Japanese Internment Unspoken Hypocrisy
We all know of the horrors that went on in Germany during the second World War, with

taking down the Nazi power. For example the United States releasing a comic book in ​August
1941 featuring a cover of a war bond defeating world leaders,(WarHistoryOnline) such as a man
who vividly resembled Adolf Hitler.
Despite a pretty large majority of then being U.S Citizens...
