Gone In 41 Seconds — Police Quick to Kill Korean Artist

Feb 24, 2008

LA HABRA, Calif. — On the afternoon of December 31, 2007, two police officers encountered Michael Cho in the parking lot of a liquor store in La Habra, a small, generally quiet city in Orange County, California. It didn’t take long for the meeting to go bad. After less than a minute the officers unleashed a barrage of bullets on the 25-year-old artist, ending his life - and setting off an ongoing cascade of protests across Southern California’s Korean American community.

Computerized police logs obtained by New America Media suggest the officers quickly turned to deadly force when they confronted Cho, whom they suspected of vandalism. According to the Computer Automated Transcript documenting the incident, at 2:04 p.m. the cops contacted their dispatcher to say they’d located Cho. “Out with the subject near the liquor store,” the transcript reads. Just 41 seconds later they radioed dispatch again, this time saying they’d shot the suspect and now needed paramedics to attend to him. “Shot fired, Suspect down, Medics requested,” reads the transcript. In the aftermath of the killing, Cho’s family has publicly condemned the department, saying the officers rushed to shoot Cho, rather than using less lethal tools like pepper spray or Taser stun guns to subdue him.

“The police killed my son like a dog,” Cho’s mother, Honglan Cho, recently told the La Habra City Council. According to Shelly Lynn Kaufman, an attorney for the Cho family, the fusillade of bullets left ten holes in his body.

I don't understand why darkening your skin for cosplay is as bad as/is the same as blackface. The cosplayer isn't trying to be racist. They're just trying to make their cosplay be as accurate as possible. I understand that blackface is wrong, and if darkening your skin for cosplay is as bad as blackface, then I'm against darkening your skin for cosplay, but I still don't understand why it's wrong. Can you please explain?

The reason it’s wrong is the same reason why white people using the N word or any other racial slur is wrong, why affirmative action needs to exist and why in general there are things that minorities are allowed to do that white people can’t: history.

Remember, blackface was popular only 50 years ago and even today in some instances people will still use it for comedy.

This South Park episode aired less than a year ago (and its even more cringe worthy when you watch the episode itself). Just google the term blackface and you’ll actually get more recent pictures of people doing it as a joke (not as innocent cosplay) than you will of old pictures from when it was a legitimate form of comedy.

Even if the cosplayer doesn’t mean to be racist, it’s still racist because it’s history is racist and that’s why they can’t do it. I think people need to realize that racism isn’t just about being some giant bigot who openly yells slurs at minorities and is involved in the KKK. Racism can be as simple as doing something seemingly harmless when in fact you are insulting an entire group of people while simultaneously shoving your privilege in their face.

White people have spent literally centuries oppressing minorities and they still oppress us to this day to the point where some things are forever tainted and no matter how innocent you are trying to be, thanks to the way the world is and how white people have used this and are still using it to this day to oppress and dehumanize black people and turn us into a joke, it’s not okay to do at all.

And I know that people want to have really accurate cosplays, but it’s better to not be accurate than to be racist and insult the very same people that you oppress.

my mom just came to me and ranted about how everyone is making this facebook status that says, “raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree”. she was so baffled by this because she said, “you were pretty easy to raise as teenagers. all you did was sleep and eat.” 

so to prove some point she’s going to nail a small cup of jello to a tree. 

she’s so pleased with her self

parents are weird 

yeah but this is about as accurate as it gets.

you say “nail jello to a tree” and most people think jello all by itself.

but if you put any actual thought into what you’re doing and then give it just a little support

well gosh. look what happens.

please tell your mom good job.

I finally got around to reading Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, and of course I loved it. There’s plenty more I’d like to draw but goodness, there are too many great characters in this book.

im so happy
