Idiotic Black Dude on Korean Bus Misunderstanding Elderly Man
From Adrian H.: "Wow. Infuriating. An elderly man told a black man on a Korean bus 'Neega yohgee anjuh' - which means, 'You can sit here.' The guy understood it as another N word. I wish he spoke Korean, or someone on that bus spoke English. Or that someone actually stepped in instead of watching it all go down. But Koreans are perennial bystanders. Miscommunication & misunderstanding account for a whole lot of the world's problems."
