Thank you for your article. Yes, I made the same assumption because in my eyes the children didn’t look Korean. I lived and worked in Korea for 2 years as a teacher and the children in the video were not immediately identifiable as Korean. Also her level of panic seemed to be that of someone who would “get in trouble” for the snafu. I don’t know that every assumption is based in something sinister or negative. If someone is offended at the idea of nanny vs mom, I wonder why? It’s not a demeaning label. However, there is something wrong with publishing or acting on information based on an assumption. The fact that an alternative theory never enters the mind may mean that there’s more at work than an innocent assumption.
