Regarding "Crossing the Culture Line" (by Lydia Chavez, Aug. 28): Activists Karen Bass and Bong Hwan Kim are among the best and the brightest in a new alliance of community coalition builders. I am pleased that they are finally receiving the recognition they so richly deserve.

It's very telling that when Chavez mentions four Korean-American merchants who were murdered in 1986, she doesn't mention their names. Unlike the attacker of Soon Ja Du (Latasha Harlins), Korean murder victims aren't lucky enough to have hate-peddling PR agents.
