African Soccer

I recieved the picture below from a concerned resident of Seoul that asked me to post it. The picture was taken at lunch time today, outside the Dong-A newspaper building in Kwanghwamoon, downtown Seoul.

African Soccer
Africans portrayed as primitive tribesmen

The writing on the sign says “The Dong-A Ilbo supports the Korean team”. (view large size picture here)

    Can’t you see?

    Koreans are trying their best to relate to people in Africa.

    All joking aside, how do you go from looking at this billboard to “they support Korean soccer team” without reading the text?

    Every time I think that I think I can’t be more embarrassed by my countrymen, my expectation is exeeded. Jesus Christ.

    uhm, arn’t they just wearing shorts? why assume they are tribesmen? I’ve seen people play soccer without shirts, especialy in hot countries, brazil for instance. but yea, I get what you’re saying, just dont read into it too much. wtf is up with the elephant anyways. it should be two lions!
