They were previously “special targets of white hostility ” (Pbs 1) and when the bombing happened they were set up to be blamed. Before Japanese Americans could not own land, eat in white restaurants, and some could not become citizens. They were not considered real citizens of the united states and this caused people to believe that they were traitors and untrustworthy. The bombing gave Americans a chance to “ renew their hostility toward their Japanese neighbor.”(Pbs 1) This meant that they could take back what they claimed as theirs. The purpose of the US’s prevailing 2018 belief of the Japanese-Americans in 1941 was to make people as if they were obligated to falsely blame Japanese descent for the bombing.
She was left to take care of Li-Lin as her family in Nanjing were all mercilessly murdered by the Taiping soldiers. For example, after the invasion, Su-Yin was left without a job. The Chun household and other staff that she worked for ran away to their families or were murdered by the relentless soldiers. The now, treacherous city of Nanjing has left a vast amount of carnage and Su-Yin deliberating about the grieving families that remain. This external conflict has left her full of terror.
Japan attacked us first thinking that they could take us out of the war before we even joined. This choice however ended up being very costly. People like to argue about the amount of civilians killed by the bombings but fail to realize the high amount of military deaths that would have been caused by an invasion. Deaths of soldiers are still considered casualties. Why would we want to put our troops in that
However, the Japanese government continues to deny that this event ever happened and fails to teach it in their school curriculum. Many Japanese civilians are clueless as to what happened during the war between China and Japan. After the Rape of Nanking ended, very few Japanese soldiers were put on trial, and only seven were executed. Many of the men who participated in the mass killing and raping of the Chinese continued to hold political office after their time in the army was completed. Iris Chang wrote this book in such exorbitant detail to demand an official apology from the Japanese government to those affected by the evil they endowed on the innocent citizens, as well as educate future generations about the onus that their government
(Anon., 2010) In the movie, Mulan’s leadership was portrayed through her actions in the movie.

Sammy says, “ I look around for the girls but they’re gone, of course” (Updike) meaning that Sammy goes to find these girls but he can not find them. Sammy believes that quitting his job made some big heroic move to win these girls over but really they do not care. Sammy says “The girls, and who’d blame them, are in a hurry to get out, so I say ‘I quit’ to Lengel quick enough for them to hear, hoping they’ll stop and watch me, their unsuspected hero.” (Updike) right after he tells his boss he is quitting. The girls do not even notice, and that is when Sammy realizes what he had hoped for did not happen and that he quit his good job for no reason. Sammy goes from, being happy to believing briefly he has a chance with these girls to realizing they do not even care to give him a
I feel as though she may have not forgiven the killers for murdering her family. The Captain from the French army offered to Immaculee that he would be willing to avenge her family and kill any Hutu murderers for her. She was shocked by this offer, and she would have wanted it in her early days in the bathroom. But that was before she had opened her heart to God and he had saved her (Left to Tell 158). God saved her so that she may live to tell her story to everyone and help save others and bring them close to God as
As a result, she changes by becoming an independent young lady. 3. The passage in Farewell to Manzanar that stood out most to me is, “When your mother and father are having a fight do you want them killing each other? Or do you just want them to stop fighting?” (64) This quote means that Jeanne wants her parents to stop fighting with each other, and her father to stop being so violent. along with that, an abundance of other people can relate to how she feels about her parents
The ones unable to cope with the training must ring a symbolic bell, which is the expression of the resignation from the unit. The exercise detachment of seals "is captured" and is being bullied by the trainers: Command Master Chief John James Urgayle and others.

Mr. Guizac tries to get one of the negroes, Sulk, to marry is white cousin. Mrs. McIntyre is appalled by this because blacks and whites were not to marry.

Mrs. McIntyre does not wat to have to worry about firing Mr. Guizac so when she sees his death is near she does nothing to stop it.
naval base Pearl Harbor, for no reason. The biggest reason for attacking Pearl Harbor was that the Pacific Fleet, Pearl Harbor’s fleet, was the only thing that stood in the way of Japan taking over the South Pacific. At first, Japan wanted to destroy China, because of their marketing, but it soon became much bigger than that(Pearl Harbor). World domination was their main goal. Another reason for the attack was our relationship with Japan, for at the time war was inevitable between us and Japan.
The Japanese Americans were treated unfairly during their captivation in the internment camps. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought the US into the second World War making the Japanese people an easy target for hate and suspicion. The American government forced all Japanese Americans into internment camps that were extremely cramped and unsanitary. The anti-Japanese propaganda influenced by the raging war just outside America, fueled Americans with hatred and distrust towards these immigrants which in turn made the engagement of the Japanese people, as well as culture such an easy feat. The United States was launched into WWII on December 7, 1941, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.
Japan was planning on surrender, before the bomb was dropped. One reason was, Japan was getting ready to negotiate a peace settlement, yet Truman still decided to drop the bomb. The U.S. saw they were going to surrender (they knew). The U.S. was able to set up spying devices, and were able to hear some of the plans Japan was negotiating. Moreover, Japan’s not the reason this war started, yet two of their cities were obliterated, and many civilians died for doing nothing.
Others were so upset that they started making prejudices against Japanese-Americans. With this Japanese residents were rounded up and put in camps. Once in war, the taxes raised to support the war effort. The work industry became more important because they need cars, weapons, and ammo. The whole country changed gears and made sure they did whatever they could to win the war.
