"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 wonder how it originated? Like was it first used as an anti-black term or did it become that over time? I'm trying to think of a similar term in U.S. English (can be insulting to dark-skinned people but not necessarily aimed specifically at black people, while also being an anti-black insult) and I can't think of anything. Everything I can think of is either meant specifically to attack black people or not aimed at us at all.
