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 1:38, 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.
discovering what turns someone on gives you so much power over them
i relate to this so much
can we start a club for teenagers who were constantly complimented on their intelligence when they were younger and are now having trouble coping with the realization that they’re actually of average intellect at best
in elementary school i constantly scored as reading at a college level but then i got to college and suddenly everyone’s reading at college level.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN A POST THAT SO ACCURATELY DESCRIBES MY LIFE.
i cant believe im hesitating making this post but
if someone has a comfort object, like a blanket or a stuffed animal or anythign that they have to sleep with in order to make them feel secure or positive, don’t fucking make fun of them. i don’t care where it is or why you feel that it’s funny or childish, but don’t make fun of them.
this is my love letter to azlyrics for not being annoying as fuck like other lyric websites
there are just people out there that are the embodiment of the sun like the things they say and do light up the world and make you feel warm they are human sunshine
