대한민국에 언제 억압받는 백인 있었냐?
I see The Oppressed White People of the Republic of Korea are up in arms again about a new, insulting video about Korean women dating dirty foreigners. It’s in the foreigners have HIV vein of yellow journalism. Sure, it sucks that so many Koreans are easily swayed to purchase the nationalist nonsense that foreigners represent contagion and the decay of culture. It’s superiorly crass xenophobia on display, but it’s hard to take this video very seriously. (Never mind what Korean families put their relatives through when they date and/or marry a foreigner. That’s a whole ‘nother thing altogether.) Here it is:
Poor oppressed westerners. Life’s so hard in Korea. They’ll have to remain and work sort of hard, make lots of money, travel throughout North and South East Asia, receive decent health benefits, pay into reasonable pension plans, receive more vacation and sick days than many if not most of their Korean co-workers; or, they can choose to return home where they can participate in the undue oppression of their own nations’ immigrant population and foreign labor force.
Westerners always conveniently forget they can leave Korea at any time and at will. You’d think they were refugees. This implies, in my opinion, that many of my fellow foreigners like to invision themselves as oppressed as many immigrants in our home countries, which is not even remotely accurate. We are, after all, members of the educated labor force privileged enough to seek employment outside of our countries. And they never talk about the work they can do to promote change themselves, work they must do to promote change. And how forgetful Americans are when yapping about Koreans and Korean culture. We still occupy their country. It’s not as if the resentment, especially towards white foreigners, doesn’t have a reasonable source.
And let’s not pretend there aren’t thousands of white men trolling Korean youth culture for sex.
