Discrimination, sir and madam, is a never ending story. I’ve came across an article in yahoo about a Korean in America going frenzy with his gun in a school where he got expelled. The article stated that the suspect was mistreated and teased his English accent by other students, the most probable trigger to this crime scene. I believe that a Filipino was involved in the incident, and this will have an impact against our image, my image in this country. Stereotyping and generalizing, I can take that, but seriously? Here are some of the hilarious and ridiculous comments I’ve read from the site:
- to all concerned governement agencies: please check all South Koreans residing, studying in the Philippines – EmmanuelJ
Ha ha ha are you kidding me? You think the government care about us? The government only care about generating more $$$.
- most Korean men are lunatic, hot tempered and unpredictable – Mhel
Alright mister or miss. I don’t know what is or are your basis on that statement but let me tell you this: please drop the “H” out of your name!
- Koreans talaga… wierd so wierd! – anonymous
Language barrier is one thing, culture shock is another. Racism is a never ending debate but if we try to understand each other, we know that we can prevent this from happening. Teasing is fun, but it ain’t cool if you do not know the personality of the victim. Bullying ain’t cool, and it should be stopped. I’m sure you guys have heard about the bullying with respect to suicide cases. It may be humor to others, but the affected are suffering!
Anyway, my weight is still a bit over 200 pounds. Let me make it 180 by end of April!
