How about showing "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo", which was before the Battle of Midway and shattered the Japanese belief that their homeland was invincible from attack.

Another one of my favorite movies!

1. The city of Los Angeles has a population of millions.
2. City of San Pedro is located where the Japanese American community USED to own homes and businesses.
3. You still haven't said who is instigating this issue.
4. You have the Executive Order wrong... not 1066...it's 9066.
5. What's your point about the Go For Broke boys?
6. You care to ask any of those 442 men about Janice Hahn and George Nakano? I doubt you actually have.

Midway is a great picture.

You still haven't said who is starting and instigating these problems (like others in this thread who have failed to present ALL the facts).

If you want to be taken seriously, you would be wise to gain respect. After all, if you are only after instigating problems, you've already done that.

1. Mini-sub? What are you talking about?
2. If denial of habeus corpus rights is so acceptable, I suppose you are willing to go to a prison for no reason?
3. FDR did create massive problems. It's just really sad that people who call themselves "conservative" CHOOSE to continue FDR's ridiculous interpretation of Pearl Harbor or of EO9066.
4. REAL conservatives actually step back from media rhetoric and actually THINK.

1. My relatives who were interned at Manzanar were from central Los Angeles, not San Pedro. Also, Rattlesnake Island is not San Pedro. Japanese Americans were interned from all over the southland.
2. See Response to #1 above.
3. Joe Janesic, a volunteer with the Fort MacArthur Military Museum, San Pedro.
4. Ooops. I apologise.
5. Your presumption that showing Tora! Tora! Tora! will inflame racism says more about you than the people you condemn.
