REMEMBERING THE REAL RIOT VICTIMS: Of all the stories I've been reading about the 10-year anniversary of the 1992 riots, this op-ed in the L.A. Times is about the only one that actually says what I think. In fact, it's the only one that even discusses the plight of Korean American merchants, the primary targets of the rioters and the real victims of the whole ordeal. I was beginning to wonder if I was the only one who was still mad. White liberal guilt only goes so far, I guess, at least in California. The Atlanta metropolitan area is home to something like 30,000 Korean Americans. If you asked them, I'll bet half are refugees from these riots. EDITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Park has many fine qualities, but one quality which he is still developing is the ability to use Blogger. While he goes about that task, I'm going to do this post for him.
