North Korea: Multiracial Koreas opposed

Categories: East Asia, North Korea, South Korea, Ethnicity & Race, Governance, Media & Journalism

Antti Leppänen at Hunjangûi karûch'im translates and blogs about [1]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 [2]), the ‘pro-US flunkeyist forces’ as the biggest perpretrators in these heinous acts against the purity of the nation.”
