    LOL at that Koreatown For All article.

    Koreatown pushed a homeless shelter onto a park in the most Latino and family oriented area of Koreatown.

    But sure, point the finger at others while doing nothing.

    I think that the Koreatown For All group emerged out of the losing campaign *for* that Koreatown shelter. They’ve criticized their (my) neighbors for opposing that shelter. Koreatown, where I live, is a very diverse place – you can’t fault “Koreatown For All” for there being NIMBYs in Koreatown – they’re fighting against those NIMBYs here.

    Got it! Thanks for the reply, Joe.

    Nonetheless, the piece should’ve included the introspection on the K-Town shelter fight and how it was indeed anti-black/brown sentiment that sparked those protests and outrage.
