    Instagram Impostors: Twitter Exposes White Womens N*ggerfishing Tactics

    On election night, while the nation waited with bated breath over poll results, Twitter user, Dee (@yeahboutella) shared a series of Instagram screenshots on Twitter regarding their dismay and shock over a white woman outed for being white. Now you may be asking yourself how is someone is outed regarding race in 2018 and especially as white? Evidently, a Swedish white woman Emma Hallberg, who goes by the username @eemmahallberg on Instagram, was accused of sleeping with braids to give her hair a fuller and more textured look, spray tanning her skin until it was five or six shades darker, and using foundation to deepen the appearance of her skin.

    Replies to Dees thread consisted of equally shocked Twitter users, and one tweet even featured a stark contrast between @eemmahallbergs appearance in 2016 and 2018. Another tweet revealed a shot of her Youtube video showing the disparity between her darker foundation and her naturally fairer skin. Writer Wanna (@WannasWorld) who has masterfully framed Black women in the hood and their direct influence on fashion, asked her followers to add more women like Hallberg, who essentially cosplay racially ambiguous mixed-race women of African descent to showcase the Instagram phenomenon. Moreover, she brilliantly highlighted it as a ni**erfishing epidemic. Replies flooded Wannas tweet and even prompted accounts dedicated to exhibiting what can only be described as something along the lines of racist body dysmorphia.

    So what is the issue here besides the complete absurdity of it all? Well, for one, there are multiple issues with this. Lets look at the most obvious: these white women are physically altering themselves to look like mixed-raced women of African descent for social and monetary capital.

    Due to the vigorous erasure of unambiguous Black women in mass media, the market for mixed-raced and racially ambiguous women has skyrocketed. To illustrate this point Black womens representation drastically shifted from the Afrocentric look in the 1990s to what we have seen and continue to see in contemporary eras of the 2000s and 2010s, which is a more universally appealing look generally found in women who are not monoracially Black. The abundance of Black women who cannot be cosplayed by white women such: members of En Vogue, Blaque, Brownstone, SWV; Brandy, Lauryn Hill, Tatyana Ali, and Nia Long dwindled in preference to: Zendaya, Kehlani, Alexandra Shipp, Amandla Stenberg, Jhene Aiko, Cassie, Yara Shahidi, and Cardi B.

    The high demand for women with features that are Black enough to provide the exoticism and white enough to appeal and provide accessibility to white women created the space for literal imposters or ni**afishes. The look, popularly known as Instagram Baddie, relies on Black women as its foundation, but because Blackness fails white beauty standards it has to be adequately removed from Blackness to appeal to white women. The Instagram Baddie aesthetic for non-Black women results in more likes on social media which operates as social currency thus inadvertently; however, more times than not, intentionally garners recognition from beauty corporations invested in exploiting the insecurities of women for profit.

    Brands reach out to non-Black Instagram baddies, at remarkably higher rates than the Black women whose looks create the foundation for the aesthetic. These corporations provide the universally appealing women with lucrative opportunities such as brand ambassadorships; all expense paid trips, advertising deals, and free products. The business becomes cyclical: white and non-Black women alter their appearance to become Instagram Baddies, they gain social validation through likes which subsequently increases financial profits on both the woman and brands side, and it reinforces a beauty standard at the ironic exclusion of Black women.

    Disappointingly, because the Black folks en mass continue to uphold and adhere to the racist one-drop rule, racially ambiguous mixed-race women are seen as Black although their sociopolitical and economic experiences are measurably different in comparison to Black women. The differences between the two groups of women is an iteration of the colonial three caste system in Southern Louisiana, a part of U.S. history that isnt as widely interrogated as it should be although it set a precedent for colorism the United States.

    Now, in the modern-age, racial ambiguity has afforded mixed-raced, and consequently white women, the privilege of trapezing a broader demographic. For whites and non-Black people of color Instagram baddies are exotic, and to Blacks, these women are still seen as Black because there may be a little bit of Black in them, even when it turns out there isnt any at all. This more expansive demographic translates to higher opportunities for marketability and monetary profit because diverse groups of people will consume the image of these women more favorably.

    The preeminent non-Black women to ni**erfish in the contemporary era are the Kardashian-Jenners. They may not have been duped the public into believing that they are Black; however, they tap into Black womens aesthetic for their marketability as well as steady proximity to Blackness by way of their male partners and high-profile Black women friends. It is not by chance that Kim and her family have dominated urban blogs like Bossip and The Shade Room and have become household names among Black America in comparison to other non-Black and white celebrities like a Sofa Vergara or Jennifer Lawrence who are also positioned as standards of beauty.

    Rapper and ex-boyfriend of the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner klan, Kylie, recently spoke about the deliberate efforts the Kardashians make in co-opting Blackness. Regarding Kylies drastic shift from ordinary white girl to an Instagram baddie, he said, you gotta look at the before and after. She always had a platform, and she was always destined to be what she was going to be regardless, but, when I stepped in, there was a lot of codes being taught. By codes it can be inferred he means Black codes, presumably the way Black women pose in pictures, dress, and wear their hair and makeup. He followed up by saying it was like, you could do this, you should start this, you should start doing your hair like this, you should add that because you need black people to f with you if you aint got Black people behind you, you aint got nothing.

    It was one thing for the Kardashian-Jenner family to satisfy the Black Male Gaze but by donning the entire custom of racial ambiguity and signaling cues of Blackness is how they fascinated the community as a whole. Their shape-shifting allowed them to not only sell their products to white women desperate to look more interesting, seen in the timing of Kylies lip kits and her lip filler debacle but also to Black women who also aspire to attain a look that receives widespread approval, particularly from Black men.

    A hard truth in this trend is the complicity of Black people. As Tyga truthfully articulated, if you aint got Black people behind you, you aint got nothing. There has to be a substantial investment in racially ambiguous mixed-race women and an affirmation of their Blackness even when it is not being asked for by them in order for them to pull the con off.

    For Black men, their internalize anti-Black racism is projected through implicit and explicit violence against Black women. They shame and vilify Black features and characteristics on Black women with colorism and featurism yet praise and seek out white and non-Black women who have transformed themselves into caricatures of Black women. Moreover, because they are still men, the act of women contorting themselves to appease them is an added ego-boost. Partnering and creating progeny with these women ultimately fulfill their white male penis envy and erases the parts (or entirety) of Blackness they wish did not exist in themselves.

    For Black women, their participation in the elevation of these women is a more woeful tale. Because they desire to be desired by Black men they follow whom they see appealing to Black men. Because patriarchal domination transcends sexual orientation, the desire is not solely based in cisheteronormativity but rather the general oppression of women. Their added media erasure which has not yet happened to Black men creates a void in healthy self-esteem building. Thus, allowing for any representation no matter how fictitious to serve their need to be seen and affirmed. Capitalism, racism, and patriarchy become the driving forces that create the environment for Black women become reliable and loyal consumers for racially ambiguous mixed-raced women and now white women who advance their erasure and sell their image back to them.

    So, yes the ni**erfishing trend is ridiculous, and the name coming from a Black woman may make you let out a hearty chuckle, but the implications are dire. Not only have mixed-race women replaced Black women in spaces designated for them thanks to the one-drop rule but because of their easily mimicable features, white women and non-Black can now take up space and opportunities that were already hard for Black women to access and now make it all but impossible for Black women to do so. More importantly, outside of the monetary and social capital, the diet blackface only further complicates an already complex sense of self among Black women. Unlike women like Hallberg, Black womens race-based body dysmorphia has not and is not met with light-hearted Twitter jokes or compassion but instead vitriolic shaming and silencing. Since social capital, in this case, is controlled by users of social media platforms, shifting your following and likes to unambiguous Black women is an excellent starting point to remedy the damage caused by ni**afishes.

    A Swedish Instagram model is facing controversy after followers accused her of pretending to be black, calling her out for cultural appropriation.

    Emma Hallberg, 19, is known for uploading selfies and makeup tips for her 200,000 Instagram followers. But some social media users were shocked when they found out that Hallberg, who currently has a bronze complexion, is white.

    It all started last Tuesday when a Twitter user uploaded a photo from Hallbergs Instagram along with a screenshot of a conversation pointing out that the brunette beauty is actually white.

    I honestly thought Emma [Hallberg] was half black lol, another Twitter user commented.

    Other people started to recirculate a photo on Twitter of Hallberg with a noticeably lighter skin tone. Some accused her of blackfishing, or pretending to be black to get more attention.

    If her skin colour changed between seasons I dont think her skin colour would be the same for every season as you can see on her Instagram, wrote one online user. The girl was clearly posing as black, as shes posted by many black pages.

    Hallberg has been featured on Instagram pages showcasing black models, according to Buzzfeed, but she never asked the accounts to take down posts most of which have now been deleted.

    Hallberg has since turned off comments on her social media accounts, as some users discussed whether or not her pictures are considered blackface.

    After the backlash, the model defended herself to Buzzfeed, saying shes never used any self-tanners or spray tans and never claimed or tried to be black or anything else.

    I do not see myself as anything else than white, she said. I get a deep tan naturally from the sun.

    She also referenced a selfie from 2017 and told Buzzfeed that she has the same tan she has now.

    The only difference is that I didnt post as many pictures that summer compared to this summer, because I didnt have as many followers then as I do now, she said.

    Twitter user Wanna Thompson, 27, told Buzzfeed that Hallberg should be transparent about her look.

    Nobody is saying you cant get a tan or modify your appearance but she was intentionally ignoring the comments from black women specifically who genuinely wanted honest dialogue, Thompson, whos from Toronto, told Buzzfeed.


    Some people, however, came to the models defence.

    My lord! Who cares! Like seriously if she wants to be green, let her, wrote Osha Toni Payne. There are bigger issues in this country, I reckon.

    Shes not the only Instagram influencer whos been accused of appropriating black culture. In June 2017, Kim Kardashian faced controversy when she was accused of darkening her skin in an ad to promote her new beauty line.

    She claimed she was just really tan when the photo was taken, the New York Times reported, and that it might be that the contrast was off.

    Dammit, I clicked on the link and saw the dirtbag concerned UGH!!! She'd look trashy regardless of her skin colour.

    Oh well, I suppose certain men go for sluts but sluts with mental problems ... ... I just can't figure any of this out!

    Due to the vigorous erasure of unambiguous Black women in mass media, the market for mixed-raced and racially ambiguous women has skyrocketed.
    What a load of garbage; who writes this stuff?? They obviously haven't watched the BBC recently

    Black Appropriation Is The Newest Shade In Swedish Spray Tans

    Believe it or not, a company in Sweden is now selling a dark chocolate tanning solution that offers white people with an identity crisis the option to darken their skin. Yes, consider this your facepalm wtf are they thinking? moment of the day.

    Stockholm-based Emmaatan salon specializes in spray tans offering incredibly dark tanning services, with names like Violet Onyx, Dark Ash Onyx, Caramel and Dark Chocolate.

    Generally, spray tans are reserved for East Coast spring-breakers desperate to add a little color to their winter bodies before heading down to Florida. While the results range from just a hint of skin cancer to Donald Trump orange, these new tans go darker much darker. So far the notoriously pale Swedish people are clamoring to embrace their artificial blackness.

    After music, fashion, slang, butt and lip injections, cornrow braids, the cringe-worthy Rachel Dozen scandal last year and likely dozens more examples, the dark chocolate spray tan is just the newest entry on the embarrassing list of cultural appropriation. The tanning solution has been met with mixed reviews over on Tumblr as well, with one user commenting: its funny they think its ok for them to be black, but not for black people to be black.

    Meanwhile, the maker of the tanning solution has offered an explanation amidst the backlash, saying:Im a small tanning business in Sweden and Ive been working in beauty for 2 years. Im a hard-working owner of Emmaatan and love working with beauty cause I get to appreciate all types of looks and figures. Im in [shock] for the response Ive gotten and may have responded and commented the wrong way because I expect people to know how spray tans work. Ive got a lot of feedback and mostly been called black face and racist. People look at the pic Ive posted and without a blink assume we desire to look black. I understand why it might seem that way and I apologize for the misunderstanding.

    Now, obviously if you want to alter your skin through tanning in the sun, tanning beds, or a chemical spray, thats youre right. But, come on, a little common sense here can go a long way and it doesnt take a sociology diploma to connect the dots and realize that this is basically blackface in a bottle. Up to you if you want to traverse the uncomfortable racial midfield by walking around in public like a 2016 version of Thomas C. Howell in Soul Man.
    https://www.buzzworthy.com/emmaatan-...-white-people/

    22-year-old Hannah Tittensor from Belfast, Ireland, developed an obsession with being tanned after she was left with a beautiful bronze color while on holiday in Turkey in 2015. Since then, the beauty therapy student has regularly spent time in sunbeds, but her color isn't only due to the sun or UV light.

    The Daily Mail reported that Hannah uses Melanotan, an under-the-counter tanning injection, that helps the user get darker tones more quickly when lying under sunlight or in sunbeds.

    She said: "Some people have accused me of trying to look like a black woman. I'm not trying to do that at all, I just like the way my skin looks healthy and glowing with a tan. Some girls can't live without getting their nails or hair done and for me it's tanning."






    22-year-old tan addict who uses illegal Melanotan injections to get ultra-dark look says she is 'not racist'

    Some other blackfaces:

    While some of them look a bit shady, others look obviously white in the before pictures. Although not all of them are transracial and still claim to be/identify as white, there's still a clear identity issue.

    Seriously, what do we expect?

    70 years of propaganda telling whitey they're "evil incarnate" and there "really are no whites" and the promotion of everything black-ish as the "future of mankind". Of course some instable, attention-seeking chicks are going become "POC" in order to be allowed in the media circus and not get shunned for being white, and not get the burden of "white guilt" thrown upon their shoulders.

    Propaganda induced identity issue, indeed.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefrchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    For some reason Swedes and other nordic types seem to be the worst about resisting social trends like this.
    The blonder the head the worse the herd behavior seems to be.

    According to my observations in this libtard college town, that seems to be pathetically true.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.
