We must NEVER do it again! A CEE riguez September 20, 2016 Not to try and distract from the main issue of japanese americans in camps and their struggle but at the time they also tried to claim hispanics (specifically mexicans) were vulnerable to infiltration by the japanese and would be used as spies because mexicans ancestors were native americans and native americans were decendants of people who migrated from asia through the bering pass.. talk about reaching, this was a dark time for minorities in the US Rickyfromphilly September 20, 2016 I was not taught about Japanese Internment Camps in school. Slavery was briefly glanced over, as was the Native American experience. I only knew the Chinese were here to build the railroads, but I didn't learn anything about the troubles they faced. I do, however, remember our history books going into great detail about The Holocaust, being that is was not an atrocity commented by Americans. I also notice that Russia's war crimes were not mentioned, and that is probably due to the fact that the U.S allied itself with the Russians during the war.

So now he's japanese? Can't he know for sure for god's sake? It's not that hard. Ask your parents what ancestry they have, dude. He can be mexican of japanese ethnicity, there are some japanese in Mexico, for sure, but can he be less confusing? JOKER September 20, 2016 There were too many Jap spies amongst our Japanese population in the United States.
