美国的仇日情绪

japan’s surprise attack on pearl harbor in 1941 provoked a craving for revenge in the united states. the press helped to stir up a hate campaign against the one percent of the population who were japanese."why treat the japs well over here?" asked a columnist."personally i hate the japanese, and that goes for all of them."

while newspaper cartoons daily depicted the japanese foe in sinister stereotypes, gramophone records were released with such titles as we’re gonna have to slap the dirty little jap. signs posted in barber shops announced,"japs shaved. not responsible for accidents", and japanese americans were refused tables in restaurants.
all this culminated in an official round-up of people of japanese descent, who were held behind barbed wire at relocation centres around the country.
一九四一年日本偷袭珍珠港,美国朝野渴望复仇。报刊也助长仇恨情绪,针对的是占美国百分之一人口的日本裔人。有专栏作家说:「为什么要善待这里的日本鬼?我痛恨日本人,没有例外。」
