2/3     Maybe old news - McCain's racist remark from Seattle Post-Intelligencer
        March 2, 2000:
        \_ I've heard it before.  I was always a little confused though.
           Doesn't 'gook' refer to Koreans?
           \_ Generally considered a reference to Vietnamese. Might have been
              repurposed from Korean Conflict.
              \_ I've heard the term referenced against both, but more often
                 referenced against Vietnamese.
           \_ More to the point, it's a word the soldiers used to refer to the
        \- hanguk -> korea. Dae Han Min Gook!
        \_ If ever I would forgive anyone for racism, it's McCain for being
           racist against Vietnamese.
