Malkin: I hate to say anything remotely defending her, but Filipinos were not interned. She would not have been "close enough" by US standards; in fact, Filipinos were one of hte groups that we were defending from the Japanese. Researcher (talk) 22:54, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Farmers and competition[edit]

There is an interesting discussion about the fact that many of the targeted people were in rural areas and lost their farms to their competition. Is that woo, or worth looking into?--Pink mowse.pngGodotoi, putain, genial, merci 20:40, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't think it's woo...Wikipedia mentions it, and it looks like there were efforts (albeit not entirely successful) to redress the losses. -- Seth Peck (talk) 20:54, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
There was the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 to give some redress. As I recall, it was $20000 and a letter of apology from the US government.Wzrd1 (talk) 03:07, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
At least in British Columbia (Canada, if you don't know) there was ALOT of theft of Japanese property. Not so much farms, but ALOT of stuff in Vancouver and the such. --Revolverman (talk) 03:20, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
