    • POEM: Will V-Day Be Me-Day Too? by Langston Hughes (10/23/2007 11:47:00 AM)

      Sadly, this was the great and terrible irony of WWII. While we fought against fascism in Europe and Asia, African-americans were still facing segregation and Japanese-Americans, whose sons also went to war, lived in internment camps surrounded by barbed wire and guard towers. An african-american soldier in uniform was shot and killed because he didn't sit in the back of the bus. African-american defense workers weren't allowed to learn skilled jobs or become foremen or supervisors. Classic American policy of talking out of both sides of their mouths. Or, do as I say, not as I do.
