People have the nerve to make ridicule of North Korea, while it’s inhabitants are dying from malnutrition due to starvation, torture, etc.
As much as I enjoy meme’s, I can’t find any humor in the ridicule that is being made towards Kim Jong Un. My boyfriend is Korean, my classmates are Korean and some of my closest friends are Korean. It is very difficult to find humor in a situation such as this one. I don’t support Kim Jong Un and his actions, and to have people so close to me expressing their fears for their families in South Korea…it’s hard.
Just some background info, I grew up in a country that was under a dictatorship and I was fortunate enough to be born after the dictatorship was over, but I experienced the aftermath of communism. It is still a third world country, it still lives under poverty. I grew up with the daily sight of children begging for money in the streets, starving and being unable to do anything about it which was due to my young age.Though I may no longer live there, I visit frequently, it hasn’t changed.
I feel very privilaged to live in the US, don’get me wrong, but as an outsider, it’s very difficult to take american culture seriously.
