UCLA Rant Against Asians

영어 Hint of the Day #37: Be Careful or Else….

Speaking About Sensitive Topics Should Probably Be Avoided
In English speaking countries, there are different cultural values, which is natural. The history of the people is entirely different, so the values would, of course, be different. However, in the US, in particular, discrimination based on some these issues (age and gender) is illegal. Speaking about sensitive topics rudely will get you in a lot of trouble, and quickly. The Seoul Gyopo Guide has pointed out how unacceptable it was for Korean newspapers to publish headlines which translate to “Japan Sinking.”

In the US, a famous comedian, Gilbert Gottfried, posted some very unfunny jokes about the plight of the Japanese people. His punishment? Fired on the spot.
