    13. 13. Testimonials• “Koreans still have this stereotype that all ‘foreigners’ are white people. So, when they see a Korean woman walking with a man from South Asia or from an Arab country, they give the couple a disdainful look.” (a Korean woman married to a Pakistani)• “When I travel with my husband, we avoid buses and subways.” (a Korean woman married to a Pakistani)• Jean, 36, a Filipina who married a Korean in 2007 and moved to Korea the same year. She is happily married to her husband but said Koreans regard foreign spouses and their children as lower in social status.• Park Israr, a Pakistani native, and his wife Park Young-keum have experienced insults in the neighborhood and on the streets. “If I make a mistake, drivers on the streets call me names about my skin, and many times I have to overcome people’s biased ideas about being Korean .”• Ms. Hahn said that her father and other relatives grilled her as to whether she was dating Mr. Hussain. But when a cousin recently married a German, “all my relatives envied her, as if her marriage was a boon to our family,” she said. (a Korean woman dating an Indian) Korea Times (22 Aug 2008, 1 Nov 2009, 27 May 2007); NY Times (1 Nov 2009)

    15. 15. State-Led Multiculturalism vs. Society-Led Multiculturalism• Change comes from the people, not regulation. Education and campaign about multiculturalism are extremely important.• It is dangerous to start embracing this notion of a multicultural society, than, because it detracts from what still needs to be done, particularly regarding how Koreans perceive their own society.(Alec Haskard)
