i started crying by the time the chorus came around.
everybody, please watch this video. it’s not another cute romance or break-up song. the video very clearly shows that this is about Lee Michelle’s struggle to be accepted in very large part to her skin color. The child acting in this deserves every single award, as does Michelle. Both the song and the video hit really hard.
some important things to keep in mind:
- Michelle is half black and half Korean. Some people act like saying “African American” is better than black, but she’s never been to America. Afro-Hispanic people exist, African people exist — not everyone black is African American.
-for God’s sake, PLEASE don’t comment on how amazed you are by her Korean. She was born and raised in Korea. It’s her first language. Just because she doesn’t “look Korean” to you doesn’t mean she’s not.
- I skipped the first 1:30 of the video because watching a little girl run around in panic makes me anxious, personally. The song starts around 1:35, but parts of the beginning are really cool. I just couldn’t handle it.
- Michelle was also featured in the absolutely gorgeous Rewind by Double K. Please go support both songs!
I want this girl to get support and love from us. Please, check her out, reblog this video, support her with views, anything you can. It’s clear that she has a struggle before her in the k-pop world despite her incredible talent, charisma, and beauty. It’s really inspiring that she is making that the root of her work. As a person with brown skin, and also a person with a heart, this was really, really important to me.
I agree though, I’m afraid to even mention how bad he is at showing up to class at the right time. It’s so frustrating to see how uncaring professors can be. It’s so hard to watch and can be un motivating.
Thank you!!! I really appreciate your kindness!!!
You’re right about artists never being satisfied with their work! Just have to find a balance between being critical and being proud of something at least…lots of artists should be proud of what they do. I need to have this mindset to help me be more productive, too…
I’m not a very imaginative and creative person in a sense that…I’m not so confident in my original content? I honestly take critique really well but today my professor completely ridiculed the idea of the main character being selfish. I said, there isn’t really a bad force, but because of the main character’s selfishness, it resulted to bad circumstances. In turn, he learns about sacrifice which brings him back home.
The professor couldn’t understand and laughed at me??
My thing is: he didn’t have a guide about how he wanted the story telling to be. If he gave specific instructions, I know people would be moving forward with their projects but they aren’t.
People who teach have to be willing to sit down, be constructive, caring, and brutally honest, not laugh at students and proceed to not tell them how to improve.
My family is interested in traveling this summer (domestic flight in the US) and we were wondering about affordable flight deals? Anyone have good experiences with any airlines?
Almost that time of year!! #fall #halloween #theshining
