New "And Then They Came for Us" w/ Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange photos: WW-II Japanese Internment
[ABA 'Silver Gavel' Award--2018] Finally, a near-complete dossier of the UnConstitutional internment via Race.
Here shown on PBS, presumably everywhere.
(Pretty good timing, I wot--The Orange Menace would do such in a Trice. If We Let Him. And, 'we' might -->?
Kudoes, P.B.S. (why isn't it on The Meeja? {rhetorical}.

Whatever lore you have re that disgusting Four and a Half Years in concentration camps in the Worst-possible locales, do see this 1 hr. masterpiece. The disgust is heightened of course by the very FACT that: we are near-to a State-of-such alien-kind: as to see a Reprise.

I vividly recall the posters, indistinguishable from the Nazi-equivalents re Jews (though I knew nothing of that, as a tyke.) Recall the visceral-HATE-speech re "The Japs" essentially all-around, nor did I ever overhear? an ""adult"" make any remark even suggesting that "those folks in the Camps are 'American Citizens''/let alone a mention of 'the Constitution'. Unwittingly and prematurely: I was seeing what sort of people I would grow up amidst.
[Tanforan/a horse stable, was just down the road from San Mateo CA] where I was for a couple years. You'll see clear pix of that place @1 family-per-STALL, as they built the shacks to hold them for 4.5 years.

..That the dis-US is NO BETTER today--however the Russian-roulette of 11/2020 turns out--the final-nail has already been driven into that coffin,
RIP American-fantasy: you were full-of-shit from the beginning.
So at least That's Settled. Law.

Carrion. Go see the PIx of that.(Lovely that both Adams and Lange made sure to shoot memorable human-portraits of the victims--some of those locked-up/then in embarrassment--until long after the perps could be confronted/publicly. 'Cousre not just 'Muricans ever-Shall CYA aka Eternal vigilance, now at nanosecond speed.
New It's amazing how long the attitude lasted.
In 1979 when I moved from Upstate NY to Charlotte, NC and had my '74 Subaru shipped. When I was picking it up in Charlotte, I was told "How could you buy a Jap car?"

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
New Once it was amazing; now ... ... also, GMTA :-)
I bought a new Subaru ..maybe '76? Great car; I went for the naturally-balanced flat-four sans the air-cooled problems of VW. Only part I bought (had it ~3 years): was the little rubber seat-belt keep-away; once it had a crankcase to cylinder gasket leak, out-Warranty and fair amount of dismantling; expected to pay a few C-notes then; Subaru comped-it! I paid maybe $50 for incidentals (Have likely 'sold' two or three new Subarus via that story.)

Believe that their Mad-success nowadays began from just such largesse early-on. They Knew how Americans hated the Dealer-scams in sales, thence in any small repair. I wish them Well.
New A bit of history
