dc.description.abstract What types of racial profiling existed in 1941, and what were the effects of racial profiling on the Japanese who underwent the injustices of forced relocation; internment in concentration camps; and loss of not only property, material possessions, but also, most importantly, their dignity? What forces were at work in the United States that made people willing to stand by as their friends and neighbors were taken from their homes and pushed into the desert to live in barracks, lying on mattresses made of straw and thin blankets? What types of political agendas led to the internment? What does it say about America's culture that it took more than forty years before the government apologized for its role in the illegal imprisonment of more than 110,000 people of Japanese descent?
