You're S. African, therefore it's clear why you defend the indefensible. I've met a few S. Africans, not many mind you, but I knew and lived close to a handful and through them met many of their countrymen. I was invited to a bris, or brie, or whatever you call it and talked to many.

One thing I noticed was this, whenever they were speaking to each other, they were not speaking English. Thus, they are not NES. Therefore they should not be eligible to teach in Korea.

Done.
confusedsaffer's opinion is indefensible because he's South African? Gotta love the bigotry here. South Africans have been wonderful teachers here and I dont get this.

Also, confusedsaffer, standing against ignorance is not being an apologist, and having your opinion disregarded due to ethnicity is wrong. Please remember this.

Well, my auntie does speak English with a strong Afrikaner accent... so I kind of get why they want to double-check SA applicants.

And Irish speak English with an Irish accent, which is worse?
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

I remember even at the time thinking this was a bit racist, but of course they got away with it due to the low hanging nature of the fruit.

I was wondering when this video would make an appearance...

Yep, wasn't going to mention it at first, but they wouldn't let it lie.

The guy was taken out of the picture, replaced by a stock photo model who has never set foot in Korea.

That's an expertly done photoshop. Looks like a real scene. Only looking right towards the shoulder area gives it away. 

What's with the fake pictures?  I mean they have hired tons of foreigners.  Why not take one of their pictures and use a real one?  Geeze.

A lot of South Africans seem friendly enough to me.

I used to like Spitting Image and thought it was funny. I've never seen that video before but it didn't let me down.
