If U R Young and White, U R Alright

I wish I could say this wasn't true, and Korea wasn't a racist kind of country, but it really is.  There seems to be a hierarchy of Koreans at the top, whities next, then other Asians, followed up by black/brown people.  If you're Asian, or brown or black, or any other shade besides white, you'll probably have quite a hard time finding a job in this country.  It's not impossible, but you'll just have to search a bit harder.  And in a land where you must send a picture with your resume, it's impossible to hide.

That said, if you're young, with blond hair, from North America you should snap up a prime job in no time.  A female is even better. 

Sorry for the lack up updates on the blog.  Still fighting the yellow dust cold of death and need to muster up all my energy just to get to class and back.
