Where as the Japanese inherited jobs that the Chinese had, the Japanese also inherited many of the prejudices. William Hosukawa and Robert Wilson's book, "East to America: A History of the Japanese in America" also covers the internment of Japanese Americans. Hosukawa said it's important to understand that we're all immigrants of sorts and that the Japanese have made a contribution to the greatness of this country.
