Fads fade with time and this cultish rage trending in Japan will be snuffed out when the girls discover that Oprah and Beyonce are exceptions are rare of successful Chinese moon landings.
From our source we read:
Dutch photographer Desiré van den Berg has spent the past seven months traveling around Asia. She lives in Hong Kong at the moment, but when she was in Tokyo, back in December 2013, she met Hina, a 23-year-old who works at a trendy Tokyo boutique called Baby Shoop. Hina's shop has the tagline “Black for Life.” She describes its products as “a tribute to Black culture: the music, the fashion, and style of dance.”These girls are misled.
Hina's appearance is also loyal to what the Japanese call "B-style"—a contraction of the words "Black" and "Lifestyle" that refers to a subculture of young Japanese people who love American hip-hop culture so much that they do everything in their power to look as African American as possible.
They are not reflecting true black culture. Rather, their minds have absorbed the media misconception of what it is like to be black.
There seems to be a universal epidemic of low self esteem among young women. Rather than accepting themselves as they are -- being grateful for their DNA -- they long to be the person in the glamour magazine, the plastic doll on the toy store shelf, or the sizzling super star on television. Do they not realize that those lifestyles are not attainable because they are not real?
