I AM VERY SORRY IF YOU WERE INVITED AND THIS TOPIC OFFENDS YOU, I WAS JUST TRYING TO SHED LIGHT ON A SITUATION THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT. PLEASE READ ALL THIS BEFORE COMMENTING. THANK YOU. INVITE AS MANY PPL AS POSSIBLE PLEASE!!!!!!!!
I wanted to talk about this earlier but I didn't know how to handle it but I'm fed up, seeing that they are continuing with their problematic behaviors.
So there is this romanian show that started to get on my nerves since it started airing like 8 years ago i think.
Everyone liked it and stuff but i couldn't just vibe with it, d'you know what i mean? i just h a t e d it. My elementary school teacher liked it and she told everyone how amazing she thought this show was.
It's called "Te Cunosc De Undeva" and the name literally means "I know you from somewhere" aka you look familiar, like we met before. And in this show romanian singers were given another artist to imitate. They dressed up like that artist and stuff. And you know how ignorant romania is if you've been friends with me for some time.
Guess what happened? *sips tea*
you're (hopefully) right! Bc they're in romania they thought they could get a pass and promote cultural appropriation, blackface and racism on NATIONAL TV.
Yeah, you heard that right. NATIONAL FLIPPIN TV.
So, I've seen comments from actually educated ppl that called out the show, but they were in english. Which says a lot. It means some of you all found this crap and actually tried to do something about it, like criticize it and call it out. Romanian comments are either some normal ppl that are calling out the show for making fun of black people and other cultures in general, but most of them are just like, "oh but the blackface was like years ago." UM NO SIS, JUST BECAUSE IT WAS YEARS AGO DOESN'T MEAN IT WAS OKAY. AND LEMME TELL YOU THERE IS A CLIP OF THEM DRESSING UP AS A BLACK RAPPER AND PAINTING THEIR FACE BLACK AND STUFF (It was Snoop Dogg i think). YEAH, VERY NORMAL. (NO ITS NOT)
Seeing ppl laughing it off disgusts me.
*Accidentally but not really spills tea* We have a racism problem too but nobody talks about it
guys, this is serious! Ppl here are disgusted by absolutely everyone with a darker skin complexion. they make them out to be criminals, homeless etc like WHAAAT?!
Some "transformations" you should look up on YouTube for some context-
Every Nicki Minaj "transformation" - blackface + saying the word
Side to side (Ariana Grande) "transformation" - for the cringe, mostly
The Snoop Dogg one from like 1 week ago that proves the fact that they won't stop.
They did blackface saying they're imitating Obama (?) *I am actually confused and my eyes are hurting*
AND TO END THIS ONCE AND FOR ALL, RANT IN THE COMMENTS AND LET'S CREATE A HASHTAG!!!!!!
ALSO, PLS TELL WHERE I CAN MOVE OUT (LIKE WHAT COUNTRY) ASAP
