What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 26 in a series – “Call it the foretaste of being hated.”

August 24th, 2019

“Somehow I didn’t quite believe that, or didn’t want to believe such things could happen to us. It was the humiliation. That continuous, unnamed ache I had been living with was precise and definable now. Call it the foretaste of being hated. I knew ahead of time that if someone looked at me with hate, I would have to allow it, to swallow it, because something in me, something about me deserved it.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
