I'm pretty sure there aren't many people in the world who need help in upholding racist stereotypes about Black people. We can trace this challenge to a lot of root causes, but there's always room for a big THANKS A LOT to Harriet Beecher Stowe and her helpful tome.

I can halfway understand why the fine people of Seoul chose to honor those images with a cultural establishment all their own - a country bar in homage to the 19th century novel and its loving mammy and dutiful servant. Why wouldn't you want a hug from a big-chested woman or get your soju mojito (or whatever) with a smile and a "yessuh"?

Fuck that.
