Description

Rudy Tokiwa talks about growing up on a farm in Salinas, California. When he was in high school, he moved to Japan and traveled to Manchuria and Korea. He describes what it was like living in Japan and how his fellow Japanese students treated him -- he felt more accepted among his own people than being labelled a "Jap" in the United States. His uncle made him return to the states before the war broke out. At the end of the clip, he discusses his views about the discrimination of Japanese Americans during World War II.
