« on: November 06, 2014, 10:06:49 AM »
LMAO, What do you guy think?

Funny or Racist, or both..
This remind me that Korea still have a long way to go in term of accepting people of different color.

It's hilarious. I don't find it the least bit racist.

The old woman say something like "Oh, you came"... clearly expecting it to be someone else.
I really don't think this has anything to do with race.

You can even see at the end that their is a big grin on her face, not a look of horror or disgust. She just got a shock because she was expecting someone else.

I've seen people parading this as proof that Korea is a racist place. I'm not denying racism here but that's not a good example and it's been used maliciously by some folks.

Also, from what I heard, she recognized him, as the dude is somewhat of a celebrity.
The lady might just be star-struck.  :undecided:

Interesting, wounder if the dude is not a star here.

What would the reaction be like again? same reaction or different. My bet is if it another black male, it would still be the same reaction.

Seemed like the other guy was trying to sell it so she reacted to him more than the guy under the mask. 
It's -ev to deal with some people.

It's a joke and staged. I've seen the full clip. The guy next to the lady set it up.... It's hilarious, even if it is a skit. There is truth to it. I've been living in my building for 2 years and people still jump when I walk out the elevator. No issues here, it's funny. We both laugh and he/she usually apologizes.. No issue.

Have a link to the full clip? I'd like to see the full context of it.
