Why the 1st Black K-pop Idol was a Disaster (BP Rania Alex Reid) Token Black Girl in K-pop?

Alex Reid was the leader of BP Rania, and became the 1st Black K-pop idol to ever debut in a K-pop history. But there’s reasons why it was a k-pop disaster for Alex. I also cover about reasons why she was probably signed and crazy assumptions about her being “kicked out.”

Here’s my K-pop sources for this video:

Alex explains that when the A&R for DR Music approached her, he asked her would she consider ever being in a K-pop group. I quote her, “I’m not Asian, I’m not a K” and he said, “I know”. In that same interview she said that the company wanted her to keep her curly hair and they didn’t care about her skin color. She says they said, “Keep your a** as black as possible” (31:55) Before listening to her interview, I always felt that she was used for the group because she was black, it’s an added bonus, I still think she was used but I feel it was more due to her music connections in the USA, and that’s what they wanted her for. Probably to make DP Rania famous in the USA and then kick her out of the group. Sure they saw talent but they wanted her connections and not really her as an artist. Cause let’s face it, that company did not take her seriously because if they did, they would not have debuted her so quick without Korean rapping and singing lessons. According to Alex, Korean lessons never happened and that she had to teach herself from the beginning.
