Correcting Injustice ~ WWII US-Japanese Camps

Thanks to Cambridge's CCTV for spotlighting both the disgraceful injustice of the forced internship during WWII of US Citizens of Japanese-decent into concentration camps and the 1988 US legislation apologizing for this misdeed. The bill admited that "race prejudice, war hysteria, and a failure of political leadership" occurred and authorized $1.6 billion in reparations to Japanese-Americans or their heirs. Justice can ultimately prevail -- and that's one more reason why the US is a great country!
