In light of our discussions yesterday regarding the impact that the most recent school killer's nationality is having on both perceptions of him and perceptions of Koreans in America...

One of my friends is Korean, and her last name is Cho. She lives in Colorado, went to the same high school as me. Apparently, while she was working, someone came up to her and, seeing that she was Asian and her last name (on her nametag) was Cho asked her if she was related to the killer.

I think that, depressingly, for some, this tragedy will have an impact on how they view all Asians.
