Income inequality acts as a means to “wake people up” and make clear to them their need for higher education and more hard work to obtain more money, and thus, more success. As income inequality increased in China and America, there arose a correlation to the increase among men and women of all races and ethnic backgrounds. Despite the fact that income inequality could cause people to make poor decisions and make them insecure in society, income inequality improves the economic systems in America and other parts of the world by serving as a motivation for people to achieve much greater things in the desires of changing their station in life for a happier
Recognizing the danger that North Korea and its neighboring country China represented to South Korea the United States kept a tradition that had been going since 1944 and kept over 100,000 of its soldiers on the Korean peninsula. Many believe this led to Korea getting a larger taste of the western culture which is now part of current Korean culture. This also helped give a needed boost to Korean economy as establishments were built up around military bases to provide additional food and entertainment to the many soldiers stationed there. While that number has dwindled over time, the benefits have only increased for both nations. South Korea has benefitted from the sharing of military technology, especially in its air defense program, which now boasts the United States PATRIOT missile technology in response to the growing number of Theatre Ballistic Missiles (TBM) North Korea has developed.
This also shows how Americans took matters into their own hands and forced Roosevelt to enact Executive Order 9066. Executive Order 9066 placed all citizens of Japanese descent in internment camps. Even Japanese citizens from Peru were forcefully sent to American internment camps. “...the US government asked a dozen Latin American countries, among them Peru, to arrest its Japanese residents.”(Gonzales) This represents how Americans were insecure about the US national security. The US government did so because they were afraid those Japanese people could be potential spies, and that those spies would leak information that would harm the US.
With the help of Horace, Koreans were able to bulid mines for gold, silver, and coal, develop an electric and steam railroad, and a waterway system. Horace’s effort did not end there, he tried to pursuade Americans that Korea was a country of potential and wanted American businesses to take interest. If the American buinesses were to take interest of Korea, Koreans would be able to grow more of their modern technology and raist their financial status. As a result of Horace’s efforts, American businesses began to take intrest in Korea, and Korea was able to advance in their overall finace and
The written work of Eri Hotta entitled Japan 1941: Countdown to Infamy, narrated the succession of events which took place between Japanese officials and leaders which led to the attack of Pearl Harbor. It showed the political unrest and civic instability of Japan that resulted into the bombing. Eventually, such attack was not condoned by the military forces of the United States and they countered the aggression by also bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Thousands of lives were lost and destroyed. Accordingly, the “ Japanese Emperor Hirohito was one of the Japanese officials who expressed reservations about going to war” (Timms).
In the book chapter Culture, Power, and the Discourse of Filial Piety in Japan: The Disempowerment of Youth and Its Social Consequences, Hashimoto articulates well her critical point of view on what she calls “the piety ideology” and its social consequences of among Japan’s youth, giving many examples of youth’s disobedience and resistance against adults, especially parents. She argues that although the family law dissolved Ie system and implemented western ideal of nuclear family, which values equality, individual rights, freedom of choice, and voluntary unions had changed the children’s expectation for their relationship between their parents, the parents’ expectation for the filial piety (Oyakoko) has not changed. As she states the importance of obedience in Japanese family, she explains the details of how Japanese family, especially mother and teachers at school play an important role to create the filial child who understands the value of filial piety though the piety socialization and discourse. To explain how the piety ideology has survived in post-war Japan, she introduces three narratives to understand the piety discourse and its history. First, she states that the sacrificial mother and a strong mother-child tie enhance the reproduction of obedience by exposing child with the interchange of sacrifices between mother
Published in the International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences, this article delves into the history of Japanese Americans, examining the racism and discrimination faced by the immigrants. To begin the scholarly examination of Japanese Americans, the author writes, “Like many other U.S. minority groups, racial or not, Japanese Americans have faced an enormous amount of overt and covert discrimination throughout their history.” On the contrary, the author claims that although Japanese Americans faced rampant discrimination, they became a model minority due to their hard work and persistence. In addition, the author describes the internment of Japanese Americans, comparing it to the Holocaust, Great Migration, and the Trail of Tears. Finally, the author briefly reviews the reparations received by the Japanese Americans for their internment.
Even before the Pearl Harbor bombing the Japanese were not without discrimination, rather it just fueled the fire and increased the amount of Anti-Japanese groups. After the Pearl Harbor bombing the Executive Order 9066 was passed, causing the Japanese to be removed from their houses and placed in internment camps. The Executive Order 9066 uprooted Japanese from their studies and profession. Executive Order 9066 forced them to stop everything in their life as if what they thought did not matter as citizens of the United States and it “was one of the most flagrant violations of civil liberties in American history”(“Japanese- American Relocation”) .The Japanese were told that they were being moved for their own safety and protection(Uchida 52), which was not true. In America, there was much anger and hatred towards the Japanese.The other Americans even went as far as to call them “Japs” in order to use media play to make the public connect the Japanese Americans or Nisei to the Japanese in America to the Japanese in Japan.The state was took part in supporting the hatred, such as shown when the attorney general spoke out against the Japanese saying, ”there is no way to determine loyalty when dealing with Japanese ancestry, as opposed to those who were white”(Uchida 54).
This trial and town revolves around prejudice and racism. The Japanese has suffered from injustice treatment since they have arrived to America. The town will start to realize that about fairness after Kabuo's trial. Not only are the whites prejudice towards the Japanese, the Japanese are prejudice towards other races. Kabuo's wife,
