PEOPLE is racist?


This is old news by now, but I’m still going to write about it because I have nothing better to do than be sarcastic on the internet. PEOPLE magazine recently ran a blurb about the up and coming Asian star Rain who hails from that distant land they call Korea. It’s been said he’s pretty big over there and apparently in America as well since he’s been edging out Stephen Colbert on Time’s 100 Most Influential People list. Anyway, the article has Rain’s thoughts on learning English, worldwide food and women. Naturally, PEOPLE accompanied this feature with a picture of Rain. Except, that isn’t Rain in the picture. It’s another Asian guy named Karl Yune, brother of Rick Yune. Somewhere out there Rain sighed, “Not again.” Although, in PEOPLE’s defense, it’s an easy mistake. They both have long hair and, of course, are Asian.
