Jessi says she got into a fight with a guy that made racist jokes when she was in the United States

(Jessica H.o.) Jessi
Jessi talked about her experience with racism. 

On October 3t airing of MBC's 'Radio Star,' Jessi shared, "There were not many Asians in the town I lived in the United States. I was alone and this guy made fun of me for 4 years. It was racism. I held it back for 4 years then got into a fight. He didn't mess with me after that."

Jessi continued, "Violence is not the answer, but you need to have a voice and scare them."

I mean I can understand her, I think I would snap if I was being a victim of racism, also I love how she added "Violence is not the answer, but you need to have a voice and scare them." because that is true and some people don't seem to understand that sadly

I don't blame her. Racism is a terrible twisted shadow over peoples eyes. There's too much hate for the day we live in, and what every culture has had to live through already.

Good she spoke up for herself. Unfortunately racism exist everywhere in the world, theres not one country that can step up and say racism doesnt exist in their country. And shes right violence isnt the answer, standing up for your rights is so much more.

Well, first of all, I hope that he is feeling a whole lot of regret after tormenting Jessi throughout all those years with those very, very insensitive racist jokes. And second of all, ummm, of course it's why we gotta be extremely careful in what we are saying and doing during today's somewhat ultra sensitive society because at any given time, especially if it's for no stinkin' reason at all, all of those people can get very sensitive after seeing and hearing about what someone has said or done. So therefore, in this case, everyone needs to strongly prevent themselves from makingg any racially insensitive jokes and comments from here on out going forward.

I snapped at my bully after 6 years of dealing with his actions and words. He hasn't dared to say me a word since then (luckily). I approve how she said ''Violence is not the answer, but you need to have a voice and scare them."

Sadly, people are the same, everywhere. Racism, prejudice, bigotry, exclusion, superiority, hatred, injustice -- these darker elements of human nature occur (to some level) in every society. Neither America nor Korea has an edge in this regard. I've seen it in every country I've ever visited or had dealings with, and in individual communities within those countries. It's a sad statement of humanity in this supposedly enlightened age.

She held it in for 4 years, she just had enough. The fool had to be put in his place, and she's right. Violence is never the answer but sometimes you just gotta sock a son of a bitch to get the message across.

I guess I was lucky enough to grow up in a fairly diverse area of Southern California because I never experienced racism being half Asian. Nevertheless, I'm well aware that it's still a major issue we need to work out in this country.

'I was alone and this guy made fun of me for 4 years.'

That was probably the worst way for the guy to try to hit on the only Asian girl in town.

Nice to hear that the US is still a backward @ss country despite having a long history of racism and discrimination. They still don't learn from their mistakes and the history is gonna to repeat itself.

Americans are the worst hypocrits. They go apeshit when asians paint their faces black, but they have no issue with murdering muslims, electing Trump or domestic harassing of minorities.

No more hypocritical than anyone else. Many Koreans can't even accept their own race without commenting on how people are ugly and/or dark-skinned. Unfortunately, bigotry is a societal pandemic.

However koreans don't tell the rest of the world how to behave. Koreans don't make war all over the globe. Koreans don't murder foreign people to steal their ressources.

First, "apeshit" really .... and second doing black face, no matter who does is it, is very offensive and racist. It should not be just let go. Second of all, those same people who are voting for trump and doing the other stuff you said are not the ones who have an issue with blackface, they would be the ones partaking. So think before you speak please, and don't generalize all Americans, we most definetly are not the same.

Why Jessi left her home country and went to live in this country of perverts ( like the wanker Bigblueagain and the pussy grabber of Donald Duck) and racists and savages? What the American civilisation brings us? A screw up garbage like the addicted smuggler Park bom? what else? It was jessi fault to pursue her dreams far from her home land the great Korea !

Ofc, Korea is so perfect, no racism, no crime, no prostitution, no suicide, no bullies, people are nice with each others, old people live in happiness, no loneliness. Beautiful Korea! Wake up! You do it on purpose or you are really STUPID. For someone who claim to be graduated from a prestigious university. Dumb troll!

Of course we are perfect. Much better than you Yankee ! Have you heard that in Korea everyday someone doing mass killing? There are a lot of people from third world that are coming to make living in Korea and we accept them and helped them, but your pussy grabber president Donald Duck has menaced to send army to kill people who are coming from the south looking for a job in USA. Of course Korea is perfect.
