also do blackface in public tv in this day and age.

gyuri 11th-May-2012 03:43 am (UTC)

I'm a fan of them and I'm just disappointed not only on them, but also for the company because it was being called out for a few times already. I know that they're not the one conceptualizing the performance, but I'm just frustrated that in the midst of their country's very advanced information technology, they still don't get themselves informed that these things are racist in nature.

As for people that says that K-Pop fans are racist, well you're also making a mistake out there. You are making hasty generalizations out there - some fans are racist but not all okay.

"Japan don't need this racism"

It's not just Japan, but the world doesn't need racism. Everyone should be educated - not just Korean or Japanese stars because the first step to stop racism is education.
kamelover101 11th-May-2012 03:44 am (UTC)
I know!!!
They have the worlds fastest internet, so ignorance is NO excuse =_=
also ppl are like they just developed 30 years ago so they still need time to learn!!

well lots of se asian countries aren't even developed yet, but we don't hear about these kind of racist stuff there, right?
kamelover101 11th-May-2012 03:42 am (UTC)
And I can't even at the comments on the video


maybecannotbe 11th-May-2012 02:49 pm (UTC)
lol IKR!
slave4food 11th-May-2012 03:45 am (UTC)
i think what makes this video even more appaling is the fact that in such an advanced technology civilization they chose to use the most low budget crude ways of displaying their racism. like SHINee was thinking "i want to be racist but i dont want to spend money on these worthless people". glad arama is finally revealing this bands true motives
