Why focus on Koreans only? Weren't other countries subject to this atrosity as well?

I get the population is Korean, but the idea of a Korean only merorial still sounds ethnocentric.

Are there Chinese only, Vietnamese only, Filipino only.

"Bergen County’s memorial is the second of its kind in New Jersey. Palisades Park, where more than half of the population is of Korean ancestry, dedicated its statue in 2010."

Thanks for your opinion, this is intersting.

BTW, are there Koreans in Glendale -I though it was all Armos and Arabs -not that that is all bad.

Lol ...Armo. That's an inside joke for that loud mouthed proxy troll. He is funny -but a nutball. More of life's interesting treasures.
