During that time, we would all know that they were occupied by America. During that time and the sudden and dominant influx of foreign culture left them confused as to who they are, and who they’re supposed to be. Are they who they always were? Are they supposed to be like the “others”? Are they supposed to create something new? Who are they? Since the A-Bomb, this has been the cloud that has hung so low on their culture for so long. They are not dressing like this because they’re trying to be black, they’re doing so because they’re trying to find out who they are and what works for them. They’re grappling for an identity.

emulate Black People they are doing the Californian Beach Girl and (different variations) look to the EXTREME not black people at all!
This look shown above loosely translates to “Mountain Hag” …
If they really wanted to look like black people they would and they would take that to an extreme as well I’m sure!
-And yes I am BLACK

What should Whites say about Black people making their skin lighter? why black people in general always wish they could be lighter?
And being tanned (not black) or wanting it has nothing to do with blacks because many races out there are tanned, latinos, arabs and so on and they are damn gorgeous, Japanese should perhaps look somwhere else because unfortunately blacks always see thing badly while themselves are those who started whities imitations ehm, anyways i don’t see why Japs wanna be black? wrong choice lol and they are fine the way they are they should appreciate their own selves. they are unique and beautiful their own way.
please don’t delete my comment, i have black friends and thanks god they are not seeking to be white or whatever, they accept their own selves very well and that is what everyone should do.

I’m sure half of the people here will complain about what other people do saying this or that is ugly, you don’t even know why they’re doing it. The only racism comes from somebody who knows nothing about their culture anymore, I bet if you went to the continent you came from you wouldn’t know a damn thing, so STFU, especially you YANA, you’re the only sub-human person I see here.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with that, if chooseing to have dark skin is your own definition of beauty, why woulndn’t you reach for it if it’s at your fingertips? Wearable art. I personally would LOVE to be a traditional Japanese girl, pale skin, straight hair, the works. If I can find a way to manage that, I will. The Japanese are very open minded culturally diverse, they see the beauty in cultures, that sometime even the said culture dosn’t see in itself.
Although I doubt sharpies are good for the skin…

I have to say, I like it. They express themselves through there fashion. So some Japaneese girls want to be black. Let them be black. It’s there choice.
I think the reason some people want to be a different (or a slightly different) colour of skin is that they think it will some how make there life better. They think that some how if your a different colour you will experience life in another way, a better way. Life on a whole will be more enjoyable. It can result in the craziness of everyone to look like anything but themselves. But, Our society has always been beauty obcessed. Like the Japaneese ganguro girls say “It’s because it’s beautiful”.

Not that I don’t mind tanned skin or fake flowers- but its just odd to me to see a asian chick with a darker skin tone then mine. The light hair, dark skin, and the gallions of white make up just doesn’t look right to me.
