The Backlash of WWII Fears

Conference Room D

Powerful and radical racism on the California coast that was brought roughly around the same time that WWII anxiety had been brought closer to America, is what led to the harsh and inaccurate punishment that many Japanese-Americans faced after the bombing of Pearl harbor. Japanese-Americans were targeted and left stranded in a nation that now viewed them as a threat. As the only means of dealing with this reality, many Japanese-Americans who were once deemed trusted citizens were stripped of that privilege for no other reason than their race and left like prisoners behind barbed wire fences.
