"asking koreans the 'korean n word' | social experiment" video



what happens when a foreigner asks average young koreans about the korean equivalent of the n word?

i like this channel and their social experiment videos and recently on twitter i've seen arguments about what ggamdoongi (깜둥이) ~really~ means so i thought this video being posted a couple days ago happened at a really good/relevant time! also, as someone who is half black, these topics/issues are very important to me.

I agree that they should do a comparison. A black person asked it here, maybe next time have an Asian with a darker skin-tone ask the question, and put it back-to-back. I'm inclined to believe the responses would be different; saying it to a black person makes it racism, while saying it to a darker-toned Asian person makes it socially-accepted colorism. It would make for interesting commentary.

yeah because this question came to mind when 1 dude literally just blurted out the N word casually in front of a black person, indicating it's ~not that serious~ among their society. Which later on he tried to explain it nicely about the word (i'm not sure if it's really nicely or he's just having a hard time thinking the english sentences)
