Description

Yano continues to talk about his schooling, taking a history class and finding the Constitution and the way the Japanese Americans were being treated was unjust. He would end up throwing the book across the room and leaving the classroom, never to return again. After this, he goes back and talks about the attacks on Pearl Harbor, playing basketball in Lindsay, and seeing the reaction of his father. They would be faced with a lot of restrictions and curfew, seeing a lot of prejudice throughout the process. His family would be evacuated and sent to Gila River Concentration Camp, losing almost all of their personal belongings and leaving the farm to a man that would end up stealing a lot of their produce. After this, he talks about arriving at the camp, and seeing one of his friends from high school working as a military policeman, ignoring Yano.
