The part played by the Californian establishment shouldn't be overlooked either. They saw an opportunity to seize the generally profitable and valuable Japanese-American owned farmlands outside LA. Just remember that they were the same people who turned their backs on predominantly WASP "Okies" during the depression. Wild and crazy liberal California was some way in the future.

That is true but the executive order authorising internment was still signed by Roosevelt and despite what Malcolm said Roosevelt's record on civil rights was actually quite poor one thing that is ignored is that many of the New Deal programs were segregated in order to appease the Dixiecrats.

You've convinced me, FDR was a cunt.
I never said that Malcolm, he was a great President but he wasn't without his flaws.

Would you be so kind as to repost it?
Ta muchly.

The interment of many Japanese/American citizens during WWII was very much a notable blot on FDR's record, but pobody's nerfect.
