No racism in Korea
I thank your site for not doing racism. Other forign site like to make race joke to Korea people. Like this stupid one http://dongchim.wordpress.com/
I hate so many race joke foreign people. Always try to laugh at korea people. Do not laugh at korea people.
You are being WAY too sensitive. Look at the Korean media and the way it treats foreigners so bad. Why don't you talk about that racism against foreigners in Korea?
I agree racism is bad, but doesn't hurt to take a look in your own backyard first.
In what way does the Korean media treat foreigners "so bad"? I watch the news here quite a lot and rarely see anything negative against foreigners. This is a common, almost entirely unsubstantiated bitch I hear from foreigners looking to justify their own intolerances. Certainly there are instances where this historically homogenous society feels the pressure of a mixing populous and lashes out, but on a day to day basis I'm quite certain that most any open minded foreigner (of course, I can only speak on behalf of western, white collar foreigners) would have to concede that Korea and Koreans tend to out of their way to make us feel comfortable.
Please provide details and links as to this racism you perceive is being directed at foreigners here by the media.
The above link is hilarious, by the way
You should probably look at the news more often. How about the recent suicide by the teacher? The coverage suddenly turned into a long diatribe about what was described as a frightening drinking problem with ALL foreigners and how scary it is that a drunk foreigner might be teaching our children. Not a mention of alcohol problems with locals. The list goes on. Do your research. Check out the blogs that translate the media into English.
Racism is a serious issue in some regions in the world. It's good to know that this thing doesn't exist in Korea. - Paul Kadri
