The Blacks will never stop talking about slavery. The American-Indian will not let us forget the genocide we committed against them. Add the Japanese-Americans to this list of our painful past.

Google “Bataan death march” for info on how Japanese military treated foreigners.

After terrorist attacks in Paris and USA, the american house of representatives organised a bill which was signed by president Obama couple of days ago for people who have traveled to Iran since 2011 or dual national Iranian citizens. According to the law, the mentioned people need to apply for visa to go to America and can not go there without visa the same as their European or Australian citizen fellows.
Terrorists born in America, Europe and Pakistan who some of them has been traveling to Saudi Arabia and Syria committed terrorist act, Iranian people are getting punished by getting boycott by the tourists and business men all around the world.

Thank you American Politicians!

We understand that. But they were far, far more humane than the treatment of Americans in Japanese custody.

Due to minor similarity in physical appearance they can’t considered practising same religion as Muslims.

We never locked up law-abiding U.S. citizens with German ancestors in 1942. Or law-abiding U.S. citizens with English ancestors in 1812.

Japanese-Americans were no less American, and no more dangerous than any of the above. Just plain racism.

He was told that we would kill Japs until Japanese was spoken only in Hell. We obviously failed at that job, unfortunately.
