The internment of the Japanese played a large role in the history of our country. It shaped the relationship between two races, and shaped the U.S. into the country it is now. It was a dark time in U.S. history, and could have been avoided if the United States would have dealt with it differently and with more diplomacy. The loyalty that was shown by the Japanese was an obvious indicator that they posed no threat of sabotage or spying. In addition, although it was a time of war, the breaches in the constitution were enormous. For many reasons, the internment of the Japanese was a failure of diplomatic judgement by the United States.
