Division Among Koreans in America

My name is Daniel. I was an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea, and am a writer who has
published four books including South Korea: Our Story by Daniel Nardini, The Day China Cried
by Daniel Nardini, My Taiwan, Seoul and Guadalajara (Mexico) Memoirs by Daniel Nardini,
and My Italian American Family, Rural Taiwan and Lawndale News Years by Daniel Nardini.
                           As I learned from what contact I have of Korean immigrants and
Korean Americans here in the United States, they are as divided by the politics on the Korean
peninsula as is true for Koreans on the Korean peninsula. There are a growing number who
believe that there can be a confederation between the two Koreas and eventually peace. They
support current South Korea President Moon Jae-in and his policies. There are those who
are quite conservative and want to have nothing to do with North Korea and with current
President Moon. There is a growing number who are not sure what to make of all this, and
have no opinion one way or the other. They are simply waiting to see what happens next. 
One thing is for sure—those Koreans convinced one way or the other will not voice their
opinions to the other side, and if the two opposite sides meet here it usually turns out to
be bitter arguing and sometimes violence. A Korean may leave Korea, but a Korean cannot
leave Korea behind. I just find it sad that the politics of division between the Koreas is
among Koreans in the United States.
