The New Korean Americans

Hosted by

In Los Angeles, the family of Soon Ja Du, the Korean grocery who was convicted of shooting and killing a young African American girl in her grocery store, has agreed to pay the family of Latasha Harlins $300,000 in order to settle a civil lawsuit. The attorney for the family said that the insurance company involved agreed to pay the settlement because they said all along that the shooting was accidental. Yesterday, Korean American merchants were pelted with ink bottles, thumbtacks and other offices supplies tossed out of windows at city hall as they protested for a seventeenth day over the way government officials have treated them since the riots. Several people were slightly injured, according to Los Angeles police, including a three-year-old child who was hit in the head by a tack. Several adults were cut when small glass bottles of red black and white ink slammed against the pavement and shattered.
