Description

Kaneshiro goes through his family background, where his parents originated from Okinawa and immigrated to Hawaii. However, on a visit back to Okinawa, his mother's visa expired and she was unable to get back to Hawaii, stranding George and his brothers in Japan for 11 years. It was there that they went to school until his father asked him to come back to Hawaii. A year later, Kaneshiro decided to move to Los Angeles to attend high school and work as a houseboy for only three dollars a week. Finally, he talks about his reaction to Pearl Harbor and the Japanese government.
