Comm 10 Essay Exam No.2 COMM 10 (1159) 2:45-4:50pm Tsui, Tsz Kin Martin (Martin) Q: National Security and Racial Profiling : Was the detention of more than 100,000 West Coast residents of Japanese ancestry from 1941 to 1945 the right thing to do after the bombing of Pearl Harbor? What did you think about the media images/stereotypes (and the newspaper headlines in your reader) that followed? Should United States officials also detained Muslims and other “suspected” terrorists after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001? Why? Clearly explain and support your answers(s). Thesis Statement: I don’t think the detention of the West Coast residents of Japanese ancestry was the right thing to do after the bombing of Pearl Harbor even though I personally understand the reason why United States made the decision. The media images, the stereotypes and the newspaper headlines blackened the image of, insulted and offended Japanese people. Finally, United States officials should not detained Muslims but “suspected” terrorists after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. According to the video clips presented in class, the United States government allowed the local military to “remove” Japanese and Japanese Americans from the West Coast of the U.S. to the constructed camps called "War Relocation Centers" after the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan on December 7, 1941, which brought the United States into World War II. The purpose of the detention was because the U.S. governor and the military leaders doubted the loyalty of Japanese people in the country, where many of them (including those who born in America) were raised in Japan where the school syllabus often emphasized veneration for the Emperor. It was feared that this population might commit acts of espionage or sabotage for the Japanese military. Therefore, it is understandable that President Franklin Roosevelt authorized the internment 2 months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
