The korean media has a long history of anti blackness... please check this out too Liz since you posted that music video http://yeoja.tumblr.com/post/108134082123/owning-my-truth-cl-from-2ne1-the-baddest

i don't see it in that way at all. cl isn't presenting herself as a caricature of an african american woman. it's korean hiphop and hiphop has its roots in black funk- and soulmusic but today hiphop is everywhere, there is german hiphop, there is even austrian hiphop and there is also korean hiphop. cl isn't making fun of black women - actually she is empowering ALL women to be themselves and she isn't saying something like "hey i'm making fun of black women and i'm sooo bad", you should read the translation of her lyrics and then you would know that cl is empowering women, telling them to follow her and her lifestyle because she simply doesn't give a fuck about what others think. basically the same as i am doing. and about the "leopard costume", all the clothes in this scene are sponsored by Jeremy Scott x Adidas. this isn't a "leopard costume", these are clothes designed by Jeremy Scott and Adidas and they gave them to CL and her "crew" so they can wear them in her musicvideo.
"This is for all my bad girls around the world
Not bad meaning bad but bad meaning good, you know
Let’s light it up and let it burn like we don’t care
Let em know how it feels damn good to be bad"
