William Fu Short Assignment 1.2 Malhotra English 131 A7 Segregation of Japanese-Americans The unconstitutional relocation and imprisonment of Japanese-Americans during World War 2 by the United States was one of the clearest denials of liberties; yet the States were still allowed to do so at the time with little resistance. This was possible after the bombing of Pearl Harbor by the U.S. government mass producing propaganda posters showing racist stereotypes of an animal like Japanese threat; Japanese people as rat faced, slit-eyed, gnawing toothed creatures. The Japanese enemy was often pictured in the form of ugly and frightening animals ranging from snakes, bats, and rats. Soon after followed the incarceration of all individuals of Japanese ancestry living on the West Coast due to propaganda created assumptions that the Japanese were nevertheless foreign, untrustworthy, and not American simply because they were Japanese. The cultural identity of the entire Japanese-American population was modified by American propaganda to allow the American government to migrate these aliens easier into concentration camps. This photomontage shows the created myth about the Japanese as well as the results of the propaganda.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
