Koreans More Racist Than Chinese?

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 5, 2013

Interesting article, wondering if it is true?

“Koreans are not very tolerant of other races despite their relatively high levels of education and income, the World Values Survey finds according to the Washington Post.

The survey polled people in more than 80 countries to find out who they would or would not want as neighbors. Countries were ranked in seven levels of racial tolerance, and Korea was in the second-most intolerant category.

Some 36.4 percent of Koreans said they would not want someone from a different race as their neighbor. In Japan and China, the proportion was less than 20 percent.”
