Well, on the off chance they're right — and they might be, if you ignore all the critical stuff I write — I thought I would print, without editorial input, the following comment from another blog:
Um, could you comment on the story that Brian's blog had about the murders of young Koreans in Russia?There, Tiredofdoublestandards. I've just increased your audience by at least twenty-four.
I have a feeling that you're going to have my response -sad as that is, how about the greater number of foreigners who have died or been assaulted/raped in Korea by Koreans?
Take the young teacher in Jeollanam about a year and a half ago who was minding her friends' dogs in a room. A hateful, drunk Korean threw his cigarette on a sofa outside the door of the room.
Coincidence that he knew a foreigner lived there? The woman opened the door of the room and was burned so badly she died a few weeks later.
What about the poor teenager (American) who was found dead in the Korean sauna? Those of us who went to them once but were turned off by 'straight' Korean men trying to harass us think there is more to that death than meets the eye.
What about the guy who had medication forced on him and died? Supposedly he was 'crazy' but he was about to go home for good.
How about the 3 cases I've heard about of rapes of female English teachers?
I'm sure there are more and your readers can help. These cases are probably the tip of the iceberg.
And I don't care what anybody says - I've seen Koreans in foreign countries and behave very much like ignorant assholes who are begging to be at least punched in the face.
It wouldn't surprise me if those dead Koreans in Russia did their usual staring and laughing at those who attacked them fatally. Or pushed their way past Russians. You can't do that with such dangerous people as skins.
