Racially motivated violence against Koreans feared in South Dallas.


NOI and NAACP members demand Koreans leave town.

All Asian owned stores must leave Black communities says local Nation of Islam[NOI] leader. Korean Business association plans to publicly grovel to NAACP leaders in Dallas this weekend.

Black militants led by the NAACP and the Nation of Islam are staging daily protests in front of a Korean owned gas station in a Black neighborhood in South Dallas.

They say they are protesting the 2010 self-defense shooting of a violent thug. That shooting occurred when a career thug, fresh out of prison, tried to rob the gas station. The violent thug was shot and killed in self-defense.

Nation of Islam leader Jeffery Muhammad couldn’t find any other cause to agitate over. So he revived the 2010 shooting as a reason for his followers to harass local Korean business owners.

Last week Muhammad entered the store and started a fight with the owner. He told Pak, the owner, that he was exploiting the community and began berating him with racial slurs. Pak, who says black customers call him racial slurs all the time, eventual called Muhammed a racial slur back.

Now black militants have physically blocked and intimidated costumers from going to the gas station, and are demanding the Korean owner close the shop and leave town.

In fact Muhammed wants all Jewish, Italian, Indian, and Korean business owners to leave Black communities.

A national Korean business owners association is having a conference in Dallas this weekend. Instead of defending Pak, they plan to publicly grovel to the NAACP.

The Nation of Islam preaches that Allah will bring about the extermination of all White people in an apocalyptic racial holy war.

Muhammad, 44, who was appointed to his post in 1994 by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, says Pak must go. So should other Asian-American merchants in black neighborhoods, he says.

“They are just the latest in a long line of people who have come to this country—like Jews, Italians, Indians and now Asians—who have sucked the blood of and exploited the black community,” Muhammad said.

The recent deaths of Korean-American shopkeepers have put that community on edge. In late 2009, Kee-Sun Chung was shot and killed when two masked men tried to rob his east Oak Cliff doughnut shop. In July, another east Oak Cliff store owner, Jin Kim Ha, was shot in a robbery at closing time and died at a hospital.

Eugene Yu, national president of the Federation of Korean Associations, flew to Dallas from Georgia to help resolve Pak’s predicament. {snip}

Yu, also a member of the NAACP, will be among the leaders attending a Korean-American leadership conference in Dallas this weekend. There, he expects his federation’s new agreement with the NAACP will be announced. National NAACP leaders say one of their officials, perhaps their president, will speak at the event.

“I’m not saying that store owner did right … I hope he’s learned lessons from this incident,” Yu said. “I can see these people are angry. But we will do anything to plead with them to please give Tommy Pak a second chance.”

Protest leaders say that won’t happen. Muhammad says there can be only one resolution: “That man needs to leave our community, because he is no longer welcome.”
