Secluding the Japanese was a fault, which was reprieved, but it poses questions it happening again to Middle Easterners and Muslims. The hate plaguing them is not based upon fact or national security, but rather fear that another Pearl Harbor will happen again shattering the façade of an invincible American force. These are lessons that inspire us and warn us to not place contempt or have unwarranted fear for people who are not Caucasian, but are just as American as you and I.
Because of the distance between Japan and Hawaii, it was found that the attack had been planned days, possibly weeks beforehand (Roosevelt, 170). During the time before the attack, the Japanese had deceived the United States into believing they were at peace with one another. Because of the bombing by Japan, the American people were mourning the loss of their soldiers' lives. They also were angry with the destruction of the naval and military forces, along with the attacks on Hong Kong, Guam, the Philippine Islands, Wake Island, and Midway Island all within hours of each other. The American people, along with the government, wanted nothing more than to destroy Japan, and win the war.
The attack on Pearl Harbor had changed the common view of the Japanese as nearly supernatural fighters, and this new view instilled fear in Americans. The view also instilled with the Americans the belief that Japanese differed from them in more than just militant aspects, but also in basic aspects of humanity. Fear of the Japanese would lead the Americans to want extra assurances that the Japanese threat would end, and Americans would be safe. The idea that the Japanese were different than Americans and Europeans on a basic level would also encourage the use of the atomic bomb because the prospective murder of women, children, and other Japanese civilians would hold less meaning. Evidence of racism from one of the American leaders who had direct influence on Truman and the decision to use the atomic bomb could help prove the role of racism in the decision.

JapaneseAmericans In the early 1940’s, there was evidence of Japanese-American loyalty and innocence, but the information was not always well known. This, coupled with the factors of war hysteria led to the legal upholding of concentration camps in Korematsu v. U.S. (1944). The injustice was clouded, most immediately by the war, and indirectly by racism at home. The sneak attack on Pearl Harbor left a permanent indent on the way Americans viewed the Japanese. Indeed, it was this one act which thrust the isolationist U.S. into the middle of the world’s biggest war.
