My name is Letrice. I'm 20. I believe in feminism. This includes but is not limited to: Stuff relating to feminism/racism/other activist stuff, movies, books, music, and occasionally k-pop. Sorry for that last one.
This Sunday marks the 70th anniversary of President Franklin Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the forced internment of more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans who lived along the West Coast. The order came after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. In the wake of the attack, Japanese-Americans were immediately cast as a threat too dangerous to be allowed to live freely.
…. For many, the country’s post-9/11 treatment of American Muslims, Arabs, South Asians and people of Middle Eastern descent carries near identical echoes of the not so distant past. Many Japanese-Americans have spoken out about the increased surveillance and indefinite detention that Muslim and Arab communities face today.
