Comparative apologies

It's been interesing to see the difference between Koreans' response to the massacre at Virginia Tech and Muslim and Arab response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Korean-Americans, Korean citizens in America, and the Korean government didn't whine about discrimination, racism and bigotry. They didn't demand special protections. They didn't make excuses.

They apologized. Profusely and profoundly.

And of course, they didn't need to. The psycho kid at Virginia Tech didn't murder in the name of Korea. He wasn't trained to kill by Korean causes. The South Korean government doesn't crank out extremist propaganda that incites young men to murder. No Korean-American activist groups tacitly supported him.
