Racism In South Korea

My life would be considerably different in South Korea at this time, for one I can't speak Korean but lets say I did not need to. 
My life would still be very different because of racial differences. I would have a considerably hard time getting a job or even getting around on public transportation, people would either avoid me completely, yell racial insults and slurs at me or even called mixed or un-pure blood because I was not Korean. 
people like me would have been treated badly if they moved to South Korea. they might even be denied jobs and marriage.
My privileges would be very different even if I was half South Korean, I would would be called a mixed blood and would still not have access to the same opportunities.

Test Results

I do not know what to think about my test results, I was surprised but now I that I think about I don't really know.
I thought that my results would be more balanced but I guess that I was wrong, expanding on what I said earlier I think that now I get why. I was raised in a house where my dad did the work and my mom stayed at home with us, at least for as long as we weren't old enough to go to school, then she went to work. But my point is that I was affected by it in the time of my life that made me who I am today, so I may make myself think one thing but that part of me will always make the same decisions.

Schooling In India

Schooling In India

1.)If I lived in India in the places this article talks about I would have had to take care of my parents their whole lives because there would be no places where they could go but I would get to go to school, get my full education and be seen an permanent family members to my parents.
But if I was a girl I would most likely not get my full education, I might be pushed into a arranged marriage and would be seen as the family member that would go on to live with someone else by my parents.
2.)I would have all of the privileges that I have now but women would not.
3.)I would not change my behavior if I was a man or woman I would still try to do as good in school and do what I thought was best.
4.)As far as I can see I would have the same rights if I was male but according to the article women do not have the same ones.
