That may help your cheery world along, or maybe it'll at least cut into the suffering part of it all. Try to think of it that way for a minute. Maybe more.
    I'm glad that more people weren't killed, but that wasn't the issue, was it ... people should at least wait until the bodies are cold before they start making jokes about a plane crash .,.

    thanks for helping me make the point the others are missing on this thread ....

    btw, have Asian pilots had more plane crashes than non Asians?

    I'd have to go back to respond to you Speedy, but I just flew cross country and I'm too tired to explain this to you ... so I'll pass ... have a good night ...

    Korean newsanchor says it was "lucky" only Chinese were killed in Asiana crash.

    South Korean TV presenter says it's 'lucky' that only Chinese died in Asiana crash | South China Morning Post


    I think a certain Korean TV station has a little apologizing of its own to do.

    That's your issue - not necessarily mine. 288 people survived, which is something to be thankful for. Was the joke appropriate? Nah. Pretty stupid and insensitive. None the less funny - regardless of your reservations. I seriously doubt the pilots are highly offended. I expect they're grateful they're alive, and have more important concerns than an ill-considered joke. Hey, you don't think the Koreans ever make such jokes about Americans, do you?

    But is it anymore racist than the Christmas Story sequence with the singing Chinese waiters singing Sirent Wight?
    I believe you mean that is so "wong"
