Farewell to Manzanar Essay (Discrimination)

No votes yet

General Dewitt says, ?A Jap is a Jap, citizen or not, they will never change and cannot be trusted!? This anti-Japanese sentiment is shared by many Americans after Japan bomb Pearl Harbor in 1941. The Americans blame all the Japanese and people of Japanese ancestry for the bombing. They look at the Japanese Americans with fear and distrust. As a result, the Japanese American become the target of racial discrimination; Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and her father, Ko Wakatsuki are among those being discriminated. To let people know how Japanese Americans are treated in America at that time, Jeanne Wakatsuki wrote, Farewell to Manzanar. Jeanne and Ko Wakatsuk are resilient when dealing with discrimination.
