"It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one's self through the eyes of others, of measuring one's soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity." W.E.B Dubois (on double consciousness)

I was beyond reluctant to answer those questions of black identity in South Korea. I'd have that question constantly posed by my Black, White, and Korean friends. In fact, most expats living in South Korea share a lot of the same experiences—we're essentially people mangled in the homogeneous sphere—where being a foreigner, regardless of ethnic background, will garner a lot of attention.
