I couldn’t help noticing parallels with Japan in this story from Korea, right down to these photos:
The story also has the old chestnut:
If I took a seat, the seat next to me would often remain empty even during rush hours in crowded subways
Paging Yokohama’s Osaka pal! (I note also that that guy’s son blamed his inability to get a convenience store job on his dreadlocks, not on the colour of his skin; what a Blapologist!)
There’s also the hard to fathom being strangled by a Samsung employee in a taxi (how did that all come about – the lack of details lessens the impact, I feel) and this familiar statement:
the police refused to take any action on the grounds that “racial discrimination does not exist in Korea.”
Umm, if you say so.
