Red Ink and Rewrites Too

Duplicates online comments, to keep track.

George Takei “Heroes come in many forms…”

with one comment

As Norman Yoshio Mineta, the former Democrat Cabinet member under both George W. Bush and William J. Clinton explained, it was, I think he meant, as if Japanese-Americans were then not allowed to own property in California, unless there really was a law like that. Some have suggested Anglo farmers wanted Mexicans and Mexican-Americans to work on their farms, not Japanese-Americans and FDR conceded, an "over-the-barrel" bind of strategic resources in time of war. The few people I’ve met associated with the internments were often pro-American democracy, Morris Opler, PhD, anthropologist, helped write three of the four suits brought before the US Supreme Court on behalf of internees, i.e., Americans have rights as did his study people, the Apache, misunderstood. His brother Marvin Opler, PhD was also a noted anthropologist I once had the time to study with in Buffalo, NY. My father in WWII in Italy had quite a respect for the so-called "nisei" (second generation) who fought bravely there, earning more decorations than any other unit, and elsewhere, at great loss in some circumstances, i.e. Battle of the Bulge, rescuing US Army Texans.

  1. Calif. was very racists during WWII, especially with the help of Hearst and his newspapers. The Mexican farmer workers admitted to wanting their rivals (the Nisei) out of the way, and things were so bad, even the interment camps were moved to other states. FDR was raised to be a white-supremacist – so that pretty much tells the story.
