Thursday Jan. 6, 1944
You probably think I’m cheating with this headline and feeding you the news of 2016 rather than of 1944. I can’t blame you when Representative Clair Engle of California is calling for a ban on Japanese immigration after the war. Our national motto may be “E pluribus unum” – one from many – but since the first Europeans came to this county, Americans in the demographic majority have been defining the “many” as whoever looks like them and worships as they do. In Europe, despite being pressed by Russia on one side and the Allies on the other, Nazis are implementing ethnic cleansing against Jews and Slavs and have massacred 1,000 Greek men and boys.
