Japanese-American’s Visit WWII Incarceration Camp: Just some thoughts.

Listening to the reflections of the participants in this video and hearing what other American’s were saying about our Japanese American brethren is truly heartbreaking. As An African-American living in America, I can empathize with these feelings of self-doubt and questioning what it means to be “American” in a country where many people support the rhetoric which Donald Trump, the Westboro Baptist Church, and Ann Coulter preach.

I often wonder how our Asian, Latinx and Native brothers and sisters feel in America when it only seems like the white and black stories of today are making the news. Shoutout to Buzz Feed for  creating such an enlightening us on a portion of the modern Japanese-American story.
