Is North Korea a racist state?

From Reuters:

“Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” an unnamed spokesman for the commission said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency, using a term seemingly designed to cause racial offence that North Korea has used before.

  1. Anyone watched the “Interview”? It never ceases to amaze me how stupid many chumps are, when they decided to show the film at some indie theater, and they were lining up and selling out all the tickets, as the marketeers were playing mental games with them for a movie that was to lose money anyway, and would not have received the same reception, had the fiasco never happened.

  2. BR Myers has a book on this, says they’re so obsessed with racial purity that they force women coming back from China pregnant to get abortions.

    I wonder how this squares with this worship of Dennis Rodman.

  3. Is North Korea a racist state?

    Yes. Their government propagandizes Korean racial superiority. Christopher Hitchens wrote an article about it.

    “Obama always goes reckless in words and deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,”

    I’m disappointed, frankly, they didn’t work Ebola into the press release. Next time they should have Lion write up official North Korean racial communications.

    • One thing that struck me about the Hitchens article was the fact that he seemed more horrified by the fact that North Koreans don’t want to mate with blacks than anything else

      “One evening, as we tried to dine on some gristly bits of duck, he mentioned yet another reason why the day should not long be postponed when the whole peninsula was united under the beaming rule of the Dear Leader. The people of South Korea, he pointed out, were becoming mongrelized. They wedded foreigners—even black American soldiers, or so he’d heard to his evident disgust—and were losing their purity and distinction. Not for Mr. Chae the charm of the ethnic mosaic, but rather a rigid and unpolluted uniformity.”

      South Koreans are also racist.

        Some gradient of racism is the norm everywhere except Western white nations.

        Not as much, from what I hear.

        True, but if South Korea is only 30% as racist as the North that’s still plenty prejudiced.

  4. Yes, it’s an ethnically homogeneous state where no one who is not ethnically Korean has any authority.

    Ripe target for a diversity campaign? This infantile taunt shows North Korean communists are much more racist than the NYPD.

    • Joseph Dresnok, the last surviving US defector to NoKo (if he’s even still alive) was never given a Korean woman to marry; his first wife was romanian and the second wife the daughter of an african diplomat and a korean woman. I believe both marriages were arranged by the government.

      Interesting that South Korea consistently outranks North Korea in international math olympiad- an accidental experiment in nature vs nurture.

      • Didn’t the DPRK generally match non-Koreans up with other non-Koreans when arranging spouses for the people whom they had kidnapped and for other defectors? Hitomi Soga, a Japanese girl kidnapped off the streets of her hometown, was married to the US Army defector Robert Jenkins, and their children, who look typically White-Asian, have Japanese and English names. I remember back when Jenkins’ story first came out that they didn’t seem to be Koreanizing the children as you might expect.

        Incidentally, I once visited the DPRK on an organized tour from China. Absolutely fascinating, though the non-stop anti-US propaganda can be a bit much. They do everything possible to present themselves as an embattled, beleaguered impoverished nation that just wants to be understood, but there are many cracks through which you can see what North Korea really is.

      • A lot of the North Korean elite fled to the South before and during the Korean war. On top of that, Stalinist societies distrust intelligent people and tend to have them killed. That confuses the issue somewhat, the same way that higher IQ scores in West Germany compared to East Germany could be nurture, but may also be due to internal emigration.

  6. Just think, there are liberal art faculty members nation-wide right now thinking of ways to incorporate this into their coursework. Here’s some possible ways:

    1) Kim Jung-un is a White-Asian;
    2) Racism is so systemic, pervasive and powerful that it is even capable of migrating over the DMZ and infecting the N. Korean population (the confirmation bias approach);
    3) They are simply mimicking Obama’s Republican enemies;
    4) They learned it from the whites;
    5) Kim’s a communist-Republican;
    5) This is why we need international laws governing White-Asian privilege.

      • The North Koreans are certainly social conservatives. Right wingers in the US are always conflating conservatism with libertarianism. North Koreans believe in sexual abstinence before marriage, preserving the purity of the race, respect for authority and tradition, decorum and neat personal presentation at all public events, religious orthodoxy (although the religion is a bizarre leader cult), and maintaining social hierarchy. By European standards these are pretty standard conservative positions. In most of the world “liberty” and “personal freedom” are left wing values, and as the US demonstrates, these values degenerate pretty quickly into things like gay marriage, drug use and high crime rates. You can’t map US poles of “left” and “right” onto foreign cultures.

  7. I’m not sure if any other analogy wold have worked. Incompetent people are likened to Primates because primates have the closest genomic similarity to humans, while exhibiting negative traits like recklessness, and primates are not as smart. But Obama has been such a lousy president that it’s an insult to primates to compare him to one.

        Does anyone know whether Africans themselves see the same resemblance to apes that I’m sure most whites see no matter how hard we might try to block it from our consciousness?

        For the record, chimpanzees share some white characteristics too: they have fair skin and straight (not “textured”) hair, and they rarely resort to arson to take revenge.

      • “Africans, with their dark skin and wide nostrils *look* more like apes than other races.”

        A South Korean student who was attending a private high school in the US, once told me (seriously it seemed) that Europeans were more closely related to apes because they have more body hair. I told him that I thought that he was mistaken and that one could make a similar observation about the flatter face and nose that most East Asians have. I’m not sure why he thought it was a good idea to tell me this or if what I said made him think again, but I don’t remember him getting angry about it.

  8. North Korea is an openly racist state, they believe first and foremost in maintaining the purity of the Korean people. An American academic named BR Myers actually makes a good case that North Korean ideology was heavily influenced by the racist nationalism of the Japanese colonial occupation, just substituting “Korean” for “Japanese.” It is probably more of a “fascist” state at this point than “Communist”, but both leftists and conservatives outside Korea seem to have a vested interest in ignoring that.

    • What doesn’t get a lot of play in Western media is that Kim Jong-Un has actually been introducing a lot of market reforms, and the standard of living for average North Koreans has risen fairly dramatically in the past few years. Farmers are allowed to keep more of their crops, small scale trading is allowed, and state enterprises are being rationalised. Kim is trying to follow a Chinese reform program, but not moving so fast that he undermines the ideological rationale for the Kim clan being in power. It is a difficult tightrope to walk.

  13. BTW – here’s the kind of diversionary right-wing equivalency drivel that keeps huge segments of the Right from fully recognizing and incorporating HBD into their thinking. The ‘sure there’s racism everywhere, but the Left is worse at it’ nonsense. You can’t imagine how many conservatives help keep the marginal notion of ‘racism’ as a psycho-social disturbance alive by adopting such rhetoric as their defence to charges of racism. It would be far better to say that most races adopt strategies for dealing with members of other races that rationally reflect the threat, if any, presented. http://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2014/12/21/racism-right-and-left-one-mans-opinion/?singlepage=true

    Yes, blacks definitely notice when one of their members is particularly simian-like.

    While playing High School basketball (one of 2 whites on team) back in the 90’s the players would always call Patrick Ewing “monkey man,” saying he looked like an ape. Or they would laugh at each other, calling each other gorilla or saying things like “you look like something out of Congo [the movie]”.
