tragic. now the bigots are after korean-americans, according to newsweek. this will spread to all east asians. remember someone beating some chinese to death in detroit thinking they were japanese? this is also like people targeting indians thinking they were iranians during the hostage crisis in the 1980s.
in my personal experience, korean-americans have been diligent and hard-working people. many are also very religious.

Some people have come out with outrageous statements against Koreans. Newsweek has refused to retract the statement and the sepia mutiny hatemongers are upset.
Cho Seung-Hui, the 23-year-old identified as the killer of 32 on the Virginia Tech campus, may have lived in the state since his elementary school days, but to the bigots in the blogosphere it was his origins in Korea that mattered most. "Koreans are the most hotheaded and macho of East Asians," wrote one unnamed commentator on the Sepia Mutiny blog. "They are also sick and tired of losing their Korean girlfriends to white men with an Asian fetish."
