I received this email from a ‘fan’. In it he says that Occidentalism is racist on the level of a Nazi website, and that the problem with the world is people like me with sites like mine.
(note: if i sent this to the wrong address, then I am
very sorry. I am writing to an address I believe that
is the email of the starter of the site Occidentalism.
If you are not that person, don’t bother reading the
rest, just delete this message. If not, read on)
Shame on you.
I know that Korea has it’s faults. Yes, I am Korean.
But, can’t everyone just forget about rasicm? I mean,
it’s people like you who spread hate and disaster
amongest us. Its really, very, sad. Every country has
it’s faults. Right now Korea is being run by a
not-too-smart president. But Japan has it’s faults
too. And that’s no excuse to have an anti-korean site.
This is almost as bad, or as bad as the Nazi site I
And please, I know that you might post this on, and
laugh at my mistakes, and say that this e-mail is
ridiclous. But remeber to put this part on as well. I
will be checking on your site to see if you did do it.
And if you don’t post it, it doesn’t matter.
You know, it’s just people like you who spread hate.
There are people like you in America, Korea, Japan,
Australia, France, South Africa, India, everywhere. It
is not Korea’s fault, or Japan’s fault.
Please, stop this ridiculous site. It is disgusting.
This is not a hate mail. I know, this is another thing
that you will point out and laugh at. This is not hate
mail? What a hypocrite!!
No, I am writing to tell you that I believe that
racism is not the way to go.
If I did not make a difference, well, at least I
tried. If I did, I am happy to make a difference.
But whatever you do, do not ignore this message. And
lastly, I am sorry if you look at this message and
laugh me off. I truely am. Not for me, not for you,
but for how the world is completely messed up.
What a truely horrible site.
And one more thing.
I’ll bet that you post up only the most vulgar emails
from people imploring you to tear down this site. Post
this email as well, please.
I am not going to respond to this point by point. I think the readers know the difference between the reality, and what is written in that email.
