Some of you may remember this case about an Indian man who was racially slurred by a Korean man while riding the bus with a female Korean friend. Well the Korean man is now being prosecuted for his racist remarks:
India-born professor Hussein, who with the arrest by Bucheon prosecutors of 31-year old Mr. Park on charges of making racially discriminatory remarks became responsible for the country’s first-ever such arrest, has expressed frustration with the handling of the incident.
After the arrest became public, Prof. Hussein said, “during the police investigation we were encouraged to reach a settlement, and Mr. Park then started to verbally assault me again while the police simply watched. If I had been a white person this would have never happened.” He added, “this is not about punishing Mr. Park. Koreans should use this case as a way to think about the racial double standard that exists between whites and non-whites.” [Korea Beat]

Mr. Hussein still has this thing against white people in Korea. I can assure Mr. Hussein that whitey gets his fair share of crap in Korea as well especially by drunk ajushis who see you with a Korean woman, which is exactly what happened to Mr. Hussein.
Times are either changing in South Korea or Mr. Hussein has some powerful friends because an incident like this I would never take to the police or the courts considering the likelihood of getting screwed by both.
