Justin Beiber should make a twitter comment about how every single person who said anything negative about Girls Generation should stop being his fan immediately. He's still trying to hold his standard. Miley on the other hand...

It's YouTube, I am not surprised.

While this is unacceptable behavior, some of you aren't much better by generalizing Americans based on the actions of a few asshats, judging a nation by the negative actions of a select few puts you on the same level as them, rise above it and deal with stupid people.

The fanbases are younger children, it's not surprising that they'd use racist comments with the intent to be funny, not fully aware that it's not as acceptable in public as with your close friends.

And then overall stupidity for the older crowd.

The amount of ignorance in those tweets is staggering.

Just goes to show you how much racists actually know about the people they hate.

Reminds of when I read an article about a school basketball game where a group of students were taunting the other teams Puerto Rican player with "Where's your green card?" Of course what they didn't realize is that Puerto Ricans are actually U.S. citizens.

But like others have said, these people aren't representative of Americans they're just a really loud minority, like those crazy funeral protesters from the WBC.

LOL at the "this is why America is hated by other countries". That actually doesn't even make sense. That's not the reason at all. I wont get into that though. I hate comments like this, but people will be people. I try to ignore them, and hopefully k-pop as a whole will too. I'm not sure how someone could say such mean things to someone, or even give that much of a shit about the god damn youtube awards. What a bunch of fucking clowns. These are the kinds of people that were ALWAYS racist, and just look for excuses to say any racist thing that they can.

I'm going to make sure that if I have kids, they are going to know the meaning of respect and dignity.

Except...
1. Koreans and Kpop fans are just as racist when they want to be as well.
2. This is the Internet (It's not an excuse but if you're still surprised by what you see then you need to log off).
3. Who are you to judge Americans, hell they might not even be American (I'm not) based on the words of a group of people
4. The Music industry isnt perfect, it has it's shitty moments no matter where, asia, america, europe etc.
5. I feel you, there are many times I am also ashamed but y'know not everyone is bad, not all of those people are stupid 100% of the time, no reason for you to condemn the human race.
6. Finally, you're a fangirl... that's fine but it'd help ya to worry more bout yourself than your kpop idol groups, then you wouldn't even be mad at something that happens everyday.

Sometimes I can't decide whether I've lost all hope for humanity
& you're definitely spot on, on how that's the reason why the US is hated so much. We give the image that we are all full of ourselves and are better than anyone else. That and stupidity.

Man, at this rate, if we still fight over race and ethnicity, peace will take hundreds if not thousands of years to be achieved. Actually, we'll probably end up killing ourselves by then.

When someone achieves, we congratulate them. When someone falls we help them back up. Is that too hard to do, or even comprehend?


Why can't we all just get along?
It hurts knowing that we all separate each other and cause only suffering.
Peace...maybe one day.

On November 3rd The first ever YouTube awards took place. Of course, many huge artist were nominated.
One category was " Video of the year". Artist such as Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Selina Gomez, etc, were nomines.
There was one artist however, (Or should I say ''Group") in that category that stood out the most. It was none other than the amazingly beautiful and talented K-Pop group "Girls Generation". I am a huge fan, so I was watching the polls nearly every day up until the award show, and they absolutely SMASHED every other artist there was.

Then the show ended, and, well..... take a look at this for yourself.

And here is a music video from Girls Generation. (If you are interested.)

I have no words.....other than this.

THIS is why Americans are hated so much by other countries.
THIS is why the music industry is going to complete shit.
I'm so ashamed to even be human.
And as bad or offensive this may sound to most...I take racism rights over gay rights ANY day! If you must know why....open up a History book.

Some of you might think I'm over reacting, but really, how is something like this " Not that bad." or " Something that shouldn't be taken too seriously." This is the future right here. Plain and simple.


And please...don't try and start flame wars with me or others. The whole point of this is that hatred needs to stop!

"You don't deserve a point of view, If the only thing you see is you." -Paramore


I don't like K-pop, but I don't think that the scene was really racist. I think it was more of a fandrama thing - fans being butthurt that their group did not win.

Just to point off however - Americans are not the only racists in the world. Have you SEEN the racism in Korea? The way (for example) whites are treated vs. blacks? Another great example is the horrible, racist names Koreans call the Japanese figure skater Mao Asada when compared to their own Korean princess, Yuna Kim? Or how much severe racism is in places like we-hate-Asians-Australia, Neo-Nazi-full Russia or Holland for another example? In South America how people of darker/mixed skin colours are treated like second class citizens? How a lot of schoolchildren in Japan already have rude views of Chinese and they are not checked of this by their school teachers?

If you think America is the most racist place in the world, that just shows that you know and read up on nothing.

Racism exists ALL over the world, and it comes FROM and is directed TO EVERYONE.

In fact, you're being pretty racist by being so judgmental. You cry racism, yet you're stereotyping and labeling a group of people. Right.

And Youtube might be an American company, but there are people from all over the world on that website. There are always racist comments from Americans, Europeans, Canadians, Africans, Asians - EVERYONE.

While the incident might have come off as racist to some (I think in this case it was more of a fanwar thing), you're completely wrong by saying ONLY Americans are racist/the most racist. It happens all over the world from all ethnic groups of people.

Not only that, but you come off as a deranged fangirl s well. What a stupid, ignorant comment you made.

I'm not really surprised honestly. I've always said it'll be impossible to get rid of racism so long as freedom of speech exists. I think it's better to just turn a blind eye in this situation, let the twats be twats and move on. I don't agree with racism, but this is a case where the damage has already been done. But there are many other reasons as to why the music industry is going to shit besides this.
