A video, which shows an African-American attacking an old man on a local bus, has caused adverse reaction from Korean netizens.

In the video, the young man wearing a blue T-shirt and a blue cap is mocking the old man, provoking an argument. He is saying bad words repeatedly not only in his native language but also in awkward Korean.

Because he's speaking English ("in his native language") with an American ghetto accent.

the video. Download before it's pulled from youtube.

'Cause, doncha know, only in the U.S. would a black man be subjected to years and generations of institutionalized racism, thereby becoming steeped in quiet, suppressed rage and being forced, against his normally quiet and gentle demeanor, to finally lash out against the injustice heaped upon all of his ethnic group.

Oh, yeah -- < /SARC>

From the video.... he sounds American to me. He also seems to be enjoying tormenting and abusing the people. Just a thought.

In the video, he speaks American black English, and acts "inner city". This is bad. The only reason I can think that such a person would be in Korea would be if he was in, or associated with, the US military.

With hair that long? Does the military allow longer hair styles for men? (I truly don’t know the answer but I have only seen the military with short hair)

Associated at best, maybe he has a Wife in the Service. That haircut, or lack of is decidedly not USA Military issue.

That was my first thought also until I watched the video in which his appearance and demeanor convinces me he is not in or connected with the military.

Absolutely not. No branch of our services would allow hair length that excessive. If that guy is in any way connected to our armed forces it would be as a civilian contractor.

One would hope that he was arrested and handed over to Korean authorities for justice.

People like him are bad enough here but doubly embarrassing representing our country overseas.

Because most people are sheep. “I can intervene, possibly get a beating, and spend the evening in the ER, followed by months of expensive medical treatment and legal proceedings, and possibly a divorce after hearing my wife scream ‘why did you have to get involved?’ over and over... or I can look the other way and be enjoying a scotch on my sofa at home in fifteen minutes.” This sort of thinking is typical of the average “man”, in Korea and right here in the USA.

Of course, no real man could stand and watch a feral human such as this terrorize a woman. Going to jail and/or getting beaten senseless are not the worst thing in the world. I’d step in, and let the chips fall where they may.

First of all, Asians can be very restrained in their reactions to this sort of thing. Second, the police are the main sources of such intervention and they are not encouraged to take the law into their own hands. Third, they have probably just learned more about our problems that we have to deal with here at home.

Probably. I loook forward to a follow up on this.

It sounds like blacks are now so excited about getting away with all they have that they are now taking their antics worldwide to see how much they can get away with.

I’m thinking the guy was associated with AAFES (the BX) or a contractor who works for the US government. I would imagine that the US military is looking for this guy and he will be turned over to the Koreans.

Good. I hope they do. It is obvious from the video that this wasn’t over some sort of dispute. This man seems to be enjoying picking on people... even pulling on the woman’s arm. Not a good representation of what an American is... in my opinion.

Just you wait; soon they will be acting up in other parts like Asia and soon we’ll see all sorts of stories popping up about how blacks have been harrassing the citizenry in those parts. Soon they’ll be going to China, Japan, who knows where else to start pushing people around. If their precious Obama can do it, so can they. If Obama is reelected, they’ll be unstoppable.

Well, most Asians have a highly non-PC view of blacks that they have no problems being open about (to themselves and others aroudn them) and it will be enjoyable hearing about his punishment. Arab Muslims personally hate blacks and feel no real kinship wiht them, be they Muslim or Christian.

Just spreading the ghetto lingo and love around the world he is. Not sure it warrants two in the chest, but certainly a
2x4 upside the head is in order. Then smash his kneecaps to remind his sorry excuse for a human that being a bully does not pay.

If you aren’t a member of the military you are subject to Korean law. Even military members are subject to Korean law first but its customary for the Koreans to turn them over to the US authorities.

I live in a southern city. After the 2008 election the local minority population was incredibly rude and difficult. But have recently noticed a change in attitude; for the better. Wondering if maybe they know B. Hussein is wrecking everything.

Of course, they’ll vote for him again but the cocky attitude has diminished. Guess they don’t want to hear us saying “I told you so.”

“First of all, Asians can be very restrained in their reactions to this sort of thing.”

Depends when, where and for how long. I’ve seen Thais just shrug at obnoxious Westerners here, but also, if they crossed a line and grabbing a woman would qualify, the odds are very high of eating an elbow to the jaw or a front kick to the groin. Of course they will smile as they do it!

When I was in the army many moons ago, africans had big afros. They would wear a part of a woman’s pantyhose on their heads under their issue fatigue ballcap which would pack their hair down to regulation length. When off duty and off post, they’d pull the pantyhose off and their afros would unwind and spring out.

Unless the military has REALLY changed:

If a dependent child: he will shortly be living with relatives in the states as he will be asked to leave.

If a spouse: wife will soon be on an unaccompanied tour as he will be asked to leave

If a civilian contractor: bub-bye.

Throw him in a Korean jail.
