  •  How many people attacked Arabs after 9/11 ? (0+ / 0-)

    Maybe a couple dozen. A handful of murders, usually hitting the wrong nationalities. LA's Iranians had a lot of problems with that.

    After Pearl Harbor there were dozens of murders in California. Mostly gangsters taking advantage of the situation. Burglaries aimed at Japanese exploded.

    FDR knew he couldn't protect the Japanese. Imagine if there had been a pogrom ? Something like Ocoee, Florida.

    Btw: that 120,000 figure is less than half the Japanese-Americans in the country.

    Boston didn't clean them out. Maine didn't, or Vermont or New Hampshire. Same generally across the upper Midwest.

    California was the big problem because of the many Southerners who had relocated during the 1930s. They'd shoot anybody.
