Well educated Koreans Anti American

July 3rd, 2005 . by Matt

This news story confirms what I have always thought about Korean Anti Americanism.

In South Korea, 69.2 percent of those with low education think the United States is a positive influence, while only 45.8 percent of those with a high education agree.

Some people have claimed that the higher the education, the less Anti American (or anti-anything) they are, but that has been belied by my personal observations and this study. In anything to do with foreign countries, the more educated the Korean, the worse opinion he has of them.

With this data, I dont think people can dismiss Koreans that are prejudiced against foreigners as ‘uneducated’.

    >高い教育をもつ人々の45.8パーセントだけが同意する

    高い教育………。そんなにいないだろうね。(笑
    多く見積もっても、10%弱ぐらいじゃないかな? 本気で。

    Mattさんからの返事をもらった記事のところに、返事を書こうかと思ったけど、新しい記事が出ていたのでこちらに書かせてもらいます。

    >一つ: 韓国人の異人に対する悪意によって、韓国人女性と付き合う外人を見張るインターネットサイトがいっぱい発生している。

    やはりあいつらは斜め上をいっている。orz
    まだ白人だからいいけど、これが日本人だったらと考えると………。頭が痛い。
    男が外国人と付き合うのはいいが、女が外国人、得に日本人と付き合うとなるとファビョル民族だからなぁ。
    それに朝鮮人と結婚した外国人女性の9割は離婚してしまう。原因は夫の暴力。男尊女卑の国だから、人のいる前でも平気で女を殴る。それも外国人(特にアジア人)の場合、奴隷のように扱われる。なのにそれを知らない人が沢山いる。

    >そういう話は私も聞いたことがあります。私はポリシーとして遺伝子から調べます。

    そうですね。DNA検査が一番いい。けどそれをやろうとするとあいつらは「ウリを信用できないのか!これは差別ニダ!」とファビョル。ホントろくでもないのが多い。

    >彼女は美しくてね、性格も良くて。

    整形じゃないですか?(笑 
    性格も?猫をかぶっていただけか、宝くじ当たるくらいの確率で、本当に性格がよかったかのどちらかだね。まぁ、外国に住んでいるチョンのほうがまともなのが多いのも事実だけど。

    話は変わるけど、いつも返事をしてくれて本当にありがとうございます。

    Such people may be “well educated”, but they remain quite ignorant nonetheless.

    What does “well educated” mean? That a person has been to university? Half of the people at university might be tree-hugging lefties, but the other half are conservative old boys, strengthening the networks they have made in the high school their parents sent them to.

    “Well educated” does not sit anywhere on the political (nationalist) spectrum in Australia. Perhaps it is only children of conservative families who can afford to get further education in Korea.

    I still argue that they are “uneducated.” I mean, after all, it is those who are thoroughly indoctrinated and mind-raped by their society “teaching” their brethren. Lest we forget that Korean universities give immunity to the violent , terroristic student radicals so long as they stay on their campuses, and universities in Korea are hotbeds for xenophobic demonstrations. Is that “education”? How about the Korean Teacher’s Union? How can the nationa be considered well-rounded in education when they have no concept of how the rest of the world works? One coudl easily swear they were attending mosques rather than institutions of “higher” learning.

    Actually, I fully agree with what you are saying. Education is actually the problem. What I meant to do was take a shot at the many deluded foreigners (and yes, they are legion when it comes to Korea) that automatically assume that anti foreigner Koreans dont have a university education.

    I sincerely have doubts about the quality of higher education in Korea (not even one Korean university in the Asia-Pacific ‘Top 20’ universities). Nor have I seen any evidence of the famed Korean ‘High IQ’.

    I firmly believe that this is the real “Korea Life Blog,” unlike a certain site that makes up stories about Korea and puts the sunshine over grave realities foreingers and Koreans themselves face.

    The truth will set it free…

    Korea’s supposed to be an independent state, so it’s up to them to say whatever they like about America. If they don’t like Yanks, so be it. Who cares even if the Yank army pulls out and the South is occupied by the North and then by the Commy China? I really don’t give a shit.I’m sure the Chinese know how to treat Koreans and make them to shut the fuck up.

    That pretty much agrees with America.

    The dumb fucks from the corn/pig/chicken/bible belt are where Dubya gets all his votes.

    Although I will say that America has a large percentage of “highly educated” folks who are under the false assumption that they need Dubya to protect them from the “terra-ist” menace.

    What a bunch of turd brains.

    Whatever.

    .

    Just like university professors in the West. Both the most highly educated and most detached from reality.

    Korean thinks good things happen because they are a smart tribe. Korean thinks bad things happen, not because they are not smart enough, but because Japan and the United States are doing bad things to Korea. Obviously the “smart” tribe is not smart enough to realize there are many contradictions in them. This is how I enjoy watching them.

    Even before reading this statistic, I’ve always assumed that those with college degrees would be more anti-american than those who have not had the opportunity to attend college. Anti-American sentiment in Korea is largely carried by the younger generation, those who are privy to education. After all, the old veterans guarding MacArthur’s statue probably didn’t get a chance to go to school after the war. Not many Koreans that age did. So of course any statistic would show a correlation between education and anti-americanism, but this is simply because anti-americanism is reflected in the younger generation.

    It does not however suggest that education has anything at all to do with Anti-Americanism. That’s one of the oldest fallacies: Post hoc, ergo propter hoc (After this, therefore because of this.). Because the kids are more often anti-american, I bet you could also gather statistics showing that those who buy designer jeans are also more of anti-american. It’s more reasonable to assume that this is because the old guys don’t buy designer jeans than to conclude that the designer jeans are making Koreans anti-american.

    Great perspective, reader. I agree with you in part. Still, are Korean universities teaching Anti Americanism? Maybe you can tell me about it.

    The statistics clearly suggest education is corelated with the attitude toward the US.
    I can not find the blogger claim that it is causally related to anti-Americanism as reader say.
    reader’s comment is a typical example of misinterpretation, which does not have to be corelated with lower education.

    reader 2,
    My point was precisely that it is NOT causally related, but only a correlation. Please read my post more thoroughly.

    reader
    sorry, maybe I misinterpreted you.
    I though you were saying Matt is claiming education is causally realated to the attitude toward the US while it is in fact just correlated to the attitude toward the US.
    In my interpretation, Matt is not saying it is causally related to the attitude toward the US. He is just saying that ” the more educated the Korean, the worse opinion he has of them.” He does not say more education make his opinion of the US worse.
