So, their home wasn't a place to dwell on? Well, in any case, new generations making up for historical injustices is certainly near and dear to any liberal media hearts....

If it weren't for what happened for these Japanese Americans
and their internment by the U.S. government........
Nowadays in this terrorist world we are in, the Arab Americans,
Somalis, & so on would be in camps already!
Past history oppression & wrongs has it's way of teaching us
what is right to do & wrong in respect to human rights in the U.S.
WWII was a dangerous time for all people. Perhaps the internment helped many Japanese survive in the US and also offered some degree of safety for other Americans. I know that I would sleep better knowing certain potential terrorists were interned today.

Why is everyone getting so overworked about this? Why can't we all just admire Carly and Michelle's hard work? They had nothing to do with the actual matter, but they still wanted to let everyone who was affected be remembered. I think it was a very sweet and kind thing to do. Good job, ladies.

I agree what happen to Japanese Americans in WWII was wrong.
But we are judging history though our generations eyes. Not those who really feared anther attack and/or invasion of the USA after the sneak attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941.
Japanese Americans that lived though WWII here in the USA had a very difficult time. But that was nothing compared to the terror Americans in Japan or Japanese Territorys endured during that same time period. The Japanese have never said sorry to them or their descendents or paid them reparations.
You don't get it. That is what Japan did to foreigners - which was completely wrong. The American Concentration camp story is what our government did to it's own people.

When are we going to stop apologizing for the mistakes of the past and move forward with the future. We are do d*mned afraid of offending people that the government feels the need to apologize to everyone who was done wrong. Good grief, get over it. Yes, it was horrible. It was war and it's what our government thought was the right thing to do at the time. No, it was't right but we cannot change the past.
But we can't forget what happened. We need to remember and learn the lessons from the past or we'll never grow.

I remember 911. The lesson I have learned tells me that we should intern all potential Islamic terrorists.
