What I’m Reading: Silver Like Dust – 12 in a series – “…the Japanese to show loyalty to America were disregarded.”

August 6th, 2019

”For the most part, however, the attempts of the Japanese to show loyalty to America were disregarded. As New Year’s shifted into mid-January and then February, hakujin paranoia and anger heightened. The flags, portraits, and signs were insignificant. Citizenship, too, became irrelevant. What mattered was the dark hair and slanted eyes—and the treachery assumed to be behind those eyes.”

From  Silver Like Dust by Kimi Cunningham Grant

What I'm Reading: Those were hakujin beaches. Whites-only beaches.
