North Korea: Racist State

Good read:
North Korea's Race Problem: What I Learned from Reading Kim Jong Il's Propaganda - By B.R. Myers:
The Korean people are too pure-blooded, and so too virtuous, to survive in this evil world without a great parental leader. This paranoid nationalism might sound crude and puerile, but it is only in this ideological context that the country's distinguishing characteristics, which the outside world has long found so baffling, make perfect sense. Up close, North Korea is not Stalinist -- it's simply racist.
