Today is Fred Korematsu Day! In 1983, lawyers from Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Asian Law Caucus challenged the Supreme Court’s notorious 1944 decision in Korematsu v. United States. After four decades, Mr. Korematsu was finally vindicated of his criminal conviction for defying the Japanese American internment during World War II.

It was only 70 years ago that the United States government stripped thousands of American citizens of all their rights (when they needed them the most) based solely on their ethnicity. Just another reminder that we don’t have rights in this country, we have privileges, and the government can take them away from you whenever they want (Hi NSA violating our right to privacy) Good day.
