One thing that the Japanese did with the Chinese Soldiers was that they would call them cowards before either mercilessly beating them to death, or beheading them. They would rape the women from the age of 8 to older than 70. If they found anyone with their family they would make members of the family do horrible things to other family members, just to tear the family apart before killing them. Organization was used, as groups of Japanese soldiers would gather and go on mass killing sprees. Polarization was not used, because all of the Japanese already hated the Chinese, and they were already separated.
Roosevelt 's actions were not justified because many of the Japanese Americans were nonviolent. Many of these Japanese people lost their businesses, homes, and income just because of the idea they were terrorists. Roosevelt believed there were hundreds of Japanese spies in the United States which affected his decision to send the Japanese to internment camps. In reality many of the Japanese had done a lot for the American community. They lived their lives exactly the same and had nothing to do with Japanese violence.
December 7, 1941, Japanese planes bombed Pearl Harbor. Moments after, President Franklin Roosevelt declared war against the Axis Powers, joining in on World War II. On February 12, 1942, the Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which called for the internment of all Japanese Americans. Although the American population were insecure about their safety and American businessmen feared the Japanese invading the American economy, the main reason for the issuance of Executive Order 9066 was the racial discrimination against the Japanese. When Pearl Harbor happened, many Americans started to believe the propaganda posters about the Japanese.
This awful event is controversial to this day when discussing who 's to blame for this crime. We have the servicemen who physically and mentally hurt those who wore zoot suits, and they are seen as the doers of this crime. On the other hand, others blame the media for spreading this news without making the Zoot Suiters seem innocent. The media took advantage of this opportunity to bash the Mexican American community in Los Angeles. The 1930s wasn
This book shows how labels can affect almost everyone and shows how you can be judged on almost anything. You can be judged on how you look, skin color, the people you associate with, and much more. Even though Tom Robinson lost to Bob he should have won and he would 've if it wasn 't for his skin color. .

Discrimination: One of the most devastating constrains to leisure participation experienced by people who have been oppressed is discrimination. As the book says, discrimination is fueled by ignorance. Art was discriminated by many people and many times in the movie; for example, the first time he went to the Pancake House, he ended in the police station just because of his physical appearance; Value diversity: Diversity must be valued and celebrated focusing on recognizing capacities of people, realizing there is an array of contribution to be made, believing that all people are inherently worthy, and doing one 's best and helping others do the same. Before ADA, people with disabilities were not valued or included, as we saw in the
Harper Lee’s masterful novel exposes the dark underbelly of society, a society overflowing with hate, narrow mindedness and prejudice. This behaviour is deemed as natural, and few people question the roles put in place, this is truly terrifying so we are lead to wonder if what we accept as normal is perhaps corrupt instead. Race is the dominant cause of inequality in To Kill A Mockingbird, thus Maycomb’s views on race heavily influence every aspect of life. Although racial inequality is clearly illustrated in the in the injustice, prejudice, discrimination and antagonism surrounding the Tom Robinson trial, it is also shown more subtly throughout the novel. In Chapter 25 Atticus Finch is quoted disclosing that the corrupt justice system is a direct cause of a racist society.
As well as the fact that many Japanese held dual citizenship, meaning they were able to travel freely throughout both America and Japan. This worried many officials, leading to the suspicion that Japanese-Americans had been conspiring against the United States from under their very noses, thinking that perhaps maybe the enemy lie in the very grounds of which they slept. Furthermore leading to the legalization of Executive order 9066 by the Supreme Court. It has been pointed out that Japanese-Americans had been singled out and punished due to the fact that they were the only ones among the axis nations that had attacked the United States. Even though no record records that any Japanese-Americans ever rebelled against the United States, during that time no one could be sure, (Point/Counterpoint: The Japanese-American
America was tuning into the disgust of the Japanese through propaganda. Posters indicated the horror in Southeast Asia, depicting Japanese soldiers beating and murdering Americans (Document B). Casualty statistics were also printed on the posters, adding to America’s animosity towards Japan. The United States had a tool to stop all of this, not only to protect American lives, but also to prevent the death of millions
Here, Grant portrays the general perspective towards immigrants, as nativists considered them to be a threat to the superiority and purity of the United States. Grant describes them as being physically and mentally deteriorated, in order to convey how the inferior immigrants would impede the American civilization socially, morally, and politically. Reverend Josiah Strong further elaborates on the negative impacts of immigration when he states, “…immigration not only furnishes the greater portion of our criminals, it is also seriously affecting the morals of the native population. It is disease and not health which is contagious. Most foreigners bring with them continental ideas of the Sabbat, and the result is sadly manifest in all our cities…debauching [corrupting] popular morals is the liquor traffic, and this is chiefly carried on by the foreigners…” (Document 2).
The often racist and offensive propaganda found on war bond posters, and other merchandise led to a huge increase in racist thoughts and urges. This is shown when Frank Keegan, a hearty, full-of-himself, true American says “We were dreadfully frightened of the Japanese. For years we were told of the yellow hordes. We had the Oriental Exclusion Act. Even before Pearl Harbor we were scared of them”(36).
It is pretty undisputable that the Canadians did hold prejudice and was racist towards the Japanese people. Many believe this to be the driving reason to the Japanese’ internment. Pre-Pearl Harbor, racism was not as intense, but still was real. There was some level of racism ever since the first Japanese people entered Canada in 1877 ("The Internment of the Japanese during World War II."). They were always looked down upon for the inability to speak the language there.
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.
Many innocent Japanese American citizens were affected by Executive Order 9066. President Roosevelt ordered Executive Order 9066 out of desperation and fear. Every american citizen was on edge, and was scared after Pearl Harbor. Slowly, the fear and discrimination of Japanese Americans began. The mindset of the feared Americans was incorrect, but they saw no other option besides internment camps.
Most were Canadian citizens who were mistreated. There was a lot of racism, propaganda and hatred towards Japanese Canadians, even though they were not criminals. This had violated the rights that citizens had because the Japanese were being falsely accused for espionage.
