What Ill-Bred Nationalism Does to One's Mind

Below is the video of a Chinese mob, most of them being college students in Seoul, that corners a couple of Korean pro-Tibet protesters in a hotel lobby and beating them up, in the heart of Seoul:

And in response to this, in the making is a nationalist organization named “짱깨 척살단”, with not a small number of college students, which aims to protest and terrorize Chinese people living in South Korea.

A fine example of ill-bred nationalism consuming even intelligentsia people.  Dot dot dot.


Grotesque is the right word, because "척살단" means "clan of people beating others to death"
Wow. I take it the word preceding that has something to do with Chinese people?

I'm willing to bet the very next thing that happens is the Chinese government scolding the South Korean government for not doing more to control its citizens. More lovely hypocrisy -- ignore the stuff that favours you; scream bloody murder about the stuff that doesn't.
Yup, 짱깨 is a derogatory word that denotes Chinese people; think of "Chinks" here.
Understandable, but at the same time, very regrettable. sigh...
