always the "fun" part of living in a multi-cultural society. in fact i think the op had an interesting point. that is exactly why the interment
camps happened. the Japanese of that era tended to cluster the same way. especially in coastal areas. this did cause great concern for people worried
about "spies" in their midst. in all honesty most likely even a valid concern in many ways. as there were some spies, even some cases where the
"spy" didn't even know they were spying. was it wrong to lock them all up? in todays PC world yes, but in all honesty maybe it was warranted to
some degree. just like all arabs aren't terrorists but we are told to keep watch anyway.
as for the "closed society" aspect thats just human nature, in fact in big cities you almost always have the, chinese communities, italian, german,
polish, jewish ect, everyone tends to group around together where there is a common language or even religion. its a comfort thing. heck i lived in an
italian area when i was younger, guess what many of THEM couldn't speak english either. i used to work in a indian area, guess what many of THEM
can't speak english either so no conspiracy in not speaking english.
now there was also mention of chinese gangs, that would be the tongs i guess.
well yet again nothing new there.
there is also japanese
yakooza, the russian mob, geman mob, and can't forget about the italian mob or jewish mob either.
yet again it's a comfort thing more trust
when "in the family" so to speak. so yet again no conspiracy there.
as for concern about chinese spies. of course there are. just as (you guessed it
), there are israeli, russian, brittish,canadian, vatican, and
spies from pretty much every county and interest in the world. at work in pretty much every country on earth. so yes chinese spies IS a valid concern.
probably not worth the effort of locking them all up tho. if we did that EVERYONE would be locked up under a valid concern we might be spying for
welcome to the real world where EVERYONE spys on everyone else be it an enemy or even a friendly power. companies spy on other
companies. heck even our government tells us to spy and report anything suspicious that goes on around us.
