Korean American hate crime?

June 13th, 2007 . by Matt

LAPD police are investigating a group of Korean Americans for beating up 2 white men and one white woman in Los Angeles Koreatown, in a racially charged attack.

LAPD, 백인 상대 한인 인종혐오범죄 수사

(로스앤젤레스=연합뉴스) 장익상 특파원 = 로스앤젤레스경찰국(LAPD)이 코리아타운에서 백인들을 상대로 발생한 한인들의 인종혐오 범죄 신고를 접수하고 수사에 나섰다.

12일 LAPD 윌셔경찰서에 따르면 주말인 지난 8일 새벽 2시께 코리아타운 중심가에서 한인 남성 2명이 길가던 백인 남성 2명과 여성 1명 등 3명을 폭행하고 달아났다는 것.

피해자들은 경찰에서 “용의자들은 BMW 승용차를 타고 우리 곁을 지나다 먼저 영어로 욕설을 퍼부었고 이를 무시한채 계속 걸어갔으나 차에서 내려 `왜 우리의 영역인 코리아타운에 왔느냐’며 폭행하기 시작했다”고 주장했다.

For the linguistically challenged, the above says that a BMW with Korean Americans in it approached close to the 3 victims, and the Korean Americans shouted slurs at the victims, which the victims ignored. The Korean Americans then got out of the BMW and said “Why did you come to our territory, Koreatown?”, before starting to beat them up.

Interesting that this was reported in the Korean media but as far as I can see the American media is ignoring it.

    The US media may be hiding that story.

    I would never go to Koreatown. Very dangerous place. It may be a good place to get killed in a driveby. Or get shot while eating.

    I’d say Koreatown isn’t a comfortable place to be in if you are not Korean. It is a very closed community and you wouldn’t know what is what if you don’t read Hangul. When I go there alone, I only go there for grocery shopping. (I don’t like salad bowl LA to begin with…)

    With all the attention right now on immigration within the U.S. (both legal, and illegal), this would not be good story for to have published, for either side of the political fence.

    People who uphold racist immigration policies that keep members of certain countries out of the U.S. are always happy to point out that they LOVE immigrints; especially Asian ones, who are mythologized as the “ideal immirgants”. This story would do nothing to help their side of the story, and as for media sources with a much more liberal, and pro-immigration stance, this story would upset their own fantasy of people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds living together in peace and harmony (and eating each others weird foods).

    Or something like that, I dunno.

    Koreans have a long way to go before they could ever earn that title. Anyway, we are not about racism, just discussion. Enjoy.

    Wow, beating up Caucasians, 2 men and even 1 woman. Somehow, this doesn’t seem that incredible to me at all coming from Koreans. Like I’ve mentioned here before, out of all the Asian ethnic groups in America Koreans tend to be the most xenophobic and seem less likely to fit into American society. Compare them with the Chinese, whom you don’t hear in the news staking out their territory and threatening, assaulting non-Chinese in the various Chinatowns throughout the US. Or the other Asian groups for that matter in their own ethnic enclaves. Big difference.

    I hope this news spreads into the major news outlets. Koreans are so loathe to self-criticism and are too proud of their race; they need to be humbled to force them to face what’s rotten in their culture. And there’s a lot of it.

    That’s rich.

    First you have Koreans in Korea telling whitey to “go home”, then when whitey _is_ home, you have some shitty kyopos telling him to “stay out of ‘our’ territory”.

    While George W. Bush is the worst president we’ve had, LBJ made a huge mistake in opening up immigration of Asians. Now we suffer these worthless kyopos with incredible sense of entitlement and complete lack of gratitude. Not only that, we bend over backward not to “stereotype” them when one of them massacres dozens of white folk. When will the madness end?

    Amen.

    Koreans resist joining the larger society when they emigrate. They refuse to even learn the local language after they imigrate.

    I like exploring around with map by myself when I go foreign place.
    But I would not like to visit Korea any more because I lose the way by that Shishkebab-like characters.
    I feel same anxiety in Korean town in NY.
    It is like a ‘Lost World’.
    It is rather “They are closing the world.” than “It is a closed community.”.
    So they are called ‘non-coexistable race’, aren’t they?

    It’s kinda sad because LA’s koreatown association originally attempted to pattern itself after ‘Little Tokyo (just 5 miles away),’ but for whatever reason ‘K-town’ is one of the scummiest sh!tholes that I’ve ever had the pleasure of visting in L.A.

    You really do have a complex against us, don’t you? Like, when hasn’t any other mini-towns had such problems like this?
    .
    Things aside, I think the Califonian Korean Society hasn’t had the shock that the Chinese and the Japanese had. While we had the anti-Chinese hate wave back in the late 19th century and the Japanese detention during WW2, Koreans were never really prosecuted as an ethnic group (except under the word “Yellow”). Of course, we do have the 1992 Los Angeles riots, but that was pretty much a clash between minority groups, not ostrazation by the majority white. As I said, Califonian Koreantown still has a bit to go before the isolated idiots wakes up.

    Matt,
    I can’t find this anywhere else. I gather we’re not skeptical of the Korean press anymore…hmmm…
    .
    Wow…wow…wow,
    You’re condemning an alleged hate crime by displaying more hate? Maybe “hate” is too strong a word, ignorance perhaps…

    It is a very closed community and you wouldn’t know what is what if you don’t read Hangul.

    I suppose when you go to Chinatown or Little Tokyo, you’ll be reading signs in French…

    This is why koreans are the scourge of the world. In my opinion, Japan was doing the right thing by holding them down with their foot and making sure they don’t go anywhere

    Your id really speak for itself.

    I suspect the media doesn’t want to be accused of VT/Cho Seung Hui backlash.

    I fail to see how this “backlash” logic works…

    People who uphold racist immigration policies that keep members of certain countries out of the U.S. are always happy to point out that they LOVE immigrints; especially Asian ones, who are mythologized as the “ideal immirgants”. This story would do nothing to help their side of the story, and as for media sources with a much more liberal, and pro-immigration stance, this story would upset their own fantasy of people of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds living together in peace and harmony (and eating each others weird foods).

    I doubt very much, if indeed the alleged incident happened, that it’d make it beyond your local news, if even that. Not to suggest that American cities are not safe, but when you watch the local news, you’ll probably feel that you are caught up in a Hollywood action movie. Well, crime sells. Getting beat-up(hate crime or not), unless you’re mortally wounded, won’t get you in the news.

    Somehow, this doesn’t seem that incredible to me at all coming from Koreans. Like I’ve mentioned here before, out of all the Asian ethnic groups in America Koreans tend to be the most xenophobic and seem less likely to fit into American society. Compare them with the Chinese, whom you don’t hear in the news staking out their territory and threatening, assaulting non-Chinese in the various Chinatowns throughout the US. Or the other Asian groups for that matter in their own ethnic enclaves. Big difference.

    My salute to HanComplex, the foremost expert on inter-cultural relationship…based on his experience and study of his own ignorance.

    I hope this news spreads into the major news outlets. Koreans are so loathe to self-criticism and are too proud of their race; they need to be humbled to force them to face what’s rotten in their culture. And there’s a lot of it.

    “They need to be humbled…,” I sense a very personal grievance, how did he/she wrong you? Did he/she stand so tall to the mighty HanComplex that it offended you?

    That’s rich.
    First you have Koreans in Korea telling whitey to “go home”, then when whitey _is_ home, you have some shitty kyopos telling him to “stay out of ‘our’ territory”.
    While George W. Bush is the worst president we’ve had, LBJ made a huge mistake in opening up immigration of Asians.

    Well, at least you’re equal opportunity offender, ASIANS….

    Now we suffer these worthless kyopos with incredible sense of entitlement and complete lack of gratitude.

    Wait…just the kyopos…right? Unless you have a ‘nature'(bad stereotype I know) sounding name, you’re not much different than us, eh?

    Not only that, we bend over backward not to “stereotype” them when one of them massacres dozens of white folk. When will the madness end?

    Since when it’s bending over backward to do the ‘right’ thing. Well, I guess for some racist white folks, that would take a little bit of work.

    I feel same anxiety in Korean town in NY.

    Mighty anxious fellow, aren’t you? The Koreatown in NYC runs about one block strip, less than two minutes of brisk walk to get from one side to the other, and given its size and since it’s right smack in the middle of Manhattan, most speak English well(except the guy in the videostore because, well, it’s a Korean videostore). Not quite “The Lost World” I say. May I suggest taking Xanax prior to entering the next time around?

    It’s kinda sad because LA’s koreatown association originally attempted to pattern itself after ‘Little Tokyo (just 5 miles away),’ but for WHATEVER reason ‘K-town’ is one of the SCUMMIEST SH!THOLES that I’ve ever had the pleasure of visting in L.A.

    My capitalizations.
    Ambiguously colorful…or, is it colorfully ambiguous?

    Korean-Americans does not seem reflecting LA riots though its cause was themselves.

    Having personally experienced a couple of riots, I will tell you this. To most involved, they were never about ‘issues’ as they were about ‘excuses’, to behave as less of a human, but of a mere mob. I wasn’t in L.A. during the riots, but I did see a lot shopping carts filled with bottles on TV. I wonder if ‘anger’ could somewhat be alleviated with those stolen bottles.

    Likewise, I wonder if they do not take VT Univ Massacre for serious.

    I think dragging this unfortunate tragedy into unrelated issue, you are the one not taking it “seriously.” Their lifeless bodies are merely pawns in your…best left unsaid.

  20. comment number 20 by: Phil2Musashi

    Hey Kjeff, how’s it going?

    Let me explain a little about why I think this story would do little for either pro/anti-immigration within the U.S. It ties in a lot with African Americans, the civil rights movement, and the Cold War. The government and peoples refusal to incorporate African Americans into society created a very negative opinion of the U.S. internationally. Domestically, African Americans were seen as trouble makers because they made demands for civil rights. With the onset of the cold war, tensions ran high, and certain groups were lumped together in the media in such a way that the words “communist, homosexual, black” could almost mean one and the same.

    In an effort to change overseas opinions of America, there was an active approval of Asian immigrants; especially from countries such as Japan. By supporting Japanese immigrants America was able to give the image of being a racially inclusive, rather than exclusive, country.

    So while Blacks were making headlines in the news for “making trouble”, certain groups in America shifted the focus of the camera over to “Asian” immigrants who were just happy to be making a new and hopefully better life for themselves. I dichotomy arose that continues to this day. The myth of Black=loud and dangerous, and Asian=as quiet and hardworking.

    There is always a reason why something is included or excluded from a major news source: How are we going to use it! If it doesn’t sell papers, or sell an invested opinion, it is not going to make it in the news. The fact that this story did not show up, yet daily there are mentions of African Americans causing violence in LA, shows that there is an invested opinion in maintaining the myth that blacks are the only “trouble making minority” in “White ” America.

    Does that clear up anything?

  21. comment number 21 by: kjeff

    Phil2Musashi,
    Not to shabby, how about you?
    I think it’s sad -for the blacks- that the stereotypes exist, but in some way, they reflect the unfortunate reality. African-Americans crowd the prison system, and disproportionately more likely to commit crimes and be victims of such. I’m not going to debate that there are certain institutionalized racisms that are causing and fostering that, but the facts remain. For somewhat in-depth, and extremely good(and fun) portrait of the circle of hell many African-Americans live in, HBO’s The Wire is really really good.
    Asian-Americans, on other hands, disproportionately socially/economically/educationally upwardly mobile in a rather static American society.(There was an interesting series on this in NY times a couple of years ago, can’t seem to find it). Most of us are actually “quiet and hardworking,” and that’s why Asian-Americans are not making the local news; we just don’t do enough crimes.
    I did however come across a statistic I think not many people know. What minority group is the ‘modelest’ of them all? The African immigrants(not African-Americans). They are even more upwardly mobile than the best of Asian-Americans. I hope that clear things up.

    Matt,

    I do not automatically disbelieve the Korean press. The Korean press does just fine on some issues. It is issues that are taboo, or have taboo aspects about them, where it fails. This means anything about Japan, Dokdo/Takeshima, or inter-racial dating as it relates to foreigners dating Korean women.

    free Genarlow Wilson

    Amen to that.

  24. comment number 24 by: Ken

    Thanks to kjeff’s comments, I could confirm Korean-Americans have not reflected neither of LA riots nor VT Univ Massacre.
    As I quoted before, Korean’s exclusive behavior was the background and having killed a black girl who shoplifted became the trigger.
    Rarely enough, Korean medium warned about it.
    http://www.chosunonline.com/article/20040809000064
    But it seemed neglected so above incident happened and the white woman’s figures were broken.
    “I think dragging this unfortunate tragedy into unrelated issue, you are the one not taking it “seriously.” Their lifeless bodies are merely pawns in your…best left unsaid.”
    You also seem typical Korean, don’t you?
    Once critisized, one counter-attack like conditional reaction by the dog of Pavlov.
    It is your brethren that were romping about gessing the killer as Japanese, Chinese, Chinese-Japanese, Arabic-Japanese or so right after the massacre.
    http://bbs.enjoykorea.jp/tbbs/read.php?board_id=ttalk&page=4&nid=667269
    It is your brethren that blamed Korean ambassador to the USA who suggested to express apology though Pres.Roh required Pres.Bush to apologize army’s having run over Korean girls.
    http://www.chosunonline.com/article/20021127000061
    It is your brethren that suggested to answer as Chinese or Japanese for a while when asked nationality though somebody above strangely said Koreans had not got antipathy unlike the both.

    i live in LA and im in ktown all the time. in fact, last nite i was drinking at dwitgolmok & karnak. for those who have been to ktown, there is an aura of xenophobia. (some places more than others) which doesn’t excuse these kids behavior, but those kids that beat up the white people dont represent all of ktown. if you aren’t korean tho, and your in ktown, you might have to be a little more careful and aware of your surroundings. it may not be “right” or “fair” but that’s just the way it is. if you think its too dangerous, don’t go there.

  33. comment number 33 by: leey

    It is unfortunate that this incident occurred. However, before you conclude anything from this one article, I advise you to review the statistics of hate crimes.

    2005
    http://www.fbi.gov/ucr/hc2005/offenders.htm
    Whereas 75.1% of Americans are white, 60.5% of hate crime offenders are white.
    In contrast, 3.6% of Americans are Asian, .9% of hate crime offenders were Asian.
    Even if Koreans constituted 100% of all Asians in America, they would not have such a large proportion of offenders.
    I would appreciate it if Matt cited his facts, this website is horribly designed and your methodology of analysis is flawed, and dishonest at worst.
    This website at most can only be considered as a collection of opinions, not facts.

  34. comment number 34 by: happypanasia

    Matt,
    It’s so obvious what you are doing and it’s really sad. Spreading hate is not necessarily the most productive thing to do. Granted that there are some idiot Koreans out there, there are idiots from every ethnicity and race. The opposite is true where you have really wonderful and great folks. I’m really proud to know and love my Japanese friends. We get along really well despite the stereotype of Japanese and Koreans not getting along. It’s amazing what happens when you break the ice and see how everyone is essentially good intentioned. I can’t really imagine why you would even dedicate a site to negatively viewing Koreans – it’s so clearly slanted where you collect unsavory press on Koreans and concentrate them on your site. Would you ever even think of being friends with a person of Korean heritage like me? If so, email me and hopefully we can have some intelligent discussions instead of the perpetuating of divisions amongst people. That’s the last thing we need in a world that’s increasingly paranoid and divided despite the globalization. I am serious when I say that sitting down with people who you think you think are going to really suck, can wonderfully surprise you with a few laughs and good conversation. Hope the best for you and everyone else out there:)

    What you are saying is wonderful. I respect you if you are claiming the same at anti-Japanese hate sites. ( Though I don`t think this site is spreading hate against Koreans.)

  36. comment number 36 by: iop98422

    Looks like almost 90% of the people here are ignorant or just angry that Korean ethnicity is overpowering other races today.

    First, LA has its own history. When Koreantown was getting robbed, burned, murdured, and sabotized, LAPD or any law enforcement refused to help their community. This obviously was a hint that whites/blacks are not welcoming Koreans in their land for them.

    Secondly, the story behind story thing here…A random korean guy on BMW would beat some random white people for fun? No, korean-americans are very protective of themselves because of discrimination they receive everyday. Either those white people were doing something to his BMW or caused some kind of harm to him.(remember backlash against koreans after VirginiaTech)

    Like the statistics : Whereas 75.1% of Americans are white, 60.5% of hate crime offenders are white.
    In contrast, 3.6% of Americans are Asian, .9% of hate crime offenders were Asian.

    To sum it up, Koreans are just retaliating against whites for the hate crime they caused against koreans. Many cases here apply such as damaging massive amount of korean cars, beating up a korean kid, robbing a korean store, filing false law suit, and much more.

    Ah, well backlash news nevers hits the American NEWS since it would be a shame for the white/black community. There were many….many incidents involving crimes against asian-americans after virginia tech. Even until this day, racial tension on the east coast hasn’t changed.

    Where do Koreans get this idea that they are superior to other races? Oh yes, Koreans come from the loins of DANGUN, how could it be any other way.

    Let’s stop being ignorant

    So there is a massive media and political conspiracy, (heck even bloggers wont talk about it) holding back information on anti-Korean discrimination. If it wasn’t for the white/black community holding Koreans back in the USA, the Koreans would take their natural place at the top of the food chain.
    .
    If you read any Korean newspaper, you will see many many chauvinistic stories. This is part of the reason why Koreans believe themselves superior to other races.
    .
    Why don’t other Koreans tell guys like this that he is full of shit? Well, because other Koreans belive the same thing as him.

  40. comment number 40 by: Free Mind

    Garlic Breath,

    Well, I’m a Korean, and I’m here to tell you that he’s full of shit 🙂

    Not everyone’s as close minded or idiotic as him or the people who commited the hate crime, but you see that’s the problem. Some idiot like him comes along doing stupid things to make everyone else look bad.

    But it’s true, lots of Koreans ARE stupid like him. People here are full of hate and they say the country sucks, but are unable to do anything about it due to their lack of brain capacity.

    Personally, even though I’m a Korean myself, I don’t really like Korea. Ever since I really got to know the county and the people here, I just can’t love it. So many people are messed up, and you especially can’t expect any attiquete on the internet from them.

    And it’s true that many Koreans are very closed minded. Some people are arrogant because they’ve been taught that way the the Korean society. This is how it goes; there are lots of people who don’t like foreigners at all, people who love white people but think they’re superior then black people, and the last group of people who are open minded to all races(but they tend to hate Korea and the fact that they’re Korean; there are exceptions).

    But really, even in such a messed up country like Korea, there ARE some good people like there is everywhere else in the world; they’re just really hard to find.

    So please, don’t make judgements on your first sight of seeing a Korean. At least talk to them for few minutes, THEN hate them if you must.
