25 ways to tokenize or alienate a non-white person around you

UPDATE (1 Feb 2012): Here’s an updated link, since the original post is gone.

Also, I kinda get that it might look like I missed the point of the original posting, but I don’t think I did. I just think it’s interesting how much of it applies to how all kinds of societies talk about the people who are outsiders the them…

ORIGINAL POST: Reading this list, I’m almost inspired to try get a few people to write one up for the Korean setting, titled, “25 ways to tokenize or alienate a non-Korean person around you.” I may well do it, maybe, if I can, in Korean. (I’ll need a copyeditor.) Maybe even send it to one of the papers. Who knows, with all the furore about mixed-race Koreans these days, they may even print it.
