It’s time to crown a Korean winner
By Stephen I. Diaz
Faces of Korean pageant girls who looked like clones.
Such was the unfair and a bit creepy depiction of Korean pageant contestants whose photo collage (see photo above) became viral in 2014. I would consider that as a shallow way to generalize young women who work so hard to achieve something. In a society where being politically correct has become the norm, such humorous approach would most likely fall under the category of racism. Yes, we Asians are usually labeled as looking almost the same, because of our slanted eyes and straight black hair. But, it should not be a reason to generalize these women who became subjects of ridiculr in forms of satires and hyperboles.
