Description

In this video clip, Rudy Tokiwa talks about his many experiences with racial prejudice and discrimination against Japanese Americans. He talks about the time the FBI broke into their home the day after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and trashed his father's US Army uniform from WWI. He recalls what his day was like on the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor, and how he and his brother were harassed by the other students at school the following day. He describes the driving restrictions that were imposed on Japanese Americans during that time, and about the time his brother-in-law was shot by the police.
