Don't shop turns into 'do for self' Boycott results in a new...

Jan 18, 2013 Full story: Final Call 12

If you were anywhere near South Dallas about a year ago you would be familiar with the term "Don't Stop, Don't Shop." It related to spending hard-earned Black dollars with the Korean owner Thomas Pak at his Diamond Shamrock gas station located on Martin Luther King Blvd.

Very strange and very rare. I have never heard of a Korean in America that would behave the way the article described: calling black people (NOI in this case)“broke a-- n----r”(whatever that is), monkey, slave, and even beat some black man unconscious?(Kamikaze Korean?)

"Mr. Pak first denied that he used the slurs and insults but later tearfully apologized before news cameras amid a full scale protest that severely hurt his flow of business."

Just because you haven't heard it, doesn't mean they aren't thinking it.

Good, they've got their "Black" owned gas station.

Bad, it shouldn't take all of this to make that happen.

Oh, Islam isn't for us.

Not saying that it can't happen... it might just be a fact that the Korean owner is such a jerk (and has to be a very stupid one in this case). But it is far from typical. I am not a Korean, but I know enough of them to know what is typical and what is not. I am also leaving a little room for the possibility that it is a setup and threat by NOI (the way that he initially denied and later admitted in tears "in front of cameras"), if I can express my little doubt honestly.

I know I'm being biased, but naturally I have some doubt to any "conflicts" that Louis Farrakhan fights for and the fairness of an article from someone by the name JIHAD HASSAN MUHAMMAD.

Indeed Islam isn't for us.

The article provided by Topix is from a web site supporting Nation of Islam and very racially motivated (tons of such articles found)

I did a little bit of search just now and found this article from a conservative black person who points out how the picture was "being painted by the liberal NAACP and the Nation of Islam"...

True that the Korean business appeared to be too uncompromised or too strict to (wouldn't waive their $10 minimum purchase for gas rule requested by a black customer), but to make that a case to accuse the owner as racist is not reasonable. This isn't any different from some CAIR's protest against some free businesses and attempts to bring down the businesses.

This should paint a different picture on "who's the real racist"

...
correcting a little mistake, the article is not from a black person, but about opinions expressed by a black lady regarding this incident.

That article has a lot of things suspect with it. Mr Pak is American, of Korean heritage. They suggest he's not even American by referring to him as Korean.

If it were true that he beat someone unconscious, why were criminal charges not filed? Why does the rhetoric dwell on 'disrespect' when a criminal action of battery would be much more important to focus on?

' The first sign I saw stated,“Killed 4 Stealing.” One of the protesters had the trademark white shirt and bowtie of a Nation of Islam member. My immediate reaction was: In this neighborhood, you can be killed for walking, much less stealing. It’s hard to argue with any business owner who uses lethal force to protect his property.

Is that the real issue behind the protest outside the Kwik Stop, as described on today’s front page of The Dallas Morning News? Does anyone in South Dallas really expect a business owner to just stand aside when someone comes in, grabs the cash register, and heads out the door?

A clerk working for Kwik Stop owner Thomas Pak, a Korean American, opened fire during the 2010 confrontation witnessed by a Dallas County sheriff’s detention officer. The cash register thief didn’t just try to run off, he also tried to assault the clerk, a relative of Pak. In December, another man brandished a knife during a confrontation with Pak. This neighborhood is one of the toughest in the city. Over the past month alone, within a five-block radius of Pak’s store, police have responded to at least 73 crimes, including 10 assaults and more than 12 robberies or thefts. Since October, there have been three homicides within a 10-block radius. There are at least two open-air drug markets nearby.'

The NOI's article never mentioned the behavior of those in conflict with the Korean. More and more it sounds like the Korean was actually the victim of a racist group with an organized movement to drive them out of business. Too many times they set up things to bring down others, a mentality not too different from those in Pakistan who conveniently accuse people they hate of "blasphemy" to get rid of them.

Everything about the NOI has been about Negros being a superior race. It's a political/cult/racist organization, nothing more.

NOI isn't religion. It's a prison gang. Personally, I boycott any establishment owned by muslims. We have to send the message that they are not welcome in America and other free and decent societies.
