North Korea: Multiracial Koreas opposed

Antti Leppänen at Hunjangûi karûch'im translates and blogs about a recent North Korean newspaper editorial which argues against multiculturalism in South Korea:

“The article refers to the ‘recently appearing bizarre pursuits for a multinational, multiracial society in South Korea, which will weaken (kôsehada) the basic characteristics of our nation (minjok). (Kôsehada means also “to castrate”.) It names, ironically enough (but this is DPRK), the ‘pro-US flunkeyist forces’ as the biggest perpretrators in these heinous acts against the purity of the nation.”
