It 's a good thing we bombed when we did though because Russia was getting involved and other countries would 've joined and made the war worse. Where Japan didn 't get a warning about the bomb, they weren 't prepared and neither were the other countries so there was a better chance of nothing happening in return and nothing did. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were chosen, not the entire country. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were hit on target pretty well. Not all the Japanese were a target as well, just the military.
This was not the case because the Government didn’t allow the Issei to become citizens because of bias stereotypes the Americans had of the Issei. The Nisei had their rights violated because by birth they were Americans so that automatically makes them loyal to America. When the government came and collected them, they were given questionnaires that was supposed to prove their loyalty on how they answered, which meant the government was collecting all types of private information without valid reason which is in violation of The Fourth Amendment. When Robert Gordon Sproul gave his speech, he took the stance of defending the Japanese Americans. “The American citizen of Japanese ancestry
Asians immigrating to North America have done so since the colonists, but their immigration has not prospered until the late 1870s. Specific groups, like the Chinese and Japanese, were targeted for discrimination and other atrocious acts. White Americans had a stereotypical way of thinking about immigrants from Asia, and how they were going to impose menace and the outsourcing of jobs. They also became physical and labor threats for the nativists, and subsequently these nativists did everything in their power to enforce regulations that could potentially weaken Asian groups. Therefore laws such as the Chinese Exclusion Act were created solely based on race and color.
Qing China violated this stipulation when the sent troops into Korea without notifying Japan. The violation of the Tientsin Convention ultimately led to the First Sino-Japanese War. Once the Japanese and Chinese forces started entering the country, the Donghak rebels gathered in battle against the Joseon, Japanese, and Chinese troops, to drive the foreigners (being the Chinese and Japanese troops) out of the country. In the beginning of the battle, the rebels actually had the advantage. They were successfully defeating the Joseon army until the Japanese appeared.
It all started off with the bombing of Pearl Harbor, this spelled trouble for the Japanese immigrants already settled in America. They worked hard to overcome discrimination and managed to establish small businesses and farms (Roosevelt, 1942, p. 112). Another reason for such the drastic measure taken, was the growing distrust in Japanese immigrants and their children. To justify taking the Japanese Americans, General John L. DeWitt was convinced that they were more loyal to their Japanese heritage than their American citizenship (Roosevelt, 1942, p. 112). Internment Camps Due to the lack of trust in the Japanese citizens and immigrants, President Kennedy ordered them all to be sent to detention camps.
president roosevelt established that the japanese amaericans go into internment camps. he was not justified because the ones in america at the time didnt have anything to do with the bombing, on the other hand there were some japanese who acted loyal to their culture and were spies. this would be a just reason for him to have done that. the event of pearl harbor president roosevelt thought it would be a good idea to put the japanese americans in internment camps. he decided to do this because there were spies that helped japan instead of being loyal to the country they were in.
As the Japanese forces were considered the aggressors of the conflict by the Allies and Japanese veterans alike, the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was justified. Their aggression previous to the bombing was demonstrated through the attack on Pearl Harbour, which led to America’s involvement in World War II. The attack was not one born out of vengeance and was not strategically logical, whereas there was a reason behind the bombing of Hiroshima, that reason being that the Japanese military would not agree to the clauses presented in the Potsdam Declaration. This declaration was given to the military officials as an invitation to surrender before the first bombing, providing ample time for them to make a decision to hopefully end the
Stone asserted that racial discrimination was legitimate because "in time of war residents having ethnic affiliations with an invading enemy may be a greater source of danger than those of a different ancestry." Implications: More people skeptical/lose trust in US government, racial discrimination of Japanese, and in 1990, US government paid compensations to confined Japanese Changes: Similar case with Korematsu v. United States that is still upheld the constitutionally of Japanese internment camps during World War
The 14th amendment is protection under the law. The due process clauses forbids a state (and its local governments) to act in any unfair or arbitrary way; the equal protection clause forbids a state ( and its local governments) to discriminate against, draw unreasonable distinctions between, persons. Executive order if 9066 is a direct violation against the 14th amendment of the constitution. The Japanese were natural born United States citizenship and the U.S. thought bad of them due to the Japan attacking us in the Pearl Harbor. So they put them in the internment camps There were lots of parallels between the Japanese, the native Americans “Trail of Tears,” also the Nazi concentration of Jews.
Again, this is a clear violation of the first amendment of the United States constitution, as they were mistreated and suppressed, because and opinion was expressed. One may argue that the Supreme Court, in 1944, stated that the need of American safety outweighed the individual rights of the Japanese( Steven, High, Anne Arundel County Public schools, umbc.edu). This absurd ruling was not helping American citizens, but rather hurting our country’s people, as Japanese Americans were being held captive. To further prove this point, President Jimmy Carter appointed a committee in 1980 to study Japanese
