Oh come on. There's racism in your lovely Canada as well eh! It's everywhere and from everybody. And it bites, but it is there.

You claim to be interested in ending hate, so why did you create an anti-American forum!? Waving a white flag while howling in anger and pointing fingers? There are more than a few carrion within your flock of doves. Be it unintentional or not, this forum is a breeding ground for racism, tribalism, trolls, and general anger.

It's just butt hurt fans getting upset over Girls Generation winning.

Which is weird anyway, because Korean music isn't even marketed in North America. At least, not that much.

To be honest, I think the fact that Girls Generation won shows that North America is pretty diverse when it comes to race. If they really were as racist as people think, Girls Generation wouldn't have been allowed to win.

When judging a country, don't focus on solely the negatives. Look at everything.

It's just a bunch of Justin Fanboys and Girls ranting over the internet. Racism is everywhere; not just America. But, the " Girls Generation opens your eyes" was pretty funny. Sorry I chuckled

You're right, it was horrendous how some people responded, but you have to remember, racism is not just an American thing, it's a human thing. There is racism in every country, including Asian countries. There are always morons who are self absorbed and can't see beyond their own little worlds, or respect other people's rights. The key here is a human trait, not just an American trait.

Ehh. I don't mean to down-play how awful these people are (you know who you are, you scumbag), but this is nothing new. People have been using the internet to say the kinds of things that start barfights for years.

Just harden your heart to it, always remember who you are inside, where it counts, and carry on.

She speaks wonderful English. That's all I have to say.


Edit:
Actually, I have one more thing to say. One Direction isn't American, yet I don't see people having a problem with them. I really can't stand how ignorant people are.

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


So we're racist, and that's why other countries hate us? Isn't that them being racist also? Now as for the matter at hand. I don't think you're overreacting to the post, but I do think you may be overreacting to the situation itself. Only because to focus in on the negative comments of a few and assume everyone is like that is very presumptuous.

Not knocking on you, in fact I agree that the racism is retarded at best. Just a vote of caution, don't read something on the internet about Americans and then lump us all into that one category. Often those with the unpopular view are the most outspoken of their opinions.
