In the 50's & 60's , when I was in the Scouting program , most of the men leaders often talked together about the war. In their mind , the Japanese were little sub-human yellow monkeys who should be killed without mercy , like a pesky annoying bug. Most felt it was too bad they didn't have enough atomic bombs to kill off all the Japanese. They way they thought back then (during and after the war) is 360 degrees from the way we see Japan as a friend and ally now. The anti Japanese propaganda was strong and effective enough to put the Japanese in camps and worse. Now we look back on the camps as a true stain on America and it's freedoms. I posted a few of the posters from after the Pearl Harbor attack that were popular during the war(hard core hate).
