Zone1 When Japanese Americans fought in the 1980s for Reparations Black politicians and civil rights leaders fought with them

Your angry, emotional and irrational response does not further your point

You lack historical perspective and do not understand how traumatic the attack on Pearl Harbor was

If there was no love lost for japanese already they were downright hated after dec 7

Murder or severe bodily harm by outraged white citizens was not out of the question

Heck, my Dad's generation would refuse to buy Japanese Cars because they were STILL pissed about Pearl Harbor all the way until the 1970's.

Was some of that racism? Yes. Some of it was genuine anger.
 

Blacks leaders fought along with Japanese to help them get reparations. This is something that doesn't get mentioned. It should get mentoned.

Japanese Americans won redress, fight for Black reparations​


When Miya Iwataki and other Japanese Americans fought in the 1980s for the U.S. government to apologize to the families it imprisoned during World War II, Black politicians and civil rights leaders were integral to the movement.

Thirty-five years after they won that apology — and survivors of prison camps received $20,000 each— those advocates are now demanding atonement for Black Americans whose ancestors were enslaved. From California to Washington, D.C., activists are joining revived reparations movements and pushing for formal government compensation for the lasting harm of slavery's legacy on subsequent generations, from access to housing and education to voting rights and employment.

Advocating for reparations is “the right thing to do,” said Iwataki, a resident of South Pasadena, California who is in her 70s. She cited cross-cultural solidarity that has built up over decades.

Black lawmakers such as the late California congressmen Mervyn Dymally and Ron Dellums played critical roles in winning the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, which formalized the government's apology and redress payments.

If living Japanese survivors of FDR Camps received $20,000, todays Reparationists should get 2 cents, as a class

You win!

Give all the surviving slaves $44,000, and we'll call it square. It seems to me that all the heirs of those slaves owe us reparations for having brought their ancestors to America and out of Africa.
 
You said the victims of fdr's concentration camps were "safer." You didn't say good or bad. YOU would be much safer in prison. Ready?
Do you compare japanese in internment camps to murderers, thieves, and rapists in prison?

You have a very low opinion of the japanese

They were AMERICANS.

They were thrown into fdr's CONCENTRATION CAMPS.

No one has made any such comparison. Not even you.

You're still too chickenshit to answer the question.

You equated the internment camps holding peaceful Japanese Americans to prisons where the worst criminals society has to offer are confined

Well no duh! They wanted to help set precedent for themselves.
