[KS] North Korea says multiracialism is poison

I have heard from people in China that the Chinese army, with much
benevolence, left many soldiers behind in N Korea after the war in 1953 to
do construction projects as well as marry local women and father children so
as to repopulate North Korea. The NK leaders were very ashamed of this which
led to asking the Chinese to leave in 1958. Today, many Chinese people tell
this story, no matter how much is actually true. They feel the North Koreans
have not been properly grateful for all the Fatherly efforts they put in. Of
course, it is important to realize that there are many Korean ethnic people
in NE China. Even in China, with their distinct minority people designation,
it seems to me that there is not much mixing with other ethnic groups.
However, there does not seem to be a stigma attached to it.
