How have Japanese-Americans become more respected and what are their accomplishments in America? Do you still think that prejudice exists against them? Why or why not? Please post or send a comment to me. I am doing a project about this subject matter of tolerance vs. prejudice. Thank you!
I didn't know what to think when I had heard about the attack, I was of course upset, but I didn't know what to think. About an hour later it hit me that yes, we were attacked, I cried and couldn't believe that it happened, I mean we live in America the best place in the world. I noticed that right after the event of 9/11 I had this need to put the blame on someone and I noticed how mad and upset I was at the Arab world. Even though this event has broght us together I did lose an uncle and an aunt I will forever miss them.
Let's hope that history doesn't ever repeat itself, and that we learn from our Nations past mistakes and shortsightedness. I apologize to the families who were treated like cattle and herded into "human ranches". Please forgive the Past actions of a nation that was confused whilst in the grips of war.
I think there is only a limited comparison between 9/11 and Pearl Harbor or Hiroshima/Nagasaki. Pearl harbor was a surprise attack, like 9/11, but Americans knew that a war was going on in Europe and that agressions were taking place in Asia. I don't think most Americans had any sense of the level of hostility that exsited among extreemists before 9/11. The nuclear attacks on Japan were conducted during a state of war. Therefore they do not compare directly to the 9/11 attack. Of course, there is much room for discussion about what actions are moral and just during a war -- that is what war tribunals are for.
Thank you for providing this oportunity to share ideas.
The events of 9/11 and Pearl harbor are similar in two ways:1)tremendous loss of human lives and 2)xenophobic reactions of the american populace. But, I would agree with the previous post that there is a greater similarity between the 9/11 attacks and the Hiroshima bombings.
