Today is #DayOfRemembrance, a day commemorating the forced internment of more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry—including citizens—during World War II by Executive Order 9066. In those 120,000 were many members of my family, one of whom was my grandfather. A mantra in our community is #NeverAgain. However, in order to not repeat history, we must know our history—as individuals and as a country. The Internment, or “camp” as it’s referred to in my family, was a few sentences in my high school textbook. My education was over the dinner table, at family gatherings, and quiet moments of clenched jaws with long silences. I ask you take a moment today to learn the history of my family and my community (if you need resources, DM me and I’ll slide some your way), and the ways in which our injustices echo in the injustices today. Please join us in a commitment to never let this happen again.

Executive Order 9066 signed on February 19th, 1942 was literally one of the worst failures of American history on its own people. This is not a social studies article, this is what actually happened to my family. If I had been born 42 years earlier I would’ve been in those barracks/horse stalls with them. I cannot imagine what they went through for simply being Japanese, but I’ll never forget and will always stand up for what is right. During times like these we need to stick together, not tear each other apart. This is real life, stay woke. #EO9066 #NeverAgain #Yonsei

#neverforget #nev#neveragain ・・・ @thentheycameforme: Six-year-old Mamoru “Mamo” Takeuchi reported, in uniform, with his mother, Kiwa, and three brothers. Months earlier, his father, Jingo, had been taken away as a “dangerous” alien because he taught at a Japanese-language school and ran a school that offered instruction in jukendo, Japanese sword fighting. In 1945, his mother died at the Crystal City Internment Camp in Texas. “My father was devastated,” he said. -- from "Un-American" by Richard Cahan and Michael Williams Image: Dorothea Lange, Centerville, California May 9, 1942 . #neveragain #ExecutiveOrder9066 #thentheycameforme #unconstitutional #dontrepeathistory #muslimban #travelban #history #photography #exhibition #sanfrancisco #WWII #WW2 #japaneseamerican #day#dayofrememberance #kor#korematsu #knowyourhistory #socialjustic #takeaction #thentheycameforus #EnenyAlien #unamerican #dayofrememberance #korematsu #americanhistory #dorothealange #jtown #japantown #littletokyo #nisei #littletokyola
