And every time they come, Niemoller says he “did not speak out” because “I was not a communist” or because “I was not a Socialist” and so on (Qtd in Niemoller). By the time everyone else was gone, there was no one left to speak out when “they came for me” (Qtd in

December 7, 1941 was the day the Japanese warplanes attacked Pearl Harbor (Hawaii) which stationed many of American ships and airfields. Immediately after the bombings, United States President Franklin Roosevelt declared war on Japan, leading to a direct involvement into World War ll.

On December 7, 1941 Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. The day after the bombing the United States and Britain declared war on Japan.

The Best use of Rhetoric The Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation and the Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage are both great examples of ethos, pathos, and logos. They are both political messages created to not only rely on facts but to strike emotion in the hearts of the audience, whoever they may be. In the Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation speech given by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on December 8, 1941, in response to one of the most tragic days in U.S. history, to help rally the people of the United States of America to the realization of war between the Japanese and American forces. The Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage was given by Carrie Chapman Catt to spark a revolt and spur up emotion of great pride in women of all nature to take a stand fight for what is right.

Dower, author of War Without Mercy, includes several political cartoons and examples of the immense stereotyping which contributes to the idea of racism that is still
Although a tragic experience for most the bombing of Pearl Harbor was very important. The Bombing eliminated America’s isolationist ways.

What do you know about Pearl Harbor…? Pearl Harbor was a devastation to Americans. lives were lost, ships and planes were damaged and destroyed. The Japan attacked Pearl to insure safety for japan. December 7, 1941 was the horrific day when the Japanese attacked Hawaii.
Life of a Japanese American was harsh and scary because you never knew what the mad people would do. Japanese Americans shouldn’t have been punished because most of them were born and raised on the West Coast. They had to sell their homes, stores, and most of their assets because they could not be certain their homes and livelihoods would still be there on their return. It made no difference that many had never been to Japan because Japananese American veterans of WW1 were forced to leave. The fear was that if Japanese invaded the west coast of America, they would be loyal to Japan instead of the U.S.
This was stated by the San Francisco mayor James Phelan in 1900, showing that this racism began long before the war began. Also, in document 11 with “The Japanese race is an enemy race…”. Quotes like these exemplified the racism that occurred toward Asians in the WWII era. In Ronald Takaki’s essay he uses a quote from the Los Angeles Times that compares the Japanese people to a viper and states that they cannot be American. All of these sources exemplify the fact that Americans did not have the capacity to not be racist towards the Japanese.
Americans started thinking the Japanese knew about the attack before it happened (Sandler 24). Everyone blew everything out of proportion. “During the early 1920’s the anti-Japanese crusade grew nastier” (Marrin 63). Americans started saying “Once a Jap, Always a Jap” (Martin 23). The people became prejudice.
The attack on Pearl Harbor was in fact a terrorist attack. The Imperial Japanese Navy against the US Naval base. This later led to the US to World War II. (Hanson, V.wnd) After 2 years of their conflict the US begins world war II. The war was belligerent.
Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor is by far one of America’s most remembered events in history. On December 7, 1941, the Japanese dropped bombs on the American base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This attack is what persuaded President Franklin Roosevelt to join World War 2 and fight on two fronts. Japan attacked Pearl Harbor for many reasons. They attacked because they believed they would create a New World Order, they felt threatened by America and because of the oil embargo.
Thesis statement: Though many speculate that the act of dropping the atomic bomb on Japan (Hiroshima and Nagasaki) while not doing so on Europe (Germany and Italy) was racially motivated, racism played little to no role in these bombings. The United States of America and her allies were willing to end World War II at any cost, had the atomic bombs been available they would have been deployed in Europe. In the 1940’s there is no doubt that the United States of America was engulfed by mass anti-Japanese hysteria which inevitably bled over into America’s foreign policy. During this period Japanese people living in both Japan and the United States of America were seen as less that human.
It all started when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, causing the U.S. citizens to be extremely furious and unite the support of media to create propagandas. The Japanese are portrayed with slanted small eyes and buck teeth- undermining the intelligence of their race; moreover, they were even dehumanized and depicted as animals. The U.S media was very biased when comparing the Chinese to the Japanese. While the Chinese man had an amiable appearance and a slender body, the Japanese had an unpleasant frown on his face and was described as short and stout (Miles). The article “WWII Propaganda: The Influence of Racism” also states that “The Chinese man’s occupation implies that he helps people, while the title of Japanese warrior alludes to danger and disloyalty,” (ibid).
