post #1831 of 1928

As we are coming up to the 25th anniversary of the LA Riots, I've been seeing more discussion on how that impacted K town and the Korean American community. It could just be me seeing what I want to see, but I just don't remember any kind of focus on KAs.

It's ridiculous that during this "news report", they are out there talking about how they wonder if the guns were legal registered, intentional language barriers etc. My uncle had a business that was completely destroyed during the riots. I remember he told us the cops had driven up to the swap meet, saw the looting and boned out immediately.

 

The one thing following the riots I remember is so much talk and openness about racism and police brutality and all that. At the time, even having grown up among both the "passive" or "good intentions" type of racism and the blatant hate filled kind, I was still naïve in many ways, I think the way no one seemed to care about what happened to our community, how none of my teachers thought this was anything but a black vs. white thing, really opened my eyes.

The narrative at that time was black urban poor vs white cops and it was portrayed very well that way.

When the riots began and targeted Korean or Asian owned businesses in the neighborhoods, and then the police response of course it went back to white cop vs black urban poor forgetting the backdrop of koreatown and targets of the rioters.

Who were the Koreans against? The rioters and police? That must've sucked.

Practically the whole neighborhood they had to fight off.
Must have been rough for them.

This. We felt like the nation forgot that our community was destroyed. To me the riots were really about socio-economics. Koreans were well spread out throughout SoCal and in most major cities even then, but that was the heart of our immigrant community. There was definitely a mix of business owners and professionals in the community, some had already been here since the 70s, many had arrived in the 80s and just getting established. Most Koreans at the time didn't arrive "poor" and many were really prospering.

 

I remember some people saying that because of the overall poverty in the area compared to the wealth the Korean owners had, the looting and rioting was justified. Nearly 3 decades later, I'm glad to see the overall tone has changed and most would agree that is nonsense.

 

I'm curious if any other Asian communities faced similar backlash or what the experience was like watching this. I wonder also, how we would have reacted, if this occurred in another community, such as a longer established area like Chinatown or Little Tokyo.

 

The riots were one of the catalyst that had the next wave of Koreans coming here to focus on education, professional careers and corporate jobs vs. small businesses like liquor stores, beauty supply and dry cleaners.

^its hard to say if the same would happen in other Asian ethnic enclaves due to the circumstances of the riots in k-town. There was already bitterness over Koreans setting up shops in the neighborhood but once that girl was shot by the store owner it was a wrap

It's nowhere near the same level, but I do know there are many Trump supporting Americans that are bitter and hateful towards Asian immigrants, and they're getting much more vocal about it these days. We are lucky to live in the major metro areas of California, but there's still those types of people out here. I've heard of a bunch of incidents against Indian and Chinese immigrants here in the Bay Area, including people I know personally. It's stupid because these two groups basically make up 75% of the entire area's economy, so if they really end up going back to their own countries, it's a wrap for the tech industry and California in general laugh.gif

I was surprised to hear that most Cubans are republicans. You learn to understand just because you care about an issue doesn't mean others will. The election kinda opened up a lot of eyes.

I remember thinking the same thing but someone explained to me it's ideological. They escaped harsh "socialism", so of course they'd gravitate to the other side.

My parents are Republicans, but they hate and didn't vote for Trump, laugh.gif

Which cut of the lechon do you use? Kawali?

 

If so, that's pork belly. I thought it's common to use pork belly or pork butt/shoulder for Sinigang?

post #1848 of 1928
Yep kawali

I have never used pork belly in sinegang.....i dunno why....it sounds good.

Ive used...shrimp....beef ribs......many types of fish....pork ribs

I always thought pork belly for sinigang was standard. I don't think I've ever veered off of that.

But after writing that, I feel like having bulaklak tonight now laugh.gif
post #1853 of 1928
I primarily use pork belly, occasionally pork shoulder. I'm not really a fan of fish in stews so I don't ever cook sinigang that way. I like shrimp but it's too much work to get to the meat after it cooks, I feel like my food cools off too much by the time I'm done ohwell.gif

I always cringe everytime someone Asks/says-

"Where is it made?"
"Is it made in China?"
"Buy this cause it's made in the USA"

Or

I belong in a Toyota forum and a lot of this is repeated.


"Buy this (said part) from this company because it's made in the USA. Not that J@p crap".

-"but you drive a Japanese truck"

"Toyota Tundras are made in Texas"

And then they proceed to bash American trucks like chevy and ford.

If someone makes a better product than someone/where else, I am buying the better product, I don't care where it is from. I do care about the ethics of how it is made, but not the where.
