  • Justifiable To Intern The Japanese Americans
    1,451 words
    FYI (This is a biased written paper written if one were to defend Japanese Internment) The Necessity of Japanese Internment Much controversy has been sparked due to the internment of the Japanese people. Many ask whether it was justified to internment them. It is a very delicate issue that has two sides, those who are against the internment of the Japanese-Americans and those who are for it. With World War II raging in the East, America was still, for the most part, very inactive in the war. Whe...
  • Surprise Attack At Pearl Harbor
    1,550 words
    The attack on Pear Harbor has influenced history in a way that has made America stronger. It helped America unite as a country, allowing them to overcome greater obstacles. One example is the recent tragedy of September 11. I believe that Pearl Harbor helped unite America as a nation so when the bombing on September 11 happened, it helped the U.S. handle this tragedy. In my report, I would like to tell you of the events leading up to the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor and subsequent events. I...
  • Sudden Change In The Japanese Lifestyle
    651 words
    The American occupation of Japan Fifty years after the end of the second World War, it is easy to look back on the American occupation of Japan and see it as a mild nudge to the left rather than a new beginning for the country. We still see an emperor, even if only as a symbol. Industry, when it was rebuilt, was under much of the same leadership as before the war. Many elements of the traditional lifestyle remained-with less government support and in competition with new variants. The Japanese p...
  • American Citizens Of Japanese
    1,455 words
    In spring of 1942, immediately after the United States entered war with Japan, the Federal government instructed a policy where hundreds of thousands of people of Japanese ancestry were evacuated into relocation camps. Many agree that the United States government was not justified with their treatment towards the Japanese during World War II. This Japanese-American experience of incarceration is believed to be unconstitutional, demonstrating racism and causing social and economic hardships for t...
  • Assimilation Of People Into American Society
    1,244 words
    Several years ago, America was taught to be a 'melting pot,' a place where immigrants of different cultures or races form an integrated society, but now America is more of a 'salad bowl' where instead of forming an incorporated entity the people who make up the bowl are unwilling to unite as one. America started as an immigrant nation and has continued to be so. People all over the world come to America for several reasons. Most people come to America voluntarily, but very few come unwillingly. ...

    On December 7, 1941 The Japanese military bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. After this bombing, America took a larger step into the involvement in the Second World War.

  • Japanese Immigration To America
    596 words
    A 1949 parade was Los Angeles's first post-World War II event to celebrate Japanese-American culture. It honors the Nisei, second-generation Japanese-Americans, who descended from the Issei, the first generation of Japanese to come to America. Japanese immigration to America began in 1882 with the Meiji Restoration. The Meiji Restoration in Japan marked a time of Westernization and change. For the first time in two centuries, foreigners could enter Japan and Japanese citizens could leave. So, wh...
  • Internment Camps In America
    691 words
    The easiest way to escape any type of trouble is the shift the blame to another. This is demonstrated in every day life, and has formed a pattern in history. In World War II, not only were the Japanese, African Americans, and Jewish people fighting for their countries, but they were also struggling for their freedom and self worth. It is human nature to be afraid of difference, and intimidated by the unusual. The Japanese Americans were sent to Japan and to internment camps in America to prevent...
