Wendy from K-Pop group Red Velvet imitates white and black women for the 2nd time



In another news from KKK-pop, Canadian and US educated member Wendy from K-Pop girl group Red Velvet showcasted her "talent" for imitating white and black races. It's not the first time Miss Wendy does this. In 2014, she imitated black men and claimed "For black men, because they're like gangsters, they're like…," (before mimicking black guys' ghetto stereotype moves).



Here's she goes again in 2018 imitating white girls' valley accent and black women's "sassy and aggressive attitude".

The translation goes like this: The MC asks Wendy who lived in the US if it's true that, like the regional dialects in Korea, there's a difference in how different races speak English and she says yes... And says if you're a popular white girl you speak like this, and if you're a popular black girl you speak like this, saying their (black people) expressions are like this (the pursed lips thing), and they use their bodies a lot like this (the finger and body wave thing).

The male MC says he notices how they (black people) use their bodies a lot when talking, and that they don't avoid eyes when confronting you (the subtitle while he's talking says "white English is more 'prim'", to top it off). Then the MC asks them to go at it together in English, with the guy imitating a black man and her imitating a white girl. (Thanks jasmineakaiumi for the translation)
