August 10th 1988: Reparations for Japanese-Americans

On this day in 1988, U.S. President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 into law, apologising and providing reparations to Japanese-Americans who were interned in camps during the Second World War. After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, which prompted the United States to join World War Two on the Allied side, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued an executive order allowing the military to relocate Japanese-Americans to internment camps. The order withstood a Supreme Court challenge, and ultimately nearly 120,000 people were held in such camps. Those imprisoned suffered great material and personal losses, with most losing property and some losing their lives to illness or the violence of sentries. There were frequent calls for reparations for this crime against people of Japanese descent, and in 1988 the government officially apologised and provided for $20,000 in compensation for each survivor, with payments beginning in 1990. The 1988 Civil Liberties Act bill received primarily Democratic votes, with many Republican members of Congress voting against it.

“The Congress recognizes that…a grave injustice was done to both citizens and permanent residents of Japanese ancestry by the evacuation, relocation, and internment of civilians during World War II”

April 4th // Researching for an essay is a pain in the ass specially if there’s not a lot of information about the subject but it has to be done because this paper isn’t going to write itself unfortunately. 

Two Little Kittens - Closed RP W/ King-Denmark

Rachel looked up at the ceilings. They were clean, and flat. The layout of this place reminded her a lot of the Ronald Reagan International Airport in Washington D.C.

She certainly was not in Washington D.C.
Nor was she even in the US, or North America. No, she was in Europe. Copenhagen, Denmark, specially.
She had started her journey over 10 hours ago, to a two year exchange student program in Denmark.

She hadn’t even been able to email her host family before she got there. But, she knew that her host family consisted of only one guy. It was sort of creepy, but dear Rachel was suppose to have another exchange student from Australia with her.

Rachel sighed, looking back down at the now moving luggage belt of the luggage claim. This, was her flights luggage.
It was only a once-a-week flight, at least non-stop here. So it was packed. As most flights in the US are. And, as she expected with flying in or out of the US, her luggage seemed to be broken when she saw it. Further inspection confirmed this once it was off the belt. Thank god for duct tape.. She waited for her other bag, also damaged, but not as bad. She pulled that one off, dragging them out of the way.

Digging through them, she checked to make sure nothing was missing. Then, grabbing her role of duct tape, she repaired both of her bags. Next, she stacked them before guiding them back towards the luggage belt. She was suppose to be picked up here by.. A Mathias Køhler, and her fellow exchange student. She had no clue what either of them looked like, since her program was late with an image of them. But, they knew what she looked like. Rachel waited, looking around for anyone, really..
