Racism in World War II America (Anti-Japanese and and Anti-Asian)

Welcome to the newest episode of the American Studies and History podcast.  In this episode we explore the argument that racism towards people of Japanese descent was a wartime phenomenon – but racism during World War II was not unique.  Looking beyond the limits of that war, we discover that many of the prejudices and biases which were leveraged against the Japanese fit into a much broader patterns of racial discrimination which stretches from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth.  As a bonus feature, this episode contains an audio-only version of the short documentary “Race and Racism  in Early American Superhero Comics”.
