Currently, a few (VERY FEW) Koreans are apparently on strike against a certain McDonald’s in Flushing, New York because they kicked out old people. Put out of context, that might seem racist, or even rude. But let me put it in contact for you - these old people buy one cup of coffee and sit there from start to finish. From 5:30 AM to 11:00 PM. You might think I’m exaggerating. I’m not.
As you can see from the picture, NONE of the old men have bought anything above a coffee. Actually, this picture is mild - sometimes a group of eight buy 1. These people even buy outside food, bring it into MCD, and eat it there. It’s ridiculous.
It has nothing to do with respecting elders. Some of the people quoted in the NYT article are incredibly stupid. It’s not racism. The MCD is situated in the middle of Flushing, right smack dab in the middle of a Korean community. You can’t be a racist and run that store. It doesn’t make sense. Also, maybe it’d be racism if there were a bunch of other races doing the same thing, and only the Koreans were kicked out. Except other people don’t do this.
The NYT article makes it sound like Koreans are behind this stupid MCD boycott, but let me tell you the truth - they’re not. The Koryodang that used to be in Flushing had to get rid of their bathroom because the elderly would come in, buy a cup of coffee, and take up the entire space for the entire day. It was their only way of getting them to leave. The same thing happens for cafes all around the world. My own parents were debating having a cafe in their bookstore, except my dad ultimately decided against it because he was afraid of this exact thing happening. The Korean community gets it. We’re sick of this behavior, too.
And Christine Colligan? Oh, god, Christine Colligan. Don’t let her name fool you - this is a Korean lady. She only has a non-Korean last name because she married a non-Korean guy. My mom knows her well because she come into my parents’ bookstore often to preach nonsense.
This is a woman who takes an army of old men with her to break up protests and candle rallies, calling everyone there spies from North Korea.
You see that? That’s Miss Colligan, in red. With her old grandpa buddies, breaking up a peaceful protest and cursing out everyone there. The protest in Times Square demanded to bring down president Park Geun Hye, who’s now been revealed to have gotten to her seat illegally. Dear Miss Colligan was paid by the Korean NSA to break up the rally who demanded this illegal president off from her seat.
So why did I bring this up? Why is she so against MCD? Because her dear elderly friends who went around telling students who wanted justice that they were North Korean spies are affected by this, that’s why. She’s not very liked among the Korean society here.
I think I’m gonna go get myself some MCD.
Note: I know a majority of everyone had an amazing time but for the people in the pit (me included) not so much. So if you don’t want your perfect night to be ruined then please don’t read this post because this was just my bad experience and I just need to express my feelings about this.
