Is it just an assumption or do black people IN GENERAL hate koreans??
I ask this because I remember that there was a LA riot when Rodney King was beaten by the White police, and the Black people attacked all the korean grocery markets and destroyed everything. My parents always told me that it was indeed initiated by Koreans since Koreans made majority of their money off of African-Americans, yet still showed no respect and acted as if they were the upper class compared to the Blacks.
I also remember when Ice Cube made a rap song dissing Koreans, and some other notable hating words by others about Koreans. Is this true??
I'm not trying to start s**t, I'm just really really curious since this doesn't seem to be the case in Canada.(I'm korean btw)
I don't speak for all the members of the African Diaspora and neither does Ice Cube (he spewed a lot of hate music back in the mid-90s when he apparently became part of the Nation of Islam...however; I think he's matured since then). Please don't assume that all blacks harbor hate for any group of people. In regards to Korean immigrants, I think many blacks have come to admire the thriving business presence Koreans hold in black communities throughout America.
Also, it's pretty safe to say that people (black, white, brown, etc) like or dislike individuals and not entire ethnic groups. Therefore, if you're having problems with blacks personally, consider your own disposition, personality, or behaviors. A warm smile and compliment will win over just about anyone. :-)
