"President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, in effect authorizing the incarceration of some 120,000 people of Japanese descent living on the West Coast, for 'protection against espionage and against sabotage.' Two-thirds of them were American citizens." And Hawaii. My grandparents were rounded up and taken to California. My dad was born inside the camp at Tule Lake.

@editor WWII was a time that brought the nation together in so many ways and temporarliy broke down some walls/made progress on the race front. But this was a sad exception. So sorry your grandparents and father had to suffer it.
