Overview

December 7, 1941, "A date that will live in infamy" not only spurred the United States' entry into WWII, but also firmly cemented America's hatred toward the Japanese Americans. From that date forward, the United States treated the American Japanese like the enemy within and forced them into internment camps (Mostly makeshift fairgrounds and deserts) for the duration of the war. The lives of the Japanese Americans were unbearable in the most deserted places in the country. No time in history have people lived in these areas, but from the years 1941-4946, they were home to over 100,000 Americans that were forced from their homes, communities, and separated from their families. This is a dark sopt on American history that all should learn about. Read it here in Racism Prevails: The Internment of the Japanese Americans by Brandon Mayes.
